On draft. Pour was orange gold. The head was weak, lacing ok. The aroma was floral, orange/citrus. Flavor had some orangey zest in it, musty notes. More bitterness desired. Underwhelming run of Sixpoint pale ales in a Sixpoint tap takeover.

kaser (2643) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Poured from draft. Hazy light orange. Not much aroma. Looks better than it tastes. Boring taste. Somewhat hoppy and grapefruit hints. Just ok for being my style of beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pilgrimoutlaw (766) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2012
On tap at Whole Foods. Orangish/golden pour with two finger white head. Citrusy at first, but changes to pine as it warms, some floral notes. High bitterness with long aftertaste, moderate sweetness that you don’t notice until later. The aromas don’t quite blend well, but it’s a decent beer nonetheless.

Lukaduke (2153) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Draft @ LFK . Poured a slightly hazy light golden color with a finger of foam... Aromas are earthy straw, grapefruit and a touch of rotten apple. On the palate it follows the nose with a strong wood pulp, straw, wet hay backbone being brightened up by some citrusy grapefruit... a bit fuller than Id like on the mouthfeel and a bit sticky too. Not my favorite of the spice of life series but I applaude the concept.

NikkTwist (1598) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Draft at Khyber Pass. Poured a very cloudy brown orange. Frothy off-white head that left lace. Strong bitter and earthy. Bit like muddy well water. Rotting orange peels. Hay. Pineneedles. Harsh but bold. Unlike any other single hop brew I have had.

czar (4292) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2012
on tap at reservoir, waterbury. hazy golden, orange tint, with a decent white head head, little retention. floral, crisp malts, citrusy, zesty. almost aggressive carbonation, light body - faint malts, decent citrusy finish. slightly unbalanced though.

Pours an orange color. Smells slightly of hops. Nice flavors with some citrus. Not overly hoppy.

DrSilverworm (6318) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
16oz pint at Habits Cafe. Good thin off-white head. Hazy orange yellow color, with some particles floating about in the body. Good crisp lighter carbonation, more dry texture. Some orange, light pepper, grassy herbs. Little lace. Light bitter taste, some zest. I always enjoy trying these single-hop brews. Great way to learn about what a particular hop varietal brings to a brew

mcberko (6331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
On tap at The Reservoir in Waterbury, VT. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is quite mild, a hint of floral notes and some subtle funky notes. Flavour features floral and perfumey hop notes, with only a tad of funk. Way more perfumey and way less funky than the Riwaka pale ale I just had by Hill Farmstead (needless to say, which is better). The perfume notes become annoying the more you drink, forcing me to lower my score. Decent IPA, but not a good use of these hops.

kidmartinek (3640) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Hazy golden color with a small white head. Funky musty smell. Superior. Bland bitter flavor that finishes slightly sweet. That’s how it starts and finishes. The flavors morph. Heavy carbonation crates a cleansing finish.
