The can ring holds the six cans firm and you need a little effort to release them. Nice white head that holds up , the color a deep copper to orange. Smell is citrus with a hint of earthiness. Taste is hoppy, up front with citrus and pine, my preferred IPA combination. Finish is bitter but not overbearing in this medium bodied brew. Solid American IPA along the lines of many out there now. I would buy this one again and will try some other West Sixth now.

Appearance- deep, dark golden with a wonderful head out of the can , perfectly carbonated for a pint glass.
Nose- this brew gets it right from the start. Take a whiff- Bam!! Floral notes. Citrus. Pine (my favorite). I mean it smells like you just finished with the chainsaw! Outstanding, robust, in-your-face hops. Love it.
Taste- absolutely everything is there. The archetype of what I want in an IPA: solid backbone but not sweet or overpowering malt. I assume there is some medium crystal barley but nothing too dark. Certainly no biscuit or anything that doesn't belong in a great ipa. Hops. Serious hops. I would like to know the schedule on this one but seems a great deal of early hop additions as the bitter note is prominent. Finishes with some light citrus notes and slightly zesty.
Mouthfeel- just about perfect.
Overall- I really don't know what to say other than perfect . Absolutely nailed it , West Sixth. Although I haven't tried everything, I've spent a great deal of time on IPAs since I became sold on craft beer, and this on has it all. It should hold its own against anything out there. If you're a hop head then you will crave it. Fan-freaking-tastic!
