12oz can poured into a Dogfish Head Signature glass.

A - Pours a rather clear amber mixed with a bright gold color. A very bubbly head tops this off, 2-fingers in height, with decent retention. Thick, soapy lace coats the glass in broad strokes.

S - The nose is something interesting and off the beaten path for IPAs. It's citrusy, but not very much so, with a heaping amount of pine and hop spiciness. It has a significant amount of caramel backbone to it as well. It actually reminds me of Clown Shoes in a way.

T - The taste is unusual. Not in a bad way, but I find myself coming up short at ways and words to describe this beer, even after being pretty well-versed in IPAs up to this point. It's hoppy and bitter, but not in the West Coast style, and the hop composition is something foreign to East Coast IPAs. The most noticeable flavor is a bold pine resin, followed by the subsequent bitterness of the hops. Some subdued grapefruit follows which is mixed with the sweet kick from the malts, including a strong caramel flavor.

M - Mouthfeel is medium- to light-bodied with good carbonation. This is fairly light for the style and even comes off as thin at times. Even still, it is smooth and finishes clean.

D/O - Drinkability is high. This is an IPA that sort of falls within Limbo for me. As a certified hop-head who loves the over-the-top West Coast IPAs, I still find myself reaching for the glass constantly. This is addicting and interesting, and breaks up some of the redundancy that IPAs can occasionally bring.

$ 1.99/12 oz can at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Can BB 08May15 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Head small (2 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing to a broken 2 - 4 mm layer
Lacing excellent – complete thick rings and stalactites of mostly small bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor begins with a fairly light piney hop presence which fades to a somewhat chalky bitterness with a short hang time. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, slightly oily, lively carbonation

Another pretty good beer from Sixpoint.
