3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Brazen Head. Cloudy brown beer. Aroma is lovely. Fruity and quite grainy with a rich rye toastiness. Strong citrusy hop character, lemon and grapefruit. Sweet and spicy. Soft maltiness. Light phenolic spiciness. The yeast is pretty understated in here, only a bit of bubble gum and a touch of clove, but the beer is still pretty good. I think this is one that will be better on tap than it is on cask. I still like it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Thirsty Moose. Served in a standard pint glass. Darker brown color, decent white head. Nose is mostly sweet, bread malt. Light citrus hops. Flavor is fruity hops, followed by grassy hop note ending in spicy rye bitterness. Yeast is present throughout the brew. The body is a bit watery. Decent good drinker but… a bit forgettable.

Cask at Brazen Head - after having the Granpa’s Nerve Tonic the night before, I can honestly say that this looked and tasted very much like it - of course, this isn’t exactly bad - cloudy brown beer - fresh, hoppy, "yup, that’s sixpoint" aroma - rye is apparent but not powerful - tastes hoppy and lightly fruity - some rye in the mix - nothing particularly belgian about it...at all - a bit of dark fruit (fig?) and spice - another tasty, albeit homogeneous sixpoint offering.

Cask @ Brazen Head: Poured a hazy dark amber color with an off-white head. Light fruity aroma with some notes of Belgian yeast, chocolate and pine. I also get a little chocolate in the flavor. Hoppy middle with an increase as the beer warms. Dry and long moderately bitter finish. Medium body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Rattle ’n Hum. Poured a slightly hazy dark orange/amber color. The head was off white and left some lace behind on the glass. Smelled of spicy rye, peanuts and toasted bread mostly. There were also whiffs of pine and mixed spices. Medium bodied and delicately sweet with mild to moderate bitterness. The flavor was similar to the aroma. Yes, I got nuts in the flavor as well. There was also a bit of banana. Not as much hop flavor as I would have liked, but not a bad beer.

I guess I will stick with the mode rating (completely coincidental). The beer is a dark amber color with a small sticky head. Aroma actually has something new for a Sixpoint beer, not a completely hoppy beer. There is a sweet spiciness that I attribute to the rye, like a lightly phenolic-y wheat. This is actually as strong if not stronger than the usual hop aromas of citrus and thick sweet floral tea. Taste combines the two aspects, with a reduction in the rye presence. The beer is sort of a light assault on the senses with the strong rye and strong hops. This was probably the best Sixpoint experience I had in a while.
Tap at Blind Tiger, served in tulip glass.
