Pours slighty hazy with a moderate head.
Pine packed scent
Taste was just short of an overwhelming blow of hops followed by a lingering boozy feel (it is a 9.8% DIPA after all)
Smooth mouthfeel, needed a breath or two between each sip to fully appreciate the complexity, but overall, I was eager to dive back in.
This is an excellent variant of Resin, my all-time favorite from Sixpoint.

L: Poured from a can to a snifter glass. had a dark amber color and a super cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, off white, long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: An incredibly enticing aroma of dank hops, tropical fruit, citrus, malt, and pine resin.

T: Tasted of a good shot of tropical fruit (mango), lots of dank hops (not overdone), a tinge of malt in the finish), some citrus (orange peel), and a bit of pine resin. This is one of those incredibly well-balanced DIPAs. The fruit elements never let the powerful dank hops and pine overwhelm things. Quite delicious.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a sweet, slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Puff is the type of beer that won't please everyone (what is, really?), but if you want something slightly odd, give it a whirl.

Very cloudy off color orange. Nice head although short lived. The aroma is hoppy but not strong. It has a very hoppy flavor with no bitterness. It drinks easily enough and there's hardly a hint of alcohol. Overall this is fine DIPA. Compares with the other fine IPA's from Sixpoint. Beer is culture is right. Canned 19MAY18. Thanks for sharing with me in Texas.

Nearly clear with a light amber color. Excellent thin bubbled head which lasts throughout the tasting. Good blanketing lace.

Prickly, piney aroma. A little toasted malt to the nose as well.

The taste oddly starts with a strong bittering hop. I then pick up the alcohol in the swallow. The aftertaste features a sweet toasted maltose. The body is rich and the carbonation is low. The final impressions are of the balance although all of the flavors are equally strong.

Look- pours light brownish yellow. Look like a homebrew extract kit color.

Smell - stale. Kind of a dank fafdonh hop smell. Smells like an IPA that’s been sitting around for a bit but in this case the beer according to its stamped date is only 1.5 months old. No reason for the stale smell.

Taste is ok at best. Bitter with a bit of a resin taste coming through. Kind of harsh over done grassy taste.

Feel- a bit over carbonat and it really burns out the taste bud

Overall just not that good. Seems like a very basic home brew that sat too long

Canned 5/10/18, consumed 6/26/18

L: Uniformly hazy amber color with a small head that left very little lacing. Not thick cloudy like an NEIPA.

S: Bright mix of tropical, citrus, and stone fruits & peels with nice, resinous, danky hop notes.

T: Follows nose, more danky than fruity, super sweet, full flavored but not as much of a bright pop as the aroma.

F: Somewhere between medium & heavy, good carbonation, really solid but not overwhelming bitterness, pretty clean finish.

O: Really nice, solid Imperial IPA. Not an NEIPA at all; I'd characterize this as a danky, unfiltered West Coast style Imp. IPA. Honestly, this brew hangs tough with similarly strong IPAs that we have out West here.
