4.4/5 rDev +6.8%

Enjoyed this at Barcade last Saturday night after the Met game. It was their only cask and I've been meaning to try more Six Point when in the area so I went straight for a pint of this (only $4 before 8, good deal).
Poured a cloudy medium golden copper brownish and unremarkable head. Nose was hoppy and yeasty.
Thick, bold, hoppy taste with earth tones and a surprising breadiness. Very robust and malty for an IPA but the dry and bitter flavors were present as well. There is a hint of alcohol in the finish but overall it is remarkably hidden for a brew of this potency. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly cloying.
Terrific example of the style and also at masking heavy alcohol tones which sometimes puts me off big beers. Highly recommended if you can find it.
Serving type: cask

On tap @ Little Frankies in NYC, on "Sixpoint nite", this new creation upon arrival looks bold, strong and flavorful, it did not dissapoint! The look is a murky shade of dark almond, brownish plum, minimal head, but leaving nice ringed, fine lacing. Full bodied and bold, woody, smokey and vinious, hop crunch more then respectable. Very tasty, heady brew, leaving a long lasting hop glow on the teath. Well done SP, another fine fine brew.
