Very Good
Notes: Idaho 7 from Nate Jackson at Jackson Farms. El Dorado from Graham Gamache at Cornerstone Ranches. Amarillo from the Riehl’s at Double R Ranches. Galaxy from down under. These hops combine for a huge blast of complex hop character with juicy tropical notes, some candylike sweet aromas, stone fruit, and grapefruit. The aroma flies out of the glass.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a pillowy white head that settled into a light cap with some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is sweet. Notes of melon and tropical fruit. There is a bit of a dank savory scent as well. Seems out of place.

The taste is of light melon, grapefruit rind and pineapple. There are also some onion and pine flavors which seem to clash with the fruity hops.

The feel is moderate on the palate with fizzy carbonation. Starts sweet on the palate but transitions to bitter in the finish.

The hop profile seems to be a cross between a NE IPA and old school east coast IPA. I think it clashes a bit but still a good beer.

Pours a hazy light amber with a 2 inch foamy white head, which lasts. Heavy lacing to the end.

Tangerine dominates the aroma. Also, grapefruit, floral.

Taste is tangerine zest, grapefruit, pine.

Medium bodied, light carbonation. Dry, tangy finish.

This is a very good beer.

A nice easy drinking NEIPA that was full of citrus flavors with enough malt backbone to be balanced while also being crisp and crushable. A solid middle of the road IPA that was perfect on the golf course.

12 ounce can into IPA glass, canned on 8/8/2020, best before 2/4/2021. Pours very hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense an fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing and moderate streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas and flavors of big tangerine, white grapefruit, apricot, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, citrus peel/rind, wood, pepper, pine, wheat, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium body; creamy/bready wheat, some sticky and resinous hops in the mouthfeel. Moderate increasing resin dryness, no hop astringency. Minimal warming 6.2% or lingering hop burn. Great hop lineup in the commercial description, great softness, spot on for the style. Glad I had more. Need to keep this brewery on my radar.

From the skinny 12 oz can in a snifter. This SOLID brew pours
a hazed dirty orange juice color with a nice head of white foam
that settles to a thick ring, fat clumping layer, and sports some excellent
lacing. Nose of pineapple, mango, herbal hops, and light pine with
honey and caramel malts. Flavors follow the nose with pineapple, pine,
mango, a bit of lemon zest, herbal hops, and balanced honey sweet
malts. Nice mouth feel; medium body, medium light carbonation,
smooth as can be (oats), and a nice bitter hop / citrus
finish that is nicely balanced with sweet malts.

Overall----Excellence from an excellent brewery!

Looks the part, but pretty basic in taste and feel. If you're not standing out in the NEIPA category, you're pretty much a skip for me.

12 oz. Slim Red Can 6.2%ABV.

A: Two fingers of white bubbly head sits atop a cloudy/thick dark peach colored liquid. Little retention with some nice sticky lacing.

S: Juicy Fruits of tropical and floral aromas. Some pine and sweeter notes. Pretty nice.

T/M: Juicy. Plenty of different hop flavors. Each sip seems different. Has a nice balance of sweet and bitter. Mango and grapefruit. Some spices. Smooth and a little thin. medium bodied. Has a fruity bitter finish with a funky aftertaste.

O: Nice flavorful IPA. Easy to drink. Maybe a little on the basic side of things and lighter for a NE IPA. Weird aftertaste for me, but very drinkable.

Hazy yellow with a swirling carbonation feeding a thick pillow of foam. Floral and a little lemony and orangey on the nose. Soft floral hop profile in the taste with a nice balance of earthy bitterness in the back end. That balances the sweetness of the citrus flavors, which are reminiscent of tangerine and a touch of lemon. Some grapefruit provides a slight tang too. The mouth feel is lively enough to add an extra element, providing an overall experience that is interesting. Fits in nicely with this new and pervasive style, even if it doesn't necessarily stand out on its own as something unique.

Really, big, sturdy head, that eventually recedes to show delicate sticky lace. Big citrus and tropical fruit in the nose. All is going according to plan. Really nice cloudy lemon custard color. Really big citrus based blast initially in the flavor, with lemon and grapefruit pulp notes. The finish and texture are surprisingly clean and tidy, even for a brewer I think highly of. The bitterness is maybe a little low for the style but it still feels like a good fit overall. Another nice effort from Sixpoint.

Juicy dry and flavorful, this brew enshrines a wonderful balance of high hop flavors with surprisingly low bitterness. Gorgeous he's and lacing. Wonderful fruity nose. Malt is pilsner like. Hops are a collection of tropical fruits and a mild citrus. Active carbonation that is somewhat effervescent. Quenching and smooth drinking. A great NEIPA.

Pours a hazy apricot yellow with a white head. Decent retention and nice lacing. Aroma is melon and tropical fruit. Flavor follows the nose with a little hop bite in the finish. Feel is creamy, medium bodied with enough carbonation. Overall a very tasty beer.

Cloudy gold on the pour with thick cream color head and rings of lace. Aroma is pleasantly hoppy and bready. Taste is fresh hops with slight bitterness, followed by malts and citrus. The finish is dry and balanced. I like this one a lot, right up there with the fantastic NEIPAs I have had this summer.

Canned on 8/8/20. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy yellowish golden; creamy and fluffy white head that falls slowly leaving great thick retention and sticky frothy lacing. The aromas are floral along with some citrus and tropical notes. Some crackers. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. More floral notes. Some lemon and orange. Hints of peach and apricot in the mix. Some fresh grass. It's not that sweet. Low to no bitterness. Solid hop flavors. Malts do their thing without dominating. Finishes juicy and dry at the same time. It's pretty clean and dry for the style. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's sharp, crisp, slightly fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a nice New England IPA. It's extremely clean, crisp and refreshing. The craftsmanship is impressive and really takes this one to the next level. It's very enjoyable and fun to drink. Well done.

Look - poured into a pint glass. Cloudy lemon yellow, two finger head and plenty of lacing retention.
Smell - a mixed bag of various hoppy notes: tropical fruits, floral notes, as well as some dank. the smell here falls in the middle of the hops triplot, balancing the different characteristics of hoppiness.
Taste - all the hops without the bitterness (at only 5 IBU). the initial taste almost feels like a tea, with a smooth and slightly malty and dry finish. in between, you get a good bit of hoppy flavor, but not the bite towards the end.
Feel - medium bodied, average carbonation, and average ABV at 6.2%.
Overall - this was an interesting beer. low IBU hoppy beers always intrigue me, but it always feels like there's just something missing. the beer is juicy and has a lot of flavor and should be well liked by many because of that, but for me, i prefer something that includes the whole package.
