4.63/5  rDev +24.8%
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.

I made an account specifically to rate this beer. I spent 2003-2007 stationed in Germany getting spoiled by their superior beer selection. Since being stateside the last 8 years few American beers taste as good as the Pils I had in Germany. Point Brewery's Beyond the Pale IPA gives the kick, hoppy flavor, and a cripsness to match the best I had in Germany. Very glad to have a go- to beer at home. Best I have found in the USA. Thank you Point Brewery!

Amber hued with excellent clarity for an IPA. There's a solid half inch of billowing tan head. Aroma is of somewhat dulled piny hops. Some citrus notes are more apparent in the aroma and taste as it warms. There's light lacing present. The taste is piny hops and yet it seems somehow muddled with grainy light malt. The mouth is lightly sticky and chewy.

I liked the Galaxy hop Beyond the Pale from SP. It poured a clear copper with white head that left a nice lace. The scent had floral tones. The taste was evenly balanced with floral and citru as notes being detected. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a good beer.
