3.57/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dispensed a gold body, nearly clear, with a standard-sized, white head.

Smell: A top note of just-sliced tropical melon, slight floral hints, a bit of citrus. Very modest malts beneath the hop aromas.

Taste: A little, light taste of cereal malts introducing a fast, brief sweetness. Tropical fruit component supported by fresh floral accents and some citrus. Pop of bitterness. The flavors gently recede until the finish with the bitterness lingering into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Well, it is what it said it was!

I had this beer on tap at David Burke Prime Steakhouse in Foxwoods Casino. I found it drinkable and the quality was fine but nowhere near my favorite IPA.

This ale came light gold in color with a thin white head. The smell and flavor go hand-in-hand. There’s a large amount herbal and pine with no great bitterness at all. There’s a big lack of malt which makes the mouth feel a bit watery.

Nothing turns me off more than a watery mouth feel, hence my score. It's the reason I drink craft beer in the first place. Others may like this version of IPA but its not for me.

Light, refreshing, no overwhelming bitterness...but way, way too lemony (Mosaic hops?).

look;pale yellow with a slight orangy hue, thin head that disappears quickly, leaves a little lacing, minimal carbonation
smell; fruity floral citrus mosaic medium malt, well balanced
taste; follows smell, malt a little more pronounced and some pine in finish
feel; has a dry tasting finish but feels somehow wet, mild to moderate carbonation in the feel, i like it
overall; nice well balanced beer, noticed most of you reported nice head and lacing, don't know what was up with mine, poured from a 16oz can into a clean tulip pint glass

A = Light golden amber, similar to a heavy lager. Frothy head with very little lacing.

S = Fresh, Hoppy, Light Flowers.

T = Lovely hoppiness, lightly malted. Very crisp and finishes dry on the palate.

M = Fresh, light-medium bodied. Just enough carbonation.

O = Mine was bottle on 6/4/14 and tasted on 8/3/14. Delicious and fresh and extremely "session worthy."" A great summer IPA. Lucky YOU, who live on Long Island! Cheers!

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.

12 oz bottle, later revisited on tap (better).
Pale amber color with a very durable off-white head.

Mildly pungent aroma of Mosaic hops with a hint of honey.
These also dominate the flavor. {Note that Mosaic is not among my favorite hop varieties}

Feel: near medium body and medium carbonation.

O: a very flavorful version of a low ABV IPA. A winner if you want a session IPA built on Mosaic hops.

Aroma is clean grainy pale malt with mosaic scents of candy fruit, indeterminate berries, melon, peach, earthy mixed with tropical. Some piney citrus as well. Taste is similar. All around this is soft in intensity, as is appropriate with a session beer I suppose. Bitterness is easy throughout, then perky through the finish. Flavors include pine, melon gone tropical, floral, some spice and citrus. Not bad. Mouthfeel is clean and liquidy, with a touch of swirly creaminess.... Medium-light in body and certainly easy to consume. This beer is pleasant with an interesting hop profile.
