3.7/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Its deep, rich, and murky cider orange body is a telling sign that this means business. A finger's worth of light tan head slowly forms on top, displaying decent retention for such a high alcohol content. Thick, tightly knit patches of lace follow the beer down the glass.

The name of this beer says it all. Resiny, gooey, sticky hops leech out of the glass. Notes of sappy pine needles and candied grapefruit are made prominent. A fairly hefty bready malt character does well at bringing attention to itself amidst this pile of resiny hops.

Sticky and refreshingly bitter pine needles lie like a bed across the tongue with a light sheet of bready malts placed on top. The former makes its way to the front of the tongue while the latter peddles to the back of the mouth. A quick flash of caramel pops up in the middle. The lingering bitterness is raw and has a metallic twang to it that instantly became more notcieable once I spotted it.

This is one of those full bodied, sticky DIPA's with a slightly syrupy feel to it, and that's exactly what I was in the mood for tonight. For the style, this is well balanced, but that's coming from a hop head. Quite easy to drink at 9.1%.

This is a well crafted, weighty DIPA. With that being said, for me, this was nothing special. It's straightforward and the metallic bite it carries threw me off a bit. I've never had a bias towards beer in a can. In fact, I've really enjoyed several other offerings from Sixpoint. But for this one in particular, its packaging only retracts from the beer. The thought of it being oxidized crossed my mind but the staff at Premier said this can was part of a new shipment. In the end, I'd say it's worth a shot but don't expect it to blow your socks off.

4.08/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From a can stamped "drink by 7/13/14".

A. Light golden amber appearance with a white, frothy head of two fingers that ever so slowly recedes into a full covering skim. Lacing is perfect.

S. Dank, slightly soapy, whey-like malt - not much in terms of hop aromas other than a hint of pine.

T. Starts off malty with that whey-like flavor carrying over from the nose. Moves quickly to resiny pine. Finishes with building, lingering hop bitterness. Alcohol is hidden quite well.

M. Nice creaminess that doesn't get in the way of drinkability.

O. This is another great beer from Sixpoint that's not far off from Hi-Res in my book. Has a little less sweetness and more hop bite than Hi-Res making for a more classic tasting and easier drinking DIPA.

Best by 7/13/14.

A - Light golden ale with a huge thick head that stays there for several minutes. Lots of lacing.

S - Caramel malt and light pine from the fresh hops they dry hop with

T - Sweet, light caramel, grain, a light fresh pine taste as well. Doesnt taste super hoppy or complex but its smooth and easy to drink for 9.1%. Really dont taste much alcohol at all.

M - Medium-Full body. Really nice and smooth. Milk carbonation

O - A really smooth, fresh hop, easy to drink, light Double IPA.

Date on can says best before April 27 2014. Not so fresh, but a beer given to me from someone I know who was on a trip traveling in a state that carries Sixpoint beers (Score!)

A - Hazy bright golden when held to the light with lively carbonation and decent two finger white head. Leaves nice lovely lacing.

S - Dank Pine, caramel malt, tobacco, sweetness.

T - Sweet and bready, followed by a light piney bitterness that lingers.

M - Medium body and with a nice smooth body to it. Nice amount of carbonation that seems to keep the flavors moving across you palate correctly.

O - A really enjoyable double IPA that really is easy to drink for being over 9%. Wonder what it would taste like fresh, however the beer is really enjoyable. It goes down almost to easy, with no sign of alcohol. Another must try for IPA lovers, and I promise you will not be disappointed, cheers!
