Pours a hazy deep bronze. Little bit of froth and lacing on top. Smells really sweet and boggy. Caramel strawberries and some wet hops. Taste is quite big. Little pop of citrus up front. Follows with some solid but not over bearing hops. Decent malt backbone. Feels on the thicker side. Little bit of booze going on

Nice winter warmer especially for a red ale.

Serving Type - Can

Appearance - Golden tan/burnt brown with a nice creamy 2 inch head, lots of lacing.

Smell - Sweet mix of hops, caramel malts and spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Grapefruit, pine and a bready aroma round it out.

Taste - First sip is heavy pine hops, with a sweet backbone of caramel malts. Spices add multiple flavors, ginger really sticks out. Some cinnamon and nutmeg come out near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Bitter hops coat the tongue with pine and grapefruit. Spices really stand out on the palate, along with some bready, caramel malts. The aftertaste is bitter, piney and spiced.

Overall - Really tasty, much more of a hop bomb then expected. This doesn't seem like a winter warmer at all, seems like sixpoints version of sierra nevada's celebration ale minus the fresh hops. Very flavorful, balanced well, and easy to enjoy. Another winner from sixpoint.

This is the best beer from sixpoint that I've ever had- while IMO that's not saying all that much, this is still an enjoyable colder season beer.

Pours a very nice clear mahogany color with a finger of off-white head, good retention and nice circles of lacing.

Smell is bready and hoppy. Definitely detect some ginger in there along with the usual suspects: caramel malt, base grains and some citrusy hops of the grapefruit variety.

Taste is about the same- breadiness and hoppiness overlap with the bread first. Well balanced malt and hop profiles.

Mouthfeel is pretty good- medium body, modestly carbonated, not too sticky. This is actually a good beer. Nothing unbelievable but good enough to distract me briefly from my celebration ale binge. Worth a try for sure.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, best before 3/14. Pours a bright reddish orange, with a attractive one inch white head that leaves behind lots of sticky lace. Smell tangerine, apricot, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and faint grapefruit. Taste all of that, sweat caramel upfront, gives way to a tropical finish. Would like a little more carbonation, maybe a medium body, not really dry, and goes down easily. Nice brew, been loving the hoppy reds this late fall.
