COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Sixpoint Spice of Life series is a celebration of one of the most popular but obscure plants on the planet - the hop. In this series, we release a new iteration of the same recipe every month- a total of 12 iterations per year. The recipe is for a straightforward American style IPA- brewed with only two different malts, a single hop varietal, and is fermented dry to accentuate hop flavor and aroma. We brew the exact same recipe every time with one interesting catch- each time we switch the hop strain. This method of adjusting one variable is called a "controlled experiment." But more important, it allows you to appreciate exactly how a different strain of hops can influence the flavor and aroma of beer!

Pours a hazy golden color with a medium creamy white head...nice lacing. Aroma has nice sitrus and stonefruits...just a hint of a buttery note. Flavor has mango and peach...a bit of spicy grapefruit...faint butter. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively with a bitter/spicy citrus finish.

lachrymalisis (381) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Seriously hazy, golden-orange pour, with big sticky white head. Not a sticky beer, mind you. Aromas of crisp citrus and grassy earth, followd by wheaty-cereal. Flavors are light and crisp with citrus and floral-earthiness coming out front with moderate bitterness. Finishes with an incredibly transparent cereal-grain flavor that is beautiful. Crisp and light body, medium-dry finish. really enjoyable and refreshing.
