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.

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

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Floral hops, yeast, and buttery salted crackers. Nearly clear yellow, slight haze. Certainly bitter, although the standout flavor is a sweet pale malt. Blue Point does explain it like a witbier, but was not expecting such a classic Belgian ale profile. Plenty of fruity nonsense on finish. Smooth medium body. Has a little hop sting which is the only reason to call it IPA.

Hangover (1028) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Cloudy yellow pour with a properly sized white head. Aroma is yeasty, with bisquit and very light citrus. Nice creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Musty, yeasty flavor. Banana, spice, toast, slight citrus notes towards the finish. Unique. Excellent body.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Sample at Rattle N Hum. Hazy straw color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, hops and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of yeast, hops and banana. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can. Nice beer. More white style than IPA. Wouldn’t call it IPA at all actually. I like the hybrid idea. Will drink again

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 26, 2013
canned; from Mondial de la Bière in Mulhouse 2013 - light hazy blond beer with a quite persistent white foam; nice lacework; light citrusy and almondy hoppiness, notes of raisins; quite full-bodied and rounded, fairly carbonated, light astringency, dry and fairly bitter, more hoppy notes of lemongrass and berries ina charming and refreshing conclusion - subtle yet full of character

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.
