Never tried Sixpoint? You're in for a real treat. Here's a quick overview of their offering:

The Crisp Pils
5.4% ABV
45 IBU
A Pilsner that lives up to it's name! Brewed with noble hops for indelible sehr crisp flavor. Light bodied, medium-high carbonation, dry finish, clean malt character, with just a touch of bitterness and citrus on the finish.

Bengali IPA
6.5% ABV
69 IBU
Blaze orange in color, with an abundance of citrus hop bitterness, and a full pine and grapefruit bouquet in the aroma. Lighter in body with a more nuanced hop character that plays on the palate without a lingering bitterness on the finish.

Resin IIPA
9.1% ABV
103 IBU
A beer that celebrates the extraction of hop resin for a concentrated yet balanced brew. A double IPA that balances a big resinous hop character with an accentuated malt bill to create an insanely sessionable IIPA. Big notes of grapefruit and pine on the nose, juicy hop flavor, and a mild lingering bitterness on the finish.

Sweet Action Ale
5.2% ABV
34 IBU
In true Mad Scientist fashion a hybrid style that's difficult to define. Part pale, part wheat, part cream ale - a medium full bodied pale ale with a slight wheat character, big juicy fruity hops, and a smooth mouthfeel and a dry finish - all sweet action.

Sesher (Session IPA)
5.3% ABV
50 IBU
A session IPA that has a huge hop aroma featuring Galaxy and Equinox hops - a lot of citrus and tropical fruits.

Beast Mode (American Porter)
6.4% ABV
44 IBU
Hoppy American Porter - subtle roast character, some coffee and chocolate, with a distinct bitterness and a dry finish.

Goat Mutorcs (Porter w/ Brown Sugar, Ginger, Serrano Peppers and a tincture of Madagascar Vanilla Beans, Cinnamon, Black & Pink Peppercorns, Allspice)
6% ABV
35 IBU
Heavily spiced porter - earthy with a roasted malt flavor. Cinnamon aroma w/ slight vanilla and very light hop aroma.

Brownstone Renovation (American Brown Ale aged w/ Cherries in Red Wine Barrels)
9.4% ABV
This beer taste nothing like brownstone and is a super funk bomb! Funkalicious, heavy brett nose with a slight acidity. The cherries come through very faintly.

C.R.E.A.M. (Blonde Ale with Coffee)
7.2% ABV
25 IBU
The C.R.E.A.M. is brewed with a blend of pilsner and two-row pale and crystal malts, and stored cool for an extended period of time, and blended with cold-brewed coffee from Stumptown Coffee Roasters. The result is a golden blonde ale with the unmistakeable aroma of Finca El Injerto.
