OK, I’ve poked around the best I could to get more information on these to try and put something together. Not a clone per se, just something near or in the same ballpark.
Based on numbers from both Deschutes and Boulevard as well as some of the descriptive qualities, I put some ideas down. I ran them past a friend who is a much more experienced homebrewer than I and he offered some tweaks. I’m just an extract brewer for now so I am stuck with those limitations. So here is what I am thinking:

WHITE IPA (Inspired by Deschutes and Boulevard Conflux / Collaboration No. 2) - Extract
9.0 Northern Brewer Wheat Malt Syrup
1.0 Briess Golden Light DME

0.6 oz Warrior (60)
0.5 oz Centennial (25)
0.5 oz Citra (25)
0.5 oz Cascade (10)
0.5 oz cracked coriander (5)
0.5 oz bitter orange peel (5)

0.5 oz Cascade (DH 7 days)
0.5 oz Centennial (DH 7 days)
0.5 oz Citra (DH 7 days)
0.5 oz Lemongrass (DH 7 days)
0.5 oz Clementine zest (DH 7 days)
1.0 oz Sage (DH 7 days)

White Labs Belgian Wit Ale (WLP400)

Color (EBC): 11
Bitterness (Rager): 59.4 IBU
OG: 1.074
FG: 1.018
Alcohol: 7.5%

Some other considerations I am thinking about:
Altering fermentables to 6 lbs of NB Wheat Malt Syrup + 3.5 lbs of NB Pilsen LME (and keeping the Briess DME)
Using Wyeast 3463 “Forbidden Fruit” yeast
Using Wyeast 3944 Belgian Wit

I’m at least a month away from trying this (based on what I have going right now). But wanted to throw this out there and get some thoughts on it. Would love to hear some feedback.

Thanks!

I've talked to one of the brewers, and he hinted of Rosemary being used

That's interesting. Was it one of the Boulevard brewers? Their version is a tad different from Deschutes. They've said they used the same recipe so I've chalked up the differences to water and other variables.

I was just in Indianapolis and had a white IPA called Wise Ass at
3 wise men brewery. 7.5%, 91 IBU's and it was fantastic. They add lemongrass, orange and coriander. I'm hoping to try brewing one soon. I just can't decide on yeast. A wheat yeast or lean ale yeast.

Their website says Belgian yeast. It sounds great and along the same lines as what I want but higher IBUs.

Just emailed Blvd to see if they'll give me any more information about this beer. I'll report back if they give me anything useful. Would LOVE to make a beer that's even remotely like this.

Here's what they sent to me. I'm adjusting my extract recipe slightly based on this


---------------------
Our Collaboration #2 White India Pale Ale featured collaborative brewing efforts with Deschutes Brewery of Bend, OR. While I would love to tell you that this special beer will be made again, at this time there are no plans to do second release.

Here's a bit of info about the recipe for the White I.P.A. I'll throw you some percentages for the grain bill and some IBUs from the hop bill.

Malt %
Pilsner 57.1
Wheat 15.5
Malted Wheat 25.0
Flaked Oats 2.4
We also increased Plato by .5 degrees with a dextrose addition in the kettle

Hops (IBU amounts)
Bravo 21 10 min after beginning of boil
Citra 11.6
Cascade 9
Centennial 8 these three at 65 after
Citra 3
Cascade 1.7
Centennial 2.6 these three at flameout

Dry Hopping/Spices
Citra .113 kg/bbl
Cascade .159 kg/bbl
Centennial .113 kg/bbl
Lemongrass
Sage

Ferment with Belgian yeast at 21 C
Starting Plato should be 17 and finishing should be 3.4

I came up with this recipe called Big White Ass. Brewed it 2/26/12 and it is in primary.

60% 2-row
33% wheat malt
7% Vienna

Cascade, centennial and zythos blend for 58 IBU'S.

I split a 10 gallon batch and pitched s-05 on half and Belgian saison yeast on the other half. I can't wait to see what happens.

So has anyone tried brewing this yet? How did it come out? I'm interested in brewing one of these for the warm weather soon.
