BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Blue Dot pours out of the bottle a dense, murky off pale which looks quite disgusting. Aroma and taste are very vibrant and fresh while the medium bodied mouthfeel is a bit milky, really interesting. Sweet pilsner malts shine through beautifully showcasing sweet honey and fresh white bread. Citrus hops galore and a little piney bitter finish with a hint of that rye. This is sure one unfiltered, unrefined IPA but a good one at that setting it self apart in an IPA flooded market.

Bomber, thanks Craig! Juicy pineapple aroma with lemon and grapefruit citrus hop notes as well as a little bit of earthy rye. Pours cloudy golden colored with a large, soapy white head with excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with nice pineapple hop flavors as well as lemon and grapefruit citrus hops as well. Finishes dry with a little bit of earthy rye and a bit of floral hop bitterness. Very nice!

not mind-blowing, but a nice soft aroma and flavor of fairly juicy floral and citrus-forward American hops.
