I've been interested in trying this for awhile and picked up a 4 pack ($8.99 Total Wine). This is my first beer from Sixpoint.

A - Nice looking medium brown color when poured into a tulip

S - There is element of hops in the smell but I'm also catching a fair amount of yeast which isn't what I want to smell in an IPA

T - Dry with some hops. Lots of malt and a heavy yeast flavor.

M - Carbonation feels about right. No complaints.

Having not had this beer before I'm wondering if I got a bad batch based on the other reviews. The DBD is still over 3 months out so it's not excessively old or anything. I caught way too much yeast in this beer for my liking. Hopefully I can try this on tap somewhere along the way to confirm the bad batch theory. If what I got was what Sixpoint is trying for then I'll save this one for other patrons.

A solid AIPA, in a tall boy can, no less. Pour was a deep amber with an agressive, tight head. More malt presence than average for the style, but no so much as to detract from the hops-centric nature of the beer. Hops were resinous with some bite up front, herbal and sharp. Malt almost stepped in too much in the middle, but reigned back and the hops carried through. Some sweetness rises toward the end with the malt.

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
