Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a hazy orange colored brew with only a tiny head. The head fades very fast to leave almost no lacing.
Smell – The smell is rather light. There are hints of a bready aroma as well as a very light citrus and pine smell.
Taste – The taste begins with some bread flavors and a lighter citrus hop flavor. The citrus is largely orange peel in nature, but some light flavors of grapefruit. In the middle of the taste some lemon comes to the tongue and mixes with the rest. The taste ends with a pine and earthy bite, which leave a lightly bittered flavor on the tongue
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is just above average. Not bad for the style of the beer and gives it a crisper feel.
Overall – A decent beer, but nothing too exceptional. Nothing really stands out in this one, but nothing really takes away either.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter at the brass tap midotwn tallahassee, Pours a copper orange with tangerine highlights when backlit. Head is comprised of big off white sticky bubbles and tattered sheets of spongey lace. Head deflates quickly in to a sheet of large bubbled foam. Aroma consists of bright grapefruit and citrus hops with some sweet mango mixed in. Aroma is strong though not complex but simple is good with this profile. Taste is hoppy with lemon zest and white grapefruit citrus dominates up front the beer trails off mostly after this as mid pallet is void of anything in particular and the finish comes up with a mineral and chalky dry finish. The hang is bitter and consists of a little pine and citrus. This beer smells tastes and drinks like a pale. Im not exactly sure what puts it into the cream ale category accept for maybe the lack of a malt backbone. That being said it feels intentional while drinking it not like just an under done pale ,but I do like my cream ales with a little lactose or dextrose which this seems to lack. The mouthfeel is light and crisp slightly fizzy but not to a fault. Not really what I was expecting at all from this style , this beer falls into the different but not bad category, A great poolside or beach option when looking for something crisp in a can. Overall not a bad beer by any means. Sixpoint delivers as usual.

4.84/5 rDev +24.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
A: Orange with slight red. 2 finger creamy head. lacing falls apart though and sinks back down into beer.
S: Orange, grapefruit, tangerine, sweet grass. Reminds me of prickly pear cactus for some reason. The citrus hops fade nice into a subtly sweet malty, light and slick-smelling base.
M: Smooth, velvety, creamy, medium body. Medium carbonation level and slightly dry finish.
T/O: It does indeed taste like an orange creamsicle, but it has enough hop bitterness to balance the back end. Not too sweet, not too bitter, well put together. Too sweet to be an APA. More consistent with a light EPA with higher carbonation level that makes it taste crisper. Honey rolls, caramel flavors not pronounced but qualities of both found. Creaminess from the caramel; and, floral sweetness with a bready backbone from honey rolls. I could drink these forever.
