12 oz slim can bought from Lifesource in Salem OR $2.00 Pours a nice amber/light brown with a gorgeous thick and luscious cream coloured head. Pretty hoppy aroma on it herbal and citrus like. Brown sugar and caramel malts. Taste has the same aspects as the aroma..but slightly more resin in the hops.Some bitter coffee/toffee right at the end. Mouth feel is medium to full with medium carbonation..like the bitter aftertaste. Nice medium hopped amber

Poured from a can into a tulip

L: Semi-opaque dark golden pour. Two fingers of foamy white head. Sticky lacing. Looks delicious.

S: Fresh baked bread and resinous pine. A bit of toffee.

T/F: Somewhat doughy with a pretty bitter hop profile. Lots of herbal tones and evergreen. Floral and bitter. Not as balanced as expected... definitely tending towards a dry IPA flavor and very light on the malts for a red. Well carbonated... a bit resinous and the finish is dry and floral.

O: A solid brew from Sixpoint... not as malty as I'd expect from an Amber/Red... and this definitely tends towards the IPA side of things. Not that this is a bad thing... it's a solid beer from a great brewery. Doesn't compare to their Bengali or Resin though.

Not your typical red ale: golden amber color with beautiful lacing that gives a slight creamy mouth feel. This red ale comes across as more a balance of an IPA with a red ale. Malts, hops and IBUs are balanced. A good solid beer. SIXPOINT.
7% ABV.

A: pours cloudy orange red in glass with three fingers of cream colored foam. Heavy lacing on glass.
S: citrus first then an expectation of hops finishes well.
T: the citrus gives way to the strong hops with a tingle at the back of the mouth.
F: high carbonation that fades a bit when left to breath for a while. Finishes dry like I am still thirsty.
O: enjoyable beer but the dry finish just makes me want a glass of water.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bright citrusy hops in the nose. The taste has a nice toasted malt sweetness that balance out the hops nicely. Solid beer!

Pours a handsome orange red with a healthy finger of head with solid if not spectacular retention. Nose blasts out the citrus and pine love. Not sure if this is a red IPA...I had expected a winter warmer.

Geez, this tasts like an IPA There is late balance, but man this thing is slathered in hops. Which is fine, I love hops. I expected a little more "winter warmer" qualities but I am mistaken again. High carbonation, but fits the taste beautifully. The citrus flavors really stand out.

This is fresh tasting and delicious, but I ding it slightly for being strange in style.
