    I was out looking for canned beers. I do love the cans. And this one had a solidarity fist. Sure, I pick a book by its cover. Had to try it. Pours hazy pumpkin orange with a thin beige cap quickly reduced to a thin layer of runny lace. Scents include molasses, lemon, and raisin; it's quite sweet. The flavor, however, is more bitter than sweet relative to the aroma, however balanced with molasses. There's some pine, some yeast, some lingering citrus oil: here's where the IPA shows up. It seems pretty big and weighty, a little sticky and fizzy, good fine carbonation. This beer wants some good buffalo wings.

    Malty aroma has a decided rye overtone and hints of hops and yeast. It comes out of the growler a clear chestnut with a fine-bubbled creamy wheat head. Rye dominates the sharp, crisp flavor, which has green wood and malty notes and subtle caramel and nutty hints. Smooth texture has just a little fizz and leaves a rather bitter green wood finish. OK, not Sixpoint's best, but maybe this was not their best batch.

    Pours a dark redish brown with a frothy tan head. Smell is rye, malt, some citrus hop, and a hint of yeast. Taste is mostly the malt and rye with the hops and bitterness come in at the end. The aftertaste has the bitterness, and rye. The mouthfeel is medium, a nice consistency and balance. Smooth and easy to drink. Overall a good beer thats worth checking out.

    Picked this one up at WOB. A murky brown-amber colored beer with a two finger fiamy textured, off white head ising above. There's some good hang time on the head. Settles into a nice film and lacing. The nose is light, floral. The tasting nice piney and caramel. Still trying to get WOB to serve up these ales at room temperatire. They get better at that more comfortable temps.

    this was a nice, hoppy brew, but didn't have nearly as much uniqueness or rye influence as i expected. Pretty nice, though, as a functional ipa (better than their standard ipa easily).

    Ladies and Gentlemen
    We’re gonna ask you for some fanfare...the band fanfare because...ladies and gentlemen...sting has always gone ahead of itself.
    They have done it again and again and again.
    I remember the year they brought in the fat boys they were hotter then ten thousand fire sides.
    And if you know...and if you enjoy craft beer...if you want one of the coldest brewskiz out of
    North America...a brewery that gave you a biers like
    Juicy Resin...
    You hear a crew in Jamaica with something that goes like this
    "Who the heck is this
    Paging me in the morning
    At the crack of dawning"
    Please welcome...for the first time...in Sting 96...Please welcome
    The Notorious....the Notorious...

    Super solid brew from Sixpoint. Clear copper colour, pretty well carbonated for a can. Nose has that noticeable rye aroma, subtle hops and floral scents. Flavors are fruity, tropical and piney with decent nutty characteristic to it. Hops are full and firm.

    The version I sampled at the TAp Ny event was marketed as a Belgian Rye. It is definitely not for the faint at heart because this rye beer is very hoppy. I felt at times that is was very difficult to discern any other aromas and flavors except for the hops. A golden colored medium bodied ale that had a bit of a white head. A delicious nouveau Belgian style of beer with lots of hops.

    Poured a hazy, reddish amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye, citrus fruits, floral hops, nuts, and toffee malts. Taste of much of the same, rye, toffee, nuts, with faint alcohol, but a bit of metallic hops in the finish. Chewy mouthfeel.
