Sixpoint Party Hat Review

Name: Sixpoint Party Hat 
Style: India Pale Ale (Hazy/NE Style)
ABV: 7%
IBUs: 0

The fine folks at Sixpoint have bestowed upon us another Hazy IPA called Party Hat. I guess it’s called Party Hat to indicate a good time because the label proudly totes that there is no bitterness in here in both the description and on the 0 IBUs on the label, which saves me the task of having to find it. Plus after having their excellent Meltdown, I’m eager to see how this one turns out.

Appearance – Hazy yellow color with a light amount of carbonation. The head itself is soapy but has some good retention and the lacing left behind is light.

Aroma – Citrus, orange peel, peach and mango fruitness dominate the nose along with some light pale malts. No bitterness so far!

Taste – Much like the nose, the palate consists of vibrant citrus, mango, orange peel notes along with a solid pale malt backbone. The aftertaste is a nice, but light citrus aftertaste.

True to its name, this is a beer with no bitterness to speak of. It’s bright, vibrant, juicy & just a good time overall. It’s more straightforward than Meltdown was in terms of flavor but that it’s still a great beer nevertheless. As such, this one is easy to recommend!

Sixpoint Party Hat – 8.5/10
