Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Absolute nice amber body that comes off a slight hazy body coming off a bit bubbly with a white head roughly a notch under a finger's length.

Smell: Light forest scent, feels a bit like citrus skin and maybe a bit of pink grapefruit.

Taste: Smooth bitterness that if you think about it, it's lightly sweet but the piney and floral feel might overshadow it.

Mouth: Medium, comes off a bit like toasted bread and yes sticky.

OveralL This brew is definitely designed those who absolutely love Resin, just a little extra kick. If this is true that this was a limited one time brew, Sixpoint needs to keep this one a steady. Cheers to you all, Salud!

Another slightly sought-after DIPA that I'm happy to have found...thanks to my awesome girlfriend for picking it up!
Poured into snifter; translucent orange, a little amber, with a nice white head that fades after a bit into a thin ring of foam with some fine coating on top.
Smell is awesome; dank, tropical fruit, sweet citrus. Just the kind of DIPA I love.
Taste...damn. Big tropical fruit, sweet citrus, pineapple, mango, tangerine, lots of sweetness. Hefty dose of bitterness as well to back it up, which keeps the finish clean and incredibly light for 11.1%.
Mouthfeel is relatively full and sticky, but the bitterness cleans it off nicely.
Overall, this is an excellent DIPA. Perfectly done in the currently popular style of fruit-forward, light-bodied, high-abv, sweetness, etc. Awesome.

12(355ml) tall, skinny can. Copper orange aluminum with typical Sixpoint artwork. Green and black on a white field. Poured into a stemmed Port style/ipa glass.

A - orangish dark golden color. Glowing and hazy. Bright white head poured with very good size leaving behind a ring of lace trailing with nice stick.

S - big tropical fruit, candied mango and pineapple. Sugar and caramel malt with a bit of resin and hop spice. Alcohol esters tickle the nose but is very well balanced so far.

T - gushing tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and a candied light fruitiness. Resinous hops taste crazy fresh and fruity. Sugary caramel malt plays a key roll in the insanely balanced flavor. Alcohol creeps into the finish but is a smooth hop ride. Outstanding

M - big and full bodied. Lots of intense flavor and almost crazy drinkable. It's dang smooth and gushes the mouth with wonderful flavors. Coats very well and the texture and thickness is out of this world. Easy to get carried away considering this drinks nothing like the abv it packs.

O - hot damn, do we have a winner or what??? I still have 2-3 favorite dipa's that have stood the test of time, but geez is this thing close. I mean, Sixpoint have a real stud of a Dipa with Hi-Res. It has the flavor and complexity with a world class balance that will only turn heads. This should in no way be a limited release. This is a thoroughbred race horse of an ale that should be slotted right in to their rotation. Better yet, can this jewel year round. It's just a stunning work of art from the Big Apple.
