2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber with a small, creamy white head. Citrus hoppiness, caramel, and hay to the nose. Light carbonation and a thin mouthfeel. The flavor was refreshing but uninspired.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz. bottle. Mild aroma, fruity, citric, green and hoppy with very faint maltiness but with an unfortunate note of bathroom cleaner. Light-medium golden color, clear, with a lasting, fine head. Flavor is primarily hoppy, starting off with some very light, toasty malts, becoming progressively more bitter and leading to a dry, clean, grapefruit finish. Palate is moderately well carbonated and fairly thin with a light body. In fact, the overall effect is a bit like a club soda. Pretty refreshing, though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 12 oz. long neck twist cap brown bottle with a blurb about the pale ale on the neck wrapping and no freshness date. Made a decent appearance, poured a clear red hued golden with a small foamy white head that left a minimal amount of sticking. Had a faint piney/citric hop aroma and just traces of sweet maltiness. Medium carbonation and a slick, smooth light bodied mouth feel, above average drinkability. Had a big, but somewhat watery, piney/citric hop taste, a mild bitterness, a buried sweet pale maltiness and a dry, crisp citrus bitter finish.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
too much for me, the hop flavor was very strong, also the finish was quite bitter.

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.

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.
