3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour with a 1 finger creamy tan head. Aroma is full of fruity, pine, and tea like herbal hops, a decent amount of caramel, toast and a little toffee. Flavor is caramel and toast up front, some husky grain, mineral notes and a light, planty woodiness, thistle-like floral hops, tea like herbal hops, pine, old dry citrus and a little cat box hoppiness. Medium body with a medium sharp and blanketing carbonation and a dry, mineral water feel after an initially somewhat syrupy entry. Not bad overall, the hop blend is different, but I like it.

This IPA hit all the right notes with me. The piney aroma greets the nose with an inviting greeting. Obviously, the dominant flavors are what you would expect from an IPA: citrus and pine on the hops side but toasty, nutty and bready on the malt side. This is just a delicious, flavorful IPA that I keep going back to. I love seeing an old guard brewery like Point hit one out of the park in the craft brewing realm.

Clear pale amber. Lasting, sticky off white head. Hop forward. High bitterness but it fades. Pungent overripe Citrus. Pine. Caramel.

Color is burnt orange with no head. Citrus aroma with hints of nutty and earthy scents. Heavier body than I expected and more malt flavors than hop flavors. Slight citrus and pineapple taste. Clean finish, decent IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours with a hazy deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a near white head of foam. The aroma initially comes across as tired and old and kind of dusty. As it warms a bit I start to get malty spicy hops, floral hops, a dash of soapiness and then an all too faint earthy tea note at the end of the draw. The taste starts right off with malts and resiny hop bitterness that quickly gets into a firm pine note as well as some bitter floral hops. The malts stay right there and bring up a bit of a biscuit quality midway where an off putting light soapiness is noticed as well. Hmm. This is resiny but lacks some of the body and flavor to give it a bit of balance.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
speckles suspended in a golden brew. Smells of floral to citrus with a bit of muskiness and the flavor follows this. Very dry aftertaste that just leaves me looking for something to drink. Thinking this is the first time I have tried a brew using Galaxy hops but not completely sure of that, but finding that I am not a huge fan of them if this is the result. Drinkable but not something I am going to purchase again.

Excellent cheap beer. I’ve bought this a few times now because of the price and quality. Not the best IPA, but very solid. Good amount of malt character followed by a nice resin bitterness and tons of fruity floweryness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is a decent hop with plenty of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is more of the sweet malt, the hops kinda disappear. Finish is a nice malt but again I would have like more of the hops to make an appearance. Strictly average and that pretty much sums up this brewer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Copper with no head. Aroma of lemon pledge and grapefruit. Medium body, harsh grapefruit hop bitterness, soapy notes, pepper, light malt, and a dry finish. Really unbalanced.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance is ok with a thick, cream-colored, soon to settle head, no lace, and a slightly hazy dark amber color. Aroma is the best part being mostly resin but also some citrus hop and caramel malt.. Most of that is gone in the flavor though - lots of hop bitter, a little malt sweet, some medicinal and is just so-so. Body is sort of soft, but the high bitterness clashes.

12oz bottle pours hazy orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of mild citrus orange and caramel malt. Taste of caramel and toffee, fruity orange, and hop spice.
