4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber orange with a white head just short of a finger that dissipates to a frothy ring. Pungent aroma of tropical fruit, candied mango, pink grapefruit, pine resin, and spice nicely integrated with a sturdy, caramel driven malt backbone. Big bitter hop ride up front with an interesting dank carmelized finish strangely reminiscent of a barleywine, especially as it warms. Mouthfeel is hearty and sticky, very smooth even with the moderate carbonation. I'd never guess this was an 11.1% ABV beer as the alcohol is expertly hidden, making this beer dangerously drinkable. I picked this beer up after reading all the positive reviews and I'm glad I did. This one has staying power. Highly recommend.

Great beer has a high impact of hops right out of the gate sticks for you for a while alcohol content fantastic pretty deep flavors as far as like pine and different variants but it's really a good easy drinking very hoppy beer

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Bearded Lady. Clear reddish orange color with a tall, frothy white head composed of very small bubbles. Aroma is strong sweet resin, sap and candied sugar. Flavor of candied sugar upfront gives way to a mix of dried leaves and stark hop presence. Earthy hops. Sharp palate sensation. Finishes bitter.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very hazy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Decent retention with streaks of spotty lacing left behind.
Dank floral hop aroma with a strong earthy, resinous quality countered by subtle fruit sweetness and a subtle pale malt backbone. Sticky hop oils with some soil, grass, pine needle and spruce tip followed by faint grapefruit, citrus and stone fruit. Cracker-y malt backbone with some bread and biscuit. Sweeter malt notes come forward as it warms, giving off some caramel and toffee. Decent enough aroma but could use more tropical/citrus fruit sweetness to counter all of the grassy, earthier characteristics.
On the fuller end of medium body with a blast of dry, earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweet malt backbone into a hot, boozy finish. Sticky hop flavor dominates the palate with hints of dirt/soil and grassy pine needle. Very dry and overwhelmingly bitter. Desperately in need of some sweetness for balance. The subtle tropical/citrus fruit presence found in the nose is completely overpowered. The bitter hop profile is countered by a sweet malt backbone with hints of bread, biscuit, toffee, caramel and roasted nut. The malt backbone us stronger than I usually prefer but in thus beer it actually helps mute the unpleasantly aggressive hops. Strong fuesel alcohol flavor lingering in the finish becoming overwhelmingly hot and boozy. The high ABV isn’t well masked at all with tons of ethanol flavor and warmth in the finish. Not one of Sixpoint’s finer offerings, in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml can. Bright amber colour with small sudsy white head. Huge piney resin aroma, with some citrus, biscuity malt and honey. The taste is quite boozy, with lots of sweetened grapefruit, resin, biscuit. The hop bitterness is a bit harsh in the finish. Medium bodied and drying on the tongue. Not bad but not as smooth or well balanced as the Sixpoint Resin.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crisp light honey and blonde coloured body with a touch of copper and a nice, three centimetre tall tan head - very nice looking. Aroma of resin (duh), alcohol, bread, flowers and a bunch of unfinished sugars - nice and pungent throughout. Full-bodied; Strong alcohol and resin flavour with a big dose of pineapple, pine and grain, all with some caster sugar and a lot of syrup from canned fruit. Aftertaste shows a nice hop layering of tropical fruits and resin, but a bit too much alcohol and pungency and not enough malt complexity. Overall, a decent enough beer, but in a style like this, a tough one to break through, this is ho-hum. The only saving grace is the high alcohol can style that Six Point does, it’s nice to drink a beer like this on a train or somewhere that canning works better. I sampled this thin twelve ounce can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 19-June-2015 for US$3,50 sampled at home in Washington on 22-July-2015.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can fresh off the delivery truck at Beer Frog Spring Hill. Pours orange with a white head. Nose is huge hop syrup- like orange juice concentrate and distilled pine sap with some caramel in there but it is so faint I barely get anything. Flavor is similar- hop juice with huge booze, some distilled pine resin, and some water at some point. This one was over the top and I could not get into it. Medium to full in body and not my cup of tea.

Palate: average carbonation, sticky texture, bitter finish, medium body. Taste: sweet caramel that is phenomenal, on into floral and citrus hops with a very smooth transition. Overall, amazing beer.
