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.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Pours a light golden yellow on tap with thin white head that dissipates and little to no lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast and slight hops. Taste follows suit, but the hops are kind of gone. A belgian IPA wannabe.

The aroma is citrus, pepper. The appearance is hazy amber. The flavor is pepper, citrus, lemon especially. The finish is pepper, belgian yeast. Medium in body, slightly thin actually. Pretty good.

Can offering..date 9/30/12 on can bottom..so not exactly freshest offering..light yellow color..pillowy head that dissipates..this sure is a hybrid as it has bits of a white mixed with saison taste profile...aroma of spice..grass.orange..melon..pretty interesting to say the least..not really getting any of the ipa in this..however..does have a fairly refreshing mouthfeel and cleanses the palate..would be much better in warmer weather and I could see this being pretty enjoyable yet fairly generic offering..ok..a fresher draft offering is probably much tastier..

Palidor19 (2946) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2013
A nice assortment of equal malt and hops but its more of an herbal than bitter. The beer has a bit of orange and coriander. Add adds a good punch at the end ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Dogbrick (8119) - 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.

On tap at MacGregor’s. It’s a golden pour with a avg. white head with some lacing. Mild hops aroma. Flavor was of some citurs hops with a good aftertaste of the White spices. Nice change from regular IPA’s.

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