4.09/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

16oz can, straight from the can

A - Can't really judge appearance, 16oz can, picked up while travelling on business, so all I have available is paper cups in the hotel room.

S - awesome. Huge on the candy cinnamon orange aspect. Where lots of great IPAs lean towards the floral, lemon/lime type hop smell, this one is a rich musty orange. Orange rind, orange fruit, clove, cinnamon, some other citrus earthy spice notes. Great nose on this one.

T - follows the nose pretty right on. Mild bitterness to start, then some thick juicy hops following the rich orange and candy notes, very mild cinnamon, nice finish with some lingering bitterness.

M - pretty nice for an IPA. Carb is nice, finishes well, a little coat from the hops.

Overall - I've tried other sixpoint brews and they weren't necessarily my favorite. This one, however, is right on. Lots of points for originality. This beer walks just far enough outside the normal lines of an IPA to make it very interesting, while still hitting all the right IPA notes. I might burn out on this one over time, but I would like the chance to. Picked up a 4 pack and would definitely have another if given the opportunity.

Fantastic. The beer pours a nice orange/yellow with a nice head that trails the glass. The smell had a lot of great hop notes to it while also getting a little bit of sweetness from the malt. The taste was similar with pine and floral notes from the hops and then a mellow crisp finish. A very well balanced beer that made for a delicious experience. Would definitely recommend.
