3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very disappointing. People be warned, this is not a TIPA or even a DIPA... to me this smells and tastes like a watered down boozy barley wine. The aroma and flavor is dominated by alcohol and malt with just a few hoppy citrus notes in the nose and seemingly none in the flavor. As someone who LOVES Resin I could not be more surprised at how understated the hops are in this ale. More power to sixpoint for defying styles and tradition, but, as in this case, sometimes that will be unfortunately misleading and result in customer disappointment.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is citrus and oranges with an apparent sweet malty presence. Slight resin on here as well. Taste is really sweet and malty at first. A lot of sweet fruits as well, like ripe pineapples and sunkissed mangos. I catch some kind of honey sweetness as well. In the end there’s a big alcoholic sting on the tip of the tongue with a really citrusy finish. A tad too boozy to be really top notch, but still tasty and I got what I expected, a kick in the ass.

Clear golden with a medium head.
Resinous and alcoholic in both aroma and flavour.
Medium bitterness with to much alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Burk. Orange öl med ett litet vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av apelsin, alkohol, grapefrukt och tall. Alldeles för mycket alkohol i munnen för min smak. Lite som att suga på frukterna i en punchbål - gott till en början, rätt tröttsamt i längden.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper-amber, with little by way of head. Aroma is marked by fruit and hops and booze. Flavor is also overly boozy, with some hops and fruit, but hidden under the alcohol. This could be good if it had a lot more balance, but as it is, it’s just too much booze and too little else.

Amber color, tan head. Caramel nose, malty, fruity, grass, harsh hoppy, alcohol, hint of citrus. Sweet taste, caramel, alcohol, resin, bitter finish, hint of grapefruit, way too heavy and boozy. Full body, soft to average carbonation, warming alcohol.

draft that was somewhat hazy lighter amber color with white head. medium malt, caramel and a slew of hops, some citrus and some pine mix. the flavor was quite flavorful and evenly balanced. nice medium malt base to hold all these hops. lots of citrus and pine in the flavor. medium carbonation. overall quite delightful. the alcohol comes on the end but is muted by the other ingredients.

can - Pours hazy copper colored with a small head and smells of citrus hops and some malt. The flavor is good and bitter as expected. There are citrus and floral notes and a solid malt backbone. Medium to full bodied. Very tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with a large head. Oily, floral hop aroma with some cookie dough in the background.
The taste is hops, grass, gooseberries, nettles and grape fruit leading to a warm alcohol finish.
I get Strong Lager vibes from this one.
