A - Light golden ale with a huge thick head that stays there for several minutes. Lots of lacing.

S - Caramel malt and light pine from the fresh hops they dry hop with

T - Sweet, light caramel, grain, a light fresh pine taste as well. Doesnt taste super hoppy or complex but its smooth and easy to drink for 9.1%. Really dont taste much alcohol at all.

M - Medium-Full body. Really nice and smooth. Milk carbonation

O - A really smooth, fresh hop, easy to drink, light Double IPA.

Date on can says best before April 27 2014. Not so fresh, but a beer given to me from someone I know who was on a trip traveling in a state that carries Sixpoint beers (Score!)

A - Hazy bright golden when held to the light with lively carbonation and decent two finger white head. Leaves nice lovely lacing.

S - Dank Pine, caramel malt, tobacco, sweetness.

T - Sweet and bready, followed by a light piney bitterness that lingers.

M - Medium body and with a nice smooth body to it. Nice amount of carbonation that seems to keep the flavors moving across you palate correctly.

O - A really enjoyable double IPA that really is easy to drink for being over 9%. Wonder what it would taste like fresh, however the beer is really enjoyable. It goes down almost to easy, with no sign of alcohol. Another must try for IPA lovers, and I promise you will not be disappointed, cheers!

Pours a dense light orange with a swiftly rising, mildly off white head. Looks sticky and it is. It leaves tons of lace on the glass and has nice legs too.
Smells like rich caramel with nice hints of citrus. This is hop dominant but the malts really balance it out well. It's dense on the tongue and the hops present well at first, then the malt sweetness finishes it off. The rich creaminess allows it to linger and it has a very nice carbonation level.
I really hope this is a year round brew as I could see this as a go to beer.
