4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2016 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.

The appearance really turned me off on this one quick. Had lots of junk floating about in it. Nasty looking! It smelled like an IPA and tasted like an IPA but the one taste was all I took just to say I tried it. Since here it is summer maybe the can I got was just past its freshness date.

Can from the store because they distribute Six Point here now which is cool. No idea how it pours cause I drank it from a can. Aroma is some bitter hops are caramel malts. Taste is the same. Bitter and somewhat sweet. Basically just an average red colored IPA. A

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Resin fruit aroma. Hazy amber bronze body with a thick off white head. Mild roasted malt with a hint of resin and fruit taste. Subtle bitterness but smooths out in the finish. Does have warm character.

Can at Seattle tasting. Rich orange, good foam. Big grapefruit. Soft resin, heavy, lots of grapefruit. Pithy. Bitter, astringent. Odd.

Your typical ale appearance. Smell is good, balanced, more malt than an IPA, more hop than your normal amber ale. Taste isn’t tame like your typical Amber.. like a hybrid of a brown/old ale and IPA. Not bad.

Draft at Eulogy. Slightly hazy medium-dark copper pour. Lasting off-white foamy ring. Nicely full body. Hoppy and juicy. Full hoppy blend. Not bad but not distinctive.

A malt-forward beer that’s also heavy on the bitterness, which I actually liked for the style. Big but balanced, and one of the better beers I’ve had from Sixpoint.

Okay, this is a Nugget Nectar clone. It looks like NN, it tastes like NN. Orange pour, frothy head. Aroma of tangerines. Tangerines and floral hops. Good stuff.
