4.39/5 rDev +6%
Poured from can to glass. Appears a bright clear golden with a finger of white foamy head. The nose starts with and onslaught of deep resinous hops with dank notes of pine, grapefruit, and zest. Sweet malty notes shine through as well with some honey and graham cracker like sweetness. The taste is surprisingly not nearly as bitter as the nose suggested. Pine and grapefruit come through the strongest with sweet caramel undertones throughout. Nice balance of assertive flavors The finish is hoppy but not very bitter which again is nice and makes for a delicate balance. Mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall, this is a winner from Sixpoint. A significant improvement over Resin with much more character and a great balance. Definitely worth a try!!

poured 12oz can into snifter. Best before 7/12/14
A - Lighter orange gold with an off white head and some good lacing.
S - Hoppy with floral, tropical notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and bitter pine. Reminds me of Sucks.
T - Big bitter hop profile from the hops. Plenty of grapefruit, with a sweeter pineapple part. Piney and bitter grapefruit finish. Again, this reminds me of Sucks, not the same, but there are similarities.
M - Great mouthfeel on this. It is slick and I find it to be dry.
O - I am impressed with this IIPA. It lived up to the bitterness claims. I know some said it doesn't seem to be bitter, but I don't blow my palate out with constant onslaught of hoppy beer.

Disappointed by the lackluster nose. Or maybe I was just hoping for something disarming and exotic. It's a fine smell, I guess. The taste is pretty sharply boozy with some pleasant maltiness floating around, although the aftertaste is just kind of tongue-smackingly dry and vacant.
Perhaps it was the expectation that ruined this one for me. It's a perfectly acceptable beer and I will look forward to drinking the other members of its family that it left behind in the refrigerator. But when you throw down with 110 IBUs and 11% alcohol there ought to be something spectacular going on, something challenging.
This one is just too easy-going.

The legendary woodychandler hit me off with this beer. Many thanks. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is dominated by piney hops. Taste is big and bold, heaps of hops, a bit of alcohol, lots of pine, finishes dry enough to leave me breathless. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a fine beer, but I don't think I could have to many in one sitting.
