Pours a slightly hazy, light yellowish color, with a modest, bubbly head. Has a wonderful, unique aroma of hops, citrus, fruit, not really skunky at all. Great smelling beer, but not at DIPA levels. The taste follows suit. It's light, crisp and with a solid chunk of hops in every sip (not literally). Mouthfeel is good. It's light and a little watery if you're used to higher abv beers, but that's to be expected. Overall, one of the better hopped up session ales I've had. Fantastic beer for summer and as I expected, it's getting little love on here, not because it isn't really good, but because it's a lighter, more subtle beer; the kiss of death for BA ratings. Nice job Blue Point!

A = Light golden amber, similar to a heavy lager. Frothy head with very little lacing.

S = Fresh, Hoppy, Light Flowers.

T = Lovely hoppiness, lightly malted. Very crisp and finishes dry on the palate.

M = Fresh, light-medium bodied. Just enough carbonation.

O = Mine was bottle on 6/4/14 and tasted on 8/3/14. Delicious and fresh and extremely "session worthy."" A great summer IPA. Lucky YOU, who live on Long Island! Cheers!

12 oz bottle.
Pale amber color with a very durable off-white head.

Mildly pungent aroma of Mosaic hops with a hint of honey.
These also dominate the flavor. {Note that Mosaic is not among my favorite hop varieties}

Feel: near medium body and medium carbonation.

O: a very flavorful version of a low ABV IPA. A winner if you want a session IPA built on Mosaic hops.

Aroma is clean grainy pale malt with mosaic scents of candy fruit, indeterminate berries, melon, peach, earthy mixed with tropical. Some piney citrus as well. Taste is similar. All around this is soft in intensity, as is appropriate with a session beer I suppose. Bitterness is easy throughout, then perky through the finish. Flavors include pine, melon gone tropical, floral, some spice and citrus. Not bad. Mouthfeel is clean and liquidy, with a touch of swirly creaminess.... Medium-light in body and certainly easy to consume. This beer is pleasant with an interesting hop profile.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 9, 2014.

It pours a fairly typical looking pale yellow to light amber with a cloudy hop haze and a tremendous soft white head.

The aroma is in your face with those mosaic floral and citrus hop sensations intermixing beautifully with the roasted breaded malts.

The body is well above medium and more on the heavy, smooth side.

The floral hop bitterness does not back down in the flavor in the least and it mingles with the roasted malt adding its touch of character to the mix. Lingering finish.

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a golden orange amber color. 2 inches of head, good lacing down the glass.

Smells like oranges, apricotes, pineapples, and pine.

Similar taste. Remarkably clean and dry taste to this session IPA- lots of flavor packed into small ABV. The Mosaic hops shine- fruity, juicy, and succulent hop flavor, backed up by significant pleasant bitterness. Probably the best session IPA I've ever had.

Light bodied, as I would have guessed. Good carbonation, dry and crisp mouthfeel.

The best I've had from Blue Point, for sure.

Counter-pressure fill from Tasty Beverage

Clear gold color with a tall pure-white head that extends over the rim of the glass. Aromas of oily hops, herbs, blueberry, earth, floral notes, and some dank pine. Light, resinous hop flavor...green and clean, bitter lemon, pine, and some cereal malt. A sort of mango and berry-like quality too. Light and a little creamy. Refreshing and pretty tasty overall.
