Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
If you traced from 2004, you’d see that SWEET ACTION is a representation of our palates at any given point in time… it’s a vibe more so than it was ever one distinct formulation. This version, a juicy, blonde wheat ale, is the latest iteration in that story.

Best by 5/8/15. 12oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours golden with a nice fluffy off-white head that sticks around and leaves great lacing and retention. This cream ale has alot of IPA qualities, which I didn't expect. The aromas have alot of orange and grapefruit. Citrus notes are there. Some hints of caramel malts as well. Smells nice. More hops in the flavors. More citrus and malts. Lemon and lime zest. Some fresh pine too. Some bread and toast. Some honey is the mix as well. It's bittersweet. Mouthfeel is nice. It's light, but has a solid creamy body to it. There's moderate carbonation and it's fluffy. Very refreshing.

This reminds me of a light IPA or a pale ale, not really a cream ale. But who cares, it's still a fun beer to drink and it's very enjoyable. I've been diggin' Sixpoint lately.

T: grain, grass, lemon, bread balanced very well. A dry finish, but one where spicy hops and grain notes feature promintently.
M: medium carb and a medium-light body.
O: what a great beer. I will scoop these up again the next time i spot them.
