This is Short’s take on a white/Belgo IPA brewed with rhubarb and caliente hops. Should be interesting.

7.0 ABV.

Pours a light tan-gold color. There’s a light aroma with some floral notes—what I assume is rhubarb as well. Tastes spicy and grassy and piney, with a dry and bitter finish.

White IPA brewed with Rhubarb and Caliente hops.

A hazy pale yellow Belgian India White Ale with impressive aromas of sweet lemon, bright grapefruit, subtle nutmeg and hints of pine. Caliente hops and Belgian yeast create a fruit filled bubblegum sensation, that’s enhanced further by the addition of tart rhubarb. The finish turns abruptly toward an intense spicy bitterness that smacks the palate leaving a lasting dryness.
