Had to pick this baby up, being a homebrewer not having the chance to use wet hops, yet, I wanted to give it a try.
Pours a clear, pale yellow with rocky white head and lasting lacing.
Smell of light grains and not the normal hop aroma you'd expect from a Pale. Much more 'green' and floral on the nose, I'm not familiar with Crystal, but the Centennial and Cascade are pretty easily discernible. Slightly sweet smelling. Citrus, almost clementine-y, and fresh peach. Some vegetal, celery like aromas come through.
Yellow summer beer. Typical light pale you'd expect this time of year, with some big Cascade flavors. Some malt sweetness, pleasant bitterness, and a fresher hop flavor than is typical from dried hops. Slightly spicy, a little citrus, mostly green and floral.
Coats the mouth well, residual sweetness but surprisingly dry. Well carb'd, if slightly under.
I don't know that I'd buy this again, but it's a must try if you've never experienced wet hops. Good-Great show, overall.

Appearance: pours a yellowish orange color with a big 2" head that lasts a long time. Nce lace paints the glass.
Smell: wonderful hop aroma with a bunch of citrus tones.
Taste: caramel, orange, lemon zest, a bit of mango, and a hearty earthy and citrus bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp from start to finish with some dryness late. Long lasting aftertaste as the flavors linger in the mouth a while.
Overall: a very enjoyable and easy to drink beer. Very hop-centric but very well balanced. Worthy of a try.

Served on-tap a orange-gold with two fingers of thick white head. Nice amount of sticky lacing left behind.
Aroma of fresh grass, citrus and onion.
Tasted of fresh grass, onion and floral hops with a light malty note.
Medium bodied and a bit sticky with a moderate carbonation.
Overall, a pretty enjoyable beer from Blue Point.
