From Red Collar Brewing in Kamloops in the Thompson Okanagan comes their “White IPA”. The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head. The aroma consists of citrus rind, grapefruit, wheat, caramel and floral hops. The flavour is of citrus, citrus rind, grapefruit, yeast, spice, wheat, caramel and hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 52. I am not always sold on White IPA’s but this one hits the spot.
Commercial Description: A beer that bridges continents and blends styles. Built upon the foundation of unmalted wheat, this beer was dry hopped three separate times with Ahtanum and Mosaic hops. The result is a refreshingly light beer with an abundance of berry and grapefruit aromas.
