12/18/2014. On tap. Amber color with a white head. Hoppy aromas with caramel and malt. Bitter flavors, almost like a pale ale, yet a bit more rounded. Bitter finish.

Can. Pours a clear dark copper body under a one finger frothy beige head. The nose is heavily malty with lots of caramel and a light citrusy hoppiness. The flavor is heavily malty with a heavy smooth caramel maltiness up front that fades to a bitter citrusy finish. Medium to full bodied with a nice mouth coating stickiness. Gentle carbonation level. A pretty nice Winter Warmer.

Wow, this was a surprise... Pint pour of moderate deep gold with full off white head. Nose of mostly hop with caramel malt, breadlines, and some zest, almost like rye. Flavor is plenty of hops again with bright citrus and pine. I seriously dig it.

Draught > Flying Saucer. This is good. Hoppy red ale. A little dry on the palate. Easy drinker. I'd order this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with one inch of yellow-cream head with moderate-slow frothy decay. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, bit of sap. A familiar, yet delicious American hop profile, lighter on the pineapple, sweet-orange notes. Body is oily with moderate blanket of soft carbonation. Flavor is more pine, grapefruit rind, a spicy bitterness that lingers (A bit much on the bitterness for the style in my opinion.) Nice amber ale, maybe up the fruity hop flavors (to be more in line with the aroma.)

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of hops and malt. Clear medium amber with a solid beige head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is clean malt that adds fizz and strong citrus hops on the swallow, the bitter coating the tongue through a long finish. A really solid "India" Amber Ale.

A well made winter seasonal ale from Sixpoint. Enjoyed the liberal hopping melded with a caramel/toasted malt backbone. Copper/amber in color with a fine foamy head.

On tap. Very pretty light golden color with a small tan head. Aroma is lots of earthy and citrus hops. Small malt caramel undertones with biscuit malt sweetness. Super hoppy Aroma. Flavor is hop forward with a super sweet caramel malty middle taste and a long hoppy bitter finish. Hoppiest amber ale I’ve had. Next Hoppiest is Maine Beer’s Zoe. Nice mouthfeel. Solid beer but I expect my ambers and red ales to be maltier.

I’m glad I got around to SixPoints again. Some IPAs have a great nose but finish a bit bitter. This is aromatic citrus hops with a smooth Carmel backbone.
Goes down smooth and balanced. Love the slim can.
Overall a chill beer. Nice job,
