On tap at ChurchKey poured into a sampler glass. Was not sure which Spice of Life hopped version this beer was, but am guessing it is the popular Cascade hopped version. Pours a cloudy orange amber color with a white foam head. Aroma of pine, caramel, some citrus, and some earthiness. Light, sweet caramel taste with a generous hop spice. Dry light body. Decent but bitter and hoppy session ale. Will not seek this again.

Draft at the Blue Monkey in Merchantville, NJ.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color that's completely opaque with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring.  Minimal lacing.  

Floral hop aroma with dome earthy, grassy notes and faint citrus fruit.  Pine needle with some orange peel and mango.  Strong malt backbone with some caramel and biscuit.

Chewy mouthfeel with a blast of dry, sticky hops that linger over the sweet malt backbone into a bone dry finish.  Bitter with a strong earthy pine presence that dominates the flavor.  Faint citrus notes with a malt backbone that's stronger than I prefer. Hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit but this beer is kind of a one dimensional hop bomb.

Tap at Arsmby Abbey

Big fluffy head 1.5 finger fades slowly with lacing, very hazy golden orange peach color.

Nose comes with light floral hops, light spicy hops and hint of citrus and fruit, some sweet malts.

Taste is semi sweet nice malty flavor, then big hops, spicy bitter almost resinous hops, light floral and citrus hops hint of orange rind. Chewy hops, nice cascade floral hop flavor. Finishes dry with a long bitter fruity hop finish.

Moth is med bodied, decent carb.

Overall nice hops maybe slightly too biter, nice malt balance.

On tap at the Armsby Abbey.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a slightly hazy orange hue with a creamy two finger head that left thick side lacing.

S - Super light hop aromas. Gentle floral hops with some light bitterness. Rather light on the nose.

T - More pronounced taste. Nice floral slightly bitter (grapefruit) hops with a sweet malt backbone. Not bad

M - Nice lighter carbonation on this one. Good slightly juicy finish.

O - Overall I really enjoyed this beer. While its good it isn't my favorite in the sixpoint spice of life series.

got to sample this one on-tap it is a rotating offering the first one i had was the chinook but i missed the amarillo one but glad i could try the cascade ok lets try it

poured with a hazy gold it looked like there was some yeast in there it had a nice two inch head of even tight foam

wow just incredible aroma really strong pine and citrus thing going on i think i detect some fresh bread underneath too

taste is outstanding by far one of my favorite ipas i had all year why can't they make this beer year-round i wish they would!

tight mouthfeel actually medium to lighter just a hint of some dextrin in there i would say not too thick at all

overall an exceptional beer and easily my favorite installment of the series definitely look for this one in your neighborhood if you can find it
