It's big and challenging.
Cool 12 oz can, design is great on all the Sixpoint stuff. This one looks more like a redbull, vs their other 16 oz tallboys. But I wouldn't want more than 12 oz of this big 9 percenter.
Pours amber and cloudy with a nice off white head.
Aroma is hoppy, not incredibly intense, but fresh with a good amount of alcohol. Pine, lemon, citrus. Reminds be of a homebrew that I dry-hopped with whole leaf Sorachi Ace.
Taste is big, quite bitter, with a noticeable amount of alcohol. I'm not sure I would call this balanced, but maybe I'm just not a fan of the style. I feel like I've had more balanced imperial IPAs though. There's some malt sweetiness, though it's definitely not malty. Mostly bitter and alcoholic. The hops contribute a piney flavor.
Mouthfeel is smooth, a bit thin.
Being from Brooklyn, I wish I loved everything Sixpoint made. But they are hit and miss for me. This one's a miss. Not bad, but not one I need to drink again. I really like Bengali Tiger, Righteous Rye and Otis. The last couple I've tried - Autumnation, Diesel and Resin - I haven't been crazy about. In my opinion, they're not well-balanced, but they're just very hoppy and alcoholic. It's not hard to make a beer like that. Balance is what makes a beer great.

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
