Pours a hazy mid copper with frothy cream head that dissipates somewhat quickly, leaving a thin ring.

Soft citrus, floral hops, and resin rule the aroma. Bruised grapefruit and tangerine accent the caramel malt backbone, but resin dominates. High citrus becomes more pungent as it warms.

A sweet, rich, caramel and toasted malt backbone greets the palate, with bitter resin reigning in the finish. Great balance. Underpinnings of tropical fruit salad add complexity. Notes of mango, pineapple, and tangerine are intriguing.

Body is fairly thick, with moderate carbonation and slight alcohol burn.

Sixpoint really did a great job with this one. The aroma is great, but the flavor is even more of a treat. Really keeps me wanting more, with the flavoring hop complexity. The malt backbone is exceptional, as is the hop character.

Pours a golden honey. Wonderful dense generous white head. Lacing is scant.

These aromas never fail to make me giddy. Guava paste, mangoes and grapefruit. Pine needle and pipe resin. Caramelized sugar, flan and malts.

Hop bitterness, tropical fruit and muted alcohol splash the roof of the mouth. Malty sweetness falls on the tongue. Dankness ensues. Hop lasting and some lingering with the alcohol. One of the most guava forward brews I've had, IMO.

Big, hot and thick--- that's what she said.

This is hard booze for guys who want to get drunk fast. IMO this needs to be drunk at colder temps. Higher temps it becomes sweeter and maltier-maybe that's your thing. You gotta love the 111 IBUs and this 11.1 abv is plain crazy. Picked this up at my local after a long hard week and really wanted to get a quit buzz and this delivered. Great design and love how this fits in the mitt. Put on your big boy pants, Sixpoint has delivered some serious shit here! And yes, I bought more.
