Pours a toasted, hazy amber hue into my tasting glass. The tall can it comes in reminds me of a 'Red Bull.' An initial frothy head recedes to barely a thin ring, but on the plus side there is a sticky mess of lacing down the glass. Great look. It's smells wonderful - mostly pineapple, grapefruit, cream & caramel. Fairly straightforward. The flavor exudes the 'resinous' variety of hops as the name suggests, but also a subtle caramel, candy-ness of the malts, and a certain earthy aspect I cannot quite put my finger on, but I like it. It's mouthfeel is medium, just coating the mouth thinly, with an alcohol heat that you notice before long. The beer is numbing on the back of your throat, leaving you wanting another pleasant sip. Overall, this is simultaneously sweet and bitter. A great east coast IPA. Well done Sixpoint, a brewery close to home.

Pours a dense light orange with a swiftly rising, mildly off white head. Looks sticky and it is. It leaves tons of lace on the glass and has nice legs too.
Smells like rich caramel with nice hints of citrus. This is hop dominant but the malts really balance it out well. It's dense on the tongue and the hops present well at first, then the malt sweetness finishes it off. The rich creaminess allows it to linger and it has a very nice carbonation level.
I really hope this is a year round brew as I could see this as a go to beer.
