How can this already taste faded with a best by date of Jan. 2013? :S

Bright saturated orange, tons of lacing all around the glass, pillowy head of offwhite foam. Bright clarity, saturated color, looks nice.

Smells floral with some caramel malt sweetness. Not a pungent or fresh impression, somewhat acrid with tangible rawness.

Taste is plenty bitter, but lacking much nuance or hop flavors. Some maltiness, aspirin bitterness, green grass, and a slight alcohol note. Dry bitter aspirin finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall seems pretty one-note and bitter without much to balance. Freshness/stability is in question though, it just arrived in the market weeks ago.

On tap at the Geneva Ale House - Geneva, IL

Poured into a shaker glass, hazy, tangerine colored ale, fluffy off-white head, good retention, good lace. Aromas are floral hop, fruity, citrusy, grapefruit, lemon, bready malt in the background. Tastes are fruity grapefruit, pine, faint caramel, biscuity malt, brown bread crust, finishes pine resiny and dry with a hint of white pepper on the end. Balance is on the hoppier side, but still enough malt to back it up. Mouth-feel is sharp, tingly, medium bodied, and creamy. Overall, very good interpretation of the style. This is a new brewery to me, so I look forward to trying their others soon.

A - Light amber, high carbonation, nice tall and frothy white head. Lots of lacing.

S - Lots of sweet caramel malt with a hint of citrus.

T - Whoa, that is a sweet IPA, too much residual sugar. Sweet malt dominates the flavor with the hop bitterness taking a back seat. End with a bitter bite, but the hops are a bit hidden behind all the sweetness.

M - Moderate body, a bit syrupy, would like some more crispness...feels more like a DIPA.

O - It's alright, a lot like their Sweet Action with more hops in the boil. Won't be searching this one out.

Poured from the can a lightly hazy orange-gold with 2 fingers of sticky white head.

Juicy aroma of orange and fresh-cut grass.

The taste duplicates the aroma perfectly. A light malty note comes in at the finish.

Medium bodied and slightly dry with a lighter carbonation.

I love this IPA from Sixpoint. A hop lovers beer.

Pours a slightly hazy gold. Citrusy aroma. Flowery and peppery hoppiness, followed by a crisp maltines and minerals. Peppery, grassy hops lead to a crisp finish with moderate, if not curiously funky bitterness. Quite drinkable, despite the funky bitterness.
