4.03/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a copper-orange color with one finger off white head. The head has a decent level of retention, eventually fading to a persistent film on the top of the brew and a moderate level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is rather interesting. It has a good strong grapefruit aroma mixed with a bready smell. Along with these are strong floral and pine hop aromas as well as some lighter cinnamon and other spice smells.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready malt flavor and some fruit flavors of a citrus nature mixed with some tropical fruit. The citrus is a mix of grapefruit hop as well as an orange sweet taste. As the taste advances, some spice flavors enter the tongue. Neither the hop nor the spice are ever too heavy, but instead blend quite well with some of the bready flavors that are upfront. In the end, some pine hop flavors come to the tongue and with the flavors that preceded it, leave a smooth hopped and spiced flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium to above medium side in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is below average. The creamier body of the brew coupled with the lighter carbonation create a smooth feel and complement the hop, spice, and malt flavors of the brew nicely.

Overall – A rather enjoyable IPA. It had had a nice blend between sweet, hop, malt and spice. One to try if you get a chance.

$ 1.99/12 oz can at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Can BB 08May15 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Head small (2 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to a broken 2 - 4 mm layer
Lacing excellent – complete thick rings and stalactites of mostly small bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor begins with a fairly light piney hop presence which fades to a somewhat chalky bitterness with a short hang time. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, slightly oily, lively carbonation

Another pretty good beer from Sixpoint.
