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.

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,

Can at the Sybarite Pig in Boca. Pours a reddish amber with haze in a snifter. Decent head and lacing. The aroma is quite fresh pine hoppiness, pine resin, fresh grass, weeds, and bread/cereal. The taste is similar with significant fresh hops and a malty backbone. Well carbonated, easy to drink. Very refreshing. Bitter hop finish.

Transfer from BA review on 1-7-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served with a medium amber color with a one finger of an off white colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a grapefruit and pine hop smell mixed with some other hop aromas of grass. Along with these smells are some sweeter aromas of a tropical fruit nature with tangerine and a bit of mango. A little bit of caramel and roasted malt smells are in there as well, rounding out the smell to produce a pretty smooth and nice IPA like aroma. Taste – The taste begins a lightly toasted malt taste with a relatively strong presence of grapefruit and pine hop right up front. Some sweetness of a caramel nature is upfront as well, giving the beer a moderate level of sweetness. As the taste advances the sweeter caramel is replaced by some sweeter tropical fruit flavors of tangerine, pineapple and mango. The grapefruit and pine hop flavors get more intense, bitter, and resinous in nature as the flavor advances to the end. With a little bit of grass joining the taste profile late in the taste, one is left with a rather strongly pine and grapefruity hopped and tropical fruity sweetened flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side with a carbonation level that is average as well. The medium carbonation and body are nice for the blend of fruity and hoppy flavors and creates a rather nice easy drinking brew overall. Overall – A rather tasty red IPA with a nice blend of grapefruit and pine hop mixed with a nice level of sweetness. A nice drinker overall.
