Clear golden amber appearance with a one finger white head that leaves a copious amount of lacing. Smell is somewhat muted - I get mostly bready malt with hints of grass and pine. Very crisp and dry with caramel malt and resiny pine. There is a nice balance here to keep the bitterness from going to far - well made beer for sure. Nice feel to it too with perfect carbonation. Sixpoint has done a nice job with the beer - highly recommended.

crystal, copper color. Hints of floral and pine. Grapefruit at the start that leads into a little caramel. Hoppier than I thought this would, overall very drinkable. Another good brew from Sixpoint.

Stickee tofee and bread pudding meet too create a hoppy and malty ale. It's hard to classify. Maybe there is some rye used as well which adds some spice and some delayed heat on the back of he throat. It fakes you out like it is going to finish clean, then there is tons of sticky resin. They've created a monster that puts you in the holiday spirit!

A: [5.00] Copper/caramel color boor. Forms a nice 1 1/2 finger head that is dense and seems to stick around. It is also sticky and coats the glass with excellent lacing. The can is great - it lists the IBU (70) the ABV (7.0%) the best by date (4/23/15) and for a bonus the SRM (color) of (17) which puts it in the dark lager color range. Kudos to making me an informed consumer!!

S: [3.75] Really nice hop forward smell. A piney/resiny scent comes through on the nose. It is not subtle - a pretty bold smell.

T: [3.50] I get a bit of a metallic taste up front (this went away after a few sips). Then some hop bittering in the middle and finish. There is definitely a lingering hop bitterness on the palate. Not a lot of sweetness anywhere. This presents like a dry wine.

M: [3.75] The mouthfeel is a bit sticky and resiny. The carbonation level is right on. The hop finish adds a bit of dryness.

O: [3.75] The nose on this one is great. The mouthfeel is really nice for the style. The taste is a little one dimensional. I was looking for a little malt to balance the hops somewhere. It is enjoyable but there are IPAs that are a bit more multidimentional (bringing flowers or fruit etc.).
