look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz can left in the can. Best before 7/12/14 stamped on bottom of can.

A- from my vantage appears a hazy amber/ yellow. Minimal foam due to a lack of pour i suspect and many present carbonation bubbles.

S- rather aromatic with some pineapple citrus and pine notes; though smell slowly dissipates more than expected.

T- Etoh comes off hard from the beginning. Sweet citrus and some uncomplicated bitter hops shows near the end.

M- Medium bodied, heavily carbonated, bitter and sweet profile. While not thick or syrup-like the 11.1% ABV is barely hidden and overly present in my opinion.

O- a decent DIPS; though with the choices that VT and the world present, i will not be anxious for another. Closer to a tripel in taste and character.

Amazingly smooth and fruity beer. Cool packaging and suprising pint content in this good looking can. It also has a surprisingly low or rather undistinguished alcohol profile, not sure how that was achieved, really impressed. Sharp flavors, crisp beer and a punch of hops.
Bon boulot Sixpoint!!

Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Absolute nice amber body that comes off a slight hazy body coming off a bit bubbly with a white head roughly a notch under a finger's length.

Smell: Light forest scent, feels a bit like citrus skin and maybe a bit of pink grapefruit.

Taste: Smooth bitterness that if you think about it, it's lightly sweet but the piney and floral feel might overshadow it.

Mouth: Medium, comes off a bit like toasted bread and yes sticky.

OveralL This brew is definitely designed those who absolutely love Resin, just a little extra kick. If this is true that this was a limited one time brew, Sixpoint needs to keep this one a steady. Cheers to you all, Salud!

Another slightly sought-after DIPA that I'm happy to have found...thanks to my awesome girlfriend for picking it up!
Poured into snifter; translucent orange, a little amber, with a nice white head that fades after a bit into a thin ring of foam with some fine coating on top.
Smell is awesome; dank, tropical fruit, sweet citrus. Just the kind of DIPA I love.
Taste...damn. Big tropical fruit, sweet citrus, pineapple, mango, tangerine, lots of sweetness. Hefty dose of bitterness as well to back it up, which keeps the finish clean and incredibly light for 11.1%.
Mouthfeel is relatively full and sticky, but the bitterness cleans it off nicely.
Overall, this is an excellent DIPA. Perfectly done in the currently popular style of fruit-forward, light-bodied, high-abv, sweetness, etc. Awesome.
