Crystal clear amber body. Spotty and sticky off white head.
The smell is of light candied fruit.
Taste = Overripe tropical fruit with a cotton candy finish. Pineapple hit. Faint alcohol on the back end through the pipes.
Nice medium mouthfeel, with lower end dense, silky smooth carb. Rich and juicy.

Overall - A splendid Sixpoint beer.

Didn't like this beer at all. Don't understand the hype here. Very medicinal and teasly couldn't pick up the hops.

Poured a substantial (for an IIPA) head into a Spiegelau IPA glass over a stunning, deep gold body. Fragrant piney nose. Taste: a sharp twang of resiny hops whose bite is undercut by a lovely, rich sweetness. Savory, medium-bodied mouthfeel. This beer is a golden treasure, and one of the best IIPAs out there.

Look is pure gold, love it. However for my taste it was entirely too sweet with not enough hop profile for my personal taste buds.

I don't typically mind boozy beers but this one took it to an unpleasant level in my opinion. Too sweet, too much alcohol...tough to drink the whole can.

Poured this beast from a 12oz can into the Speigelau. Beautifully clear, golden amber with 2 fingers of (slightly) off-white head. Aromas of pine, a nice slap of a resiny/savory note, Hop bitterness, a definite hint of grapefruit as it warmed, and some lemon/lime hints as well. Complex nose that makes a tour of the hop spectrum. Flavor= definite hop delivery vehicle. GF juice and big pine on the front, bitterness took over on the middle, and the resinous bit on the end. The flavors matched the aromas. Classic DIPA mouthfeel to me... lingered around (with those beautiful hop essences) for ever. This is such a big, complex winner.

I picked this up at Golden Crust -enjoyed chilled from the 12oz can in an IPA glass

The color is dark golden with voluminous white creamy head with very fine bead and thick lace sticks on the glass. The smell is intense dank hop aroma with slight spicy and tangy tropical smell with subtle floral alcohol ester with a light citrus scent. The feel is smooth and resinous with moderately bitter texture with medium high carbonation with semi-spicy element with mild sweetness with semi-dry finish and light alcohol influence.

The taste has a very hop forward presence with tropical and lightly bitter citrus profile with herbal and dank hop qualities with mild malt sweetness in the middle. There is a light spice taste with alcohol and somewhat candy sweetness in the finish alcohol coating the mouth and resinous hops but a good amount of aroma and flavor continue through the finish with slight piney quality. Overall I think this is a top notch Imperial IPA-lots of hop flavor matched only by a slight alcohol presence but mild for the high abv this contains -well brewed Sixpoint!
