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.

L: Poured from a can to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, pretty long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, citrus fruit, malt, and light caramel. Noticeable the moment the can is opened.

T: Tasted of a light amount of citrus fruit (grapefruit, in particular), a little bit of malt, a whole pile of bitter hops, a little caramel, some pine, and a light tropical fruit element. The hops dominate the flavor, almost to a fault. Nonetheless, this is a vibrant, likable taste.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a hoppy, bitter, dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: For the most part this is a solid beer. It has its faults, but is still drinkable.

Clear golden orange with two fingers of bone colored head. Rings of lace as the head slowly drops.
Smell is sweet malts with a good amount of fruit and pine from the hops.
Taste is piney bitterness enveloped by a blanket of rich malts. I was expecting and overly sweet ale but that is not the case. Well balanced big flavor levels.
Mouthfeel is full with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and bitter considering the hop presence.
Overall a big flavorful beer. I enjoyed this one a good deal. Well done Sixpoint!

Truly great beer. Sixpoint strikes again! Look is typical of a red ale. Nothing wrong. Smell is of delicious hops. Global warmer is a balanced beer by an underated brewery unfurtunatly.
