growler to glass. pours a medium orange color with eggshell head with mild lacing. the aroma is mild to medium malt base with mild to medium hop nose, mostly medium citrus blend. the flavor starts out medium malt and hoppy and then the illusion takes hold and quickly dies off. this does have a good flavor and then mysteriously falls off the tongue to never land. I could say another ab inbev flop so why not...just needs some tweaking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I continue to have positive experiences with Blue Point's line up of brews, this their IPA was a pleasant exceptionally malty rendition of the style. Standard amber/copper IPA appearance, aroma is citrus and herbal hops and warm malty notes. Taste has a strong caramel malt baseline with a suddenly tart piney bitter finish. Balanced overall but there is more flavor intensity on the malty side than on the hoppy side. Finishes dry, medium bodied. Surprisingly strong ABV, no boozy notes in the taste. I would drink this again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a soft bronzed burnt brown color with a slim transparency about it. Carbonation rises at a nice pace. A one finger white foamy head dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing clung nicely in a mild filmy foamy manner.
The smell had some earthy and grassy hops rolling over a light herbal quality and having a nice caramel backbone to it.
The taste copied the smell and added a light tobacco in the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat fairly dry with an okay sessionability about it. Carbonation felt right as an IPA. Bitterness seemed decent.
Overall, I don’t mind it for me, but there’s a part of me that wants to say this is closer to an English IPA because of the way the hops come across and the smell and flavor. I could see myself having this again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a white head. The aroma is lightly fruity, with grainy malts and some citrusy hops. It’s full-bodied and nicely carbonated, semi-dry, with a too solid malty backdrop. Decent bitterness, citrusy hops and a generic fruityness too. Rather short finish. Nothing impressive going on here, it drinks easily but fails to impress in any way. 150624

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, caramel and herbal hops. Body is medium and smooth. More malt than hops here, caramel, bread crust herbal and earthy hop on the palate. Finish is long, dry, bitter. It is more East Coast IPA.

Pours a clear light amber with two fingers of off-white head. Aroma is a sugary floral citrus. Flavor is bitter and sweet with more floral character and and a crisp bitterness that has a rubbery mouthfeel to it.
