3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
FROM NOTES: November 22, ’13.
A: Strong aromas of citrus, sweet herb and caramel. A signature American IPA aroma with a strong hop scent and the caramel malt.
A: Pours a golden straw-yellow with a thin foamy head and some nice lacing.
T: Follows the nose with a heavy malt base (biscuit, dough, caramel, and lightly toasted malts notes). The hops are understated with equal parts piney, citrusy, and earthy hop flavors.
P: A refreshing, light body, medium carbonation mouth-feel.
O: Nothing earth shattering, but solid all the way around.
Bottle from Saveur bière.com Pleasant beer, not my favourite kind of IPA, something whit the hops... tommann (3751) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2017

On tap while in Orlando
Pours a clear copper
Smoky finish - nice, but nothing wow about it thegreenrooster (4402) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 31, 2017
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 (2345) - 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 (495) - 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. The_Osprey (7985) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
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 (116) - 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.
