An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a hazy copper hue with a two finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a resinous piney hop coupled with an earthy caramel.

The taste was obviously driven by the abundance of balmy piney hops. A full caramel malt tempered the flavor a bit.

The mouthfeel was full with a lingering bitterness.

Overall a tasty DIPA with a uprising attempt at balance.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from the slender green 12 fl oz can into an Ommegang tulip at low altitude in NY.

A: Pours a substantial creamy head with a nearly opaque honey-colored body. The head has great retention considering the ABV and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Overall, it's a good-looking beer.

S: Resin is a good descriptor. Piney hops character dominates, with subtle caramel malt character and a bit of alcohol in the background.

T: Piney hop notes up front give way to a sweet malt body. The finish is bitter, but not overpowering. Surprisingly well-balanced considering the hop character and 103 IBUs listed on the label. Some alcohol comes through on the finish as it warms.

M: Full-bodied and well-carbonated, with a slightly syrupy feel. Fits the flavor profile well.

O: Another solid offering from Sixpoint. IF you're looking for a double IPA with a piney hop profile, this is a good option.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Nice golden color with a tinge of amber

S: Very floral, citrusy. All hops.

T: The citrus of the hops hits you right away, some maltiness takes over in the middle, and then it finishes with a lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied, average carbonation

O: If you love hoppy flavor you will enjoy this beer. I would have liked a little more balance to the hops, but overall I liked the beer a lot.

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

A: Pours golden yellow, with rising carbonation,a foamy inch thick head, and good lacing.
S: Hoppy with citrus tones, mostly grapefruit.
T: Bitter, malty, hoppy. Grapefruit flavor more muted than expected.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation. A little sticky.
O: This was recommended as the next best thing to Heady Topper. Having had better tasting DIPA's recently, I hope that this is not true.
