ChazMania (642) - Pasadena, California, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Canned bought from Whole Foods Pasadena. I had this on tap a few weeks ago but this rating is from the can. Aroma- very faint, likely not much dry hopping. Appearance is great, very clear and dark orange gorgeous color. Taste for my palate is more like a Pale Ale (its lighter flavored than Dales Pale Ale), it has a nice hop profile, just not as big/bold/assertive as other WCIPA. I imagine this is what they were shooting for, yet as a freaky IPA hop head, this is more a Pale Ale for me. For a Pale Ale, I’d likely give it a 4.0. For an IPA I will keep 3.4 for now. I want this brewery to succeed and for them to get ALOT of my business, which I will gladly give them, I need a 7% IPA.

Chuckaduck (610) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Pours a clear dark green-amber with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, hoppy, pine, clean and simple. Taste is citrus, pine, yeast; nice and simple. Mouth feel is chewy; well carbonated; not bad.

foamyhead (16) - California, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Point The Way has the taste, smell, look and mouthfeel consistent with top shelf California IPA’s like Union Jack 7.5%, Torpedo 7%, Alesmith IPA 7%, Sculpin 7% etc At 5.2% Point The way delivers on the promise of a satisfying hoppy beer with a lot less booze.

bb (6719) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Grapefruit aroma. Nice grapefruit and tropical fruit flavor with spice. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Tropical fruit and grapefruit lingers with light earthiness.

marcus (6022) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours light copper with a decent off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a mellow caramel malt flavor with a nice hoppy bitter finish. Very well-crafted.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
On draft at Beer Revolution. This was a really nice surprise. It pours a beautiful golden color with a very rich, creamy white head. The aroma is nicely fresh hoppy with grass and some tropical fruit with a hint of caramel malt. The flavor is nicely balanced yet hop forward for a lower alcohol IPA. I picked up grass, canteloupe, tropical fruit, and just a hint of caramel sweetness. It had a nice bitter finish. This reminded me of Firestone Pale 31, only with a tad more malt balance. I’m impressed.

gd4evr (13) - Mar Vista, California, USA - NOV 15, 2011
This beer should be a perfect 5, but it’s hard to give the nuts to a beer with only 5.2%. These guys have done an outstanding job making an approachable IPA. KUDOS

high_on_hops (552) - Burlingame, California, USA - NOV 14, 2011
On tap @ Mohawk Bend in LA. A nice gold color with a white head and some lacing. It smells like a fresh orange and has a nice hop and citrus flavor. The body is smooth and not very bitter. A very drinkable IPA.
