I recently had a couple of local NY "White IPAs" A combination Belgian WIT and an American IPA. One by Saranac and the other by Blue Point. (I prefer the Saranac) My lovely wife also could not get enough of the Saranac and I decided I had to try to put one of these together. I took a couple bottles to my LHBS and my fav beer store to get their opinions and they loved my take on this mix of styles.
The IBUs look high but there is a really nice balance between the wheat and hops. I might add a little more of the coriander to the next batch that is on deck again for the next brew day I get.
I have been having poor efficiency lately so you may have a higher OG then I had. Only about 65% eff the past few batches :-(
