    Agreed, fact is I tried all the available Sixpoint when it hit NE Ohio & found them all very similar. Variations on a hoppy theme all saddled w/varying degrees of bitterness. All left me feeling underwhelmed and disappointed really not a whole lotta depth to any of them. Sweet Action & Bengali Tiger I would revisit if offered.

    I wanna revisit Resin, just to see if I get what everyone raves about. Same with Sweet Action.
