Beautiful color. Great aroma. Toasty caramel malt backbone over shadows the heavy heaping of mandarin, lemon and piney hops. The medium-plus bitterness helps to balance the line between the malt and hops, but the hops just aren't allowed to shine. Very dry and resinous finish.

Poured from 12oz can into Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned on 15th October, 2017.

L: Slight hop haze, bright bronze, two finger off-white head has very good retention.

S: Smells of citrus and herbal hops.

T: Again, citrus and herbal hops with a touch of tropical fruit. Simple, refreshing, clean and nice.

F: Light, crisp, clean finish.

O: Quite a nice beer.

12oz can into a pint glass. canned 6/17/17, so 5 months old.

murky marmalade body, decent white head which dissipates to a covering and a ring. leaves good lacing though.

odd aroma, not unpleasant, but cant put my finger on what it is.

hops have mostly faded, so the strong malt background is prevalent.

medium on the mouth, bittersweet finish. leaves a burn in the throat.

overall, as faded hop ipas go, this one is not an unpleasant drink. I'd like to review fresher sixpoint brews, but seems like in NE/Central PA. most of the beers i encounter are at least 3 months old.
