3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slender 12 oz can purchased as a Single at Pace-Hi Beer and Wine Shop in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is resin bitterness, a hint of black licorice, and cracker malt behind that. The taste is pine juniper resin, turning to a weird honey sweet alcohol. Sweetness cloys a fair bit, detracting from the pleasant resin bitterness. The palate is medium bodied, low carbonation level, and finishing with the honey sweet booze. There were parts of this I liked, but the booze and sweet took away some enjoyment.

12oz can, thanks Allen! Label indicates a rather austere 103IBU and 9,1ABV, but this turned out to be a very well-balanced DIPA that got smoother and tastier as it warmed. Pours a gorgeous creamy milky-peach orange with stable white head. Pine onslaught of probably mainly Columbus hops, well kept in check by almost chewable caramel malts. Some alcohol briefly shining through. Smooth, bold, delicious, with a mighty wallop.

Pours deep orange hazy and has a two finger head of of off white foam that fell fairly fast but left nice thick lace. Nose is great. Piney hops, lots of resins, tangerine and grapefruit. As a point of interest -the tangerine in this beer literally fills up your mouth like a real tangerine. It’s is the most accurate tasting of a specific fruit in a beer that I have ever noticed. Good citrus with a sugary and pungent nose. Taste is breaddy with a honey sweetness. Woody grassy hops play off the ripe fruit and the citrus lends a slight pucker. Silky malt that has plenty of caramel and brown sugar. Finishes nice and bitter with a bit of grapefruit, a bit of alcohol warmth and plenty of oils to coat the palate; but they don’t disturb the palate. It’s a little chewy in the finish with strong tea like qualities and toasted malt flavor. Grand.

Can. Darker gold with a frothy beige head. Strong hops aromas but they are more carmely than piney. Smooth and creamy with a more mellow and citrus flavors. I usually like being bowled over with bitter hops but this is a great change of pace. Neat DIPA.

Dear Sixpoint Brewery... Thank you. Resin is amazing! Pours a beautiful honey color with a nice white cap. Smells like pineapple. Bold double IPA flavor coming through. Hoppy, pineapple, and slightly pine flavored with notes of other citrus fruits. If you see it... Buy it

Cloudy golden orange pour with a white head. Really strong pine aroma with a moderate citrus nose. Some bread, grapefruit, and maybe some floral notes. The flavor is highly bitter. Plenty of pine and grapefruit peel. Some floral hops, sweet bread, and a touch of grass and butter.

Very clear orange/golden. Big white frothy head that lingers. Small amount of carbonation. Aroma is very hoppy and bitter. Resin and pine. Very skunky. Mouth is BITTER and hoppy. Pine and floral hops with caramel. A hop heads dream. No sweetness what so ever.

12 oz tall boy can into a pint glass. Best Before: September 11, 2013....so its pretty fresh no?
A - Pours a hazy amber body with a finger of white foam. Decent amount of lacing with minimal retention.
S&T - Pine, grapefruit, and sweet bubble gum. The taste is piney and very sweet with candied peaches and bitter grapefruit. Despite the high IBU it’s not over the top bitter. Surprisingly delicious. Mouth feel is medium bodied, slick, and oily.
O - Damn, this beer really surprised me. Candied peaches and resinous piney hops. This is a stand out beer that I always overlooked.

Vilken fruktig doft. Typiska amerikanska humle dofter. Sommar hela vägen med toner av barr. påminner om Modus Hopperandi. Åh det smakar som det luktar. Rejäl åh go efterbeska. Vilken burk öl. Lär av denna Svenska bryggare..

Can. Golden with white head. Aroma of pine, resin, caramel and some citrus. Taste is similar ; resin, pine and caramel. Not as raw and painfully bitter as expected
