This was my first try of anything of sixpoint's and I enjoyed this tasty, if not unique, AIPA. Very impressive nose, and with a taste to match. Slightly more bitter than I expected given that it wasn't extremely hopped. I also found this one drank just as well right out of the fridge as it did after sitting out and warming up for a few minutes. Looking forward to trying more from these folks!

This review was based off of two different cans. One was poured out into a glass and the other was drank from the can.

A: A very dark, cloudy amber. Three fingers of off white head.

S: Huge pine and grapefruit smell from the can. Dig a little deeper and there is tropical fruit and sweet malt.

T: From the can, there were intense pine and grapefruit flavors followed by tropical fruit. From the glass, it was more tropical fruit and citrus entwined with herbal notes. Biscuit malt and a slightly earthy hop.

M: Medium body and medium carb. Pretty typical here.

O: I'm a big Sixpoint fan and this one did not disappoint. For a fruitier experience drink from a glass. For a hopper experience, drink from the can. Either way, you can't go wrong.

can into pint

Appearance- slightly hazy gold/orange, thick white head

Aroma- Upfront pine, herbal, citris, big hops, but a caramel bready malt background as well.

Flavor- Tangerine, pine grapefruit rindes, juicy, creamy yet easy to drink, good firm bitterness, nice bready, malt holding it up.

Mouthfeel- Moderate carbonation, medium mouthfeel

Overall- Like this one alot. Worth trying for an ipa fan. I'm glad these guys started distributing near me, as this and resin have become my hop go tos lately.

Appearence: light amber, thick sticky foam that lasts for as long as I've seen head stick around and eventually settles into nice lacing. Light carbonation. A little cloudy.

Smell; a little bread, pleasant fruit. A touch of not unpleasant sourness. Subtle but enticing.

Taste: wonderful fruit flavor of tangerine, pinneapple and grapefruit. The maltiness compliments the hoppy taste In a nearly perfect way. The bitterness is perfectly balanced with the fruit and malt and far from offensive.

Mouthfeel: suprprisingly light. Very smooth. A touch of dryness but not a dry overall experience. Carbonation is light, as it appears to be.

Overall. Refreshing but just filling enough, , drinkable all year. Really impressive and probably caters to a wide range of beer drinkers. Great to introduce novice drinkers to the vast world of craft ales.Would buy again.
