This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

No one in their right mind would dispute it being... TOTALLY RADICAL. Sixpoint Rad is a unique blend of fruit juices with ale to create the original summer crusher. The first Sick Liquid form the MAd Scientists’ Laboratory - a refreshing take on what beer can be.

I do enjoy this, but its hardly beer... if you like grapefruit juice (i do) then youll like this. Its really good... for grapefruit juice. But this site is called beer advocate

I usually hate these things. But this. This wasn't bad. Just don't think of it as beer.

Appearance -
Opaque, murky apricot colour, some sediment and pulp. Virtually no head and effervescence or lacing. Lively carbonation.

Smell -
Summer fruits, peaches, apricots, orange peel, and grapefruit hops. A hint of yeast.

Taste -
Hoppy up front , with apricot, orange, peach nectar body. It's pretty much juice with a hoppy grapefruit undertones. Sour candy aftertaste. No surprises there. However, there's a hint of yeast to remind you it's a juice beer. Odd - not bad, above average, but odd.

Mouthfeel -
Prickly fizz on the tongue, medium body, sticky nectar and finishes cleanly.

Overall -
This is juice - thick, hoppy, yeasty juice.

Pours a light orange color with a fizzy head. The smell was full of sour grapefruit. The taste was heavy with the fruit juices and hops to give both a bitter and a sweet sour flavor to the beer. Interesting but I found it very heavy on off beat flavors making it hard to have more than one at a sitting.
