A: Pours a clear light amber color. Three fingers of creamy fluffy white
head. Excellent retention. Like most beers from Sixpoint the lacing is
great.

S: Juicy citrus. Grapefruit. Other fruits. Fresh. Very light alcohol aroma.

T/M: Strong. Alcohol is not completely hidden. Good balance of flavors.
Plenty of fruits. Passion. Citrus. Bitterness is lighter with more grapefruit
and citrus. Creamy with a little malt sweetness. Aftertaste is a little
sticky, sweet and fruity.

O: A sipper for me. Great juicy citrus flavors. Balance is nice and has a
nice hop bite.

Cheers!!

I really enjoyed Resin so I assumed that this would be no different.

A - Bright orange color. Some haziness with white head and strong lacing.

S - Very hop forward aroma with citrus hops mixing with tropical and grassy tones. Significant caramel and malt are second. Like a big candy hop smell.

T - Big sweet flavor full of West Coast hops and strong caramel sweetness. There is a fruitiness along with the citrus of the hops that makes this beer juicy on the tongue. Definitely one of the sweetest DIPAs I've had but I like it.

M - Medium to full mouth-feel. The carbonation was moderate. It finishes with quite a bit of body and is not one I could drink more than a few of. There is bitterness on the finish but the sweet character wants to sit.

Overall, a great beer that is a nice mixture of a lot of flavors that I love separately in one beer. Awesome hoppy aroma, delicious sweet flavor, and feels nice going down. Though it isn't the very best beer I've ever had; I would recommend trying this but after you've tried Resin.

SAmpling a cellar temp can poured into a pint glass. the beer pours a clear copper color with creamy densely packed eggshell white head. The foam is 3 cm deep and fades slowly as I sample the beer. Leaves some windowpane lattice on my glass.
Aroma is resiny pine sap with hints of grapefruit too. First sip gives me an average body and fine tingly carbonation.
Flavor is a bit of caramel and biscuity malt but rolls to some hop characteristics pretty quickly after the first flavors hit. Grapefruit rind, some pine sap, general astringent aspirin drying and a bit of an herbal note too. Fairly complex hop mix.
I dont get any booze as I drain the pint and the beer is amazingly drinkable for the ABV.
I enjoy this beer and would buy it again, it isnt just super bitter for bitter sake and the drinkability is great!
