Sixpoint in cans!? Sign me the hell up!
Poured from a 16oz. can to a Duvel tulip.
A - hazy yet vibrantly bright orange amber with a scant 1/4 inch head on top that leaves loose yet sticky patches of lacing.
S - Crisp, citrusy, piney hops upfront with little else.
T - The first sip is HEAVY. I mean, wow...It felt like a belgain IPA when I took the first swig, with a sweet, hoppy blast that really threw me for a loop. Fortunately, after that shock to my system, subsequent sips after giving the beer a chance to breathe yield an appropriately crisp, hoppy bite with a titch of heaviness you don't normally get in a pilsener. A bit jarring and very much a challenging taste for pils fans, but good nonetheless.
M - A fair bit of medium weight on the tongue, but the heft is alleviated by the carbonation.
O - Heavier than the average pilsner, especially on the first sip. Get past that first hump and your diligence will be rewarded by a solid drinker. Not exactly the light, refreshing 'lawnmover' beer you expect from a pils, but worth trying.

3.55/5 rDev -8.7%

Poured into a tall pint glass: color is opaque gold/copper, head is bright white, presenting 1/2 inch thick then dissipating to a nice top; definitely more dense/murky than other pilsners.
Smell is light pils malts, then grassy hops, solid bitterness, light citrus and earthy notes.
Taste is crisp, definitely full of hops, though the subtle grassy flavors are prominent, some stronger citrus type flavors are noted with a strong drying, bitter finish; malt is pils and bread, subtle backbone type flavor. Earthy flavors are prominent as well.
Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonated and biting on the tongue, very drying, more so than other similar style pilsners.
Overall, this is seems to be close to a kellerbier in presentation with a heavy bitter pils take. As it warms up the flavors come through pleasantly, but the nose seems off and mouthfeel a bit overdone.
