Generous amount of selected hops balance out the malty backbone of this delicious golden India Pale Ale.

Sorry but I really don't care for this beer at all. I like IPAs. But this is not hoppy and is thin through out. Lacing is nice. Color is fine. A little citrus but that's about it for me.

Slightly hazy orangish pour with thin white head. Aroma of herbs not to my liking. Strong bitter hop flavor has very little balance. Dry back-of-throught finish. Not interested in having another.

A nice dark deep amber color. Floral hoppy aroma. Very upfront hoppy flavor, with a sort of spicy/hoppy end of the mouth taste feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle from tderoeck. Many thanks! Amber colour, white foam. Sweet malty with notes of tropical fruit, grapefruit and pines. Light sweet, bitter finish. Good IPA

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