16 oz can poured into an Allagash chalice. Best by date 17/NOV/2011. Diggin' the 4pk can offering.
A- Pours a mellow amber brassy hue from the can which sits an opaque orange color in glass. A small white head forms and then quickly dissolves to leave a foamy capping.
S- Ripe sweet oranges with a mild zesty tang. A floral scent of apricots. Pretty sweet and summer fruit smelling. Just wish it was stronger.
T- Starts out like the smell would indicate with sweet ripe orange, then transitions into a more grapefruit like bitterness. A light honey quality in the malt. Finishes with light dry caramel malt under citrus rhine bitter hops. Definitely a hop forward brew. The malt is pretty light and just provides enough body and flavor to not make this a palate wrecker.
M- Starts smooth then transition to pretty harsh bitterness. A full medium bodied IPA. Citrus flavors linger well and tingle the palate. The light caramel malt does a good job of drying out the tongue and palate, but isn't over powering.
O- A good IPA. Pretty easy to drink. The sweet orange taste was good and showcased some smoothness, but it was lost with the transition to more biting and harsh bitterness. Could be smoother in the finish. Would like to try fresher or on tap.

pours a brownish orange rust color. with just a bit of haze. 1 finger quickly dissapating off white head. smells of grapefruit & lemon with a handful of pine needles. although the citrus notes are pretty faint. taste is different than the smell. alot more bitterness than citrus notes. faint caramel malt backbone. this is my first beer from six point. i hear really good things about theyre other offerings. but im not to crazy about this one. yeah id drink it again if offered to me but not something id buy again.... cheers!
