Sixpoint ‘Spice of Life’ Series

I recently got to try the first in a monthly series of single-hop IPAs from Sixpoint, called Spice of Life.  July was the first of 12 hops/months, Chinook.  I remember Chinook being my favorite of Mikkeller‘s single-hop IPAs, but as expected I liked Sixpoint’s a lot more.  In fact, I loved it.  It reminded me of the Bengali Tiger in balance and flavor, and even ABV, but of course with only one type of hop strain.  It seems the whole series will be on tap exclusively at Franny’s, at least for Brooklyn.  Can’t wait for August’s, the Amarillo.
