Wheelhouse and Yellow Dog Brewing Collaboration First Mate White IPA
Wheelhouse Brewing from Prince Rupert, BC worked with Yellow Dog Brewing out of Port Moody, BC to create their First Mate White IPA. The beer pours from the bomber bottle a cloudy golden colour with two fingers of off white head, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. The beer gives off aromas of cereal grains and citrus, followed by notes of mango, tangerine and lemon leading to a tropical fruit-dominant nose. In the mouth, grainy malt tones are very light but present. Some piney hop flavours mingle with spice and orange notes. A hint of banana emerges followed by a resiny finish that ends fairly dry and sharp from the Belgian Wit yeast.
