First Mate White IPA – Wheelhouse Brewing (Yellow Dog Brewing Company)

From Wheelhouse Brewing in Prince Rupert in collaboration with Yellow Dog Brewing comes their  “First Mate White IPA”.  The beer pours an orange colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of citrus, tropical fruits, sweetness and floral hops.  The flavour is of wheat, malts, citrus rind, pineapple, citrus, resin and hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 57.  Both breweries are known to make really good beers and this one is no different.  I wish that it was easier to to get beer from Wheelhouse Brewing beer outside of Prince Rupert as they are doing some really good stuff up there.

Commercial Description:  This White IPA balances a delicate malt bill with soft juicy citrus hops and a spicey Belgian Wit yeast. Citra and Mosaic hops are featured beside sweet orange peel.
