Keg at Randolph Beer House. First pours of the keg. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is sweet, juicy, sticky, piney resin, stewed pineapple, candy and some sherbet. The taste is crisp, bitter, boosty, resinous, pine, oily, grassy dankness, some minerals, brown bread, citrus peel and toffee with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Must be one of their best.

식스 포인트 브루잉 - 레즌 9.1% 플로랄한 홉아로마가 비강을 스치고 지나 무거운 몰티감의 단맛이 치고오른다. 두꺼운 바디감의 농후한 살구, 혹은 리츠-람부탄 류의 과육이 뽀얀 열대과일의 맛과향으로 마무리
홉의 진액까지 뽑아 낼 듯 무겁게 디자인 된 맥주로 디테일을 찾는 즐거움 보다는 레시피의 핵심을 이해하고 즐기는 것이 좋다. 실제로는 더블 IPA에 가깝지만 딱히 IPA라고 보기엔 무리가 있는 장르 파괴적 맥주.
크래프ț 맥주를 제대로 이해하고 그 위에서 새로운 것을 제시하는 좋은 마인드의 신진 브루어리. 이 회사의 맥주는 병으로는 출시되지 않는 것으로 알고 있다. 국내에도 다른 모델이 수입되고 있으니 시도해 보시길.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
BBD 1/17/16. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Intense world class nose of hops (grapefruit, pine and spruce resin, orange, tangerine) over a solid biscuit backdrop with a touch of caramel.
Heavy medium body with a slick oily texture. Above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly burst in the finish.
Near world class flavor profile that is reasonably intense, quite complex and very well balanced. It begins with a burst of sweet citrus hops that is orange and tangerine. This flows into the grapefruit and resin elements, then the sweetness begins to shift towards biscuit. The middle brings a mild bitterness that is still well balanced with biscuit and sweet tropical notes. I was surprised by how subtle and balanced the bitterness was considering it clocks in at 100 IBU - a testament to true brewer skill. As the finish approaches, the alcohol looses itís cover and a fair amount of astringency creeps in. The finish is a slow astringent and bitter fade ( grapefruit and pine resin ) over a subtle biscuit with a hint of caramel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can. Appearance: Deep golden with an orange hue, clear, with a moderate white head.
Aroma: Name of this beer is fitting, with a resinous, piney aroma dominant. Also some grass and tropical fruit notes.
Taste: Starts out with a sweet maltiness, turns to a grassy citrus, then turns into a sharp, resinous, piney bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderately high carbonation.
Finish: Strong bitterness, and a dry resin stickiness on the tongue.
Overall: Definitely a hop bomb, but has a strong enough malt backbone to balance it. More well rounded than most IIPAs.
