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

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Off-white head, moderate to low retention, on a copper body with some haziness. Lacing is clear and quick to slide away. Aroma includes peach and persimmon with some apricot and some malt sweetness in the background. Taste includes some caramel sweetness and some hop bitterness but far from the amount expected, given the name and style. I actually checked the date of the keg to make sure it was fresh and it is from 12/2012. No issues there. My nose and palate seem to be working correctly, so I suppose that the beer is just a bit lacking in the "resin" department. Kind of disappointing on almost every level.

Beautiful Amber color with a thick and fluffy head with good retention.
Delicious tropical aroma with resin, hints of grapefruit, passion fruit, peaches, pineapple, simply a fruit salad.
Very fruity and intense taste, but also strong on the malt with a resiny, piney, citric hoppy kick.
Aftertaste is quite dry and bitter, resiny, lingering mostly the piney hops.
Full body with good carbonation with tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 9.1% was a master of disguise here.
I had it before, but never had the opportunity to rate it, and even without the first surprise it felt even better. Excellent beer making extremes to balance. Not a beer for the ones who like Adjunct lagers with low mediocre hops that needs to be drunk stupidly cold not to feel the taste (or off-tastes) of it.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at Old Line Bistro in Greenbelt, MD out of an 8 oz pint glass.

A: Pours a clear amber hue with a 3-finger fizzy head that quickly dissipates into a wispy glass.

S: Piney hops and dark caramel aromas come through on the nose.

T: Sweet caramel with some pine hops mixed in. Alcohol present but masked by the malt.

M: Heavy body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent imperial IPA – needed more hops in my opinion – came through too much on the malty side.

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.

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.
