COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ah love is bitter and sweet, but which is more sweet, the bitterness of the sweetness, none has spoken it.

Sweet action is an idea; a concept. It is a simple representation of what makes beer great - the marriage of barley and hops in a harmonious balance of sweet and bitter!

The glib poetry on the side of the can sums it up pretty well; this beer is sweet and hoppy and all-around tasty. I prefer it on tap, especially locally in NYC, but it's pretty awesome that it comes in 16 oz cans in the store. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vidmidia (275) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - DEC 31, 2014
Vermelha, límpida. Espuma abundante e duradoura. Aroma de biscoito e lúpulo, com toques de laranja e ameixa. Levemente amarga, equilibrada com leve adocicado, com toques de flor de laranjeira, laranja e menta. Retrogosto de longa duração com final amargo.

Vestlake (270) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2015
Can pour. Amber color with a one finger head. Aroma is floral and pine hops. Taste is thick and creamy, slightly sweet, with a slightly bitter finish. This is my first beer from Sixpoint and I was impressed. One of my favorites.

A: Pours hazy golden. Thin creamy tan head. Little retention but leaves very nice lacing. S: Pretty clean with hints of sweet fruits and floral hops. Nice, but could be stronger. T/M: Creamy, peachy, malty, sweet. Bitter floral hops. Smooth, medium bodied with the taste of melons. O: Bitter and sweet. Well balanced. Smooth and easy to drink. Nothing too complex, which makes for one of the better if not the best Cream Ales around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lb4lb (2583) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Pour is a very dark amber to orange color with a short-lived beige head. Smell is fresh hops clean and light. Taste is fresh also, hoppy, clean, fruity and unlike a cream ale. Very nicely balanced and super drinkable. Full body and crisp. Awesome smooth and something to get again when I want drinkable, and flavorful.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Strong smell of orange and tangerine. Fairly large carbonation, almost like an Orangina, but not that sweet. I like it well enough now in 20 degree weather with a blizzard bearing down, but it seems like a perfect match for spring and summer. *edit: Had another one a few weeks later and was even more impressed. One of the best session beers I know of. Eminently drinkable without being simple or watery.

BBD 3/18/15. Pours a clear amber. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of citrus hops (orange, tangerine) with a bit of spiciness over a grassy and herbal hop background. Hints of caramel are also quite evident. Light medium body with a nice smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a nice prickly finish. The outstanding flavor profile is slightly intense, a bit complex and perfectly balanced. A blend of hop flavor resides over a mild bitterness and covers the aromas of the nose. From the middle on, a bit of pine and orange zest come to the forefront with a touch of spice. As the bitterness ebbs, caramel and biscuit arrive to perfectly balance. The finish is clean and a tad dry.
