What's the Deal With White IPA?

Fashion codes dictate that you can wear white only from Memorial Day till Labor Day. But this summer, several brewers are demanding your beer be snow-hued too.

Last month, Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery and Kansas City, Missouri’s Boulevard Brewing released the fruits of their collaborative labor, a white IPA. I’m sure you’re scratching your skull. You’ve only now begun to wrap your brain around the concept of black IPA, which mate piney, citric bitterness with complementary notes of cocoa and java. Deschutes and Boulevard have taken that concept to the opposite end of the color spectrum, creating a white IPA that’s the offspring of each brewery’s specialties.

Curious how Deschutes' hoppy brews pair with Boulevard's beautiful wheat beers? Check out my full story at Food Republic. Drink it up!
