Served on tap at Sunset Grill and Tap.

Appearance is a nice orange medium amber, crystal clear, with a slight white head.

Aroma is notably hoppy, earthy and floral with a hint of malt, too.

Flavor has a hint of roastiness, low sweetness, with a bit of grassiness or earthiness.

Nice bitter bite, well balanced with the flavor and aroma.

Very nicely drinkable beer. Nice, complex flavor and aroma, too. IPA is a category with a lot of competition and a lot of imbalanced examples. Sixpoint's is a winner.

I would have had a second pint, but this one just barely lost out to Sixpoint Masons Black Wheat so I had another pint of that instead. Two wins on my first exposure to Sixpoint--skilled brewers who I'll be looking for.

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.

A - Light amber, high carbonation, nice tall and frothy white head. Lots of lacing.

S - Lots of sweet caramel malt with a hint of citrus.

T - Whoa, that is a sweet IPA, too much residual sugar. Sweet malt dominates the flavor with the hop bitterness taking a back seat. End with a bitter bite, but the hops are a bit hidden behind all the sweetness.

M - Moderate body, a bit syrupy, would like some more crispness...feels more like a DIPA.

O - It's alright, a lot like their Sweet Action with more hops in the boil. Won't be searching this one out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

pours a brownish orange rust color. with just a bit of haze. 1 finger quickly dissapating off white head. smells of grapefruit & lemon with a handful of pine needles. although the citrus notes are pretty faint. taste is different than the smell. alot more bitterness than citrus notes. faint caramel malt backbone. this is my first beer from six point. i hear really good things about theyre other offerings. but im not to crazy about this one. yeah id drink it again if offered to me but not something id buy again.... cheers!
