Clean, crisp, and delicious. At 103 IBUs this guy comes with a kick, but in all the right ways. Beautiful looking beer, it's like a super model of IPA.

Dankness for days! The malt backbone sufficiently props this one up to handle all of those hops that they jammed in here! Surprisingly drinkable (can't really call it sessionable) although it drinks like a much lower ABV brew.

Decided to give Sixpoint another try owing to the founder's/owner's imploring me to do so. He was right. Sixpoint has improved dramatically since I last tried them. Here goes:

A: Very nice. Clear orange-amber with a sufficient head. Leaves a lot of lacing on the glass as well, indicating good protein content.

S: Boatload of pine and grapefruit; like a traditional WC IPA. Smells exactly like Sierra Nevada's Hoptimum, which is one of my favorite beers. Some of the other reviewers are noting additional tropical scents; I don't detect these, but this might be because the beer is about 4 months old. The smell is still great, however, which is a tribute to the beer's longevity.

T: Very solid beer. Actually, quite good. Pine and grapefruit backed up with caramel malt. I also detect sweet honey. The beer is very well-balanced between hops and malt. Great hops with a cloying, honeyed sweetness. It remind me so much of SN's Hoptimum, one of my favorite beers which has sadly been retired. I'll probably start drinking this one more.

F: Perfect. Full-bodied but smooth. Glides down the tongue.

O: A great DIPA - like a true WC DIPA. Shane was right; they've improved dramatically.
