COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blue Point Brewing's Pale Ale has a light golden color but explodes with a rich full-flavor. This refreshing ale is top fermentated and hopped at three different stages of the brewing process. English pale malt lends complexity to this brew. Small amounts of Wheat and Carapils round out the malt bill. Brewed to satisfy the hop lover, this pale ale has an immediate floral-citrus flavor that pervades the overall character of this hoppy, quenching microbrew.

Good overall. Taste of light hops. Not overwhelming buy would have been better a little dryer.

Growler pours golden with sticky frothy head. Aroma is flural and bright also some pine and citrus. Flavor is slightly bitter and crisp. Body is medium and finish is quick. Awesome session ale.

scarletfire65 (1515) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2011
Bomber at home. Big floral and citrus hop nose. Palate is medium to full bodied, buttery, slippery. Nice bitter hop profile over a rich and full malt base. Feels like more than 4.6%. Simple but nice APA.

Aurelius (5590) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2011
Big, sunny, lemony APA aroma. Clear, bright gold with an immense white egg creme head that collapses nicely. Over-brewed hops and diacetyl, medium heavy bittering. Medium heavy body. Long grapefruit and cabbage finish. ABC Liquors, Betton Hills.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2011
Appearance: clear gold with nectarine hues. Off-white head fades fast into a bubbly collar surrounding a thin film. Swirls thick but no lace.


Nose: orangey and clean though overall mild. Lemon ice, key lime, orange pith, marmalade, lemon pith, and dew-dropped green grass.


Palate: clean mouthfeel. Orangey sweet with marmalade toppings. Dryness of pith and dried grains in the back followed by more orange and lemon-lime. Medium weight. Quite sessionable. Wet green grass dropped with dew. Honey joins the marmalade.


Final Thoughts: overall not too shabby. Tasteful with a nice procession of flavors for a simple sessionable enjoyable American pale ale. On the flipside, it doesn’t really stand out from all that many other American pale ales I’ve enjoyed to date. If offered, I would drink.

jsmerig (1700) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Bomber from Abe’s in Bethlehem. Pours an orange gold hue. Aroma is very floral with malty notes. Taste is initially citrusy and floral with a nice malty middle and a bitter finish.

3.7
bhensonb (15856) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours hazy orange amber with a 4 finger foamy/creamy beige head. Aroma seems fruity/floral. But it’s thick head. Med body. Flavor is floral and slightly bitter fruit (probably citrus) over a detectable malt backdrop. This leans towards ESB given the nice hop choices. It’s lightly astringent and definitely bitter. At 4.6 this is definitely sessionable. Good pale ale.

3.5
DialSquare (5142) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Bomber from Liquor Loft. Clear orange-yellow pour with a bubbly light tan head and a fair bit of retention. Aroma is sweet honey, caramel malts and citrus. Tastes are biscuity, pine, soapy, and wet hops. Finishes astringent medium bitter celery. Not as bad as it sounds if in the mood for sharp even bitter. Wish the aftertaste wasn’t quite so acidic.

3.4
dredmond (179) - Long Island, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2011
drank from a 1 pint 6 fl. oz. glass bottle in Windham Mountain New York in front of a fire place. strong distinct flavor, feels active on the palette, hops explode the senses

3.3
smith4498 (3676) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Pours clear dark golden color with whitish head. Aromas of toasted malts, pine and grass. Biscuit malt flavor with some pine and grass with a little soapiness. Medium body with lively carbonation.
