Pours a clear copper with 1/2 finger head with decent retention. Smells mildy hoppy and malty. Tastes earthy, malty, and bitter. Good mouthfeel. Feels bland overall.

Look- The ale poured an awesome darker red brown copper with no haze detectable. Looked like a great copper/amber ale.
Smell- Like they said, it is a hoppy copper ale, so nothing too suprising; you get a deep smell of malts and that hint of citrus hops at the end.
Taste- has a bit of that biscut character supplimented with sweet malt flavor. The hops taste of a subdued citrus and leaving just a hint of bitterness in your mouth. As it got warmer a hint of spicyness came out at the end.
Feel- It feels like a medium bodied and medium carbonated ale. very nice, not too thin not too thick.

Overall- This was a great buy, would easliy drink this ale any day. The hoppy flavor of this ale makes it stand out against other copper ales that I have had before. I have been on a IPA binge lately and this ale really hit the spot with it's sweet malt character and slight bitter bite of hops at the end.

Blue Point Spring Fling | Blue Point Brewing Company, served on tap at Kate's Place Wine Bar and Eatery in Louisville, OH. Served in a mug this brew's head is two fingers thick and off-white, with lateral lacing, and a clear deep amber body.

I smell pine and citrus hops with a solid biscuit malt backbone.

Tastes like much of the aforementioned elements. All in a very good balance and an easy-drinker.

The mouthfeel I'm getting with this beer is light and refreshing. Mild carbonation here.

Overall, I'll rate Blue Point Spring Fling | Blue Point Brewing Company with an overall 4.75. Perhaps it was better since I enjoyed on tap, but still a very solid APA regardless. Give this a whirl when you're in a hoppy kinda mood.
