I have tried enough times and finally I can say no more “WIPA”. The “W” must stand for “worthless”. This style has almost no taste. I used to drink a crap load of Belgian Witbier for years and years and then one day I dropped it like a hot potato. Could never get back into it again.
Quoting from this site on the style: White IPA should not be confused with Belgian IPA. (…) it technically is a “Belgian” IPA, but it derives much more from the “Witbier” half of “Belgian Witbier” than the “Belgian.”
This one, on the other hand, is delicious. But then, I drink almost everything from this brewery. This DDH version is a lot better than their standard IPA. Unfortunately, it was a small batch and was gone in no time. I went back to the beer shop the following week to buy more but there was only an empty space where this beer previously occupied.
Made 2 trips to the bottle shops:
Most beers in this box are in cans…
Estonian and Finnish beers, only in bottles. Both breweries make strong dark ales which are suitable for “ageing” and they prefer bottles for this purpose.
