I've had several. Hop selection is critical to work with and not clash against the Belgian yeast character. Anchorage's Galaxy IPA is great. I enjoyed the aforementioned Chainbreaker on a Portland trip earlier this year.

Not that it's accessible, but Boxing Cat in Shanghai made a great one last summer using WLP400. I wish I could recall the hop bill. I think Citra was in the mix which is the primary hop of their pale ale.

Ok. Is a white IPA supposed to be w Belgian wit yeast? Seems to me it would work better w US05, so you could do a wider variety of hops without worrying about clashing with yeast. I think of it more of a wheat IPA on the lower end of the IBU spectrum. I guess it can be whatever you want. Before someone successfully made a white IPA the first time, sticklers were probably saying "you cant do an IPA with all that wheat and such light color!"

A white IPA is a fusion of witbier with IPA. If one doesn't use a witbier, or at least Belgian, yeast, then it's difficult to say that it's witbier-derived, isn't it?

No need to be snarky. It could just as easily be an IPA based on an American wheat ale.

Although maybe that would be called wheat IPA. I don't know. I think I will experiment w both. I am intrigued.

We finally tracked down the Chainbreaker and really enjoyed it. I've been seeing a lot of all-grain clones, but I don't suppose someone has come up with an extract version?

I believe there was a recipe for it in a Zymurgy issue last year. I will see if I still have it.

Harpoon is releasing a white IPA this weekend in our area (Hudson Valley/Connecticut). Not sure how big the distribution will be but looking forward to it.

Saranac White IPA is not good. You can tell because it says "Saranac" on the bottle.

...Digs aside, it's one of the less mediocre beers Saranac has to offer. I still wouldn't advise going looking for it.

Has anyone tried the Ghostrider white IPA out of Utah? It's really really good. Better than the others I've tried, to be honest. More recently have had Sam's whitewater and Lagunitas sumpin'. The Ghostrider is much better balanced.
