Cask @ Rattle n Hum, served in an imperial pint glass. The beer presents with a glowing clear light brown color. Atop of that sits a nice thick white head with a sticky lacing. The aroma is a mix of watery tea from the malts and juicy hops, not too strong and similar to fruit punch (think Hawaiian Punch). The flavor, on the hand hand, is more aggressive in its hoppiness with more bitterness coming through. I do not detect and spiciness of toast from the rye but just a tea like maltiness. The best part of this beer come from the cask, which is actually served at the proper cask temperature. This also allows for an undercarbonated mouthfeel, which makes for a velvet like feel on the cheeks. Similarly, the head produced is pretty to look at. The beer itself is very plain and average, which goes right along the other Blue Point products.

GT2 (9360) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 20, 2009
On tap. Pours a clear, darker amber with a modest, off-white head. Good retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of rye bread, fennel seed, toasted/bready malts, tropical fruits. Taste is orange juice, citrus, rye malt, caramel, black pepper. A strange concoction but very enjoyable. Reminds me of a great, fresh microbrew. Excellent.

(draft) Medium off-white head atop clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange/floral, light rye. Taste is moderately sweet, orange/floral, some rye. Smooth light-medium body, some resin. One of the best beers at integrating the rye into the flavor.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2009
Growler. Aroma of tropical fruits, rich, sweet, rye malt with a nougat character. Flavor is very sweet, surprisingly sweet almost, considering all the hoppy, tropical fruit notes that continue to come through. Pretty simple, and a bit too sweet for me to want to finish a whole pint, but not bad either.

dogfish120love (1033) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2009
Pours amber/copper in coloration. a somewhat hoppy aroma . The rye is undoubtedly noticeable in the flavor yet an ipa esc quality shines through it due primarily to the notable grapefruit flavor.
