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, it’s fermented with German yeast to give it a perfectly balanced character with less bitterness than traditional IPAs.

On tap at Mug’s Ale House in Williamsburg. Pours a bright, hazy golden orange. Citrus hops and curacao on the nose. Floral and sweet-smelling, with some yeast notes. Taste is sweet and floral.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Draft at Tap 42. Pale gold, small but stable head. Looks like an English summer ale. Smells chewier than expected, or at least was hoping for. Sweet whispers of orange plus coriander, but simplistic. Feels heavier and graver than it should, as the flavors are thin and inconsequential except for the sharp herbal perfume oils in the finish. I can see where they’re going, but they haven’t arrived. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2012
Quite pale straw colour. Thin head. Aroma is quite floral w some vague hop notes. Sweet and lightly spicy but there is some bandaid in there as well. Overall the package is more interesting than effective.

kgobetzbass (2) - - JUN 10, 2012 does not count
Pours beige with a think, foamy-white head, lasts a while. Fairly present on the nose, hints of yeast and some citrus/grapefruit. Clean beginning and very smooth, not all that much flavor despite the aroma. Finishes a little bitter but doesn’t linger. Overall I’m proud to be a Long Islander ;)

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of malt, hops, tropical fruit, fruit, chamomile, and a hint of yeast. Poured yellow/gold with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, flowers, hops, yeast, and fruit. Medium body. Oily, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly bitter, hops, fruit, tropical fruit finish is lightly dry.

Cask. Pours a murky yellow. Aroma is tons of citrus and tons of hops. Taste is nice and mild, very, very drinkable. Very little bitterness compared to a lot of the hops ipas out there. Gotta try more from these guys. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Draft… Cloudy yellow ale with a large, fluffy, white head that never fully dissipates. The bouquet is a monastic, bastardy blend of fruity Belgian esters and spicy Belgian phenols intermingled with a copious amount of PNW and dank, funky hops. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is pleasant and well-balanced, although I could do without the clove phenol. Everything else is good here. Finishes crisp and a touch spicy, but mostly clean. American IPA meets Belgian wit. Basically, a bastardization of two styles I’m not fond of. Stop the white IPA madness now!

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Plastic pint draft at the brew pub in Patchogue, New York. The pour is a hazed golden light orange, with a smallish off white head. The aroma is citrus peach, light wheat grain and a pleasant soft Belgian yeastiness. The taste bursts with fresh citrus fruit, the light peach sweetness, a nice mild toast malt and finishes with interesting floral yeast notes. The palate is really crisp, medium to light bodied, pleasant unfiltered mouth feel. Tasty stuff.
