12 ounce bottle, $2 single at HyVee, Ankeny, IA. Picked up as part of my scramble to not let November be my month with the fewest ratings ever. Screw-top crown, followed by my sin of pouring into a plain old shaker glass. Appearance is a bright amber, with plenty of thick, orange-y foam. Smell has some light citrus and grassy hop overtones. A fake store brand beer this may be, but at least they are up front about their hop bill. Taste brings up some earthy hop notes suited to an English IPA. This is more hop-forward than their web page suggests. Has a bit of a curdled aftertaste, but that may be my cold speaking. I see that I can trust the Point guys for a solid brew even when contracted.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has grass and earthy pine with a bread backbone. Flavor has a good amount of bread and grains with an earthy pine backbone.

Westchesterco (1538) - mclean, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2015
From a bottle at the RB DC tasting September 6. It is a light amber with a slight head the aroma is citrus and the taste is a bitter with nothing that stands out

Bottle courtesy of HuskerTan, thanks! Clear bright golden amber color, white head. Nice fruity aroma. Tate is bittersweet citrus, mainly orange peel. Tasty.

bigcat03 (228) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle poured into a shaker; pours a nice shade of copper with a small sudsy head and no real carbonation; a little malt to the nose...but not much else; some grassy hops to start...and end. This taste doesn’t develop at all. Mouthfeel is decent which makes it a passable summer/grilling/lawnmower beer.

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Backlog. 12 oz via bottle. Aroma and flavor of citrus, pine and light hop resin. Crisp and pretty easy to drink. Not bad.

bhensonb (12947) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle Julie brought from Illinois. Pours orange/copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is citrus and fruit. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly roasty caramel, and some fruity/earthy hop. It is bitter. Might have been a big deal in 1985.

A middling IPA. Pours amber with a thickish head. Light bready sweetness and an indistinct citrus and grass character.
