Poured into a tulip glass. 1-2 fingers of head dissipate to a lace. Sticky legs! The color is a brilliant orange.

S: piney resin aroma that is relatively subtle. There is a hint a sweetness.

T: Grapefruity and lemon from hops, a hint of honeysuckle and somewhat balanced sweetness on the malt backbone.

M: Bright, crisp, hint of oiliness, quite drinkable.

A great beer.

I have to say, I have had this a few times.... and was not sure what to make of the first few.... but the more I drink it, The more I crave it... this stuff really grows on you.... at least it did with me.... apperance is a hazy copper tone with a marshmallow like head.... lacing is thick and foamy ...aroma is like that of resin.... (reminds me of high school)taste is of citrus and hops, leaving you quite dry... but yet craving more... Great Job...

12 oz can. BB 28NOV2012.

It pours a hazy orangeish amber with a fluffy white head that recedes with some industrial-looking lacing.

The smell is decent, though it reminds me of like a hoppy wheat beer or something. A lot of banana, clove, and bubblegum in the aroma. It has a nice fresh hop scent but the variety is super like bubble gum candyish.

The flavor is reminiscent of a wheat beer as well. It has some nice fruity esters and a potent malt bill. There is some tangy citrus acidity. The bitterness is medium with some pine flavors, but not too much. It is just missing something.

It is okay, but it has a ton of "off" flavors that really don't belong in an IPA though they work a little.

12 oz can served in snifter. The appearance is a hazy gold/orange with a thin layer of white head. Not much in the way of head retention. Some lacing is left around the edges. The nose starts with a bold wave of resinous (imagine that!) hops pair with a bready, cracker like malt profile. Notes of citrus rind and candied tangerine are present along with a touch of honey. The taste starts with some delicate malt sweetness. This comes in the form of graham cracker and caramel. This is followed by an assertive bitter hop profile. Notes of pine needles and grapefruit come through as all 103 IBUs come through as the beer finishes. The mouth feel is moderately heavy with high carbonation. Overall, this is another hoppy tongue bruiser from Sixpoint that has pretty good balance and a well hidden ABV. Also, it is notable to mention that at 8.99 a 4-pack, this one is a great value.

I have been drinking this at the Amsterdam Ale House on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Overall a very good double ipa from a great brewer.

Dark orange color with a nice amount of carbonation that stuck around and left some lacing behind. Pretty cloudy but not completely opaque.

Aroma was quite citrusy. Some pine and malt but mostly citrus.

Flavor was pretty bitter but well balanced. The flavor elements balanced nicely with the alcohol, which is pretty strong.

A great beer.

Can: Poured a deep hazy orangey color ale with large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of pine and resin notes with sweet malt base. Taste is a nice mix between some pine and resin hoppy notes with some solid malt backbone with quite a lot of sweetness. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well done though I prefer My IIPA a bit more dry.

A- pours from the can a hazy orange copper with a two finger eggshell foam, and alot of lace.

S- tropical fruit and citrus as well as some moderate pine and alcohol.

T- Lots of grapefruit rind and oine, mango and pineapple, some biscuity malt, but mostly hops with a alcohol bite.

O- a very nice dipa here, the abv is hidden at all but it packs some great flavor and the mouthfeel still makes this a very easy one to put down easily.

Served in tulip pint.

Apricot colored body with a voluminous white frothy head of 3 fingers. Pretty nice retention and lacing. The head is really rocky and composed of microbubbles, as though this beer were served on-nitro.

Smells of lots of bready malt, piney resin, and some crisp citrusy hops-- I'm betting there's some simcoe up in here!

The taste is the same-- dry bready malt upfront with some pine, resin, and citrus hop notes. Some dry bitterness asserts itself on the finish, but not as much as I'd hoped. A little boozy alcohol warmth as it lingers.

Feels creamy and thick, again I'm reminded of a beer on nitro. Oiliness coats my teeth.

Overall-- not bad, but not one I'll be picking up regularly.

picked up a four-"box" today in WI.

a: nice yellow /orange color, decent tiny white bubble head.

s: can't identify the hops without cheating, but it is a nice upfront cloud in your face.

t: taste IS very delicious, will be a great summer beer, can't say the big IBU over-powers me like some other big beers, but I will buy it again.

m: typical of style.

o: heard about the hype, thought I would give it a try, doesn't live up to hype, but worth buying again when I want a tasty double IPA, plus easy to pack in the cans to a backpack, with no glass hazards.
