2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - nice, unmistakeable Cascade hop nose. Cloudy medium gold body with a head of largish white bubbles. Decent Cascade flavor with a supporting malt background. Kind of thin. Okay - not great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours crystal clear amber with a small head that leaves a tiny bit of lacing. Aroma is very light. Flavor has hints of spice and some kind of citrus. Maybe orange. Very slight. Seems like this would be a fine beer after cutting the grass on a hot summer day.

from the bottle. poured a nice amber with a white head head that left a small amount of lacing. aroma the yeast and hops took the front seat on this one than the malts came in followed by a mild spiceyness. flavor caramel and hops, pine citrus, malts with a slight bitterness to it. a very refreshing and easy to drink beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a still, transparent copper amber with a thin-lacing white head. Aroma of nice fresh, piney cascade hops and some mild crystal malt. Body starts with a light caramel sweetness, some nicely balancing fresh piney hops and a hint of citrus. A decent APA but could use some more malt and hops. I’m glad to see Point trying some new styles.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear dark amber with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly. Good hoopy pine aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Well balanced hoppy flavor with a moderate bitter finish. Above average brew.

Not much here--kinda hoppy, kinda caramelly, sorta flat, sorta boring. Drinkable.

I’m not a Point Cascade hater, I just think the "kiss of [cascade] hops" gives this APA a generic macro flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright, caramel/amber with a yellow-tinged head that holds and laces. Big hopcit aroma makes my mouth water. Orange peel, lemon, some roasted malt, hint of pine. Flavorful hop bitterness with a slightly burnt ending. Pretty darn good, albeit a little thin. Surprising.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold in color with a foamy, bubble-placated head. Aroma leads in with fresh honey hops, ginger and a gathering of sugary, tropical Starburst assortments. Flavor has a bit of lemon cleanser and an inappropriate yeast strain. Otherwise, we’ve got some grassy characteristics and, you guessed it, cascade hops. Waxy yet dry palate feel. All said and done, it comes off as more of a hoppy Bohemian pilsner, but for the price, it’s decent.
