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.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Can. Bright golden yellow pour with a clingy white head. Really nice aroma and taste of yeast, wheat, spice, and a bit of floral hop. Excellent.

Enjoy most of Blue Pointe beers. White IPA is clear and crisp. While it is mildly hoppy, it has a nice citrus aroma and taste. It smells as it will be a more biting hop taste but is quite mild.

Really good beer. I am loving there take on the new style of wheat IPAs. The aroma is very citrus hop forward which is great. The base and body is noticeably wheat.

DSG (5632) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy dark yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma of floral and citric hops, wheat, coriander, citrus peels and some yeasty fruitiness. Sweetish fruity flavor with some spiciness and a bitter finish with some floral hops. Medium-bodied. Pretty nice and refreshing.

GT2 (8184) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Tap at Rustico Alexandria. Pours clear golden. Large, frothy white head. Huge webby and sheety lacing. Nose is muted Belgian yeast, lemon peel, orange. Taste is creamy, very soft carbonation. Some alcohol and spicy yeast character. Not a lot of bitterness to warrant white IPA vs just a Belgian ale. But very soft, drinkable, simple with no cloying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tap. deep golden with very small head. belgian elements seem a bit over the top, making this seem slightly unbalanced. not bad though.

shonobiwan (213) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. can poured a hazy golden color with medium white head and slight lacing. I'm general skeptical about hybrid brews but Blue Point came through on this one. Aroma is hoppy but sweet like a wit. Taste is overwhelmingly hoppy but the wheat comes through. A good hybrid! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
