Sixpoint Resin, originally uploaded by adambarhan.
A: Pours a gold with light amber tint and massive foamy head. Some lazy carbonation evident.
S: Smells like a hop lover’s dream with pungent aromas of pine & citrus. Totally in-your-face hop aroma. The name “resin” aptly fits this beer from aroma alone.
T: Truly resinous on the teeth. It feels like there is so much hop residue that it coats your tongue. I like it. Very faint malt character but mostly hops through & through. Some warm alcohol notes are evident.
M: Highly bitter. Feels a bit heavy due to the high amount of hop residue. Drinks like a barley wine.
O: A very nice interpretation of a DIPA. And an East Coast version at that. I really like this one and will absolutely come back to it again and again.
