On tap at the Mellow in Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint glass a peach-like color with a 1/2 finger white head atop.Fresh floral hop aromas with some citric edge as well,mild spice wich was more pronounced on the palate.Spiced notes along with citric hop flavors,the spice might be a bit much but it's still got a good hop profile.I really like the aromas of this beer and the big use of American hops,maybe just tone down the yeasty/spiced notes a tad.

Growler filled at Yorktown Beverage, Yorktown, NY

Pour is clouded medium honey/yellowed amber, lifts a rather huge and active off white head. Head stays and stays, leaves plenty of residual froth, and more then ample irregular bands of lace.

Fresh smelling and pungent nose of flowery goodness, infused with some spicy hop notes.

Flavorful , complex and tasty brew. The "Belgian" character/influence here comes in the form of the wit/white beer style. Some slight bubblegum picked up as well as the wit influenced creamsicle character. Hops are evident, but only moderatly biting. More for balance rather then assault. Nicely done, sort of a wit on hop steroids.

Sure this one would be great with some peppery salads, mussels, and all manner of quality cheeses.

Nice new brew from Blue Point, I hope this one is widely available come summer time

Hazy golden hued with almost an orange like tint. Brussels lacing. A thin layer of white foam mostly covers the top of the beer. Hints of coriander and a stronger smell of citrus hops is what I get out of the aroma. The body is light,fairly crisp and refreshing. The flavor is a nice balance of citrus hops and some gently added coriander. This is pretty well balanced and refreshing.

On tap at Sawmill Tap Room on 8/31/12.

A - orangish gold with no head when it arrived

S - huge herbal and spicy hop notes, a bit floral, peppery

T - floral, big herbal hops again, pepper, rye maybe, faint citrus, bitter finish; this is all hops, they're bold and intense.

M - medium bodied, crisp, smooth, well carbonated

What a hop bomb! The hops were exploding everywhere! I thought the choice of herbal, spicy hops complimented the peppery yeast notes. The only real downside to this beer is palate fatigue. The hops are intense, and they will quickly mess with your taste buds. Even so, this beer is definitely worth a try!

Picked up a 6-pack at EuroMarket, the cans were stamped July, but the beer tastes plenty fresh. This is a lighter-bodied IPA with a lot of the same earthy spice you're used to in other Belgian IPAs. The hops bring a juicy mix of apricot, tangerine, and mild pine. Mmmm. A mighty fine pale ale here—drinkable and satisfying.

Nice color and head. Aroma is very nice and refreshing with hints of citrus and a little spice. Flavor is the same with an ever so slight orange bitterness and a little spice and hop flavor. Blends nicely together. Good carbonation, clean, very very light finish. Refreshing

Nice hazy gold with a nice head and good retention. Some lace on the sides and some light carbonation to go with a thin covering. Smell is is quite full of pine and a Belgian yeast doughiness with some big sweet dinner rolls. A touch of pepper and citrus. Taste has a malt body that is reminiscent of a tripel with a nice pine hoppiness on top. Sweet pearl and crystal malt with a healthy wheat component makes this super easy on the tongue. Nice compliment of Belgian spice in the mix. Clean, dry, hoppy finish with a touch of hop oil lingering. Feel is crisp and dry with a lovely quenching character. Carbonation is spot on and weight is on the lighter side of medium giving this brew high sessionability. An artful interpretation of the style and I will be looking for this one near me. Great brew to have around the house. Much love to my good friend Harry Smith for bringing me a few cans of this good stuff.
