Sampled from a 12oz bottle with a Purchase by date of Jul 03. Tasted and rated on July 22nd, 03.

Poured a golden honey color with an inch thick white head. The head left spots and short ranges of lacing on the glass. There is also very visible carbonation, more than usual for a Pale Ale.

Aromas of fresh, green hops with a malt background. Mostly fresh, floral hops. Very floral and powerful aromas. Smells like fresh picked hops.

The taste started with slightly sweet malt, but is quickly covered by fresh hop bite. The transition is very smooth, but too much for a non-hophead. While I can truly appreciate the elevated level and how smoothly the taste does transition from the slightly sweet malt to the completely bitter hops, this is a little more hop than I am currently ready for.

The carbonation is very high for a Pale Ale and bubbles dancing and pop in your tongue and across the mouth. It goes down very easy and is very drinkable, but again a little more bitter than I currently regularly enjoy. Very nice change from my usual. Thanks for the sample, you know who you are.

Mmmm, fresh hops! (It says so on the label.) Light golden orange with small but solid head, lace down the glass. Minimal aroma with hops and a pleasant salty beach sensation. A tart beer, light on the malts with tangy hops taking over but letting up at the last minute for a not-too-dry finish. It is nice to discover a beer that is solid and flavorful but not too heavy. This is even a fraction lighter than Sierra Nevada's pale ale. Good in every sense; makes me want to move to Patchogue and make the Blue Point tasting room my local. This beer really shines with food, a simple roasted chicken is ideal.

This was my first from this brewery and will surely lead me to try some more of their brews. It is a good golden color with a nice creamy head. The smell is of hops with some hints of fruitiness. This is one of the better Pale Ales I have tried recently. The taste was hoppy but had a sweet fruitiness as well. This is a real good and drinkable brew.

Pale gold color, highly carbonated, nice pocked white head.
Inviting citrusy hop aroma, slightly astringent, metalic phenol notes, more tinniness in the flavor, light sugary flavor and thin body, I didnt enjoy the hop flavor/ combination that had a thin, biscuity malt base backing it up. The finish was clean and nicely hoppy. The freshness date is 4/03 so it was a fresh bottle, but its filtered, ie:no yeast trub traces were in the bottle so Im not sure how much ageing would mellow it. A decent, interestingly hopped little pale ale.

A wonderful drinking brew. Nice rocky head that stick to the glass. Smooth, but with a ton of hops that almost makes this an IPA, but not. Great with all kinds of food
