Mornington Peninsula White IPA

Mornington Peninsula Brewery (Tribe)

Released March 21, 2012

We've had straight IPAs, double IPAs, black IPAs, rye IPAs. Now it's time for Australia's first White IPA. The latest cab off the rank at Mornington Peninsula is a hybrid between a Belgian Wit and an American IPA that brewer AG first read about in an American brewing magazine. Apparently it was first brewed as a collaboration between Deschutes and Boulevard Brewing, who specialise in Belgian beers. He says: "The idea is too have a souped up version of a witbier, citrus hops complementing coriander and spice, with the beer presenting as a witbier colour wise." The result is aromas "of coriander and citrus hops leading into a crisp, rather dry palate and an ever-present bitterness supporting tart grapefruit and spicy notes." After the success of the equally unlikely Bridge Road / Ní¸gne í? India Saison hybrid, we can't wait to have a taste.
