Pours a lightish copper with a 2 finger, fluffy off white head. Aroma is biscuit, pine, light citrus and floral hops, caramel and a little toffee. Flavor is mroe biscuit, caramel, piney and planty hops are most prevailant, but some citrus as well, a slightly Englishy yeast profile, toast and some bitter pine and light grassiness to the finish. Palate is light to medium bodied, with a creamy to slick feel, mild carbonation and off dry finsh with a lingering bitterness clinging to the palate. O.K. overall. No major flaws, but nothing all that impressive.

Clear, amber-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is a little earthy with herbal and light pine notes. It has a light, watery texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet and easy drinking with smooth, quick finish. Not bad, but not exciting either. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2014
12oz bottle brought back from the midwest. Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head. Aroma was heavy hop notes - earthy character, some light pine. Flavor was earthy hops, huge malt notes, caramel. A touch more malty than I’d have liked, but it was pretty clean and easy to drink in the end.

12 ounce bottle, $2 single at HyVee, Ankeny, IA. Picked up as part of my scramble to not let November be my month with the fewest ratings ever. Screw-top crown, followed by my sin of pouring into a plain old shaker glass. Appearance is a bright amber, with plenty of thick, orange-y foam. Smell has some light citrus and grassy hop overtones. A fake store brand beer this may be, but at least they are up front about their hop bill. Taste brings up some earthy hop notes suited to an English IPA. This is more hop-forward than their web page suggests. Has a bit of a curdled aftertaste, but that may be my cold speaking. I see that I can trust the Point guys for a solid brew even when contracted. Iphonephan (7482) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2015
From a bottle at the RB DC tasting September 6. Pours a hazy copper with an ecru. Woody nose. Flavors of prairie grass. Bitter finish.
