This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a slightly hazy to burnt yellow color with a rocky foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Adequate lacing stuck and then slid into the beer. The smell started with a sweet tropical fruits trying to blend with subtle spice but stays disconnected throughoutthe entire beer. The taste was pretty much the same thing with a lingering sweet to spicy weird harsh aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light still allowing the bitterness from the hops to bounce around on my tongue. Overall, I say this was an average session IPA, so most likely I probably wouldn’t come back to.

Pours an effervescent gold with a thumb of ivory colored head. Stellar lacing & above average head retention

S: Mango & orange juice

T: Follows the nose, some grapefruit & grassyness with a little bready dryness up front. Orange & grapefruit once warm with dryness as well, some mango as well, Finishes dry, crisp, with grapefruit & orange

MF: Medium body and soft carbonation, nice balance

Easy to drink, probably one of the best Session IPAs I've tried

Just checked and of the over 50 American IPA's that I have rated there are a only 2 with a lower IPA than the listed 4.8% in this Blue Point IPA.
Pours a clear pale straw yellow. Shows some great all white head that stays on and on.
Aroma: Fruity, grapefruit. Does have some bread malts to provide some balance.
Taste: About the same.
This beer was OK, but not in my wheelhouse.

Nabbed a sixer in Brooklyn for a wallet-blasting $13.00 USD (with tax). Ouch.

A beer billed as an IPA which is 4.80% ABV. Okay, I'm already skeptical...

Has a subtle hint of blueberry, playing to what Mosaic hops are known for. Pale malts keep it balanced, and it does have the medium body of an IPA.

Drinkable, approachable, and better than most. I'd wager it's worth a try.

A fruity hoppy front that fades into a bitter smooth finish. Not amazing could be better.

Taste Rating in Words: its roller or ice skating, a few cuts and smooth.

I've grown tired of session IPAs, a bit watery, let beer be beer.

A: The beer is clear piss yellow in color w light bubbles and little head or lace.
S: Mild aromas of mango and orange hops, a little tiresome scat.
T: Follows the smell, the taste has additional fruity and flowery flowers, and glides into a thin bitterness.
M: Thin, aspirin like, with a decent, clean bitter finish.

O: So-so.
