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

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.

12 oz can into pint glass. Oh my god. No. I do not like this beer!! I thought I would like the super pineyness, but its like sucking on a teet of pinesol. Very oily, mechanical, industrial taste. Glad I can say I've tried it, but never again! Maybe this is what pine tree's themselves drink.

Pours a cloudy light copper color with over a finger of off-white head. The hops in the nose are pretty mellow and accompanied by a touch of pine. The hop bitterness is definitely the feature of the flavor profile. This offering is rather full-bodied as DIPAs go, but the maltiness does not manage to poke through the hop onslaught.

This is a good but definitely unbalanced DIPA. I’d recommend going straight to Hi-Res which is a notch above in more than just ABV.

Clear golden pour with vanishing head. Smells of honey and piney hops. A nice malty sweetness with fresh grapefruit citrus hop flavors. The finish is sweet with a touch of spiciness to it and lingering grapefruit / astringent bitterness. A bit syrupy in the mouthfeel. The relation to Hi-Res is apparent and I think Resin is the better beer. I would prefer a drier finish and a cleaner finish. Not a bad "IPA" but not my favorite.

Once again Sixpoint hits a home run, finding beer distributors through their app and then getting the logs ordered was lengthy to initially establish but brewery response has been terrific.
Great beer and already tapped my third keg on my 4 tap kegerator....
Great imperial IPA, smooth and crisp, I have it up against a 90 minute DogFish Head and it is neck and neck, complete hops profile difference and great to have both actually.

Picked this up in Totowa, not having a beer from Sixpoint in quite some time. While I've had so many IPA's and double IPA's lately, a good one never seems to go out of style or get old. This wasn't a standout beer but it was solid enough to fit into that category and the fact that this was a canned beer that made me forget that it didn't come out of a bottle was a plus on top of how relatively easy it was to quaff.

The pour to this was good as this beer had a rich, amber hue, full frothy head, and nice rings of lacing left after most of my sips. Not a strong aroma to this but there was a fair amount of pine and (of course), resin. The mouthfeel had these notes in it, along with a waxy mouthfeel and more tropical notes of papaya and mango to offset the astringent grapefruit that dominated here. This was just a bit too sharp and bitter for my liking and it was carbonated a bit too much as well. The hop bitterness wasn't too long-lasting but that's only because the booze took over with the aforementioned fruit flavors in the aftertaste.

While not an overly strong beer, this packed enough of a punch that I found feel the alcohol and warming effect long before I polished this off. Sixpoint has some great offerings and while this certainly wouldn't be a bad choice to grab, there are better examples from Stone and Victory on the shelf now. In such a crowded field, the can is the more prominent way that this stood out. Worth a go for hopheads or someone who wants a West coast fix from a beer brewed back east.

Serving type: can

Appearance: Can't comment on the appearance of the fluid because it's in a can, but the package the can comes in is conspicuous and the can is not much more proper. Could be an expensive Heineken or Yuengling.

Smell: Skunky. dank. Like an unsuspecting heady nugget.

Taste: Glorious. As I am drinking this so claimed "craft" beer out of a can, I'm checking around for the cameras. Is Ashton Kutcher going to pop out around the corner? I take another sip.

Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation. Drinking the beer at a very cold temperature, and feeling somewhat dehydrated. The liquid is of inhuman essence.

Overall: Does Sixpoint make other beers? Must. Find.
