A-Pours a clear, orange color. Head is pretty minimal. It's a small slice of white bubbles. It doesn't leave much lacing.

S-Aroma is great. It's just a blast of Mosaic hops. The hops are decently intense here. The mosaic hops impart aromas of many different tropical fruits and some pine. The medley of delectable fruits are complemented by some crisp grain and a softer Brady malt.

T-Flavor is also very nice but I did enjoy the nose a bit more. The mosaic hops are a bit less intense here. Citrus and mango hops that turn piney. A noticeably cereal/grainy note and some mild caramel and bread crust malt.

M-Moderate bitterness. Medium bodied, too. Almost no alcohol. Quite easy to put down.

O/D-One of Blue Point's better beers in my opinion. Mosaic hops are really a great new breed that have the ability to floor you with excellent flavors and aromas. This beer is a great display piece for these hops.

A - Clear yellow gold with 1.5 fingers of white foamy head light on lacing

O - Excellent IPA, best use of mosaic I've had so far.

On tap into a pint glass

This is a very light amber color with a tiny head and small carbonation showing

The smell is tropical fruit and very sweet as it warms up

Grapefruit and mangoes and is not too bitter at all, very easy to drink a few of these

Light body on it with medium carbonation

This is probably one of the better beers ive had by them. nice and easy drinking for an IPA

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.

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.

4.06/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is crystal clear yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of tropical fruit are present in the nose along with some notes of citrus. Hints of pine also become perceptible as the beer warms up.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of fresh hop flavors such as grapefruit, gooseberries, oranges and mangoes with bits of pine towards the finish. The hops also contribute a moderate amount of bitterness, which is most noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: For a single hop IPA, this beer offers a lot of complexities in the smell and taste. It's quite drinkable because it's not too bitter.

Serving type: growler
