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.

A great session IPA. Appearance was light yellow with a fizzy head. The smell was full of grapefruit and a little bit of orange. The taste was all the grapefruit flavor from the hops was fully forward on the taste. The bitterness was very refreshing and I found it quite nice with a crisp and decently clean finish. Overall I liked it a lot.

I purchased this bottle as both an homage to my friend, @Scoats, a great publican, excellent host and masterful creator of mosaics as well as the J. P. McCaskey High School Art Department, who has adopted an ongoing mosaic project as a massive student undertaking.

From the bottle: "Craft Brewed [-] Extremely Fresh"; "Inspired by the original Blue Point Brewery bar top created in 1997."; "Sidle up to a piece of Long Island history in the tasting room in Patchogue, NY or visit us at ... Cheers! [undersigned] Mark & Peter".

I just love watching beer pour into my glass! It is not just the pseudo-cascade, but the slow creation of head and its eventual (literal) downfall. In this instance, I had two fingers of rocky, bone-white head with excellent retention. Color was a bright sunshine-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). This sort of thing always makes me smile, and especially on a dreary Winter's day here in PA, but tonight, it was a hot, humid Summer evening, but I was still smiling. Nose had a wildly mosaic-like scent, combining pine, grapefruit and mango. Yum! Mouthfeel was kind of thin and the taste, while fruity, seemed like someone had dialed down the volume on it. That is my great fear with these so-called "session beers" - we are sacrificing taste in favor of lower alcohol. Finish was semi-dry and while hoppy, I just felt like it was not living up to its potential. Aroma vs. Bittering? In this case, Aroma won, but it was a Pyrrhic victory.
