Specialty IPA: White IPA

BJCP 21b

Overall Impression
A fruity, spicy, refreshing version of an American IPA, but with a lighter color, less body, and featuring either the distinctive yeast and/or spice additions typical of a Belgian witbier.

A craft beer interpretation of American IPA crossed with a witbier.

American craft brewers developed the style as a late winter/spring seasonal beer to appeal to Wit and IPA drinkers alike.
Pale and wheat malts, Belgian yeast, citrusy American type hops.
