12 oz twist-off bottle poured into an imperial pint.
6% ABV, 40 IBUs

A - Perfectly clear and perfectly golden, this IPA is vibrant and pours with a sturdy stark white head that reduces to a creamy layer of foam beneath dollops of lacing.

S - Hoppy but not bursting, One Shot has a subdued aroma of lively citrus; grapefruit being the most dominant, backed by notes of toasted white bread.

T - General tropical fruitiness blends together like a smoothie but grapefruit remains at the tip of the tongue, even through the encore of soft wheat and light maltiness.

M - Light bodied with bright carbonation, One Shot has a smooth finish that's punctuated by grapefruit-like hop bitterness and gently lingering fruity nuances.

O - Despite what seems like a nose that's devoid of any dry-hopping, One Shot is a really nice, drinkable single hop IPA. The Calypso hops make for a citrusy, fruity combination that, in collaboration with the light body, is very lively and refreshing with a mildly bitter finish. (1,006 characters)

Poured 12oz bottle into pint glass

A - Pours clear and golden with a finger's width of nice dense head that mostly dissipates after about a minute and leaves thin lacing. A subtle motion of bubbles moving to the top in small numbers.

S - Slightly weak, but still a pleasant, rather even blend of bread and malt, citrus and grapefruit

T - Mild citrus up front with a bitterness that fades to a fresh loaf of wheat bread with a hint of honey.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish, but not unexpected.

O - Drinkable and refreshing beer that is par for the course and may miss the mark for big hops fans. (630 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. 0794 indicates this was bottled on March 20.

A - Clear and golden with a soft 1.5 finger white head. Nice retention that falls into a collar and leaves spotty lacing. Bubbles stream upward the entire session.

S - Aromas of light sweet Vienna malt yield to floral, fruit and citrus notes. Passion fruit, apple, and pear with hints of orange.

T - The tastes is very nice with a light malt sweetness from the Vienna malt. There is a floral and bitter hop component with notes of Passion fruit, orange, pear and apple.

M - Light and well carbonated with a slick feel.

O - This is a Point beer? What a transformation they are going through...I can't wait to open the other IPAs. (714 characters)

Pours golden with a fluffy white head that leaves lacing.

The smell is mild, but pleasant. Grapefruit character is there.

The taste is of citrus/grapefruit with pear. Hops stay just ahead of the sweet, firm malt. It has a semi-bitter finish.

Creamy smooth, it has a nice refreshing quality.

A nice choice for a more "balanced" IPA. (335 characters)

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy, golden color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, strong pale malt, hint of yeast, slight sugar, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, citrus hops, floral hops, slight grass, hint of pine, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, decent body, aroma, and blend, but nothing extraordinary. (480 characters)
