Blue Point Brewing Co. Hoptical Illusion (7%)

This is a decent little bottle of IPA that hides its alcohol very well.
It sits a bright gold in my glass, its little frothy head fizzing with life, and smells of honey and tangerines.
As you’d expect, there’s a whole lot of hoppy goodness going on in here, from pithy lime leaves to sherbet lemon, the aforementioned tangerines and a big bunch of steely garden herbs.
But I particularly like the malting in here.
It’s soft and supple, subtle but not hiding away, a gentle creamy caramel brioche bun makes up the main body and you find a little peanut brittle and brown sugar floating about too.
All in all very nice indeed.
