4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2014 A very novel approach to a winter seasonal, this Amber Ale tends towards an IPA with distincty fruity tendencies. Reminds me a bit of Sierra Nevada’s Flipside in flavor, although this is lighter bodied and a bit more grainy. Some subtle notes of watermelon in the flavor.

Reddish gold with lite tan head. Aroma very floral hoppy some pineapple. Smith and malty with lots of citrusy hoppy flavors. Very friendly bitterness in the middle followed by creamy malty grapefruit hoppy finish. Terrific beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can (Best before March 27, 2014) poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy dark brownish orange color with almost 2 fingers of off-white head. Good bit of sediment floating around. Good lacing as the head fades at an average pace. Aromas of piney hops, caramel, citrus, biscuit. Tasting notes of pine/resin, citrus, caramel, piney hops, biscuit/pretzel, light floral and spiced notes. Medium carbonation, light malty mouthfeel. Medium body, semi-dry finish. Drinks sort of like an amber/IPA hybrid.

This beer seems to fall somewhere in between an amber ale and American barley wine. Aggressive hops with strong citrus notes of grapefruit, orange peel, and a light resin are well balanced by maltier hints of caramel and toffee. Well structured and enjoyable beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy amber with a decent head that quickly dissipates. Huge hoppy pine aroma. Tastes slightly caramel and then a big whack of pine-resin hops that stays with you. The 7% alcohol is there too and well balanced. A fair amount of carbonation. Overall another great beer from Sixpoint.

Growler, Cumming Growler. Hazy amber pour. Tall foam. Smells of hops with caramel malts. Hoppy bite. Citrus hops linger on the palate. Quite boozy. Mellow flavor. Balanced. (3992)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-red pour with a large, fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor are a strong mix of pine and caramel malt. There is a good amount of bitterness as well as some resin notes from the hops. The alcohol is also noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit and floral hop aromatics are grounded in honeyed sugars before resinous bitterness settles this IPA-like brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the hazy amber.
-Malt character is lighter than expected.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-Mouthfeel is slender and carbonation is soft.
-This might not be the most memorable brew, but it is well made and enjoyable.

Can from Total Wine. Pours hazy amber with a medium sized khaki colored head. There is some resinous floaters in the glass. The aroma has plenty of the caramel malt notes, plenty of piney, floral hoppy notes, some tropical fruit, kind of reminds me of hopback by Troegs. The taste is medium hoppy, some citrus character, a lot more caramel than expected. Easy to drink for the ABV.
