COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It just wasn’t enough to use a blend of 5 varieties of hops in our India Pale Ale. We needed more. We needed to go wholehog! So, we added a sixth hop and created a more pronounced hop nose and a massive hop flavor for our American twist to this legendary style.

Ahh... well, the ABV hints that this is a DIPA, but there is nothing else in here that suggests that it is. Lightly hopped, not a very big malt backbone. To me, this would be a decent session beer if the ABV wasn’t so high. Sort of like a higher octane Newcastle Brown Ale, with a little addition of hops. Average. Paid $7.99/4 pack.

Pretty orange cloudy pour from bottle thanks to boozedude. Ripe grapefruit bitter smell. Taste is fruity and hoppy but a little stale.

It’s OK. Got some pine and hay hop flavor. Lots of malt. Kind of muddy and little unbalanced. Boozy finish.

Bif (1299) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a dark copper color with a smallish head and bits of lacing. Aroma of Grapefruit, bit of pine with some malt sweetness and grain.Taste of grapefruit, malt, mild caramel sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, crisp and clean. Nicely balanced as the 8.5% ABV is well hidden. Has a bit of character.Enjoyable beer, much better than I expected.

(bottle) My first taste from this brewery and a nice surprise. Well balanced hop flavors without going too far. Elevated alcohol very well hidden. The chosen beer to for an unplanned Reilly’s session. Looking forward to more from Stevens Point.

Nice grapefruit flavor. Interesting but delightful smell. Point did a nice job on this one. I recommend this one to anyone who wants to try an IPA that differs from the others.

Well the aroma let’s on a lot more than the flavor. It is not bad, wonder who owns it as it seems to be a macro in disguise.
