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.

$ 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.
