4/5 rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.
Appearance: medium orange hue with light to moderate haze and an active effervescence. Head poured a thick finger of frothy ivory foam and leaves a bit of creamy lace as it dissipates. Quite nice!
Smell: slightly toasty dry malt aroma with earthy hops and plenty of yeasty character. There's also a hint of spiciness here I like. Frankly, it's pretty good!
Taste: dryish, toasty malt with lots of earthy hop flavor and a pretty strong bitterness. A little caramel sweetness comes through around the edges, but this is merely a highlight. I find myself really liking this beer.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent level of carbonation and a pretty nice creaminess. I like it.
Overall: I didn't know what to expect here, but I think this is quite a successful representation of the style. In addition to that, it's a pretty tasty and satisfying beer in its own right. Good stuff!

3.41/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: AWESOME! Beautiful copper finish, crystal clear. Good head retention and nice lacing
Smell: Good hoppy aroma. Nothing outrageously great about it - maybe a slight undertone of vanilla
Taste: Good, but not grabbing me. Definitely has some pale ale hoppiness to it, but nothing that is really grabbing me
Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy, but I'm left with some bitterness that takes away from it
Overall: Looks better than it tastes. I bought a six pack of cans for taking to the golf course or drinking on the riding mower while cutting my grass. More than good enough for that (better than the typical Yuengling or Heineken you find in cans), but I think I'd rather buy Six Point in cans for that for now on.
