A- Pours a nice golden color with a good 1" white head that leaves excellent lacing

S- Great mixture of citrus and piney hops that give me high hopes for the taste

T- Really good but a little watered down. Definitely get the hoppy background beer but it finishes quite light on the taste and could be much better than it is

M- Light as you'd expect but perhaps too much so

O- Great beer but doesn't quite meet its potential

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.

Poured into a becker.

Pours a massive pale yellow-white head that is creamy and sticky. Tons of lace clinging to the side of the glass. The brew is a clear golden orange color.

Smells of Piney, resinous, earthy, citrus hops and some malt sweetness.

Nice, even hop presence that is complex - earthy, piney, resinous, citrus fruit and a measure of maltiness that keeps everything in check a bit. Milder than I thought it would be, but very good.

Medium, crisp, with descent carbonation.

First go around with Sixpoint and not disappointed. I thought this would have been a bit bigger, but wow I could really get into this one. I'm glad to have 3 more left. Highly drinkable from a hophead perspective anyway.
