Cask at the Get Real NY Cask Ale Event with Andrew, Streets, Brendan, and Linh. One of the best offerings of the day. Pours a light golden body with slight haze. Great notes of fresh pine hop. deyholla (11597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2011
On tap at Ginger Man Norwalk. Poured a near clear amber with a red hue and a white head that lasted throughout the beer and laced nicely. Aroma was a combination of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of a backing pine bite. Flavor started with grapefruit and mellowed into a bit of a sweeter citrus finish.

from Mondial de la Bière, Strasbourg - quite clear dark amber-orange colour with a solid bright creamy beige head left; nice lacework; the nose shows solid hoppy notes with quince and resins; piney and honey presence; slightly sticky and full-bodied, a solid bitterness and a pretty dry finish; creamy and bitter fruity and piney hoppy aftertaste - very drinkable and very good mackus2 (156) - Edison, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold with a big beige head. Piny and grassy hops are well balanced with thick sugary notes. A big, almost full body beer with a full taste that has sweet and overripe fruit characteristics, tart grapefruit, bananas and apples, with a nice bitter hop profile that finishes pretty clean. A big IPA for a small price. LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Growler from St. James Beverage. Pours a brown/amber with a gorgeous light tan head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, and sweet caramel malt. Flavor of sweet malt and citrusy, bitter hops in the finish. Definitely on the malty side. This is actually a pretty good IPA (or IIPA, who knows?), especially for Blue Point. Miles better than their standard IIPA.

Growler from St. James Bevie. Aroma of melon, pine, toffee. Flavor increases the melon notes, adding different sorts of melon and some other tropical notes with big, sweet malt and a very bitter finish. There are certainly too many residual sugars running around, as there are in any bigger beer this brewery produces, but it didn’t seem to bother me here. Pretty tasty. nimbleprop (8376) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2009
On tap at Blue Point. Transparent copper amber with a barely off white head that lasted and left some nice lacing. Well balanced aroma that’s both citrus fruits and pine but also caramel and cookie dough. Caramel sweetness is the first flavor, followed by plenty of bitter, citrus hops (grapefruit and lemons) with a dry, malty presence at the end that cuts the bitterness. Finish is dry with some lingering bitterness. Best item on tap. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Draft. Pours an amber body with a yellow off white head. Very hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, pine, sweet nectar and honey hints. Mostly a grapefruit pine y hop bomb, Nice. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2010
In short: A sharp, dry, toasted and grapefruity IPA. Very nice.bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 25, 2011
How: Tap at Prime 16, New Haven, CT.
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: Strong nose of grapefruity hops and some citrus fruits. Taste has a lot of toasted cereals but with a pleasantly low apparent sweetness level. Bitterness is assertive and sharp with bitter grapefruits, citrus fruits, and a bit of pine-tree. Finish is dry with an astringent and bitter grapefruits skin flavour. This is my type of IPA. Plus I liked that pub (Prime 16) where I had the beer located next to the prestigious Yale University. Kids, eat your school, stay in drugs, and don’t do vegetables. I’ve personally only succeeded with the middle one.
Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours hazy orange amber with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aroma of resin over light roast malt. Med body. Flavor is pretty piney, followed by a burst of sweet malt. It finishes on the resin bitter dry side. Very nicely done.
