3/5 rDev -23.7%
Pour was a deep gold, tinged with amber. Moderate head. Hopping was appropriately up-front with a slight herbal character. Firm through the middle, fading toward the finish. Some crackery note in the malt. Hopping was adequate, but lacking in aromatic character - just there for the bittering. The abv at 7% was well integrated into the flavor, with no heat and just a touch of pepper.

West Sixth IPA on tap at the brewpub in Lexington.
Medium amber; very slight haze; durable off-white head; very good lacing.
Nicely crafted IPA, with enough malt load to keep the ample quadruple hop load from producing too much bitterness. Liked this more as I drank more -- a quality many IPAs lack.
Smooth, medium body with well-chosen carbonation.

12 ounce can poured into a pint glass.
A - Pours out a nice pale amber color with a thick, long lasting foamy head.
S - An explosion of citrus hops that does not fade as you drink the beer. There is also some hint of pine as well as malt.
T - The citrus hops dominate and give way to a bread like malt finish with just a hint of pine.
M - Very well carbonated with a very rich mouth feel.
O - My first West Sixth experience and certainly not my last. If you like a very well hopped IPA with a kick this one is certainly worth a try.

4.2/5 rDev +6.9%
pours a hazy caramel hue that produces a healthy 3-finger head.
smells of Floral notes that are a bit overpowered by sweet malts... caramel & light molasses
taste is much like the nose: floral, orange, sweet malts with a nice bitter hop note that lingers on the end.
medium to full body that is quite thick for an ipa.
I live in Lexington where this is brewed, so I almost always get a fresh sixer when I pick this up. when you open the can, the beer just releases out of the opening as if it's begging to be drank. Gotta love fresh IPA! I keep a few cans of this in my fridge at all times. Btw, my wife loves it too... huge plus (or is it? she drinks as much of these as I do)!

Poured from the can a cloudy amber, with a huge head of off-white bubbles. Beautiful crown of lace.
Aroma is pine and citrus hops. Nice and pretty well stylistically accurate and agreeable.
Taste is sharp and sweet up front, with a bitter hoppy finish. A tasty and very enjoyable IPA, not really a standout example, but certainly worthy of a try for anyone into American-style IPAs.
