delicious. im drinking this one later than most so its possible it may have can conditioned (is that even possible?), but i absolutely love this beer. forewarning; i am a sixpoint fan and regularily drink their standard line as my go to when i dont feel like making decisions. that said, i still think this is a solid beer that really shows that ambers can be creative too.

Canned on 10/27/16. The smell was the best part of this beer. Very dank and bitter. You could taste the grapefruit peel and some hops and caramel malts, but this beer was not balanced well. Perhaps if I got a fresher 6 pack, the flavor would've been a lot better. However, it's a beer I wouldn't seek out again.

Reddish hued amber that is slightly hazy. Two fingers of head forms and leaves heavy lacing down the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, and toast. Flavor is hoppy upfront with pine and citrus but the malt balances out the flavor with caramel that makes this a red ale. Nice body and carbonation compliments the flavors well.

From a 12oz can, drink-by date of Feb 2017. Did not pour, so can't comment on the color. Smell and taste match. Taste is citrusy and piney -- don't quite sense the red ale/amber aspect. Still, it's refreshing. Alcohol well hidden. Would definitely buy again.

Can't say I agree with the name, however. It's very difficult to discern what Sixpoint beers are attempting from the can exterior. Grabbed this in a mix-a-6 and assumed (it being January) it was something more seasonal. Or maybe that the alcohol taste was prevalent. Neither. Go figure.

12 ounce can pours a nice amber beer of piney hops. I thought it was @winter warmer" but this is a straight up IPA. It is 7 ABV so quaffable. Nice beer but perhaps not legendary

-clear orange-Amber tap pour to glass. Foam cap persists. Aroma is muted, more malt than hops. Flavor is slightly bitter. Body is light and finish is smooth; bitterness lingers.

Pours a hazy red with a significant, foamy head. Initial aroma is malty and bready, which carries through to the taste. You get some piney hop notes on the back end, but it largely sits in your mouth with caramel, bread and malt flavors prevailing. Mouthfeel's a bit heavy and carbonated at once. It's a decent red, but perhaps it could be a bit hoppier or sweeter (rather than sitting in the middle).

This beer didn't do much for me, but then again, its not exactly my style, so it has to work a little harder to impress, you know? Appropriate amber coloration, clear, with a beige head a few fingers high. Woodsy and earthy aromas of musk and citrus followed by flavors along the same lines. Not particularly bitter or sweet - a mild ale; moderate carbonation, fairly lightweight, with a lingering aftertaste.
