Used to live down the street from Sixpoint Brewery in Red Hook. I'm in California now, not exactly a beer desert, but I do miss these guys.

About the most delicious beer I've ever had. Smells like fresh hops. Of course it tastes super hoppy but it's balanced by its nice maltiness.

Pretty much perfect...except I can't get it in California!

I got this can from a BIF trade. Poured into a snifter.

Aroma- Pine with slight citrus, grapefruit. Pretty light aroma when it settles down but very pleasant.

Appearance- Nice hazy burnt orange. Slightly off white, small head with some sticky legs of lacing.

Flavor- Pretty big pine, citrus plays in the background. I taste the alcohol but its not overpowering, just noticeable. Hop forward beer but the malt lays down a lot of sweetness to almost balance it.

Mouthfeel- Sticky, coating after each drink. Seemed light on the front but the sugars come out. It has a nice bitterness in the middle but it seems to drop off pretty quickly, not a lingering bitterness.

Overall- Very tasty. I like the big flavor, wish the alcohol was a bit more hidden but it is 9.1% so its expected and not unwanted totally. This is a nice slow sipper that I would love to come across again.
