Enjoyed on tap during Lehigh Valley Beer Week
A - Pours a medium orange gold color with minimal head and very little carbonation, leaves a very thin ring around the top of the glass.
S - This is the weakest category for this beer, I suspect the serving temp from the tap is masking the majority of the aroma. Passion fruit, nectarines, pineapple, and some crackery malt (but not much).
T - This beer is all about the candied tropical fruit experience. Lots of pineapple, passion fruit, nectarines, and light tropical fruit. Hoppy sweet spicy resin from beginning to end and coats the mouth before ending with a bitter citrus and pine biye on the finish to counterbalance the hoppy sweetness. Some alcohol comes through but for 11% it's not the effervescent booze bomb one would expect.
M - Thick medium body and light, prickly carbonation.
O - This is the biggest and most bold offering from Six Point that I've ever experienced. Nicely done with the hop head in mind.

3.83/5 rDev -7.3%

Poured into an IPA glass. The liquid is a nice syrupy caramel color, with a two-finger off-white, near-yellow head that fades slowly and leaves lots of lace. There are tons of beautiful tiny bubbles rising up from the bottom of the glass to add to the head. Really an exciting appearance.
Smell is lots of hops with a noticeable caramel background. From the hops, I get pineapple, resin, mint, and pine.
Taste is pine, resin, and mint up front, with the malts making themselves known mid-palate by inserting a little bit of caramelly sweetness. The malts are much more noticeable on the finish, where the syrupy sweetness almost takes over before the minty hops come back a bit.
Mouthfeel is nicely thick, with plenty of carbonation to make sure it doesn't get too syrupy.
Overall, it definitely exceeded my expectations, although my expectations were not super high because I'm not as crazy about huge IPAs as some others are. Still, this is remarkably easy-drinking and non-syrupy for as much flavor and alcohol as it packs.

The Raul man is kind of tripping on this one. Did someone spike my lil soldiers OJ and did dada just take a drink? Nah, it ain't like that, but is it?
Hmm... Unlike a girl driving a Jetta, this one is unique. It's thick, and, well, nothing IPA like. Raul is sure that this is what the townspeople drank when they thought they world was flat.
As far as the 11.1% ABV goes, this sucker is actually devilshy smooth, so I'll give it that. Taste is ok, if not what I am looking Gor...
It's not off putting by anymeans, but it's just not for me.
