Initial Point is a landmark in the great state of Idaho. Selected in 1867 by LaFayette Cartee, this site was used to survey all other cities and landmarks in the state. Slanted Rocks American style IPA is a medium intensity beer, golden in color with moderately-high bitterness. It is kettle and dry hopped with Cascade for its floral and citrus aroma characteristics. Columbus hops upfront provide high bittering and Crystal malts add a caramelize sweetness to the crisp finish.

Way too malt-forward for my liking. Heavy-handed amounts of crystal malts result in loads of caramel, dough, and bread notes. Texture is too thick and chalky. Appearance is hazy and rusty orange. Green hop flavors and aromas are nice, with bold notes of grass and citrus, but theyre quickly snuffed out by malt. This is a like a dessert IPA.

Can picked up at the 16th St Albertsons... Pours a slightly hazy light orange with a short-lived white head but still leaves nice lacing... Sweetish sorta tangerine like hoppiness... that is accentuated by a too heavy (for my palate) residual maltiness... good bitterness... Nice enough IPA... No flaws, I just like mine without so much malt balance.

Meh. Definitely seems to be an entry level IPA. Kinda hoppy...nothing offensive but nothing that stands out. Citrus and pine and bitterness in low levels. Maybe as an introduction to the style.

This is a delicious, well-balanced IPA. It is golden in color, with high bitterness, and a citrusy nose.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Aroma: Sweet, herbal, tangerine-like fruity hops.
Flavor: Tangerine citrus hops; herbal, resinous. Malt sweetness, giving it kind of a fruity candy flavor. Substantial bitterness; a little harsh in the aftertaste.
Thanks for the beer, Dallas

Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 30, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce can. The hop aroma is herbal, candied, low citrusy fruits. The flavor is more of the herbal and candied hops character, some lemony notes, bready malts. A firm, slightly harsh resinous bitterness in the finish. This may be an oxidized example. Would try again.
