This is really quite a stupendous canned brew. Hops dominate its essence.
A: Gorgeous gold with good clarity, mild carbonation and lots of off white head. Nice lacing.
S: Citrus, fields of grass and floral notes, light breadiness. Hops!
T: Grass and grapefruit. Licoricey sweetness. A hint of alcohol too...
M: It's drinkable. Beautiful hoppy bitter aftertaste. Only a bit of alcohol bite. Crisp as hell
O: This is a great beer for tasting. A whole can of it will fuck up the drinker thereof pleasantly

Poured from a 12 red-bull shaped can into a pint glass. Purchased in Wyoming, RI.

A- Pours a hazy bright orange body with a really thick white head that reduces fairly quickly and leaves very little lacing.

S- Floral, citrus notes particularly grapefruit and lemon, resin, and pine.

T- Sticky resin and pine sitting on a sweet and spicy malt backbone. Some booze but not much.

M- Medium-thin body with medium carbonation.

Overall a decent IPA worth trying. For 103 IBU, the hops were surprisingly subtle and tamed. Or maybe my palette is just wrecked from tasting so many IPAs today.

12oz. can into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Take note other breweries! Use these style of cans! Much, much easier to ship than any other format of packaging!

Pours a 1 finger foamy white head with decent retention. Beer is a clear, dark copper. Lacing is stringy, spotty and thick with good cling. Very good.

Nose is sap, ethanol, cane sugar, and well, pine resin hoppiness. Moderately aromatic and enticing. I usually like the style to be a bit fruitier.

Opens sappy with huge resiny hop notes. Amber and cane sugar in the middle with some citrus and ethanol at the finish. Lingering, sweet hop notes in the aftertaste. Definitely true to the name.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth in the mouth and goes down dry. Finishes messy with a lingering aftertaste. Average. Aftertaste is a bit much on this.

Overall, pretty unspectacular. This beer represents its name very well in both the nose and flavor so if you're into the very sappy and resiny DIPAs, then this might be right up your ally. That being said, its not what I prefer in my DIPAs so this is likely the last time I'll enjoy this one.

A - Pours copper with a massive frothy white head. Leaves a great amount of lacing.

S - Lots of grapefruit, heavy malt, a bit of alchohol and grain. Slight mango.

T - Heavily piney up front shortly followed by a hige amount of malt. Banana and grapefruit work it's way in along with a bit of iron-like finish.

M - Medium slightly creamy body with moderate carbonation.

O - Overall, this was pretty damn good. Perfectly balanced and very drinkable for the ABV. I'd definitely have another.

Pouring to a hazy orange, this double IPA offers an assertive nose of citrus, pine, caramel, and grapefruit. The head of foam is significant and it holds together for a nice long time, leaving lace on the glass as you consume.

This beer has, as expected, a taste every bit as assertive as its nose would lead you to believe. It offers a big hop taste of pine and citrus that doesn’t quit, backed by a medium malty body that emphasizes some caramel notes and then finishes with a hoppy persona that just keeps on giving.

One can find a good deal of complexity in this ale, but one thing I noticed is that the complexity becomes more pronounced if the beer is allowed to warm up just a bit. There is already a good deal of flavor at normal refrigeration temperatures, but the taste becomes even better if the beer is allowed to warm to about 50 degrees. The alcohol also becomes a little more pronounced, but the other flavors are more noticeable and more flavorful.

Some may find this beer a little over the top, but I find it just about right for a member of the double IPA family. It isn’t too extreme, but it definitely packs in the hops and is memorable and recommended to hopheads everywhere.

12oz. Green Can. Freshness date on bottom.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a large fluffy white head. Good retention
and nice sticky lacing.

S: Pine, citric notes of lemon and grapefruit, sweeter as it warms.

T/M: Sticky hops, pine, grapefruit, other citric. bitter, alcohol, enough
malts to bring back the bitterness. fairly full bodied and smooth. More
of that alcohol feel. Slightly sweet. Big finish as it stays hopy and bitter
with the inclusion of some sweetness.

O: Well this DIPA is big and quit enjoyable to sip on. The straight forward
piny citric hops are great. The warming sweetness is a plus while the alcohol
can sneak up on you. A very good beer by Sixpoint.
