look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Tallboy poured into a snifter

A- Pours hazy, almost murky brown with a one finger light brown/off white head.

S- Not much one the nose, a slight base malt, there is a lightly hopped citrus profile, definitely rye and herbal grass notes.

T- The nose doesn't do this beer justice. It's slightly bitter up front, follows up with a perfect balance of herbal, earthy rye notes with the citrus and bitterness from the hops. The hops are all citrus, some mango and lemon grass. There is a lot of rye in this beer and its still very clean and balanced.

M- This beer is crisp and clean and has a moderate mouth feel. Modest carbonation.

O- This is a nice rye brew. Drink out of the can because the look and nose of this beer aren't its highlights.

This was the first beer I had from Sixpoint. They just started distributing that week about 18 months ago, and I was pretty impressed then.

I poured this beer from the can into a wide tulip shaped glass. I got quite a bit of sticky foam from the pour which led to some really good lacing on the glass. The coloring is dark brown.

I smell some citrus hops, tobacco, and malt from the top. It is an interesting mix; as Sixpoint does not fall exactly into any one beer category.

The flavoring is very well balanced with minimal bitterness in the aftertaste. I get a bunch of that rye flavor and less of the hops in each sip.

This is a very good beer. It is not exactly a rye... it stands on its own.

Pours a mahogany color, fairly dense with enough light getting through to provide reddish highlights. Medium size light tan head with good retention. Patchy lacing.

Aroma is fairly mild, sweet malt/caramel malt.

Tastes good. The sour rye is predominant until the beer warms up. As the beer warms, the rye tames down to a slight bitterness and the sweet malts come to the forefront. Overall the taste is very inviting and the alcohol level appears lower than what is on the can.

Mouthfeel is fairly rich. The maltiness and bitter rye add to the overall feel.

This is a solid beer, tastes good, Goes well with food or just for slow sipping.

16 oz can. Pours dark amber with a long lasting, fluffy, off-white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, caramel and bready malt. Body is medium and smooth. Citrusy hops, rye spiciness and caramel malt combine on the palate. Finish is long and bitter. Enjoyable brew.
