A. Golden color with a hint of haze. Nice head with resiny sticky brussels lace that takes a scrubby to get it off the glass.
S. Wow. In your face juicy hop burst, guessing, citra, galena, centennial....amazingly fresh!
T. Sweet maltiness with huge citrus notes and alcohol warming.
M. Thick full body very smooth, honeyish.
O. Leave it to Six point to creat a numericaly balanced double ipa 11.1ABV 111IBU's with an SRM of 11. If you are a hop head an appreciate the ABV this is for you.

Pours out a with amberish/ golden color with a pure white head with good retention but not too much laceing.

The first thing that hits the nose is big apricot and nectarines, followed by the big booziness that an 11% beer brings to the table. You can tell right away that this is going to be a big beer. Hints of cilantro and what I can only explain as a sharpie marker comes into affect as it warms.

Starts with a mixture of piney/citrusy, alcohol soaked hops. Sweet tropical goodness hits the tongue with a slashing of bitter hops, however the sweetness of the alcohol subdues the true flavors of hops, disappointing me somewhat. A bit lemony tartness hits the tongue as it finishes.

Full body, very sticky and slick. Incredibly smooth actually. Pretty impressed as its easier to drink than the alcohol would imply.

Overall a decent imp. IPA, however the booziness of the alcohol pretty much dominates this beer causing the true flavors of the hops to be shaded. Pretty disappointed to be honest after reading such good reviews about this beer. Definitely a hoppy beer however its so unbalanced that I wouldnt suggest it to anyone.

Regardless of score, this is not a great beer.

It is of course, pretty.

But it smells of booze.

It tastes of booze.

It feels of booze.

It is of booze.

Not good, not tasty. The smell may get you drunk, but Sixpoint is better then this. Too much booze, way too many IBU's.

4.19/5  rDev +1.2%

Vibrant rusty orange color. Crystal clear. Poor head retention with no lacing leaves it looking flat within a minute.

Herbal and citrusy aromas, like a rooibus. Pine to a lesser extent.

Juicy mango and papaya. Fusel spice. Sugary sweet.

Juicy and sticky mouthfeel. A light astringency.

A very good DIPA. It's big and boozy but the tropical flavors offset it.
