This re-release of our 2011 Collaborations Series No. 2 White IPA brings back the unique marriage of a classic Belgian wittier to an American IPA. We enjoyed the experience so much the first time around that we happily pressed Control+C (Command+C for Mac), and Reboot was born. Version 2.0 has upgraded its spicy aroma, with hints of bubblegum and clove. Bold flavors will launch upon uncorking, as sage and lemongrass balance the tangy, zesty wheat malt profile. Rather than merely blending a wittier with an IPA, Reboot harmonizes distinctly fruity Belgian yeast overtones with big, fruity American hop notes by creating an herbal bridge between these two somewhat contradictory flavors. The beer's complexity os supported by a spritzy effervescence, finishing dry, with lingering hop notes.

One of the most unique characteristics of Reboot White IPA is its aroma. Sage and lemongrass were added to the vessels post-fermentation, as well as three varieties of hops chosen for their aromatic qualities. The combination of herbs and hops creates an almost spicy, peppery quality in the finish, while the Belgian-style yeast strain adds hints of bubblegum and clove.
