Global Warmer has a piney nose with a pour that is very effervescent. The beer is a reddish-orange with a small, rapidly-dissolving head. The mouth feel contains a decent amount of hops, but dissipates quickly. Subtle hints of spice can be discerned alongside a dry malt backdrop. The overall taste of Global Warmer opens up as the effort warms up; a maltier and heavier fruit presence ensures that the beer stays interesting from beginning to end. Global Warmer is a bold new style of beer that straddles the line between IPAs and winter seasonals; fans of each will be able to appreciate what Sixpoint has done here. The 7.0% alcohol percentage moderates some of the sharper hop touches, establishing a fulfilling experience from beginning to the end. In the coldest winter months, the Global Warmer will keep imbibers warm throughout the most frigid nights. Make sure to pick up a 4-pack of cans or a glass on draft.
