Minor head over a heavily hazed copper orange burst. Deliciously citrusy hops on the nose. Bitter herbal hops with an orange citrus zing from start to finish. Mouth is medium, but just barely, and the carbonation is just right. I don't know that there's anything Sixpoint doesn't get right. I am such a big fan!

Had this on cask in Patchogue, NY. It poured a dark, cloudy amber color with a nice creamy white head. The aroma was a mixture of fruit and hops. A sweet smell, but not overpowering.

This is a very smooth IPA. There are big hops to be found, and it's the overwhelming flavor, but never overpowering. There are hints of dark fruit and maybe even wood. The mouthfeel is excellent and this is a very drinkable ale. A highly enjoyable India pale ale by Sixpoint.

A: Great looking beer. A brighter color of orange than most IPAs, although it might have been because I was outside in the setting sun.

S: Citrus, pines

T: Fruity, hoppy, bitter but well-balanced.

M: Finished great, pretty smooth for an IPA.

O: Very solid IPA. Order it almost every time at my local bar.

Got a chance to try this a couple of times up in BKNY last weekend. Golden orange pour, looks nice, cloudy.. Smells slightly of hops, some yeasty esters too, floral and grassy, a little bit of pine. Little bit of malt here too. It tastes dry, with solid bitterness but not enough hop flavor to satiate. Just a bit of floral esters along with some pine and spice as well as a healthy malt presence battling with the hop bitterness. It's okay, but with so many other things to try, I wasn't going back for more.

On tap at Redbones.

Slightly hazy orange color with a fine, tight white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Very pretty.

Pronounced aromatic hop aroma - herbal and piney. Hop-centric flavor too. The malt provides some body and a hint of sweetness but seems to be designed to support and not overshadow the hops. Big piney hop flavor with a bit of citrus on the edges.

Round, juicy with a mouthcoating hoppiness. Pleasant lingering bitterness with a dry finish.

Great with barbeque - the hops don't get lost in all the great sauces at Redbones and the beer seems to cleanse the pallet with each sip. A great drinking IPA.
