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.

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 theyíre going, but they havenít arrived. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a thin white head. Nice aroma from the Belgian yeast. Good hop presence in the finish.

DialSquare (2555) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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.

12oz can, which Iím pretty sure I got from Perfect Pour. Split with Robotopera in between wake boarding sets. Zesty, citrus taste up front. Some belgian yeast. Hard to judge color from the metal cup. Looks kind of amber,w ith a good bubbly off-white head leaving good thicker lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lightly soft, kind of tingly lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Kind of zesty spicy light to moderate sweet taste. Light bitter. Hint of metallic. OK white IPA.

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.

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
