Poured from a tall skinny 12 ounce can into a snifter glass.

A: A golden orange color with a nice 2 finger head on a nice pour. Glass lacing is almost not there.

S: Lots of pine and fresh citrus with some orange and tangerine. Slighty grassy with some bready sweetness.

T: I got the orange and tangerine right form the start with some other citrus flavors, pineapple and some grassy notes. The sweetness is biscuit like with a deeper pine flavor taking over with bitterness at the back end. This is all Sixpoint with some of their signature yeast flavors poking through on the finish. Good beer.

M: Full, prickly, bitter and very little alcohol. Carbonation was good.

O: Wow, a really good beer from Sixpoint, I'm impressed. A really easy drinking DIPA that could be dangerous.

My whole issue with them has been the Lion contract and consistency. If Sixpoint would ever take total control of all their brewing, in house, they could be a top notch brewery. Still, I'll give them props as this one was fantastic.

The cans look like redbull cans.

A - Pours an almost clear amber with a two finger eggshell head.

S - I'm getting pine, resin & orange peel. There's a citrus like sweetness that lingers.

T - Pine hits you in the mouth with a good dose a bready malts. And the end brings you a good helping of hop bite.

M - Medium bodied & medium carbonation.

O - A pine hop bomb of a double IPA. Dangerously drinkable.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Gotta love the Red Bull-style cans employed here. This stuff pours a clear golden-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit rind, pine resin (how appropriate), thickly earthy and spicy greens, mild toffee, and sweet flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, with the emphasis on the earth, spice, and pine, and with some light balsa joining the party as well. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a refreshingly earthy hop-bomb, one that definitely uses plenty of hops but does so without burning the tongue and without completely ignoring the concept of balance.
