Blue Point Hoptical Illusion is you standard IPA pleasant enough for food and casual drinking. Nice moderate fresh hop aroma coming from a golden pour with ample head. Taste is floral with moderate complexity and low bitterness and a nice malt background. Hoptical Illusion is not necessarily a standout, but an enjoyable example of the style.

Bottle: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head and a grapefruit aroma. The hops content gives it a medium high bitterness but the finish balances out with some malt content. An ok IPA but not one of my favorites.

Bottle. Trade with Leighton. Cheers. Hazy, dark gold. Thin, messy, sticky, white head. Looks good. Grainy, toffee malts. Fusty, and a bit dank, orangey hops. Taste is biscuit sweet, then light, pithy bitter. Bit of hop oiliness on the palate. Finishes long, moderate bitter.

Awesome beer. Douchebag wannabe connoisseur reviews aside, this IPA tastes good and three of them will have you buzzing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a lightly cloudy bright orange colour with smaller white head. Aroma is quite citrusy with sweet caramel and bread. Flavour is big on citrusy hops with notes of grapefruit and tangerine, with a solid, sweet maltiness that has lots of breadiness and some caramel. Modest bitterness in finish. Medium body. Nice one.

Rated from notes taken 2 Sep 2011 -- Strong bittering hops, more light on the aroma and flavor hops. I like it, however.

Pour at McGreevy’s in Boston. Dark amber pour with a very slight white head. Nose is malty with a bit of hops. Taste is more on the amber / malty side - some hops if you go looking for it, but tastes more like an amber. Its good, but could use another dose of hops.
