Blue Point Mosaic Session IPA 4.8% growler purchased at the brewery in October, 2017. Refrigerated ale poured into a simple glass

This is quite pale, with a moderate hoppy aroma. The head is small, and very white. Flavor features the Mosaic hop bitterness. I think this is a fine quenching drink. The hoppy aftertaste lasts for a minute.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; produced 01/13/17.
A: Pours a hazy, dark straw color with a fluffy, white one inch head, good retention, and some lacing.
S: Bouquet almost entirely citrus and tropical fruit.
T: Initially tastes tart and close to unsweetened grapefruit with pine/eucalyptus notes that resolve with time. Bitterness apparent slowly, but in very nice balance. Fruit pleasantly in aftertaste.
M: Light to medium bodied with solid carbonation throughout.
O: Really a nice Session IPA. I appreciate that this brew has this much flavor with a significantly lower ABV (4.8%).

A buddy of mine and I were on our annual baseball trip in NYC this year so of course we were sampling as many local brews as possible. I was on a bit of an IPA kick at the time so I ordered this one up.

This beer pours a glowing amber hue that is clear with moderate carbonation and a thin, white head that dissipates to a thin lacing quite quickly. 3.75/5 The aroma is primary of grapefruit and pine with a light caramel sweetness. This is really a nice, hoppy beer, especially for a session beer. 3.75/5 The flavor profile is just like the aroma, although the caramel sweetness stands out a bit more and really kicks things off quite nicely. The grapefruit and pine take over quite quickly and dominate the rest of the taste. Bitterness is light to moderate and really doesn't linger after swallowing. 3.75/5 This is a light bodied beer, as expected, with light carbonation and a moderate dryness that lingers for a bit after swallowing. 4/5 This is one of the more flavorful session beers that I have had recently and drinks pretty awesome at a ballpark. 3.75/5

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.
