Poured from a 16 ounce tall boy can into a standard shaker pint glass.

Beer pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a thin, soapy head that lingers lazily before retreating to some clingy lacing.

Aroma is that of a pine forest. It's fresh, bright and incredibly clean. Some sweet caramel notes, but the piney hops are the star here.

Taste is quite similar to the nose. It's piney, hoppy and just a little bitter. There's just enough sweetness from the malt to balance out the flavor.

The mouthfeel is fairly light for an IPA. The carbonation is also light, but it works. With this level of carbonation, it drinks almost like a British IPA on cask. I'm really digging it.

Overall, at 6.4%, this isn't a hop bomb. What it is is a really well constructed, flavorful and balanced IPA. This was the first Sixpoint beer for me and I'll be on the lookout for more of their beers in the future.

Just a nice easy pour and a just a nice easy drink.
Light golden pour with a nice head. Hoppy nose but not that strong. It was full flavlored with a good amount of malt coming through.

Best thing I can say really is that it is such a easy and good drinking beer. Something I would do over and over

On tap at Zito's in Park Slope.

It poured a hazy gold/orange with a light tan head. The smell was piney, resin, citrus, and bread. The taste was a malty, hop forward east coast IPA. Citrus hits right in the middle. It's smooth on the finish with medium carbonation.

One of Sixpoint's best.
