American Pale Lager |  7.20% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
The brew is an energetically hopped lager with a notable wheat component. It taps into a current of hop-forward Sixpoint beers, while remaining a distinct Mad Scientists formulation. In the glass, a light amber glow shimmers with a 7.2% ABV and a formidable 58 IBU of bittering power – Sixpoint TESLA is uniquely an “Electrified Wheat Lager.”

A - Amber as all get out. Beautiful lacing and the head was more pillowy than I expected it to be.

S - The nose was so extreme that my friends and I noticed it as the bartender handed it to me. Strong hoppiness, a bit of citrus, but not too much.

T - The nose translated very well to the palate with this one. Strong and smooth citrus, with some great pine notes.

M - Effervescent, but exactly the right amount. I normally don't go for a lager, but this one truly was quenching, both for my thirst and my palate. The finish was clean with little oppressive bitterness.

O - Absolutely impressed by this one from Sixpoint. Honestly, this is better than Resin IMO. If there is a bar near you getting a keg, definitely hop over there and grab a pint, you will not regret it.

Picked up a small pour locally earlier in the day, enjoyed from a sixpoint spice of life snifter.

a - brew pours a semi transparent deep orange with a frothy oily head that didn't hang out too long and left spotty lace.

s - nose is definitely as advertised, electrified hoppy wheat lager...and that about sums it up. Really zesty.

t/m/o - taste is a medley of a wheat beer, a spiced beer, and a hoppy lager. Very resinous in the hopping which clashes a bit with the wheaty aspects in my opinion...either way an interesting beer for certain. A bit like citrus powder was added to a wheat IMF such a thing is possible. Glad to try but not my thing.
