Bright golden brew with a very hoppy nose. Big fruity flavors, peach and tropical mostly. Very nice brew!
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with some leafy green tea. Flavor is more malty than hoppy. Actually I hardly get any hops in this beer. It pretty much all sweet caramel malt with more of a dry bitter aftertaste. Where are the hops? This was bottled on April 10th so it is not very old. This was a beer that was probably a whole lot better before being bought out. This has macro brewed IPA all over it. DrNosha (2287) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017

Clear amber with a thick beige head.
Sweet, tropical fruit, floral scent.
Taste is mango, pineapple, orange....caramel malt......a touch of spiciness.
On the sweet side, only a just a bit of peel bittering.
Simple, but tasty. shawnmurphy (330) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours slightly hazy golden color with thin off-white head. As I sip, lacing clings to side of glass. Aroma: mango, pineapple, sweet bread, pine. Flavor: blood orange, pine needles, malt. Prickly on tongue from carbonation and hops. Medium bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Nicely balanced sweetness and bitterness -- although for me, a bit too sweet for what I consider to be a really good IPA. steelhead3686 (270) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Pours clear copper with a thin white head from the bottle. Slight hoppy and medium malt aroma and this hold true for the taste as well, maybe heavy on the sweetness. It’s a light, thin beer with a some what tart finish.

January 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks Leighton! As ’
Blue Point Hoptical Illusion’, 7%. Translucent orange, still with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is light honey, pastries, dusty. Body is light, frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is sugary, toffee, honey, touch resinous but bitterness is swamped by the sugars. Very sweet. Not my thing. (2.8) jrh2254 (108) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
From a mystery beer hawk case. Hoppy and bitter IPA. This 330 ml bottle was actually 7% alcohol not 6.8%. Nice beer.

Faint aroma of caramel malt... no hoppy aromas? Nice golden color with a thick off white head. Sweet malt up front. Lots of caramel and bread. Bitterness coats nicely, one dimensional and dry. Slightly watery mouth feel with a somewhat balanced finish. Soapy aftertaste however. Disappointing. jmohno (1612) - Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Pours a peachy gold, clear. Harsh aroma, not sure almost smells bitter. Planty minty pine. Malts, plastic. Perfume/alcohol. bit of fruit. Taste is some hops but hot, some malt and harshness. Tastes amature like Coors would do this as craft beer or something. Labeling looked cheap or like Miller that would make a craft version would be. Finishes harsh with perfumey and alcholol. Bad aftertaste. Seems like sellout BMC wannabe craft beer.Maybe there is some cheap gmo ingredients in this like BMC. tricksta_p (4538) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is soft fruity hops, some tropical and peachy notes, bready and biscuity malt, mild floral/herbal, touch of pine resin and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Malty IPA, bit restrained, but very pleasant.
