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.

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy pale golden color with white head. Smells like a witbier with some citrus hops. Wheat and clove flavors with some dough and citrus hops. Medium body with moderate carbonation. I get what they’re going for but I’m not a fan, probably won’t get again.

Fruity nose with grapefruit and tropics. Grapefruit hops follow through in taste after a light tropical plumb flavor. Not the hopiest but it is a white ipa. Bitter aftertaste remains. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (3910) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Half-foggy, gold beer, white, thin head. Bad can. Smells sprucey, with pineapple and grapefruit and kat whizz. Fresh, lemon-pine flavored. Pretty sweet, citrus peel bitterness, lingering pithy bitterness. Light mouthfeel, aftertaste is lightly astringent and reminded me of slightly green oranges. New Leaf Market.

Despite being kept in his cellar, somewhat off aromas and flavours. Hops there but marginally skunky. Carbonation is OK. Getting yeast, some tastes beyond the off flavours. Mild orange. Some sour in the finish. Can from FlandersNed.

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
12 ounce can from Beer Run. Pours a hazy orange color with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted wheat, floral notes, spice and a bit of bread. The taste is floral hops, spice, citrus, wheat, canned fruit. Medium bodied. Decent.

Can offering..date 9/30/12 on can bottom..so not exactly freshest offering..light yellow color..pillowy head that dissipates..this sure is a hybrid as it has bits of a white mixed with saison taste profile...aroma of spice..grass.orange..melon..pretty interesting to say the least..not really getting any of the ipa in this..however..does have a fairly refreshing mouthfeel and cleanses the palate..would be much better in warmer weather and I could see this being pretty enjoyable yet fairly generic offering..ok..a fresher draft offering is probably much tastier..

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

PhillyCraft (2851) - 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
