3.73/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a fresh can into a snifter.

A: Pours a nice hazy orange copper with no head. Some light lacing.

S: Mostly citrus (graprefruit, primarily), with hints of pine. Some sweetness, apple-like.

T: Starts with a Saison-like malt profile; some hints of pilsener malt. Finishes all citrus with a nice bitterness; quite boozy.

M: A tad flat, but fairly crisp and drinkable.

O: Nothing special. Purchased at a specialty store with the likes of Old Raspy, and as such, expected something great. A solid DIPA but not something I'd buy over most others.

Best by 7-13-14

Appearance: A Beautiful amber, Honey like almost glowing appearance. Very pretty.

Aroma: Whoa! Floral, grapefruit, pine resin, honey, biscuit, tobacco, citrus, pineapple, slight rum, I could pull aromas off of this for hours!

Taste: Oh yeah, just how the aromas lead you to think this will taste. Big slap of bitterness followed by just enough malty sweetness, but not too much. AMAZING.

Body: Even better than I remember it. I know that they extended the boil time a little and I think it was a good move. I could swirl this around my mouth forever.

Overall: One hell of a DIPA, a go-to for sure. I think that their "tweaks" on this recipe were for the better. Everything I look for and more in a Imperial IPA. Well done Sixpoint.

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.

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!
