A: A yellow hue, a little bit of transparency but a bit cloudy as well, a nice white head at the top that leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass as you drink.

S: Strong hop notes right off the bat, a good amount of fresh fruit and a little bit of sweetness not sure from what, maybe brown sugar.

T: Almost exactly like the nose with a good balance of malts and hops, there is a slight hint of white wine taste, the orange flavor is very present as well.

M: Medium bodied, with a good amount of carbonation, and a little sticky.

O: Overall a good brew from Sixpoint, very subtle, nothing spectacular but a good tasting IPA.

This beer is one that, despite being a bright, deep, shining gold, is almost entirely opaque, displaying thickness in the body. The pour from the tap brings up an extremely creamy not-quite-white head that drops very, very slowly, developing crags and crannies as it does. A web of sticky lacing is left before diminishing (the term is used lightly) to heavy patching.
The nose is light, with a little fruit, spiciness, and a floral quality.
In the taste, though, this beer is packed. It's spicy and juicy, so extremely citrusy but with something like papaya bursting on the tongue. It's bready with a pale malts balance but nicely hopped. It's not as hop-forward as IPAs are these days, but the hops are in charge.
The feel is crisp and smooth in even measure, with both bite and creamy flow. The body is medium, very clean, and it has a certain brightness to it as well. There are layers to the depth of this beer.
