Best by 5/8/15. 12oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours golden with a nice fluffy off-white head that sticks around and leaves great lacing and retention. This cream ale has alot of IPA qualities, which I didn't expect. The aromas have alot of orange and grapefruit. Citrus notes are there. Some hints of caramel malts as well. Smells nice. More hops in the flavors. More citrus and malts. Lemon and lime zest. Some fresh pine too. Some bread and toast. Some honey is the mix as well. It's bittersweet. Mouthfeel is nice. It's light, but has a solid creamy body to it. There's moderate carbonation and it's fluffy. Very refreshing.

This reminds me of a light IPA or a pale ale, not really a cream ale. But who cares, it's still a fun beer to drink and it's very enjoyable. I've been diggin' Sixpoint lately.

Pours a nice rusty amber that is slightly cloudy and a deliciously sweet two finger head.

An aroma of caramel and roasted malts, are gentle on the nose and very inviting.

Sweet caramel, slight citrus, and a slight spicy hop profile are very well balanced.

Mouthfeel is smooth as butter, though different than the stock cream ale smoothness.

Overall, while I don't necessarily agree with the "cream ale" status, it's an irrelevant issue considering this is delicious.
