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.

The body is a slightly hazy, light amber/autumn color, dwarfed by a positively frothy, long-lasting slightly golden-white head. Faint aroma, with hints of roasted citrus. A little sweetness that hangs around at the end but medium bitterness throughout, with a punch/bite just before the sweetness. A bit of fullness to it, with a fizzy feeling left behind with the sweetness. A decent beer that gets better as you work your way down, but overall leaves a lot to be desired. Worth having tried, but probably not again.

The aroma is malty and hoppy with grassy hops and biscuit like malts. The appearance is golden with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with good balance but a slightly astringent finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a good beer.

Not bad, not great. A very solid summer beer. It has the malty aroma and a nice clear light amber look. The head is big and fluffy and stays a while. The taste is nice and clean, a bit of malt followed by hops. Finish is a tad thin but all in all, decent.

3.50$ bomber at the local. Golden straw with fading white head, small lace. Nose of citrus, pine, caramelized sugar. Pretty mediocre flavor- watery, piney hops. Slightly astringent finish. Drinkable.

I doubt i would ever randomly buy a beer from blue point...well my local bottle shop had this in bombers for less than $3. I bought a bottle. If these dudes had a brew or best buy date on this, i would have bought more. Anyways...its pretty damn good.....well balanced and hoppy....i like it...if they still have a few bottles left next week...i’ll buy a few at under $3. At $3 a bomber....its a solid value and would buy all day at that price

Drank from the tap at the Blue Point Brewery. Aroma of fresh hops and a slight hint of citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter, with a crisp little hoppy bite at the end.
