This brew was very weak in the aroma department as far as a citrus smell goes. The taste did not have the usual IPA flavor that other brews have. Overall this was a disappointing choice.

Patrickctenchi (6517) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle: 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.

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.

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. Its a light, thin beer with a some what tart finish.

The_Osprey (7825) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
January 2017 - Bottle share at Leightons. 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)

From a mystery beer hawk case. Hoppy and bitter IPA. This 330 ml bottle was actually 7% alcohol not 6.8%. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sawbuck (721) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2017
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 (1596) - 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 (4330) - 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.

FinnIckler (392) - GERMANY - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Bottled September 2016. Nose is berries, citrus, grass, pine. Palate is a nice mix of bitter hoppyness and some fruity and even a faint sour notes. Good.
