3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Guest tap at Haymarket. Pours an unclear yellow orange with a soapy white head. Aroma has sweet caramel, dark fruits, pine and some resin. Taste brings toffee, pine and some earthyness. Sweet and a bit "old" fashioned, yet the tender assures me there was a "recent" Sixpoint takeover. Finishes somewhat short with alcohol. Some sweetness, slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours deep amber with a large tan head, uneven bubbles, and sticky lacing. Aroma is not very pungent on this brew but has some floral notes and some maltiness on the nose. Taste is medium bitter (103 ibu seems to be pretty light on the tongue) and has some sweetness on the finish. The 9.1% is well hidden and the palate is very filling. Solid.

Hazy amber hue capped by large foamy off white head. Gobs of lacing. Nose of pine and citrus. Enjoyable blend of malt holding together the citrus and pine. Not over the top bitter. Aight!!!

Can. Dark, unclear amber with a big off-white head. 5 for appearance in part because of the cool energy-drink like can. Aroma is pine, resin, some floral, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, medium-heavy bitter. Very bitter finish. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy/sticky texture. Very good DIPA.

Ar: oranges, grapefruit, pine, fruit candy, some tropical fruits, but mostly resinous notes of grapefruit and pine, sweet maltbase and a warming finish.
Ap: Amber colour, creamy off-white head, lots of lacing.
F: thick maltbase and a punch of bitterness upfront. Grapefruit, resin, pine, citric, herbs, no tropical fruits, but a very nice flavour nonetheless, ending in a warming finish.
M: fullbodied, soft carbonation and dry.
T: Solid DIPA.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Hints of pine, resin and citrus, but faint.
Appearance: Cloudy orange with a thin, white head.
Taste: Medium bitterness with hints of sourness at the edges. Quite tasty.
Palate: Full body, oily texture, average carbonation, long finish.
Overall: I’m not blown away, but it’s a very tasty and well developed beer. I’m certainly going to stock some of these in the fridge for a cold day when I need a warm up.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2012 Bottle through Brill/Systembolaget. A very hoppy beer with pine cone and resin, also some grapefruit. Very boozey, but might work if you want a hop kick.

Real piney and bitter, very good overall. ABV is just right. This would be the perfect beer for the cooler on your ATV or snowmobile in upstate NY! A real quick tasty buzz!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. Poured slightly hazy medium peach with a tall, creamy, sticky beige head.. looked great! The aroma picked up pine resin, grass, and grapefruit zest over sweet caramel.. not super complex, but very fresh. The flavor found similar, and very bitter hoppage throughout, lingering for a long time on the peppery finish.. the high bitterness masked the character of the malt base for the most part.. alcohol amplified the bitterness in the end. Medium-bodied and sharp on the palate with bitterness and boozage.. OK flow.. this was good, but not great.
