Beer Review: Blue Point Brewing Citrus Plunge

Blue Point Brewing Company out of Patchogue, New York is one more of those so-called former craft breweries to now be under ABInBev and looked upon as a macro brewery. For me as previously noted, I look at these breweries and their beers as being more of craft ones though, however, by the Brewers Association definition then macro would be the assumed definition. That being said, recently I had decided to pick-up their Citrus Plunge American IPA to look at here for another beer review. Even though it is not technically craft, it is beer and I have no problem trying those that may now be on the outside looking in when the opportunity may be presented. I don’t hunt for them but I don’t turn my nose up either.

That being said, I am looking to see what this one has to offer. The beer comes in with an alcohol content of 6.5% ABV and is marketed as being highlighted by the use of orange blossom honey and fresh blood oranges for an added sweetness to complement the citrusy hops used. Its availability is limited to March through September, but I am looking to see how this one is as I have been surprised by some of the other Blue Point offerings.

So go ahead and grab a pint and click the video below to join me, and check out this beer while you, “Get Your Beer On!” Cheers!
