look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Dark amber, slightly orange and brown. Two inch head with plenty of lacing produced.

Aroma-Big notes of pine and citrus at first along with some caramel sweetness.

Taste- Aroma pretty indicative of whats to come with huge pine and citrus flavors and surprisingly big caramel malt backbone. Well balanced, but the malt takes away from the initial hop punch.

Feel- Malt backbone gives this a smooth and creamy feel that's very pleasant.

Overall- Well balanced for the most part, but the malt is tad overdone. Still, this is a very good ipa and on target for their west coast style goal. Definitely a must try for those in OKC or passing through. Also, if there was an single ipa version of sixpoint resin, this would be it. (88/100)

Poured from the can into a Deschutes teku, since I have no Roughtail glassware.

Darker amber in color, some haze, topped with a foamy cap of off-white head, that retained as a ringlet, and laced the glass nicely. In the nose, pine resin and fairly dominant bready malts. The taste was pretty malty as well, not really a "malt bomb," but definitely more malt-dominant than an IPA should be; caramelized sugar with some resinous hop notes in the background. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel. While not an ideal IPA (or even an IPA at all), it definitely wasn't undrinkable. I just ignored labels/styles and pretended it was a lightly hopped brown ale.
