IPA Snapshot--White Birch DIPA

by Jack Horzempa

(I asked long-time, loyal customer Jack Horzempa to taste White Birch Brewing DIPA.  Jack is an accomplished home-brewer with an extensive knowledge of beer and brewing. He also has an experienced palate that is highly respected by all of us here at the beer store. He originally posted this write up on the New Beer Sunday thread on Beer Advocate.  It is posted here with his permission.)

I have a few quick caveats to get out of the way. Firstly I have never heard of White Birch Brewing before so this will be a new experience for me. Secondly I am typically not a fan of the DIPA beer style since more often than not these sorts of beers have a cloying sweetness to them which is not particularly appealing to me. When I am in a mood for hoppy beer I generally reach for an IPA and on some occasions an APA.
