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.

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 itís an easier drink.

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 Iíd probably guess wit/Belgian. Meh.

Can from ABC on Betton. Spicy, grain, lemon and yeast in the aroma. Tastes are bready - similar to smell but everything is light. Makes it easy drinking, but not lot going on.

I was one of the first to taste this publicly last August at the Mickey Hart show at the brewery. Finally found it again at the NYC Craft Beer Festival. The nose was very yeasty with banana esters, tangerine, clove, very wheaty, medicinal. Smooth palate, hoppy and spicy finish. Feels too estery, possibly flawed, Iím undecided, but I need more than a 1 oz. taste.

Quite pale straw colour. Thin head. Aroma is quite floral w some vague hop notes. Sweet and lightly spicy but there is some bandaid in there as well. Overall the package is more interesting than effective.

Draft at Proof. Golden pour with a fluffy white head. Nose is overly phenolic and estery with hop spice and lemon. Flavor is pale malt sweetness, phenols and touches of spicy hops. Finishes sweet and chewy. Not my thing.

Draft. Watered down wheat beer IMO. Nothing special, easy drinking, good for summer. Id have it if there was nothing else

Enjoy most of Blue Pointe beers. White IPA is clear and crisp. While it is mildly hoppy, it has a nice citrus aroma and taste. It smells as it will be a more biting hop taste but is quite mild.

Light drink. More ipa than white. Light yellow color. Toasty corn and hay aroma. Some spice and light citrus flavor bit of banana.
