12oz can. Appearance: Crystal clear golden with a moderate white foam head. Aroma: Typical citrus and resinous hop, with a bit of herbal, earthy notes. Taste: Rich crystal malt sweetness with a sharp but balanced bitterness. Malt base makes this beer more balanced than a typical American IPA. Mouthfeel: Medium body, slightly higher than a typical IPA, with moderate carbonation. Finish: Well balanced malt/bitter finish that leaves more of a citrusy/herbal finish than true bitterness. Overall: This beer seems to be a balance of American and English IPAs. Citrus and pine resin aromas dominate, but overall shows the balance and finish of an English IPA. Has more malt character than a west coast IPA that leads to a well rounded IPA

Great surprise when I ordered this at a restaurant. Great bitterness and nose. Can't wait to have more.

I love Six Point Resin, so wanted to try this. This is pretty tasty. Nice and smooth hoppy taste complimented with an amber color. Would get again in a heartbeat.
