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.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Appearance: Orange breads under a massive white head that fades lacy, patchy, and rocky. Swirls bubbly and patchy.
Nose: Lemon oils and green grass blades. Crispy white crackers and wheat crisps underneath. Aloe and agave in the back. Sweet Hawaiian rolls. Dew-drops. Key lime and grapefruit oils.
Palate: Orange oils followed by orange peel with grass, straw, and bread crusts on top of the tongue. Lemon and grapefruit oils. Deliciously soft chewy bready mouthfeel kissed with just enough sweetness. Fresh agave. Fresh orange slices. Pine and mint in the back.
Final Thoughts: To date this is still my favorite White IPA and judging by how hard it is to get ones hands on a bottle (or can) when the beer is released proves I am not the only one. Deliciously vibrant and sessionable. The best Blue Point beer yet.

Draught@RNH. Slightly hazy yellow color, small steady white head. Green grassy aroma. Light to medium bodied. Light grassy and grapefruity hoppyness. Fruity pils? malty flavors. Very plain.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Witiber yellow with a fluffy white crown. Aroma is grainy with coriander, lemon peel, black pepper, citrus and yeast. Taste is off with coriander, citrus, grains, dusty malt and a mild bitter finish. Something is amiss here.

jflopsu (501) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Pours a pale yellow. Has a faint sweet aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is sweet for an IPA with some bitterness to start with a sweet and smooth ending.

jfb (3683) - GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
(can) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of rotten apricots, straciatella yoghurt, grainy pale malts, grass and onions. flavour is mostly the same, with additional notes of kiwi and cactus juice, slightly yeasty, sweet and green. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

glennmastrange (2217) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Can. Light to moderate malt note of grain, moderate perfume and spruce for the hops, faint soap for the yeast, and coriander in the background. Head is average size, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly acidic to start, then finishes slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Light perfumey hops blend well with the grainy malts in this IPA.

bartlebier (1528) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2013
12oz can bought at Mondial de la bičre, Mulhouse. At first seemingly unusual and oxymoronic crossover between a yeast-dominated and a hop-dominated style, but it sort of works. Clove, pepper, koriander and orange zest from the wit, a fair hop perfume from the IPA hops. Light-bodied like a watery blanche, superficially hoppy like a decent APA. Still, the style, just like Black IPA, adds a surprising subcategoric dimension to its parent beer, yet remains the wussy albino among IPAs in the icebox...

On tap at Southwest Porch, Bryant Park, NYC, pours a hazy golden yellow color. Nose is cloves, banana and spice. Taste is spicy, with cloves and yeast. Ends on the same tasting notes, does not taste like an IPA to me . Quaff Score 6 / 10
