look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a goblet from the can, the ale was a copper orange color with a slight white head. The aroma does not overwhelm. In fact, one has to try hard to find the hints of the citrus smell. This is not a deal killer though. The initial taste is a wallop of hops. Though lacking somewhat in the citrus notes, it does provide a dull thud of a hop bomb. It is like an anvil of hops landing on your tongue. Notes of grapefruit and a hint of peach are present and certainly leave an impression, though this is not the overwhelming hop impression. What is striking about this Imperial IPA is its smoothness. While the blitz of flavor in many imperials move at a pace that requires several sips to detect all the notes, this one goes slow. Coating the tongue nicely, it lingers in the mouth for overtime. A potent ABV of 9.1% is a nice bonus.

This is not an outstanding imperial, but it is certainly one that I can drink again.

Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Amber with a slight haze body to it, has a off-white body with a very light orange tint to it rising to maybe 1/3".

Smell: Light hops, but very very light.

Taste: An over abundance of hoppy and floral taste, very rich and impressing. It is bitter dont think this is one of those doubles that is a little spiked with caramel. A man's drink.

Mouth: Medium and very smooth, I put the glass down and still feel the after taste I truly can't complain.

Overall: Very impressing, the only part I didn't like about this beer was finishing it, now for round two. Salud!

Big thanks goes out to trader who sent me this one as an extra in a recent trade! Served from can into a balloon wine glass. Poured yellow orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, alcohol, spices, earthy hop, subtle citrus, and spicy hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, floral, spices, spicy hop, earthy hop, and alcohol. It had a medium feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. The alcohol notes on this one was fairly evident. There was definitely a huge hop presence in this one, but the alcohol covers a lot of other tones up that I picked up on, but couldn’t place. Worth trying if you get the chance, but that’s about it.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of citrus and caramel that are followed by a strong piney hops bitterness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid 2IPA to drink for a long time.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a can into a tulip glass

Pours a dark red/amber, with a great thick tan head.

Aroma is hoppy - mostly piney, with a little citrus to top it off.

Taste is more sweet than bitter, surprising for the style. Good balance, but that's not always the best thing for a DIPA.

Mouthfeel is a little thick, but good overall. Nice carbonation.

Overall, a good DIPA, with a ton of hop aroma, but could definitely use a little more in the flavor. Just a little too sweet for my liking.

First beer from Sixpoint.

Pours out a pretty dark amber/ruby with hints of orange and a 1 finger off-white head.

Smells of piney, earthy hops and caramel malt sweetness.

Very sweet for an Imperial IPA. Right away there is a strong taste of the caramel malt with a biscuit like flavor as well followed by the piney and earthy hops. Not very bitter for over 100 IBUs.

Overall, not a bad beer, but too sweet for my taste.

Poured from a 12oz can into two mini pint glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

Best Before 20JAN2013

A: Pours a bright, coppery-gold with a bit of haze. One creamy finger of light-orange foam forms on top and displays decent retention. Lacing was a bit light but carbonation was just right.

S: Big noseful of spicy and piney hops. As it warms up some grapefruit and pineapple make their way out as does some mango and tangerine. Nice carmel malt balance.

T: As above. Fistfulls of hops thrown into its' malty stew. Slightly minty alcohol flavor as it warms.

M: Slick and quite oily. Would be a pretty slippery mess if it weren't for the prickly alcohol presence.

O: A quite nicely balanced DIPA. We thought the serving size was perfect for the abv.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Nose: Mostly pine resin and some citrus (grapefruit). Definitely some Belgiany, fruity esters. The malts seem to play a solid balance. It's got some sweetness, but doesn't quite start to encroach on barleywine turf.

Appearance: Good quarter inch of head sticking around. The color is a deep red, almost ruby - it's darker than your typical double IPA.

Taste: Somewhat imbalanced. The first flvaors are sweet and bitter, but the finish is all hops, with some strange banana notes. The finish is somewhat astringent and bitter.

Overall: Not bad, not great. Definitely not craveable. A lack of balance kind of kills it. And the out of place esters don't add to it.

12 oz can was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a two finger that has reduced and left some nice lacing on the glass. It is a hazy orange yellow with some tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: bready and crystal malts, clean aroma, citrus, grapefruit, and citrus aromas. Malts smell nice, but the hop aroma is bery subtle. Hoping for a big taste.

Taste: Very tastey for a DIPA. IBU's are not even noticeable for being that high, which is extremely remarkable. Bitterness is there, but it is balanced out nicely with the caramel and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: easy going, smooth, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, delicious, and the booze is hidden very well.

Overall: Very smooth anf drinkable DIPA. Love it how theycome in 12 oz cans. Will be enjoyigng this sleeper more in the future.
