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.

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy pale golden color with white head. Smells like a witbier with some citrus hops. Wheat and clove flavors with some dough and citrus hops. Medium body with moderate carbonation. I get what they’re going for but I’m not a fan, probably won’t get again.

12oz can bought at Mondial de la bière, Mulhouse. At first seemingly unusual and oxymoronic crossover between a yeast-dominated and a hop-dominated style, but it sort of works. Clove, pepper, koriander and orange zest from the wit, a fair hop perfume from the IPA hops. Light-bodied like a watery blanche, superficially hoppy like a decent APA. Still, the style, just like Black IPA, adds a surprising subcategoric dimension to its parent beer, yet remains the wussy albino among IPAs in the icebox...

Pint. Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet, spicy. Clean golden orange.color, good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Lite body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet spice.finish. huh aroma is much better than flavor, flavor just doesn’t have the ooomph of the aroma. Oh well.

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 doesn’t linger. Overall I’m proud to be a Long Islander ;)

Beershine (5201) - 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 they’re going, but they haven’t arrived. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3450) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2012
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 it’s an easier drink.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2012
6/27/12. On tap in a pint glass. Barely hazy, almost clear golden pour with a small frothy khaki head. Mix of resinous hops and orange with that spuced chickeb soup witbier aspect in there as well. Slightly bready malt presence with sweet orange peel and a definite yeast presence in the flavor. There is a noticable hop presence but if this were given to me blind I’d probably guess wit/Belgian. Meh.
