It's a good beer, with one small flaw.
It truly does taste like a classic double IPA, which is a good thing. I had no way of knowing whether this 4-pack I bought was actually fresh or starting to lose the hoppy flavor. I found this in a local Spec's, and the guy in the store told me they just had gotten Sixpoint beers few weeks ago.
Having said that, the taste is very good except that it seemed that the alcohol was coming through a bit too strongly. I'd have to give this beer another go someday soon to see if it's just a one-time phenomenon.
I'd drink this again, but since it's coming all the way from New York, and it seems like anything from New York City is ridiculously overpriced. $9 for four-pack? I'm undecided if that's too much or not.

A: Hazy, dark copper colored-beer with a white head. I get a good amount of lace; the head dissipates pretty quickly.
S: Smells are a fabulous melding of fragrant floral and citrus hops plus rich, caramel maltiness. I could happily smell this all day long...
T: The taste has a sharp bitterness of the citrus/fruity hops, as in grapefruits, but also has the malty caramel flavors noted in the aroma.
M: Full-bodied, the beer finishes with the same themes of resinous (ha!) hops and malt undertones.
O: Bold DIPA with a great balance -- loved it!
