4.4/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light apricot skin pour and decent white merengue head with leggy lacing.

Wonderful hop and pine scents. Honeydew melon, mangoes and dried apricot. Really a super fresh quaff.

Sharp hop on the sides of the tongue then lingering well into the cranium. Well balanced and mellifluous malt sweetness on top of the tongue. Mild dankness and a bitter mustiness. Alcohol noticeable but damn it works in this beer.

Medium body and creamy.

Watching the Blues today on NBC vs the Blackhawks and I gotta use Doc Emerick's line here...'My Goodness'. I've had this on tap also-just as great. Why oh why has this not been in my lineup. Not a far cry from his older brother Hi-Res. Love what Sixpoint has been doing. Tremendously tremendous! And by the way...Stanley Cup Champions Blackhawks won!

3.91/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

4.11/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.5

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.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I scored a four pack on a visit to Ohio. It pours a beautiful clear gold, with a nice high white head. The smell of pine, cirtus and pineapple hits your nose as soon as the can opens. The flavors carry over from the scents, with a sweetness on the front end and a slight bitterness on the back. For a beer that shows off it's 9.1 ABV and 103 IBU, this one is smooth and very drinakable. I should have nabbed a case!
