I was standing in the Blue Point Brewery this afternoon, during the Real Ale Festival, admiring their huge vats, the old mash tun, and the black kegs when I noticed the employees were pouring from what was billed as the "Largest Cask". As I made my way to the bar, my friend asked one of the workers about the ale's brewing and I partially heard the response about the use of 4 kinds of hops in the process.
The light orange/brown/tan ale looked interesting in my glass and the first taste had no shortage of hops taste. It was much stronger than the Hoptical Illusion I had tasted earlier and the robust energy was colored by apricots, grapefruit, and light caramel malts.
This was a good match for the Famous Dave's BBQ that was being served on the other side of the event.
As for the brewing availability, I thought the workers said it was limited in its run, but I could be mistaken.

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.
