thanks to keef for the hookup! Been wanting to try this one!
pours a caramely tangerine hue with a creamy foamy two-finger head that fades slowly and heaves bits of lace. a tinge murky.
aroma is incredible. earthy, malty with honey and caramel notes. then an intense citrusy blast... oranges and grapefruit with some pear and floral notes.
the taste is a bit odd. intensely citrusy, almost like citric acid mixed with metal. not sure I'm digging it. as it warms, more malt opens up, with caramel, honey, and straw. harsh, boozy and rough.
carbonation is high... too much so... and the citric finish leaves an almost unpleasant harsh bitterness.
huh. not what I was hoping for. maybe my palette just isn't built to enjoy this one? smells great, but kind of falls short from there. maybe the can I cracked was off a bit? I'd like to try a few more to be able to make sure my judgement is right.

$ 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.
