12oz. can poured into a curved pint glass.
A- darker than most DIPA's, it's a deep amber with orange and ruby highlights. A very nice finger worth of dense khaki head sits on top. A little lacing down the glass.
S- This just oozes aroma. Hop forward, but extremely complex, it runs the table of pine, citric, and earthy/floral hop aroma. A little caramel and toffee notes are there as well. The high point of the beer for me.
T- Starts with a nice sweet caramel/toffee malt note, but is quickly cancelled out by a big hop bite, and the rest of the sip is the malts trying to come through, but being beaten back by the bitterness. Hops are largely piney and floral, but there is a deifined orange and apricot flavor under it all that really ties this back to it's single IPA brother, Bengali Tiger. The bitterness really lingers on this one.
M- Actually kind of thin for a double IPA, and I really do like a bit more creaminess in this style. Very dry, bitter, and astringent on the backend, which I could use a bit less of. (gotta be Simcoe hops in it, which I'm not a huge fan of)
O- It's good, but I like other doubles much more. Certainly wouldn't turn it down, but when it comes to Sixpoint, I'll stick with Bengali Tiger

pours cloudy, dark orange, little to no head.
Smell is fruity as in apricot and peach. Some of the alcohol is picked up. Bubble gum. Light vanilla scent as well.
The name of the beer tells the tale of the first taste. Resinous, bitter bite along with caramel and slight toffee and a little alcohol burn. A bit of peppery spice. Heavy hop bitterness dominates this one. maybe some of the floral variety.
Thick and heavy mouthfeel. very long finish. Medium carbonation.
Im not sure how I feel about this one. Its heavy and bitter for sure but tough to pick up on much more. It does have the malt balance. I prefer some more citrus in my DIPAs but this is ok for a change up. tough to have more than one in a sitting. Would have again but not going to go looking for this one.

On tap at the Local Taphouse during Sixpoint AleStars session.
Pours a pale golden colour. White webbed bubbly head. Lace is nice and clingy. Looks OK.
Smells lovely. Sherbet with rosewater, lychee and lime. Musky, chalky, vanilla. Sweet, tangy, resiny, good.
Taste is resinous, pretty much from the start. Touch of caramel malt, with some vanilla notes. Resins come on midway, big and developing more bitterness on the back, big and resinous but never quite reaches that horrible ashiness, just huge resin flavour without the ashy bitterness. Quite amazing.
Body decently full. Bit of pull from the hops and quite a big booze note. OK.
Very impressive IPA character, enormous without the palate crushing edge. Beautiful.
