4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 3/18/2016. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, honey, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a great pale/cream ale hybrid style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Amber pour, grainy aroma. Cereal, light fruit and caramel. Someone said lemongrass...I can see it. Nice full mouthfeel, coating on the tongue. Still zippy fruitiness. I liked it.

Smells of sweet malts oatmeal lemongrass and a touch Orange rind at the end. See through amber color. Taste starts off with slightly sweet malts followed by lemongrass a bit of Orange with a slightly bitter dry finish. Light body with sweet crisp carbonation. Not to many flavors in this brew but the ones that stand out I really enjoy this is a great summer beer. Nice work!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours an amber from a can. Tropical fruit and slight citrus notes in the nose, somewhat dank resinous flavor is added to the mix, very thin, not much malt backbone. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. Hazy, burnt orange colored beer with a frothy, white head. Aromas of grassy hops. Tastes of grassy/floral hops, some toffee, and toasted malt. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Bittersweet in the finish with some grapefruit/citrus notes. Hoppier than expected, more like an IPA than a cream ale in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looking to try a good cream ale, and this isn’t it. Pours a nice clear copper wit h thin white top. Aroma hits with hops foremost when I was hoping for malt. Way too much hops in the flavor and aftertaste obscures what may be decent malt characteristics. Ultimately this is just a strange take on pale ale.

12 oz signature Sixpoint can. Lighter clear golden pour with a thin fizz head. Surprised to see the cream ale tag here. Drinks more like a sweeter side pale. Hop sturdy and a refreshing, cool finish. Nice beer.
