4.2/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz bomber into a stemmed tulip glass.

Pours a deep, hazy copper with 1-2 fingers of creamy, off-white head that falls to a rich, creamy collar and nice lacing. The nose is a blast of piney, resinous hops, with floral, spicy notes along with some sweet caramel malt, toasted. The taste starts with sweet caramel malt, toasted, bready but transitions to sweet, sticky citrus hops and finishes long and dry with good old American bittering hops. The body is rich and creamy with nice carbonation. This is a really nice, balanced beer; as it warms, the bittering hops really start to take over.

3.83/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Rusty orange with a fine mist of floaties and crusty off white film that rims and speckles.
Skunk, dried apricot and orange compote nose.
Rock candy and blonde caramel with tangerine, resin, pine sap, herbal hops.
Sugared orange hard candy finish and merciless nettle bitter linger that doesn't end.
Almost medium, chewy, oily, only slight burn.

By the numbers: I sure do believe the 103 IBUs, the 9.1% is mostly buried, and the 9.3 SRM seems a bit generous - it's darker than I'd expect. The nose is a bit stewy.. Expiry 23.Aug, which is neither old nor super fresh which is why I don't get why this isn't... more. The bitterness hits hard (90 Minute comes to mind) especially for a "balanced" relatively sweet East Coast DIPA. But it's not especially bright or dank or oily - dry hopping not in evidence on aroma or palate, and doesn't go for citrus - to cut through the brown sugar so I'm not really sure what this is trying to be.

Can I wish a 103 IBU DIPA were hoppier? Undistinguished, in the end.

I keep wanting to love Sixpoint and keep being underwhelmed.
