look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours a deep orange with a half finger of head, good lacing.

Smell is pears, bready, grapefruit, citrus with orange being the most prevalent

Taste is oranges, passion fruit, bittering grapefruit, a good deal of malt comes through in this one as well, caramel and bread are the two most prevalent malt characters

Mouthfeel is the lighter side of medium, crisp and slightly drying in the finish.

Wow, all I can say Point has officially earned a permanent spot in my fridge with this beer! I will have to thank RIO for the suggestion of this one.

Do not go past this one because of its low price and being brewed by Point! Really good stuff here! Way to knock it out of the park guys!

Pours up to a nice permanent buff head that leaves delicate lace. Color is a bright copper. Aroma is a nice blend of floral and citrus hops with a nice malt backdrop. Flavor is surprisingly sessionable and balanced with pale and light crystal malts balanced with citrus and floral flavor hops and a balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is light-medium. Overall a very good and easy drinking IPA.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
6.5% ABV,

A - Hazed ever-so-slightly, Beyond The Pale goes beyond pale into a slightly tarnished, robust golden amber color that's topped by a long-lasting ivory head. Wisps of thin lace trace lines across the pint as it's consumed.

S - A bouquet of American hops present a bold aroma of pine and fruit; lemon peel, pinecone and pine needle with undertones of ripe mango and sweet pineapple. Sweet and bready caramel and Munich-like malt provide a sturdy base to this dry-hopped aroma for an aggressive, fragrant IPA nose finished off with a faint hint of sulfur.

T - Malt heavy as the aroma suggested, Beyond The Pale focuses on sweet caramelized notes and dense breadiness which brings good balance to the beer, but it's full hop aroma seems to get lost in space, fading out with a kiss goodbye of tropical fruit.

M - Plenty bitter, the hops shimmer here the most, really offering a punch of hops that the flavor seems to forget. This medium-full bodied beer finishes with hop dryness and powerful bitterness cut through the sweetness of the malt for a strong-yet-balanced mouthfeel.

O - Point Beyond The Pale does just that; goes beyond a pale ale, but maybe in one small step, not one giant leap. This beer brings it with the hops in both aroma and bitterness, though dryhopping only goes so far. Focused hop flavor is minimal leaving a plethora of malt taking point. Beyond The Pale isn't offensive, it just doesn't pack a a flavor wallop to back up the IBUs.

Poured 12oz bottle into Duvel Tulip

A - Pours a nice copper hue with a nice creamy one and a half finger tall white head, almost no lacing.

S - Smells of floral and galaxy hops, light grapefruit and passion fruit with a hint of bready malt.

T - First sip gives a light bitterness and then hints of grapefruits, passion fruit, caramel malt and some light breadiness. Finish is a mix of hop bitterness and a touch of sweetness, lingering for some time after consumption.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, hoppy feel that lingers on the pallet long after each sip.

O - I know this is Point brewery, but I like this beer. The galaxy hops were a great choice for this one. I would say it is more like an APA with a nice hop flavor and very easy drinking. Priced well at under $7 a 6 pack.
