3.05/5  rDev -20.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a sticky, hazy orange color with a finger of resinous foam. Aroma is full of crystal malt sweetness, toffee, caramel. Smells like a barleywine!

First sip is extremely sweet, cloying, with a moderately bitter finish. I pick up tropical fruit sweetness, pineapple, mango flavors as well. While I don't disagree with the 93 IBUs listed on the label, this beer is just far too sweet to be considered a good DIPA. I don't see a freshness date on the bottle, but it does say copyright 2012, so it can't be THAT old... It is stamped with a permanent graphic that says "Extremely Fresh".

I just can't tell if this beer is supposed to be like this, or if all the hop aroma and flavor has disappeared to age. It would score much higher from me if it was listed as a barleywine, because this is not the hop bomb I was craving when I popped the top.

I know this is called No Apologies, but Bluepoint should apologize for this under attenuated mess.

3.79/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a hazy deep orange with a one-finger foamy white head. Heavy lacing.

S - Mix of malts, grassy hops, and a touch alcohol.

T - Sweet malts are right upfront with floral hops finish out the flavors. Finish has a slight hop bitterness. Light alcohol presence in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.

O - This is a decent malt forward DIPA. Definetly drinkable.
