    A clear apricot coloring with a small white head that dissipates quickly. A clean floral aroma with hints of spruce or pineyness. A very nice hop explosion with a drifting aftertaste. A clean IPA that is not too overwhelming. Refreshing carbonation. Very sprucy flavor versus a citrus tone. I think this is my first blue point beer and I will reccomend it to my group "IPA Lovers"

    Clear copper color, small white head that quickly dissipates leaving just a little bit of lacing.
    Decent hop presence in the aroma, dominated by pine with some floral and citrus. Sweet caramel notes also faintly present.
    Can taste some sweet maltiness but the balance is a little off with the bitterness. Has more piny than citrus hop flavor like the aroma and is quite drinkable, not way out there on the IBU's.
    Thinner bodied, slightly dry and a tad bit overcarbonated.
    Overall a decent IPA.
