Point White IPA

This India Pale Ale is from Stevens Point Brewery of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. It is part of their new sampler pack of various IPA styles. It includes a White IPA, a Peach Mango IPA, a Spruce Tip IPA, and the One Shot IPA, that will be brewed with a rotating single hop. They are all 5.5% ABV with the exception of the first One Shot, which is 6.0% ABV and features Calypso hops.

The White IPA features Sorachi Ace hops from Japan, along with Palisade.  This beer has 40 IBU's. The beer pours golden in color, clear, yet deep and shiny. There is about an inch of pure white head. The aroma is light and airy, citrusy and floral, with a bit of passion fruit. The taste follows the aromas, hitting all the same notes, just more intensely, ending in a quite bitter and dry finish. It is easy drinking and refreshingly carbonated.
