A- Pours a nice golden color with a good 1" white head that leaves excellent lacing

S- Great mixture of citrus and piney hops that give me high hopes for the taste

T- Really good but a little watered down. Definitely get the hoppy background beer but it finishes quite light on the taste and could be much better than it is

M- Light as you'd expect but perhaps too much so

O- Great beer but doesn't quite meet its potential

A: Great looking beer. A brighter color of orange than most IPAs, although it might have been because I was outside in the setting sun.

S: Citrus, pines

T: Fruity, hoppy, bitter but well-balanced.

M: Finished great, pretty smooth for an IPA.

O: Very solid IPA. Order it almost every time at my local bar.

Poured into a becker.

Pours a massive pale yellow-white head that is creamy and sticky. Tons of lace clinging to the side of the glass. The brew is a clear golden orange color.

Smells of Piney, resinous, earthy, citrus hops and some malt sweetness.

Nice, even hop presence that is complex - earthy, piney, resinous, citrus fruit and a measure of maltiness that keeps everything in check a bit. Milder than I thought it would be, but very good.

Medium, crisp, with descent carbonation.

First go around with Sixpoint and not disappointed. I thought this would have been a bit bigger, but wow I could really get into this one. I'm glad to have 3 more left. Highly drinkable from a hophead perspective anyway.

Thanks to brooklynbrews for this one. Poured into 16oz nonic. Poured a lightly cloudy orange-yellow color with over an inch of thick, rich, creamy head that had excellent retention and lacing. There were thick, sticky rings throughout the life of the beer.

The aroma was mostly bright hops, predominately citrus, of a noticeable malt base. A very nice combo of scents. The flavors were mostly the same, bold citrus hops over a solid malt base. There was a bit of sweetness in the middle and a dry finish.

The body was very good as well, a bit fuller than average without being heavy. Drinkability was very good, I certainly want more of this beer. Overall, a very good brew that would be a regular drinker for me were it available locally. A must try if you see it.
