    Looks great!

    You guys should consider doing a coffee blonde at some point. Great style; haven't seen many attempt it apart from Cascade.

    Cheers!

    Just bought a can of Hi-Res and Beast Mode this week to try two new for me Sixpoint offerings since I've really liked the majority of them (sensi harvest was only one to not do anything for me). This sounds great, can't wait to try when/if I see it, thanks for always spreading the news on here!

    Any thoughts towards those that might "cellar" this beer? (I am not of the type, I am far too impatient to let any beer sit longer than a couple of weeks, but I am curious...)

    I would recommend keeping it at 45-50F and check and see what it tastes like at 6, 9, and 12 months. Belgian beers can get pretty savory over time, but you also can get an intense yeast spiciness once the hops fade. Some people love that - I prefer the hoppy ones fresh - even Orval.

    Its not really either - probably closer to a Belgian Strong Pale Ale

    thanks!

    this one is not really related to the Resin - but it would show up at the family reunion to crash the party! :-)

    Real talk though this sounds interesting take. I will admit being somewhat skeptical of the beer, but Sixpoint tends to take away any doubt once you actually try the beer.

    This is going to drop in about two weeks...

    it will have a little "funky" character in that sense (no wild yeast though), but def some phenolics and spice...but expect a nice American hop dosage too :-)

    no defined plans at this time...the next logical step would be to fill in the remaining gaps on the eastern seaboard...

    exactly - the proof is in the pudding!

    So @Sixpoint, would you consider this more in the vein of a Sixpoint version of say, Duvel Tripel Hop than a basic BSPA? I love BSPAs though, and consider Duvel Tripel Hop to be divine, so either way I'm sold.

    Its really hard to define which category it would be in. It has the hop level of the Duvel, but the color of almost a Belgian Dubbel (deep amber, not quite brown). As usual, our team of brewers don't want to be pinned down on the style...
