COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remaining at the forefront of experimentation, the brewers at Blue Point have produced a white beer/IPA hybrid that is well on its way to creating a new style for the beer description books. Our White IPA is an unfiltered European-style white ale with a fresh American IPA finish. Brewed with malted and unmalted wheat and just the right amount of west coast hops, itís fermented with German yeast to give it a perfectly balanced character with less bitterness than traditional IPAs.

Very nice hazy light copper and orange coloured body with a good, two centimetre tall off-white head that fades fairly fast. Aroma of coriander seed, yeast, hay, grass, wheat and quite a bit of hops - very typical for this style, and very nice and refreshing while still having a good amount of hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive wheat and curacao flavours with some subdued honey and perfume notes, but a more defined hop character and a mild malt and wheat note finish out the beer. Aftertaste shows a super subtle and defined wheat and yeast characteristic with some light edges of sugars and floral notes. Overall, a more refined and mild option for this style, but still showing a nice character and depth. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 30-March-2014 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 21-August-2014.

Draft notes. Poured hazy gold with white head. Nose was white peppery spicy, wheaty pale malt, hops. Tasted of pale maly, hops, white pepper and mild coriander, mild lemongrassy notes at the finish.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a mug. There were no noticeable differences between the two glasses. The appearance was a hazy golden yellow to slight orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The smell had a nice blend of sweet citrus and a light piney to spiciness running underneath. The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and came across pretty sessionable. The carbonation was actually felt in a slight sharp way but wasnít anything off - putting. Overall, good white IPA, though not fully itís own style just yet, this would be a worthy one to be a forerunner.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
12oz can, which Iím pretty sure I got from Perfect Pour. Split with Robotopera in between wake boarding sets. Zesty, citrus taste up front. Some belgian yeast. Hard to judge color from the metal cup. Looks kind of amber,w ith a good bubbly off-white head leaving good thicker lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lightly soft, kind of tingly lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Kind of zesty spicy light to moderate sweet taste. Light bitter. Hint of metallic. OK white IPA.

MiamiBarman (33) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
From can to cold glass. Very faint hay-smelling, slightly citrus aroma. Pale, hazy straw colored with minimal head. A very neutral flavor that gets better as it gets warmer. The wheat beer influence can be felt but the aftertaste is all IPA. The palate is pretty average and even a little flat along with a mediocre finish. Not much to write home about.

While not groundbreaking, this is a different and very solid beer! It pours gold w/ a white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is hoppy w/ some sweetness blended in. The taste is sweet up front but finishes w/ some IPA bitterness. It has a little bit of a Belgian flavor going on. Itís remarkably well balanced. I kinda dig this one!

Hidden_Pooch (295) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Can. Fun little hybrid. Aroma is of spice, floral, and citrus. Taste kind of orangey and spicy, but with some interesting hop presence. I lighter body than most IPAís, so it goes down easily with little bitterness. A pretty cool idea.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Floral hops, yeast, and buttery salted crackers. Nearly clear yellow, slight haze. Certainly bitter, although the standout flavor is a sweet pale malt. Blue Point does explain it like a witbier, but was not expecting such a classic Belgian ale profile. Plenty of fruity nonsense on finish. Smooth medium body. Has a little hop sting which is the only reason to call it IPA.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Cloudy yellow pour with a properly sized white head. Aroma is yeasty, with bisquit and very light citrus. Nice creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Musty, yeasty flavor. Banana, spice, toast, slight citrus notes towards the finish. Unique. Excellent body.

Dogbrick (7998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Sample at Rattle N Hum. Hazy straw color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, hops and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of yeast, hops and banana. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
