A dear friend of mine said she was going to bring me some Sixpoint back from Brooklyn, where she moved permanently. I expected 4 different cans, but got 3 different 4 packs!

Best by 01 Dec 2011, so I'd wager its mighty fresh.

Appearance
Poured into a Perfect Pint, this 16oz can makes me want the 22oz Perfect Pint. The beer has a nice head with very good sticky lacing. The beer has a haze to its burning orange color.

Aroma
This is my favorite part of this beer, and almost any IPA in general. The aroma is packed with citrus but stays pretty aggressive. Lime zest is a unique smell that this beer has. Some dank herbal stuff is matched by lovely floral appointments. Some pine and orange round it out.

Taste
This beer is made up of equal parts citrus juiciness and fresh, green bitterness. The pine here is very fresh and tastes sweeter and sappier than the pine in most other IPAs. There are suggestions of orange creme and lemon-lime zest.

Mouthfeel
Very sticky, oily and dry, dry, dry. On second thought, this is my favorite part of this beer.

Overall
A damn solid IPA. I'm glad I was given 4 of these bad boys.

$ 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.
