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.

Can into a tulip. Pours hazy hay like a heffe. Slight white head and pretty heavy lacing. Aroma is spicy, yeast, banana, white bread. Nothing of an IPA on the nose. Taste is also overwhelmingly heffe-esque. A bit of a citrus bite, but not much. Not a totally pleasant beer. I hope this style doesn’t catch on.

Not my cup of tea but good for what it is. Yeast and wheat ipa. Good white ipa if you like them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1184) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Pour from a 12oz can. Pale yellow brew, cloudy, with thick white head. Aroma of citrus, resin, yeast. Taste is dry, hops forward, resin and citrus in the finish. Well crafted with no off flavors. If you like wheat IPA’s this would be a great one, personally I am not a fan of the style and would prefer a more conventional malt backbone.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 9/30/2012. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger fluffy bright white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a lot of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, orange peel, grapefruit, coriander, clove, wheat, pepper, floral, herbal, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity of fruity and spicy notes. Taste of lemon, grapefruit, orange peel, pear, coriander, clove, wheat, pepper, floral, herbal, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, citrus peel, light fruits, coriander, clove, wheat, pepper, floral, herbal, and earthiness on the finish fora good bit. Fantastic balance of fruitiness with spices, with very nice complexity; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a moderately creamy and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent white IPA! Great balance and complexity of nicely robust flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

PhillyCraft (3314) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Draft at Barcade. Hazy orange pour light head. Notes were spicy, crisp, weird, very carbonated, coriander. I hated the german yeast in this one, on top of all the gross belgian spice it was too hard to get down. No Thanks

Hazy yellow with white head. Taste and aroma are dominated by grapefruit, lemon and coriander. Works for me.
