Our first-ever seasonal can release arrives today, and it is brewed as a true celebration of this special moment in time. We made a trip out to Yakima Valley to the oldest continually operating hop farms in the country, and met with Patrick Smith, a 3rd generation hop grower. We selected and harvested 800 pounds of fresh “wet hops”

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2011 Flavorful hoppy aroma. Pours an amber color. Thin head. This beer is quite flavorful and I think six point may have tr ied to add too many flavors in the mix. Many flavors don’t come through. Slight ginger and much hops. No pumpkin.

Tallboy from the Perfect Pour, MD. Definitely not your average "spiced" autumn beer, thank Shango. Vigorous chestnut pour with a big crisp carbonation and head. Nose is quite dry and bitter, with the hops not nearly as floral as expected. The spice in the taste is of the biting rather than the sweet variety, and that complements the super dryness of the beer well. Nice, like an autumn version of Surly’s Bitter Brewer.

Pour was orange to copper in color with a pretty and nice looking white head. The aroma was resinous, herbal, earthy, grains. The flavor followed, firm bitterness supporting this, vegetal (non-oxidized) notes coming through too with a wood type element. Mouthfeel was pretty full bodied, moderate carbonation, slight hop zing.

Can [16oz]. Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average size lasting frothy white head. Decent lacing. Slightly odd aroma of pepper, other spices, some hops, citrus and pumpkin. Flavour is similar, with pepper, pumpkin, caramel malt, wood and a surprisingly bitter finish. Supposed to be ginger in here but I’m not getting any, unfortunately. Medium bodied. An odd beer but I didn’t dislike it.

Almost orange pour, decent head. Aroma is super grainy and spicey. Resinous hops out the wazoo. Lots of spices...although I don’t get a ton of ginger (which I normally hate in my beer). Pretty high bitterness level. Not a beer I’d run out to get again, but enjoyable.

Can to tulip. Rousing piney almost juniper hops aroma, very familiar if you have had other Sixpoint ales. Maybe there’s some clove or allspice, but I detect no pumpkins whoatsoever. Bit watery. Pumpkin spices are exceedingly subtle. So so bitter. Sure, some ginger. This is a hop fest. It’s not a good marriage of styles for me.

a little pumpkin, a little spice, not too shabby, tastes like a fall seasonal ive had before, good session ale for a fall beer.

Yay, another mediocre beer from Sixpoint. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a huge creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was strong floral and earthy hops with a nutty undertone. The flavor was strongly bitter with floral and harsh fruity hops and moderate resin. The hops completely overpower any pumpkin or spice save for a sour, tangy and off malty undertone. The finish was long, sour, tangy and hoppy. Medium body. Eh.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Clear gold-amber pour with a thick, foamy white head. Very strong leafy, grassy hop aroma. You can definitely tell these are wet hops. Extremely subtle pumpkin spice and caramel notes. The hops dominate the aroma, as well as the flavor. Very light sweetness, followed by waves of bitterness. More grassy and floral than citrrusy or piney. Faint underlying spices. Mouthfeel is medium-light and carbonated well. Pretty good as a wet hop ale, but dont go into this thinking it will taste like a pumpkin ale. The spices are overwhelmed by the hops. Not bad overall but I’d probably stick to their year-round offerings.
