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

Rated at Brew Bern 2012. This was definitely a lighter IPA with a bit of sweetness to it. You get some of the hoppiness coming through, but itís an easier drink.

rbrazell (1457) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Draft at Proof. Golden pour with a fluffy white head. Nose is overly phenolic and estery with hop spice and lemon. Flavor is pale malt sweetness, phenols and touches of spicy hops. Finishes sweet and chewy. Not my thing.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2012
On tap at Mugís 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 (5196) - 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 theyíre going, but they havenít arrived. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (11842) - 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 doesnít linger. Overall Iím proud to be a Long Islander ;)

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Draught at TJís: 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
