Cloudy orange pour with 1.5 finger of light tan head. Laces very well, with a heavy sheet down the backside of the glass. Nice lace rings on the front. Thin head retention.
Nose is biscuit malt balanced against mango and tropical hops. Light citrus under that. The fruit plays well with the biscuit.
Some mango sweetness creeps in at the finish, but otherwise there is just a bit of biscuit malt to balance against this. Fairly dry after the mango dissipates. ABV well hidden.
Feel is about right, but could tend to be a bit thicker against the biscuit presence.
Overall, a decent drinking IPA that I would get again.

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.

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.
