Notes/Commercial Description:
Every year, the main-hops featured in the Autumnation Ale is chosen by Sixpoint fans. This year's hops is Mosaic, a relatively new strain with huge potential. Copper in color, the Autumnation Ale clocks in at 6.7 %abv. The initial assertive but pleasant 74 IBU-bitterness is carried by a well-balanced malt backbone, accompanied by citrus, berry-like and pine flavors. The massive aroma of fresh hops features citrus, strawberry, stonefruit, berry and piney notes.

74 IBU

I'm not sure what to make of this one. I mean I love the old version, and I think this one is excellent.
A clear, copper fluid that matches the can and is crowned with a rocky head that signs a lease for the term of the glass. Chunks of lace all the way down. Smell is lovely with a bright hoppy spiciness. Caramel malts and a solid breadiness that invokes a touch of seasonal pie like sweetness. This is enhanced with a healthy fruitiness from the yeast. Hops also add a pine and earth scent that invokes the aroma of leaf piles in front of your house. Taste is warming in its bread and malt core while showcasing the wet hops that strike a middle between English earth and west coast
pine with tails of citrus. A great wet hop grassiness that gives the beer a fresh flavor. Feel is exemplary . On the full side of medium weight with a smooth and mildly creamy carbonation. Drinkability is top notch as this hoppy fall amber ale begs to stroke your throat with its seductive swallow. This is an excellent redux of the old version. I just wonder if it was necessary as the prior brought a unique combination to the usual fall season offerings. It was not a slice of autumn pie. It was favorite alternative to Smutty when I wanted "Fall" in may glass. Now, as good as this is, it could be seen as just a very well done Fall IPA. Still love it……...

3.56/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Tawny golden beer that is slightly transparent...verging on opaque. Foamy white head that does not easily dissipate.. Smell is a fruit/pine hoppy mix..this def smells like pale ale. I smell orange and spice which may be stronger when poured fresh. Taste is full bodied pale ale..bitter opening to a light pleasant orangey sweetness toward the end..definitely bitter orange. Mouthfeel is pretty thick for a pale ale. Overall, not bad, but I want more sweetness out of a beer that smells the way this one does. It's almost like a hybrid witbier/pale ale when I wish the witbier aspect I notice to shine through more..(I don't detect wheat so much, but some May know what I mean here)
