I recently read about white IPAs and I'm really curious to try one before to trying to brew it.
Are white Ipas still available commercially? Is there one anyone would recommend? I'm in the SF Bay Area.
Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA, Saranac White IPA, Linchpin White IPA (San Diego, CA), White Bluffs Brewery (Richland, WA) has a couple.
Thanks. Am I going to have to find a craft beer specialty shop? I tried Bevmo today and mostly just confused the staff.
I can usually find Deschutes and Saranac products at better liquor stores. Check your local grocery stores, too.
Harpoon has a white ipa
im not a big fan of the chainbreaker. but that is the only one of the style i have had.
Whitener Street Brewing Co.
This one is pretty good: http://www.hsbeer.com/beer/riptide/
If you can find one. Try the Heavy Seas Riptide. It is a white ipa and is outstanding.
I'm hooked on Deschutes Chainbreaker at the moment. Me and my buddy just brewed a Wheat IPA last night, can't wait to try it. That's definitely our favorite style of beer at the moment.
I am in SF too and 99.9% sure they have Chainbreaker at our BeMo's. I am 100% sure I saw it today at Albertson's/Lucky's(?) on Fulton at Masonic for $8/6pk.
Love it! cheers. Wendy
edit: oh you said "SF Bay area" not SF. same answer tho!
