A- pale straw body with a sticky white head nice retention and lace

S- very floral hop aroma mixed with orange peel and juice and a subtle spice

T- the start is all floral and tropical mango like hops followed by a light orange and coriander note and then a lightly sweet and bready cracker like finish.

O- really enjoyed getting a draft of thus, it was a perfect thirst quencher after a long day.

A-Pours a moderately cloudy honey/golden color. Head is smaller than anticipated. A thin white layer that dies off. Head does leave consistent lacing strings.

S-Light clove and coriander gives way to some nice tropical fruity hops. Bubblegum notes too. Also some cracker and noticeable grain.

T-Taste is a bit less interesting. Hops are not resounding. The spiced notes of coriander, clove and bubblegum are still there. Hops are lightly floral but stress more citrus than anything else. Low bitterness level.Fairly complex, but not intense in any one area. Grains and cracker with considerable sweetness.

M-A bit syrupy but pleasing.Not very dry or bitter. Vibrating carbonation. Decently sessionable.

O/D-Was expecting a bit more muscularity with the hops. This beer is complex and unique but balanced between all the beer's aspects. A nice take on the White IPA. Not a bad price tag either.

A thanks goes out to woodychandler for keeping me in canned beers. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, hops, and spice. Taste is the same, citrus and spices, hoppy and bitter, a touch of malts. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer. Well done.

I would first like to note that I have been searching for this beer since the beginning of June. After two long months, I finally found it on draft and went and filled my growler.

A - Looks like a slightly cloudy coors light. About a quarter inch of head retention with minimal lacing.

S - citrus and lemon grass here. Very clean and smooth. Almost smells like a Allagash White.

T - clean. A nice sweet malt taste backed up with a very faint hop presence. Lots of citrus, again with the lemon grass.

M - Light and clean. Shortly after sipping, the flavors dissipate and leave you wanting more.

O - This is exactly what I was hoping this beer would taste like. Nothing too over the top, but a very solid beer. This and the toasted lager are the two first beers Bluepoint canned, and I cannot wait to find this in a can, as I think it will taste much better than it already does.

12oz can served in a tulip glass.

L - hazed bright yellow with a white head that thinned to a ring leaving just a few spots behind.

S - lemon flower with a mix of spices and wheat.

T - tart yeast and spices with light bittering on the finish.

F - crisp and light with lively carbonation.

O - a good tasting, refreshing beer.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that left a thin layer of bubbles that nearly completely covered the entire surface.
S: There are light aromas of peppery spices in the finish.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by spices and has a very light amount of hop bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and makes for a good selection if you can’t decide on an IPA or something lighter.

On top at Proof Brewing Co. in Tallahassee on 6/29/12

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.
