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

A- Amber body with a thin off-white head. Not quite clear, but not cloudy.

S- Piney hops mostly, some spicy citrus notes.

T- Hops, more piney than citrusy. Some slight malt presence to balance it out, but very hop forward.

M- Stickiness from that hops that stays around. Some carbonation, not the smoothest beer I have had but not bad for the abv.

O- Pretty good iipa, not the best I have had, but solid.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks Cbeer88 for this

a: pours an orange color beer with a small off white head. The head is thin and fades quick. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Very little carbonation bubbles.

s: some floral hops, but mainly the smell is dominate with alcohol and slight maltiness

t: piney and slight citrus hop flavor. The malt comes through a little, more of hard candy like. More bitter than hoppy. Alcohol is more noticeable in this than beers of similar style and ABV

m: carbonation is a little lighter than I would like. It leaves a sticky sweetness, rather than a cleanness or sticky hop residue like I enjoy from IPAs

o: I enjoyed this overall and would not mind having this again. However, at this time I cannot say this is a top IIPA. BUt with IPAs I feel like they are slightly different each time you have them, so again, I would like to revisit this sometime.

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

A - Pours a copper orange with 2 finger slightly off white head that leaves sticky lace rings around the glass.

S - Allergies suck this time of year, but I get citrus hops, some light citrus fruits such as grapefruit, and some piney aroma.

T - Up front is some slight citrus notes that lend themselves on the sweet side and towards the end is when the hoppy bitterness comes into play. Very nice balance.

M - The mouthfeel is quite heavy almost like a good stout. Carbonation is medium and the bitter flavor of the hops lingers around after each sip.

O - I keep coming back to this beer. I don't know why, but it keeps me interested. I'm on about 5 4 packs in a month. That is a lot of just one beer for me. It must mean something.

Just had this one with dinner in my Dogfish snifter.

The clear copper and voluptuous off-white head were a fantastic surprise upon pouring this 12oz can. The nose is full of all the things I look for in hop heavy beers, from spices to grapefruit to (most important) pine. The taste follows suit, but with a considerable malt backing, with great bread and caramel flavors. Overall, this 103 IBU beer is quite balanced, and I'm a big fan. I liked other Sixpoint offerings, but this one blew me away.

Pretty good DIPA. Purchased at Grape and Gourmet in Va Beach. Tall skinny 12 oz can. Pours an orange, lightly hazy color with a medium sized white head. Head retention is ok, lacing is extensive, nice thick rings.

Aroma is a bit mild for a DIPA, some citrus hops.

Tastes good. This is a balanced DIPA. Some big citrus hops balanced by bready malts. THe balance is enough that you can enjoy both but this is not a headshrinker for diehard hop-heads.

Mouthfeel is crisp and rich, bitterness is not that pronounced. The alcohol is well hidden.

This one is good but I like more hops presence and bite in a 9% abv DIPA.

12 oz can, with best by date of 26Nov2012 stamped on bottom of the can.

appears a clear orange amber color. 12" off-white head, thin covering stays. very hoppy aroma, mostly citrus flavors - orange, mango.

taste is heavy on the same citrus hop flavors dominate the test- not bitter though. just enough biscuity malt to provide a base. sticky mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation.

overall, a good DIPA

12oz can poured into a snifter. Bottom of can says best by 11/23/12.

A- Pours rather clear, and a dark amber color. About two fingers worth of a frothy off-white head that sticks to the sides of the glass.

S- Smells awesome. Tons of grapefruit and overall citrus characters. Also some piney resin notes as well.

T- Up front is really like drinking grapefruit juice. The back end of the taste finishes with the piney resin notes, as the name suggests. Great hop characters with a nice malty finish.

M- Tart, bitter, very drinkable. Finishes dry. Something I could drink alot of. The alcohol is well masked as well for 9% ABV.

I like this one, and am excited to try some of Sixpoint's other offerings, as they just started distributing to my area. This was my first Sixpoint'er and a great one to start. Reasonably priced too, I paid about $9 for 4 cans.

Another treat from Dino! Price Stick still on, good deal!! Poured from can to pint glass the beer pours a amber gold with a decent 1 finger white cap with little retention and lacing. The nose is big and resiny like the name suggests More earthy pine than citrus but its a hop bomb. Hints of toasted caramel malts. Similarly the flavor is hoppy and bitter and aggressive. Earthy pine dominated with hints of citrus with an underlying caramel malt sweetness. Medium bodied the beer finishes crisp and clean with a lingering bitterness. Overall, good! At the price if this was more readily available I'd drink a lot of it, lol.

Can into Boulevard tulip

A- Orangish with generous off-white head. Pretty clear for a beer called Resin.
S- Floral and citrus hops, sweet malt.
T- Sweet, big hop bitterness, little hop flavor.
M- A little thick, a bit undercarbed for my taste.
O- Decent beer, nothing special, wouldn't trade for it again.

A: Apricot in color just ever so slightly hazy, white head on top that dissipates fairly rapidly into a ring.

S: Jam packed with hops. As the name implies there is a huge amount of resiny pine aroma. Some grapefruit notes as well as a nice bit of caramel or burnt sugar in the finish.

T: Pine resin and grapefruit dominate the flavor with some earthy notes following. Some caramel notes in the middle, the finish is a big hit of bitterness with some herbal flavors.

M: Medium in body, the carbonation is fine in texture and medium in amount. There is a slight creaminess to the feel. The finish is a little puckering with the bitterness.

O: Overall a really nice IIPA. The price point for what you are getting is really the huge selling point. The price on tap was incredible, and the can was decent as well.

12oz can purchased as part of a 4-pack from somewhere localish.

Poured into an Mayflower nonic, formed a 1/2" orangey beige head over the cloudy similarly hued brew. Head lasts well, with lasting lace. Aroma is juicy pine and citrus hops.

Taste is sweet upfront, a peek of citrus in the center, and ample piney bittnerness through the close, with a lingering alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good also, esp for the style. Leans more towards flavor than bitter for bitter's sake, which is fine by me.

Enjoyed in a tulip glass

A: pours a very hazy golden color which is quite bright and pours with two fingers of very fluffy off white head which has a great texture and lingers nicely before dissipating and leaving a nice amount of sticky lacing all around the glass
S: nice citrus hops, very herbal and fresh also has a slight early note
T: o yea, that's a pretty delicious DIPA and from a can too! nice hop notes, deeper hop notes not so much citrus as i had expected but maybe simcoe or titan? not sure but definitely has a great depth and really drinks smoothly for 9.1%
M: relatively gentle carbonation, drinks creamily, leaves the mouth nice and dry as well as sticky
O: really enjoyed this brew and will absolutely be picking up more of it this summer for some out door adventures, id say it compares to torpedo in cans but not quite as tastey

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

a big rocky dirty white head rises three fingers tall and settles rather slowly leaving large clumps of lacing on the glass. resiny pine greets the nose with bready and caramel malts having its back. tastebuds are greeted with a full onslaught of thick oily resin hops. luckily the malts are well balanced in this beer to help soften the bitterness. there is also a herbal garden flavor on the backend. mouthfeel is medium body with an oily feel. carbonation is very well done. and the bitter end is short lived. overall this is a really good dipa, but for me i prefear more citrus than pine.

A- Hazy orange with a half-inche white head. The head doesn't last long; begins to turn into frosty capping after about a minute. Lacing is nice. Looks solid.

S- Aroma is big on pine with light nuances of sweet malt and a touch of fresh grass. Not as massive as expected but very nice.

T- The taste follows the aroma. I expected Sixpoint to take an Over-the-top approach to the 2x IPA. Not so. Very deep and complex. Big bitterness. Soft lemon. Pine sap. Light malt. As suggested, very resinous. Subtle alcohol creeps in near the end as well as a lasting bitterness. Not the most flavorful IPA in the world, but very refined and enjoyable.

M- Medium bodied with a super slick mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. This aspect shines for me.

O- I expected a little bit of a heftier beer here, but this is nice. Very piney with substantial bitterness and light citrus notes. Might not seek out, but wouldn't be opposed to trying again.

Serving type: on-tap
