Poured from 12 oz can into brewery labeled snifter. Served from beer fridge at approx 50 degrees.

A: Hazy orange, almost amber with a bit of head that nearly reaches the top of the snifter

S: For me this smells like an ideal IPA(imperial or otherwise). Very citrusy and a bit of pine. I will note that this is relatively fresh, canned 2 weeks ago.

T: Very smooth and fruity. A little bit of bitter comes through at the end but that's what is supposed to happen. Not harsh in the slightest bit.

M: I would say this is a little heavier than medium and would also argue that it has a thicker mouthfeel than most IPAs that I have been lucky enough to try.

O: A very well done beer from Sixpoint brewing. Admittedly I am not a huge fan of some of their other beer but this one is deserving of being tried by the most discerning of hopheads. Slim can is easy to find space for in the fridge also

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows big resinous hoppy notes along with pine, lychee, passion fruit and floral hops. Big sweet clean malt too.
Very similar flavours. Perhaps not as much malt as I'd expect, comes off overly sharp and astringently bitter. Lovely hop characters though with big pine and tropical fruit notes.
Carbonation seems just a little high.
