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.

This is a very good IPA. Reminds me of a local favorite (Madtree's Psychopathy), but a bit sweeter and perhaps a bit more "drinkable." Top notch!

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.

12 oz can poured into shaker pint

A: Light Amber color nice fluffy head dissipates to a small film good retention on the glass nice lacing as you proceed to the bottom

S: Resiny very biscuity malts too a little sweetness too

T: Very subtly hops a little resin a little floral/herbal than sweet malts that level out the hops in the end making for a very balanced finish

M: Medium bodied not too clingy did not notice palate fatigue

O: This is a pretty damn well balanced IPA is it earth shattering no probably not but I drank 7 of these back to back with almost no palate fatigue that is impressive in of its self. You really can't go wrong if you are out in an area with a shitty selection you will be fairly pleased. I like this MUCH better than the ubiquitous Lagunitas IPA.

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)!
