Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Sweet with some fruit esters and a mild warming with some grain. A lightly floral citrus character but bread y at the same time. Okay.

blipp (5884) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. The aroma is fruity sweet with sweet malt notes. The flavor has some toffee like sweetness, grain, and a light hoppy finish. Not bad.

Naka (703) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2008
On tap at D’s in Monroeville. Pours a clear golden color with a small foamy bone white head. Some nice lacing. Nose of sweet apple, fresh grass clippings, and a mild hop bitterness. Very crisp, yet kind of weak flavor. A little pilsy with a slight fruit character and dry mild hop finish. Pretty light body with a good bitey carbonation.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2008
There is nothing interesting about this beer. If you could possibly imagine an "Imperial Budweiser" as in, a Bud that is given some extra attention in all categories minus the skunk, you basically have this. So what we are left with is a little bit of honey sweetness and a little bit of hop backing, but nothing that really makes it worth anything.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2008
On tap at hop devil grill in NYC. Decent better that the regular ipa but still just fair. Strong yet drinkable but no very complex.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Tap @ BP. Hazy light copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma is light and malty. Light malt flavor with a crisp and dry moderately bitter finish.

zach8270 (3370) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2007
(cask conditioned @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear golden color with a soapy white head. Aroma is confusing a bit. Spicy and slightly hoppy with a damp earth note at the end. Hard to place. Flavor is sweet at the start then very damp and has a slight bitterness at the end. Didn’t know this was as strong as it was.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Tap @ Blue Point Brewery. This was a puzzler, and even now, hours after trying it, I can’t quite render a verdict. The beer pours golden with a nice white head and barely noticeable lacing. The taste is smooth and dominated by spicy and bread notes with citrus and a slight hop characteristic thrown in. A very interesting brew, and a commendable experiment for Blue Point. A for effort, Incomplete (though good) for the beer.

BuckeyeSammy (537) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Light fruity aroma, golden orange color with white head. Well balenced carbintion. Not bad, i would drink this again. Had this at the waterfront ale house in Brooklyn Heights.
