An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

Pours from the can a dark copper with a slight haze. Forms a finger high soapy white head that has below average retention. Layered lacing is left on the glass.

Resinous pine is first on the nose with a backing of grapefruit pith. Underpowered aroma overall. Malt is caramel sweetness with some nutty subtleties. Alcohol comes piercing through with a bit of red fruit and more dank resin.

Caramel and biscuit-like malt carry a huge burden to manage the resinous hops, orange citrus second with a wave of alcohol on its heels. Very green and dank flavor accompanies the heavy load of bitterness in the wake of the alcohol.

Medium body and carbonation. The alcohol and bitterness gradually lift from the palate leaving a drying sensation.

Resinous to be sure but there is alot of mild citrus and earthy flavors from the hops as well. You feel all the 100+ IBUS as well as the alcohol. Good DIPA, could be cleaned up a bit and the hops more centralized to the big pine and dank resin that the name promises.

Pours a light apricot skin pour and decent white merengue head with leggy lacing.

Wonderful hop and pine scents. Honeydew melon, mangoes and dried apricot. Really a super fresh quaff.

Sharp hop on the sides of the tongue then lingering well into the cranium. Well balanced and mellifluous malt sweetness on top of the tongue. Mild dankness and a bitter mustiness. Alcohol noticeable but damn it works in this beer.

Medium body and creamy.

Watching the Blues today on NBC vs the Blackhawks and I gotta use Doc Emerick's line here...'My Goodness'. I've had this on tap also-just as great. Why oh why has this not been in my lineup. Not a far cry from his older brother Hi-Res. Love what Sixpoint has been doing. Tremendously tremendous! And by the way...Stanley Cup Champions Blackhawks won!

Solid IPA. Golden color. Not overwhelming in smell or taste but packs a punch. Refreshing taste, goes down smooth and easy. Better than average, high in alcohol but you can't taste the Alcohol. Had this beer on tap but it tasted like they might have had it a while. Worth a try.
