COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Brewing's Pale Ale has a light golden color but explodes with a rich full-flavor. This refreshing ale is top fermentated and hopped at three different stages of the brewing process. English pale malt lends complexity to this brew. Small amounts of Wheat and Carapils round out the malt bill. Brewed to satisfy the hop lover, this pale ale has an immediate floral-citrus flavor that pervades the overall character of this hoppy, quenching microbrew.

Tap at the Brewery. Pale golden color, not much head. Floral/Citrus aroma, lightly bitter to the taste, dry. Not much to speak about. the produce better with more taste.

Cask at Brazen Head, Downtown Brooklyn. Clear amber/orange with a decent white head, leaving some sheets of lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops. Flavor of grapefruit zest hops,with a tea-like dryness and astringency and a resiny hop finish. My only problem was that it had a too thin, soapy and watery body (which could be viewed as "drinkable" or "goes down smooth"). I’d prefer a bigger palate, but otherwise a pretty good session APA.

On tap at the brewery. Pours Golden, diminishing white head. Herbal hop aroma. Slight malt character, mainly dry hops, drop of honey and a grapefruit bitterness. Not bad.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2006
cask, gravity pour @ Goodbar Special beer night. Body is a hazy gold, veryt hin head w. large bubbles. Nose is first & foremost glorious hop. PLenty of tangerene, citrus (orange, lemon, pineapple) gives way to some light caramel malt. Flavor is light hay, light caramel, orange, resin, tropical fruit. THis is far from the best IPA I’ve had but extremely drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Pale golden beer, white head. Sweet citrusy hops. Simple and cascady. Moderate bitterness and a simple malt bill lets the hops shine. Easy to drink.

PorterPounder (5341) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2005
On tap at the Oyster Bar Restaurant in Grand Central Station, NYC. Solid, standard APA, light orange appearance, fluffy white head with good thick lacing. Sweet floral aroma. Light citrusy flavor, a little bit of malty back end with some nutty accents. Hint of mint in there as well. Mouthfeel could be a tad thicker, but does not detract.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 this is my ’everyday’ beer. I get it locally and very fresh - straight from the brewery!!! it’s smooth, dry and tasty. I highly reccomend it!

Deep golden amber color, clear. Light somewhat thin nose. Roasted, smoky charcoal taste- charred bacon/bacon bits. Slightly chalky texture. Not bad but I’d pass on ordering again.

Still unclear about what makes a style of beer "hoppy fresh". This tasted dry like many English Pale Ales I’ve had, and was very much the heighth of style. Decent color. I would take this over something stronger, for the flavor.

Nice fresh hoppy pale ale. I think this i sway better than thier IPA. Nice very pale yellow color with a nice head and good lacing. Lots of american cirtusy hops which leave a lot of resin on the back of the throat. Very drinkable and gets your attention. Shocking how this is only 4.6%.
