3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This would be my second Sixpoint of the evening. I am expecting something terribly different after the last beer I had, so when I break open the top to this one, I have my nose to the open tab immediately. Wow! Very traditional and VERY hop-forward, the aroma is a monster; apricot-infused pine and it even smells sticky. The scent is enticing, and I am really having a hard time not tasting right away, but I’m glad I don’t break down and sneak a sip. This is a bittersweet aroma, heady and thick; the experience is equal parts explosive pine resin, sticky fruits, and sweet caramel. -- Not a quick drinker, the premiere quaff on this brew is a sticky, sweet mess in my mouth right up until I swallow; then comes the dry, the biting on the inside of my lips, and the sting to the soft underside of my tongue. It’s perfectly carbed and the slightly abusive taste is evenly diffused through the orange-auburn liquid. The aroma is unaffected by the small, off-white foam riding listlessly above the brew. -- The finish is wonderful; lengthy and bitter, full of flavor and character, and not flat like so many really bitter brews can be. I’m excited to have gotten to try it, and hope to have another experience with Sixpoint again, very soon.

Can. Brown Amber with a huge tight head. Big English malt presence in the aroma and taste with some pine and bread crust. Solid but, I wouldn't get this again.

Pours an amber yellow with a great white head which slowly recedes to a lacing. Aroma is citrusy and slightly malty. Taste is bitter hops, slight pleasant citric fruits and then some caramel/breadiness.

Poured from can. Aroma of floral and citrus hops along with fruit and wet malt. Good lookin Amber with lacing head. Good hop presence - seems to be pine / floral / citrus combo. Also getting grass, spice and pear. Malt balances this nicely. Well done.

Cervesa de llauna, molt aromàtica i gustosa, destaquen els tocs cítrics.
Cerveza de lata, muy aromática y sabrosa, detacan los toques cítricos.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium gold with a big white head that doesn’t last long. Nice orange citrus aroma. Taste is more piney hoppy flavor with a slight citrus taste. Overall a good beer in a can. Good camping beer if you want a little hoppiness.
