Recommended by former coworker at my local pacakage store.
Glad i took his word for it;
A-Dark orange slightly hazey amber
S- Not a very pungent one at least on the nose; mint and hops faintly whisper
T- Spicy, minty, pine sap, with a sweet malt with round it off but still ending with the bitter bitter resin of hop and alcohol; I love it.
MF- Heavy and slightly carbonated. The alcohol feeling lasts.
Overall a very interesting Double out of a can nonetheless a good smack in the face and ruin on the palate from one of my favorite plants the Hop. Havent had my palate this bland since Stones Ruination

4.43/5 rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
On tap at the Fat Cat in Chicago.
Appearance - Mildly Hazy Orange with minimal carbonation. Decent lacing on the sides.
Smell - Piney/Citrus Hops, Malts, Toffee, with a hint of caramel.
Taste - Malts, Piney Hops, Malts, Caramel and Toffee. Not quite as strong as I had anticipated, but pretty good nonetheless
Mouthfeel - Somewhat light and smooth with very little carbonation.
Overall - For a Double IPA, it's not what I would call "strong" but as a stand alone IPA, it's very delicious and easy to drink!
Serving type: on-tap

3.88/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured into a Sam Adams Boston Lager glass. Dark red or copper color. Clear in appearance with many ultra tiny carbonation bubbles that lead to a large two finger head that is tan colored and creamy in appearance. Head recedes fairly rapidly and leaves a huge web of lace.
Smell is on the earthy side. Grass, yeast and mild sweet malt. Some light citrus, overripe orange or blood orange and a bit of alcohol.
Taste is tongue lashing bitter citrus. Yellow grapefruit. A bit of alcohol in the taste too.
Mouth is bright. Carbonation is on the spritzy side. Finish is long and tongue coating wet.
Overall I thought this was a pretty good DIPA but not a world class one. This was my first Sixpoint brew and am pretty impressed with this one. Thanks to TIMMYJ21 for this one.

4.1/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12-ounce can into a tulip-shaped Duvel glass.
A: Bright, hazy golden color with an orange tinge and wisps of yeast beneath a billowy, three-finger head of tightly packed, ivory carbonation bubbles. Lacing is quite nice and head retention is solid.
S: Loads of citrusy, tropical fruits and a blend of peppery, spicy and herbal hop notes. Pineapple, orange rind, guava and lemongrass tickle the nostrils.
T: Juicy malt sweetness up front throws some white peppery into a mix of Valencia orange, pineapple and peach. The mid-palate carries some maltier caramel notes before being crushed under a wave of bitter hop resins. Bitterness ranges from musty grapefruit to sharp, acidic cattiness. Fruity malts pop up before a resinous, bittersweet finish wraps around the tongue with a warm, boozy embrace.
M: Bright and refreshing up front, the hop resins make handiwork of the sweet balance before becoming a bit hot and bitterly puckering.
O: A very bold, fruity and brash DIPA, Resin embodies all that is wonderful about high alpha-acid hops washing away the sweet palate of a big beer. The 9.1% ABV is there, but almost feels smaller beneath the soft, tropical fruitiness of the brew. Make no mistake, though, this is a big, sweet, bitter triumph of a brew.

12oz can from Bessette's Canton NY for 3$
Appearance - Hazy copper colour with a large size fizzy/frothy off-white coloured head. There an average amount of carbonation and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, hops, oranges, pineapple, caramel
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste hops and malts mixed with pineapple, apricots, and oranges. There is also a caramel sweetness and some pine/resin. It finishes with a pineapple/caramel aftertaste with a decent amount of lingering bitterness.
Overall - Definitely the best Sixpoint beer I've had so far. It has a nice amount hops and a good dose of fruitiness. Well worth trying if you happen to see it on the shelves.

12 oz. tallboy can with a best buy date of Apr 2013 (!!!) poured into tumbler.
A: Typical DIPA. Orange with a finger thick white head. Clarity and retention expected with the style.
S: Again...average. Strong bouquet of piney and citrusy hops.
T: The pine hops are pretty prevalent here. The citrus stays in the background, along with a semi-sweet malt base. Very bitter.
M: Slick and medium bodied. The 9.1% abv is nowhere to be seen. The bitterness makes it slightly more difficult to drink at warmer temperatures.
O: A good, but not great, DIPA. It's a bit old school in it's one-dimensionaless. It has a strong bitterness without much else to back it up. If you love the strong, piney hop bite, then this DIPA is for you. Otherwise, it's interesting to try, but there's not enough drinkibility to make it a mainstay in the fridge.
