COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop-Forward India Pale Ale
5 Points is the original name of the intersection in front of Cask & Larder. The beer is an American IPA brewed with a Southern California water profile. Maris Otter base malt with Belgian Cara malts are used for slight sweetness and color. A variety of West Coast hops are also used throughout the brewing process to give a well-rounded hop profile without being overly bitter.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Growler thanks to hopscotch at RBWG Grand Tasting. Clear, amber to red pour. Spotty lacing. Nose is mildly vegetal, moving to caramel. Quite nutty. Taste is nutty, orange peel, spices, mild butterscotch. Oily, mild maple syrup palate. Good overall. 2/28/2013 6/4/7/4/13=3.4

Tap at Cask & Larder. The most successful beer on tap by far today. Really floral, juicy, quite interesting with mega perfume and grapefruit juice. Intense, juicy, great mouthfeel. Fresh citrus peel nose. Sharp and fresh ruby red grapefruit juice.

Growler... Clear amber w/ small, creamy, white. Fruity, funky hops & medium-roast malt. Full-bodied & lightly creamy w/ modest carb. Nicely bittered flavor. Tasty, juicy, bitter hops. Lengthy bitter finish.

Nice one. Draft at C&L. Fairly complex hop nose, pine resin, tropical fruit (a funky pineapple maybe?), sweat sock, maybe some citrus but less of that. Flavor more resiny, solid malt backbone but it doesn’t get in the way, you’re still mostly thinking about the hops. Balanced finish. Deep amber color.

In tap at Cask & Larder in Winter Park. Pours a clear orange with a white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is bitter sweet, lots of citrus and grapefruit bursts with hops and a smooth, dry, long bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA

On tap at the brewpub. Clear amber pour with a white head. Pleasant grapefruit/pine bouquet. Grapefruit hop notes dominate with undercurrent of pine and citrus. Good balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel. A solid IPA.
