look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

On tap poured into a tulip glass, nice head and thick, sticky lacing that lingers. A golden honey color.

Smells are of hops, straight up hops, earthy pine, with a hint of citrus.

This one is piney, hops are up front with loads of pine and hops flavor. I detect a hint of citrus and not much of the malt at all. The pine lingers long after a swallow.

Chewy full bodied mouthfeel with slight carbonation, kind of thick.

Overall, a decent DIPA, I would definitely categorize this as Northwest IPA, it lives up to its name, the piney hops are a bit too much to my liking and stick around with you for a while. Well made, a little unbalanced and not my favorite DIPA

Pours a non see through apricot hue with a sudsy two finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is sweet waffles,resinous piney hops,caramel candy,liquorice and light citrus,the mouthfeel is full bodied and lightly carbonated with tastes of caramel candy,blood orange,a touch of toffee and finished with a resinous sticky piney hop bitterness and overall it's quite an approachable IIPA that comes in a cool little can and I'd buy again cheers.

Crack! Glug! Something so satisfying about opening a can of finely crafted beer.

Appearance: Nice golden color, short white head, leaves good lacing

Smell: True to its name, resinous hops up front, some pine and grapefruit too

Taste: Again, some nice resinous hops are the first thing to hit your palate, followed up by pine and grapefruit, true to the nose. Nice hop bitterness, and then some caramel malts, some biscuit in there

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation, sweet finish

Overall: This, like other Sixpoint brews I've had (been a little while), is fantastic. Highly recommended to anyone who likes IPAs. Also as a side note, I kinda like the tall skinny 12oz can. I know it has no effect on the brew inside, but it is kinda cool. Maybe just the novelty of it.
