A – Bright and stormy straw gold. Beautiful, almost saison-like, white head. Nice lace and great retention.

S – Sweet honey, chamomile, soft yeast, banana, and a stellar mango note.

T – Opens soft and malty for a moment befoe exploding with juicy mango and orange. A floral bitterness rounds out the backend and keeps the sweetness in check.

M – Pillowy with a smooth, fully body. Nice carbonation livens the profile.

O – . Incredibly drinkable with stellar balance and a great flavor profile, this is definitely my surprise beer of 2011. Imho this is the best beer BluePoint has ever put out, and the style is a totally new direction for them

A very piney-hops aroma. Looks like an American Light Lager, not as hazy as one would expect from a Belgian-style IPA. Head quickly dissipates. Tastes of tangerine and juniper with a little bit of licorice. It has a slightly thick mouthfeel, but in a pleasant way. It coats your tongue and gives you a depth of flavors. Very little carbonation.

I'm not sure what makes it a White IPA, I suppose I have some research to do. However, this was a wonderful, complex beer that would be great in the summer, or really anytime. This beer really lets you appreciate the hops as an IPA should, but balancing that with the yeast. My favorite Belgian IPA, I hope this becomes a year-round offering.

a light hazy orange-yellow with 2 fingers of white fluffy head and nice retention.
smells of orange peel, coriander, pepper, bready yeast, grassy hops (very saison - like)

spicy bitterness up front balanced up immediately with a sweet orange/coriander taste. bready, spicy yeasty flavor in the back. a very delicious offering from blue point - probably their best tasting beer in my opinion (so far).

light-medium body, moderate with carbonation.. a spicy/creamy feel on the lips.

a very refreshing ale, very tasty, and as far as the brewery's releases go - this is one of their best.
