3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of citrus and pine, comes off as a basic pale ale with some spicy yeasty notes. Medium amber, very lacy. Taste is citrus bitter, not knotty like the Resin, and sweet in equal parts malt and yeast. Very dry, medium body. Shared with family, well received all around.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2012 16oz can, best by February 17, 2013. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours hazy copper with a two finger white head that leaves clumpy drippy webs of lacing.
Unique aroma features big pine, peach/apricot, mango, spice, banana, caramel and bread, estery, wheat like, interesting as it comes across as a wheat IPA or Belgian IPA, but I don’t think that’s what they were going for. Very good strength in the aroma.
Flavor follows suit, pine, apricot, spice, fruity, rather malty with a strong caramel backbone, bready, some alcohol, mild sweetness, decent bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.
Interesting IPA. Give it credit for being unique, although far from my favorite in the style.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque amber-orange with a thin foam head that laces the glass completely. Light hop aroma of pine and citrus. Bitter citrus taste with moderate carbonation. Stale grapefruit aftertaste with a slight pine bite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11/20/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Clearish golden pour with a small tan head that cuts but laces plenty. Mild grapefruit in the aroma with earthy hops, minerals, and soapiness. Soapy hops, grapefruit, earthy green hops, minerals, and light pale malts and caramel. Definitely not a hop punch, but hey, that’s what they wanted, right?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden orange pour with a nice white head. Great lacing. Caramel and citrus are prominent in the aroma with a hint of pine. Taste is more malt forward with some orange and grass. Bitterness comes through in the end. Very easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can from Croxley’s. Pours lightly hazed amber with white head. Aromas of sweet malts, some pine, orange, and pungent hops. Flavors of orange, pine, sweet caramel malts, and moderate amount of hop bitterness. Hops and malt are lacking balance and ends kind of messy. Not bad, but not great either.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clearish amber, fizzy white head that laces really nicely. Some piney aroma, some citrusy too. It’s got a strong hop aroma, but not one i really love. Some tangerine and orange, but something weird too. Pretty malt forward IPA, lots of hop bitterness. Solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer pours clear golden color with a retained off white colored head. Aroma is predominantely hoppy, though a bit different from the West Coast IPAs I am used to. Taste is bitter and substantially yeasty. This strikes me as a Belgian IPA. Pretty tasty!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The best of the sixpoint beers on my rollercoaster ride through them. I’m sure it’s because I’m partial to the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16oz can. Pour is a gorgeous amber with a finger of frothy off-white head. Aroma is mild of pine, grapefruit and toffee. Taste is delicious with a strong bitterness up that stick around through the finish and sticks after. Light to medium bodies. Notes of caramel, orange and citrus. Pretty damn good. Canned IPA’s are becoming more popular. I like.
