So, I have had a few "white IPAs" now. And broadly speaking, I have been underwhelmed by what I have had. Now I understand the experimental value of hopping up traditionally less hopped styles. However, I think it is fair to say that some base styles do not lend themselves to this sort of hybridization. Now I have had some more heavily hopped wheat beers before, that are first and foremost wheat beers, and enjoyed them quite a lot -- the now defunct C'racked Wheat from New Glarus comes to mind. Yet, these new white IPAs appear to be a bread of beer all their own (and in my less than humble opinion, a poorer one). So my question to the community is: Are white IPAs simply an inferior conception, or is it a style that is too early in its existence to declare it a failed experiment-- i.e. brewers will find a way to perfect the style such that it can competently compete with core styles?
