4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce can, best by Sept. 29, 2011. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a dense 2 finger off white head with great retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lasts. Some decent lacing is left on the glass as well. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, spicy rye, pine, and citrus. A lot of interesting aromas going on here, great stuff. Taste of caramel, rye, chocolate, pine, bread, nuttiness, and some citrus. Mostly malty sweetness on the front with a decent amount of bitterness on the finish that lingers for a bit with caramel, chocolate, bread, and pine. Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation. No alcohol noticed in the taste or finish. Decent amount of creaminess in the mouthfeel as well. Nice balance as well between sweetness and bitterness, with the sweetness being slightly stronger. Overall, an excellent rye ale, highly enjoyable and very drinkable stuff.

Pour is a deep brown color with a reddish hue with a light manilla head. Nose is of grains and citrus. Taste is very similar with a hint of hop in the finish with a nice leading grain note.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a tallboy into a snifter. Pours a really cool reddish brown... or dirt brown, depending on your perspective. Plenty of thick head on this one but little lacing and a whisp o’ lacing on the top of the brew. Aroma is of cinnamon, pine, watermelon and hops. Mouthfeel is tangy but thick, not too thick though. Taste is of pine, dough, lemon rind, pepper, and some unidentified sourness. Overall a really good beer. I am partial to rye beers and this one holds its own against any one I’ve ever tasted. Thank G-d that Sixpoint started canning!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can. Clear medium brown pour and a slowly dissipating head which left some nice lacing. Aroma is also really nice, very peppery/spicy hop nose. Flavor is light on malt, heavy on the rye which seemed to make it seem very dry while drinking the entire pint. Flavor was also nicely balanced with some nice hot hops which lingered long after the beer was swallowed. These Sixpoint cans are pretty solid, I need to get some more of these.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a near clear brown with a slight amber hue and a white head that laces thickly. Aroma has a really nice citrus hop note backed by some light pine and a nice rye note as well. Flavor begins with a bit of light rye that combines nicely with some citrus and grapefruit and has a bit of pine towards the finish. Really nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m a sucker for a beer which delves into rye for some reason and this one has a nice dark sticky malty base to it along with a generous dose of hops which have a wet citrus west coast style profile which accentuates things very well. There is a bit of a dark oil smelling caramel piece which I’m not fond of but overall I enjoy it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can... Poured dark, reddish with an off-white head. Sweet, slightly bittering tones from the rye. Honey, malt sweetness, and decent punch of earthy, peppery hops for balance. Very clean and a worty finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear reddish gold with a half inch head that retains very nicely. Aromas of rye, caramel, toast, orange zest, and earthy hops. Taste is neither sweet nor bitter. Like a lot of rye beers, this is pretty well balanced. The sweet rye, honey, and earthy notes are finished nicely by a mild citrus hop kick. Dry finish, not necessarily bitter like an IPA. Solid, semi-light mouthfeel. Not a huge Sixpoint fan, but I love rye beers and 16 oz cans. Well done.
