Poured it into a mug. Poured a clear amber, copper and red/orange combination. A thick head about 4 thumbnails long shows good retention.
While pouring it out of the can, I can smell the hops presence. In the mug I detect less of the hops aroma and more of a citric/orange peel like smell. Towards the end of the drink, a malty sweet presence appears.
The taste has a slight malt presence that is almost overpowered by the hops bitterness and bitter finish. There is also a hint of a bready quality.
Feel is fairly light like a lager. Carbonation not so lively but it does sting the tongue somewhat.
Not a terrible beer, however there is something about the balance that bothers me. Other amber ales that I enjoyed had a toasted malt quality that was sweet but well balanced against the hops. In this beer, I feel that the hops bitterness overpowers the other tastes I associate with amber ales. Although I would not rule out buying this one again, I'm not so enthusiastic. I love six point brewery's products, however, this one is my least favorite so far.

Aroma is dank, resiny, and a touch citrusy, but the cannabis rules the day. Flavor reveals more muddled, fruity hop flavoring, which rests on a dank bed of hops that becomes substantially bitter at the finish. I'm not a bitter fan, so too much for my liking.
