Orange breads under a massive white head that fades lacy, patchy, and rocky. Swirls bubbly and patchy.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Subtle hints of citrus in the nose and flavor, this is a pretty good white beer. I went back for seconds at the tasting.

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!

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.
