Dankness for days! The malt backbone sufficiently props this one up to handle all of those hops that they jammed in here! Surprisingly drinkable (can't really call it sessionable) although it drinks like a much lower ABV brew.

Decided to give Sixpoint another try owing to the founder's/owner's imploring me to do so. He was right. Sixpoint has improved dramatically since I last tried them. Here goes:

A: Very nice. Clear orange-amber with a sufficient head. Leaves a lot of lacing on the glass as well, indicating good protein content.

S: Boatload of pine and grapefruit; like a traditional WC IPA. Smells exactly like Sierra Nevada's Hoptimum, which is one of my favorite beers. Some of the other reviewers are noting additional tropical scents; I don't detect these, but this might be because the beer is about 4 months old. The smell is still great, however, which is a tribute to the beer's longevity.

T: Very solid beer. Actually, quite good. Pine and grapefruit backed up with caramel malt. I also detect sweet honey. The beer is very well-balanced between hops and malt. Great hops with a cloying, honeyed sweetness. It remind me so much of SN's Hoptimum, one of my favorite beers which has sadly been retired. I'll probably start drinking this one more.

F: Perfect. Full-bodied but smooth. Glides down the tongue.

O: A great DIPA - like a true WC DIPA. Shane was right; they've improved dramatically.

Poured into an IPA glass from a 12 oz can. Best by 7/15/15.

Color is clear honey gold with an enormous white head. Retention is good and there is a lot of splotchy lacing. Smell is tropical fruit - mango, pineapple and melon - along with some pine and a bit of sweetness in the background. Very nice. Flavor lives up to the name - palate is blasted with resiny citrus rind hops followed by the tropical flavors from the nose. Finish is clean and bitter and lingers forever. Body is light with moderate carbonation. Maybe a bit on the thin side. Drinkability is dangerously high for a 9+% ABV beer.

Overall, a delicious beer that made my mouth happy. Its hard to believe it has such high IBU and ABV, because I think I could drink several of these. But I'm sure I'd pay the price if I did...
