Blue Moon White IPA

BEST OF BOTH STYLES

For our white IPA our brew masters wanted to combine the citrus flavors of an IPA with the smooth, balanced malts of a Belgian white Belgian-Style Wheat Ale. They began by experimenting with hop after hop until they found the perfect combination of four hops, including a rare German hop called Huell Melon. The result is a pronounced citrus and fruity hop taste, perfectly balanced by wheat, coriander, and orange peel. We bring the best of two styles together to craft an IPA with a unique twist. Hoppy. Unfiltered. Balanced.

Available in 12-oz. bottles, 6-packs, and draft in select markets. Available nationally April 1, 2015.
