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.

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.

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.

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.

3.66/5  rDev -6.2%

Date: 3/30/14
Location: City Swiggers
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Pours gold to orange with a slightly larger then thumb size pour. It's slightly hazy but almost possible to see through. There is a load of carbonation running up to the head.
Aromatics: There is a lot of fruit in there- grapefruit, melon. I'm hit by a lot of honey as well. It moves into the bitterness of hops.
Flavor: The first thing that strikes me about her beer is the creaminess that brings about the hoppiness of the beer. On the back of my tongue I get the fruits. The honey is throughout.
Finish: The finish is carried by the creaminess and bitterness of the mosaic hops. There are hints of resin and a touch of the honey.
