4.35/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a slimline can into a snifter glass. I love the Sixpoint 12 ounce slim cans.
A: A medium copper color with a two finger fluffy eggwhite head. Nice glass lacing is left. Good looking beer.
S: Wow, so fruity and tropical with loads of orange and citrus and loads of tropical fruits. Some sweetness is picked up with caramel and honey tones.
T: Fantastic taste with huge fruit hops. Citrus fruits like orange, tangerine and lemon couple with some tropical fruits of mango and pineapple. There is a hefty caramel and honey sweetness that really sticks because of that 11%, but the hop flavors really are the main show here. Finish turns slightly bitter with some pine flavors and lingering sweetness and alcohol sure enough comes through. Terrific beer.
M: Full, coating, alcoholic and lasting, just outstanding.
O: This is a fantastic triple IPA (if that's what you want to call it) that does not disappoint at all. This is similar to their fantastic Resin DIPA but pumped up in all aspects and way more extreme, but still very drinkable! This beer is a winner, nicely done Sixpoint.
If you get a chance to try this, do so. It absolutely belongs with the big boys and it can no doubt hold it's own against them. Fantastic.

First impressions of this beer are great -- a big blast of citrus and pine aroma when it hits the glass. And then it's deep orange in appearance with a tight finger of white head. Head recedes after a couple minutes, but leaves some nice lacing. "Bright" would be a good descriptor for both its smell and appearance.
Taste -- holy hop juice!! Immediately delivers big, bright tangerine and pine. It's balanced perfectly from the start with a chewy, caramel malt presence that manages to bring some subtle vanilla too. The flavor just keeps on coming -- grapefruit, lime, grape, berries, juniper... There's definitely some bitterness, but not nearly as much as you would expect from this big, big IPA. Man, just really delicious stuff that hardly hints at its 11% ABV. Only a touch of cool alcohol vapor on the finish.
Mouthfeel is really nice -- a little chewy, a little creamy, yet ultimately dry in a way that lets the hops really shine.
Overall, this is an incredible beer that really exceeded my expectations. Among the best double/triple IPAs I've had.

I picked up a couple of cans from Vintage Estate for $3.29 each. Was quite excited since I couldn't find this anywhere in Pittsburgh.
A - Quite a deep dark amber brown seems a bit hazy with such a bouquet of head that makes for the most impressive lacing I have ever seen in some time. The whole top of my glass is coated!
S - Well the alcohol smells pretty hidden but it also doesnt smell too bitter or hoppy more of a citrus and lemon hops stank. Smell is also balanced smelling with good malts.
T - Taste is pretty near as perfect as one would expect for a Triple IPA. Smooth bittering bite of pine needles and lemon rinds with no real taste of the 11% that is advertised.
M - Still quite a beast of a beer it drinks very medium to thick in body, very resinous (get it?) and syrup like.
Overall I love the taste to me its one of the best Triple IPA's I ever had and the lacing is something to marvel at as I type my glass is covered in a layer of sticky foam!
Worth picking up if you love bitter IPA's that pack a punch!
