Reviewed from notes. Sampled on 2/20/14. 12 oz can poured into DFH signature glass. Best before 7/12/14.

A - Apricot in color with one finger of creamy, dense head that quickly dies to wisps. Extremely high clarity. Very nice tiered lacing.

S - Melon, honey, pine, ginger, booze, blood orange.

T - Citrus bite, creamy orange sherbet, sweet caramel. Finish is bitter at first, but mellows as it warms. Very little alcohol presence for a beer this big.

M - Thick for an IPA. Velvety smooth, slick feel.

O - Drinkable for 11.1%. Balanced sweet, citrus, and pine. I waited a long time for this beer and was pleased to get a four pack out of the single case my shop got in. While it didn't disappoint, it also didn't blow me away. I'm glad I tried it, but I'm not so sure I would get more than my $13 4-pack, even if I could.

Appearance - The expected golden copper color is present with a big fluffy white head. Lacing circled the glass as the foam faded.

Smell - The aroma is a little more floral than I would have expected. The hop aroma seems to hide behind the floral.

Taste - Not bad at all. This is an assault of hops! Grapefruit, grass, and sweet syrup come to the front with the pine laying in wait at the back of the tongue. The ale finishes dry and sour. Boy, does this one have some staying power at the back of the mouth.

Mouthfeel - Not overly thick, this fits the model of a double. The thickness lends itself well to the staying power.

Overall - I am surprised how much I like this one. I would certainly get it again.

Poured from a 12oz can into a stemmed tulip glass

Pours a clear copper, amber color with a couple fingers of persistent, creamy head that falls to a thick collar leaving behind nice lacing. The aroma is a blast of hops: pine, citrus (grapefruit and tangerines) and a bit of tropical fruit, as well as some nice toasted malt and some pleasant biscuit notes. The flavor is a rich, complex mix of hops and malt and all 110 IBU’s are present yet not overpowering. This is not a palate-wrecking hop bomb, but a well balanced triple IPA featuring juicy citrus fruit hop profile layered on a biscuit, bread malt backbone. It has a big body (maybe a bit to syrupy?) and good carbonation leading to a rich, creamy, oily mouthfeel. Overall, a delicious IPA, layered and complex.

Powerful. Alcoholic.

Liquor-like but one of most original Imperial IPAs I have I enjoyed, but it's too alcoholic for me to enjoy. Sip it like wine. After my 4 pack, spread out over a month (this is REALLY a palate wrecker!), I have lowered my review. Even tho I am huge fan of 6 Point, Resin, Bengali, Diesel, etc.

A: Like all six point a looker. Dense head, lacing, retention, clear amber body. Nearly perfect.

S. 3.75 a bit of tropical sunshine, but subdued. Juicy like the taste.

T. 45 Hip caramel candy. Hop candy. Heads up the sunny Cliff where hops twine the fence around the citrus grove and pines bow in the salty, briny breeze. Oily, dense, flavor packed.

Mf. Sweet clean liquor. How could a nectar be so bitter and sweet at once? Paradox. Love the brewer. This may be their best. A new fave. A new best DIPA?

The 11% sneaks up on you. Paradoxically good, but only if you go slow.

The beer poured a deep gold with a significant slightly off-white head. The aroma is very strong resinous hops with some citrus orange and a full sweet caramel malt underneath the in your face hops. The taste starts with a juicy citrusy hop bite with a huge sweet malt middle that ends with a resinous and piney hop bite. It’s that pine hop profile that lingers on your palate between tastes and helps mitigate the sweet malty base of this beer. The Hi-Res is hugely hopped and takes no shame in being what it is. It definitely carries a sweetness around that harnesses the hops, but I found myself enjoying the Hi-Res sip after sip.

On-tap at The Res in Waterbury!

A: Slightly hazy, deep gold in color with a fizzy big white head leaving behind a bunch of lace and a good ring of foam.

S: Booze, hops, greatness.

T: Great departure from the hop bombs and monotonous dipa's that are so common. This beer incorporates everything I used to expect from the style. Could even be a triple.

M: Thinner body than expected but massive flavor. Good carbonation and a heavy but delicious finish.

O: This is a serious beer. Not too hoppy, boozy, or sweet. a surprisingly enjoyable drink. Sixpoint continues to impress me. Big fan of this brewery.
