Best before: 19NOV2012

A: Golden-orange-yellow with a fluffy, white head that fades into some good lace and bit of retention.

S: After the crack of the can opening, a burst of floral, tropical, and resiny hops slap you in the nose. Once poured into a glass, it's more subdued but still good, with more malt coming through as it warms.

T: Very resiny, piney, and earthy hops. Great malt backbone. Well-balanced and not overly hoppy but enough to satisfy any hop-head.

M: Super smooth, perfectly carbonated, and the right amount of bitterness. Great dry finish.

O: A fantastic American IPA. Well done, Sixpoint!

Update: drank a 4-pack dated best before March 2013 in October 2012 during Sunday football games...incredibly drinkable, tasty, and satisfying. Almost a session beer but the ABV is a bit high.
