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.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a creamy off white head that fades slowly and leaves gobs of lacing. The smell is very inviting, huge hops, pine and citrus are the dominating aromas, with a hint of sweet. The taste is huge, the pine comes through first in a big way followed with grapefruit like citrus, not as bitter as I expected from the smell, but some bitter comes through and extends through the aftertaste. A nice balance for such a huge flavor, the beer is medium, but a good consistency. A great IPA, well done with big flavor that doesn't get annoying.

16 oz. can poured into a Bell's pint glass.

Appearance: Clear amber. Thick off-white head with staying power.

Smell: fruity hops. Grapefruit. Orange.

Taste: Piney/Fruity hop character. Really nice. Balances well with bready malts. Finishes resin-y, which lingers on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Stickey resins. A smooth drinker for the amount of complexity.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. Nice balance.

Best by Jan 29 2013

A - Pours a slightly hazy orangish-brown with one finger of off-white head. Head doesn't persist to long, but leaves some nice lacing.

S - Nice mix of pine and citrus hops, with bread malts and a bit of caramel.

T - Nice punch of hop bitterness. Quite piney and resiny, with a good dose of citrus thrown in. Nice bread malts provide some balance for the quite bitter hop presence, along with some caramel. Very nice, especially with the modest abv.

M - Medium mouthfeel is quite bitter and dry, despite the decent malt presence. Quite creamy as well.

O - This one seems to be pretty devisive for some reason, but I found it to be an enjoyable American/English IPA hybrid with a nice aggressive hop presence.
