3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at Beer for Beasts. Pours amber and tastes of mild citrus hops, some Belgian yeasts, cloves, with mild spice. My commercial descriptions lists this as 7.1% alc which is as close as I like to get to session.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a fairly clear copper-orange color with a nice finger of frothy white head. The head had okay retention, reducing to a nice layer with some nice lacing.
S - Very nice citrus aroma with some earth hops mixed in. There is also some nice yeast spice to round off the nose. Very well balanced and very inviting.
T - Starts off nice and citrusy and a touch of hop bitterness with some earthy/floral undertones. In the middle, the yeast spice really shines. The finish is full of the citrus flavors and some nice lingering bitterness. Very well balanced.
M - Medium to medium-full bodied with some nice assertive carbonation. The finish is very dry and along with the carbonation, the beer feels super crisp overall.
D - Very drinkable. The taste is really excellent with a lot of balance and a lot of flavor. Overall, very smooth, crisp, and refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Received in trade from sixpoint, hand bottled at the brewery, thanks for the opportunity and generosity.
Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a fluffy white head that persists forever. Lace sticks to everything in sight. Smells of clove, bubblegum, spicy yeast, citrus hops. Very sweet smelling aroma, very interesting nose. Taste is malty, hints of clove, pepper, apricot, very sweet, but not cloying. Very dry finish. Medium body, sweet sticky mouthfeel, ample carbonation. Great Belgian style IPA. I’d love to sample this again.

I had something on tap at Le Poisson Rouge that was called Sixpoint IPA, and I’m guessing it is this. Light on the hops with a touch of ginger and orange. An easy drinking and enjoyable IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Blind tiger. i think this may have been one of my favorite ipas (and overall beers) of the lineup. Good deep gold-copper with a nice white head. Aroma is clean refined phenolic yeast, light fruity ester, orange hints, good citrus hops, - mostly fresh. Flavor is citrus, some pine, orange is big, some lemon, grass, phenolic yeast, spicy, pepper. Clean with a real snappy bitter finish that was pretty powerful, yet still easy drinking. I liked this quite a bit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a golden body with a mostly white head. Light and very sessionable more citrus then per say Belgian dusty hop tones that i would expect. A mild warming, some herbal and rather bitter hop additions. Nice overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Bar Ferdinand in Phila. Served in a pilsner glass. Small head with a little bit of lacing. Smells like a belgian with little hop aroma. Taste was of mild yeast and cloves. I’m not sure where the IPA part of this beer was but I didn’t taste it. Not a bad belgian but simply OK.

RnH: tap: pours a clear dark amber. The nose is mild, less hoppy... however the taste of hops is much more strong. The intial tast is of bright fruits with a strong, bitter end. Medium to high carbonation.
