appearance is pretty flawless, color is a bright, clear gold, bear pours three fingers of white, creamy head reinforced by a slow stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

aroma is mildly fruity, with a punch of resin/ pine oil and a large alcohol presence in the finish.

taste- upfront is light fruit and citrus including red apples, pineapple and grapefruit, then WHAM a punch of hop bitterness and pine with a wallop of booze in the finish.

mouthfeel- medium body, pleasantly carbonated with a very creamy feeling on the tongue but leaves a sharp bitterness, providing lots of wonderful contrast.

overall this beer excites with bright flavors and a lighter body but satisfies with strong hop presence and a boozy finish. great for beginning or ending the night with, good job Sixpoint.
