I had this beer on tap at David Burke Prime Steakhouse in Foxwoods Casino. I found it drinkable and the quality was fine but nowhere near my favorite IPA.

This ale came light gold in color with a thin white head. The smell and flavor go hand-in-hand. There’s a large amount herbal and pine with no great bitterness at all. There’s a big lack of malt which makes the mouth feel a bit watery.

Nothing turns me off more than a watery mouth feel, hence my score. It's the reason I drink craft beer in the first place. Others may like this version of IPA but its not for me.

Growler filled at Yorktown Beer and soda in Yorktown, NY

Pours near clear lighter amber, with a medium honey hue. Nice and tiny eggshell bubbles make up the moderate head. Leaves quality looking fine fields of sheeting.

Grapefruit and apricots on the nose.

Quite enjoyable AIPA, wth grainy hops, grapefruit and pinapple fruity notes balancing out the honey malts. Delicious creation from Blue Point, well done. Glad to get to try a fresh and tasty growler of this one.

Pours a golden straw color with a short dense pure white head. Not much lacing settles into a light cap.

The aroma is of musty hops with an apricot note. Meh.

The taste is light. Light malt not much there which is ok for a session IPA. The hops are weak. A bit grassy and leafy with hints of apricot. Tastes like English hops.

Moderate feel with prickly carbonation. Lightly sweet on the palate with a hoppy bitter offset. Drinks easy.

A rather boring session IPA. Not a big fan of the hop profile but it does drink quite well.

i haven't been this blown away by a beer in years.

The beer was on cask and had just came in so it was as fresh as could be.

The first thing was it looked awesome with a big pillowy white head.

Then the nose. This is where this beer made me say holy *#%$. I stopped and smelled for 2 minutes before i even sipped. It was floral and red grapefruit and tropical fruits. just so complex and amazing.

The taste didn't disappoint and followed suit. with passion fruit. sweet grapefruit citrus. there was really no discernible hop bitterness. just oily and floral. maybe the cask subdued the bitterness but this is why it was really unique and great

mouthfeel was excellent and the cask may have had something to do with the experience. it was perfect just barely cool temp so it really opened up all the flavors and mouth feel.

this is an outstanding beer super fresh on cask and I cant wait to try it on standard tap. Cask will be hard to beat though.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of dominated by citrus. Taste is grapefruit, mild bitterness, mild and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a pretty good beer, a little more tart and less hop forward than I am used to in an IPA.
