Last can from Sixpoint.

A: The cream ale is amber, bright orange from top to bottom despite a mild haziness. Another ale that sports a rich lacing head.

S: Light and biscuity with a surprising hop kick. The malt side doesn't really stand a chance against the citrus hops.

T: The hop-centric nature of the cream ale is unusual. Each sip is quite light but packed with citrus and flowers. The first half of each sip is biscuit, gradually building to the hops by the halfway point. After the brief flourish, the hops fade away and the airy malts of the cream ale return. Very interesting while the hops loiter around.

M: The mouthfeel alternates between mild and vibrant; I like the vibrant side much better.

Serving type: can
