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

Glass: Heady Stemless (Why not?)

Pours a hazy golden in color w/ a 1/2 finger white head that left light sticky lacing. Aromas of pine, mango, and fresh cut PVC pipe resin. The flavor started w/ caramel malt sweetness up front, leading into a touch of mango, and finishes with moderate resinous bitterness. Medium bodied and somewhat lush, but needs more carbonation and guessing this was mashed in at around 152 degrees and maybe could have been mashed a bit higher to create a little fuller body. However, additional carbonation might be the only remedy needed. Pretty drinkable stuff.

Overall, good solid DIPA, but nothing mind blowing or really all that unique. I would drink this again without hesitation, but I would prefer more enhanced citrus notes and a slightly better mouth feel. In the end, good beer though from Sixpoint.

I really like the head on this beer... Great retention, but larger bubbles than I'm used to seeing from IPAs; but the lacing is fairly poor. The aroma is very floral and super hoppy but with a candy-like sweetness behind. The taste is great for the style, but this isn't my IPA. Too much of piney/resinous hop character. I admit that it is well balanced and has the great hop forwardness people enjoy in DIPAs; however, I just can't get into this beer. I find this beer a tad thin for a DIPA too. I do enjoy the hop bite on my tongue. I'll definitely suggest this beer for people who like more pine or resin or earth in their IPAS.
