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.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2011
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is loaded with really bright zesty/citrusy hops and a lovely yeast contribution. Lean bodied and quite fruity yet has a nice dry malt character. Fruity and fresh tasting. Really a lovely pint. A little bit of clove and maybe some smokier phenolic flavour as it warms up. Either way, itís still tasty

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery hoppy and wheaty aroma with some light citrus notes. The flavor has citric hops, wheat, lightly sweet malts, and flowery hops. I donít know why more people havenít hopped onto the whole "wheat IPA" train, very accessible for new craft drinkers and delicious for the vets. Good stuff right here.

Tap at Tylers bottle shop. Hazy yellow orange with a small white head. Notes of spices, pepper, citrus, tropical fruits. Solid, and very drinkable. A little soapy in the finish.

Can. Hazy gold pour, white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of orange/lemon peel, wheat, citrus, spicy yeast. Taste is moderately bitter, grassy/citrus hop, spicy yeast, wheat malt. Palate is soft, creamy, bitter finish. More of a pale ale than an IPA.

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

Bulk_Carrier (3628) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and a mug. There were no noticeable differences between the two glasses. The appearance was a hazy golden yellow to slight orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The smell had a nice blend of sweet citrus and a light piney to spiciness running underneath. The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and came across pretty sessionable. The carbonation was actually felt in a slight sharp way but wasnít anything off - putting. Overall, good white IPA, though not fully itís own style just yet, this would be a worthy one to be a forerunner.
