Blue Point White IPA

My buddy Greg brought home a growler of Blue Point White IPA from Long Island and gave me a call to come over and share it with him. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of Belgian yeast, wheat, peppercorn, lemon, and grass. The taste is dry and bitter with plenty of peppercorn, grass, lemongrass, and wheat. There is a bit of Belgian yeast that sweetens the finish and the after taste stays warm and dry. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. This was my first exposure to the White IPA style, and I thought it was quite tasty and refreshing. It had a good amount of spices with a good sweetness to it.
