The beer pours out into a Duvel glass quite clear and amber or light copper colored with a 1” ivory head that recedes to a thin film over the liquid, leaving a ring of foam around the glass and leaving behind a thin almost circular ring along with small patches and legs of lacing. Sipping leaves foam on one side of the glass and small patches, some speckles and a few legs of lacing.

The aroma is resinous, citric and slightly earthy with noticeable malt undertones.

Initial hop bitterness becomes sweet, citric, and piney before moving back to a lightly bitter finish. The alcohol is barely detectable here as it is well integrated with the other flavors and makes its presence known more from the warming effects than from showing in the flavors.

The mouth feel is medium bodied and smooth. with light prickly carbonation. While the carbonation is adequate it is a bit on the light side. The finish is long and dry, inviting another sip.

This is indeed an excellent DIPA which is tasty enough that one is tempted to have more than one, which could be a mistake at this ABV. Throughout the beer the flavors are sharing the stage with each other and no single element dominates the show. I certainly intend to try this beer again.

On tap at New England Taphouse grille.
Lightly hazy orange amber color with a decent head. Huge pine with lots of tropical fruits and some big apricot in the nose and flavor. Solid bready caramel backbone and a hint of ethanol. Enjoyed the hell out of this sipper.

Beautiful amber colored clear perfection with a matching white 3 finger head. Bravo!
Citrus aroma and pleasant malty undertones.
Sweet start with wonderful citrus notes and noticeably bitter end with much warming booze.
This is truly an exceptional imp ipa
New favorite. Well done Sixpoint!

A bright amber in color with a short, bright white head.

Boozy and dank aroma: herbal, vegetable, spicy. Like smelling a hop pellet.

Starts with a big alcohol burn that mixes with big hop flavors. Aggressive.

Slick body thanks to the alcohol.

Overall an angry big IPA. Everyday drinker? No, but so what.

Best by July 10, 2015

Pours honey gold color with great clarity. One finger off white head dissipates to thin film with with crescent moon-like half ring around glass.

Smells of a balanced dipa with hefty malt backbone and earthy resinous hops.

Taste up front is bitter bite followed quickly with some candy sweetness. A bit of booze but shielded pretty good. Some slight touch of apricot but bitterness overtakes most of any fruity profile there may be. Some of the alcohol can't help but make itself known at least a little bit towards the bottom of the glass.

Feel is medium bodied with low side of medium carbonation. Maybe a little syrupy. I think it hits the style pretty good here.

A pretty big dipa but doesn't feel to be as much. This goes down pretty quick as its tastey and not overbearing. Bittersweet might be the best one word description. The sweetness and resin play well together. Booze is there but hidden well. Nice work once again from Sixpoint.
