4.23/5 rDev +3.9%
From a 12 oz can (best by September 20, 2014) into a nonic.
A-The beer is a hazed honey color. The head is quite sticky and dense with lots of clingy lacing on the glass and good retention. It looks resinous and oily.
S-The aroma is big on the hops as you would expect, but there is a nice balance of toasty, caramel malt flavor. As for hops, I get some orange zest, pine, leaf, and an oily aroma with a moderate amount of sharpness.
T-The taste is also nicely balanced between hops and malt. The hops are more leafy, oily, and piny than many IIPAs these days, but there is a nice, bright bit of citrus (orange juice) in there. A nice toast balances the hop assault. As the brew warms, a medicinal bit of alcohol creeps in, but otherwise the alcohol is well-concealed.
M-In a word, resinous. The body is medium to full in heft with a creamy, smooth carbonation and oily coating feeling.
O-In a world full of IIPAs, I found this one to be well above-average. I like that it is not a super citrusy me-too clone, but it does not beat you up with too much pine and bitterness, either. I mostly enjoyed the heavy, oily mouthfeel (although it did get a little old by the end of the can). This is a solid IIPA that I would definitely drink more of...if we could get it in Colorado

Pours a cloudy light copper color with over a finger of off-white head. The hops in the nose are pretty mellow and accompanied by a touch of pine. The hop bitterness is definitely the feature of the flavor profile. This offering is rather full-bodied as DIPAs go, but the maltiness does not manage to poke through the hop onslaught.
This is a good but definitely unbalanced DIPA. I’d recommend going straight to Hi-Res which is a notch above in more than just ABV.

4.05/5 rDev -0.5%
Aroma: Pine and cedar notes immediately up front. Some caramel sweetness as the beer warms up. I get a little bubblegum which is kind of odd. Not German hefe bubblegum but definitely an artificial gummy aroma. In the background is some lemon zest character. Amazing layered complexity.
Appearance: Slightly hazy deep amber pour. Low tan head that dissipates into a sticky, sudsy film.
Flavor: A touch of the caramel sweetness up front that quickly loses out to some juicy orange, lemon, and grapefruit flavors. This is again followed by a wave of earthy bitterness. Balance is firmly bitter. Finishes dry and aftertaste lingers with more earthy hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Tastes slightly oily and a little bit of hop-derived puckering astringency.
Overall impression: Hops seem a bit subdued to be deemed "Double IPA". That said, I do enjoy it. Dangerous given the ABV. Seems more like an American Barleywine to me. Regardless, I enjoy it immensely and I will have another.

Poured into a tulip
This one pours a dark reddish amber color with about an inch of rocky beige head. Good retention here with some sticky lace. Grapefruit in the nose with fresh cut grass and lemony hops. Nice dry hoppy aroma.
Tropical fruits on the pallet. Cantelope comes to mind with some hints of slightly sweet malts in the background.
The body is nice and light with adaquite carbonation. Overall a well done DIPA. Sixpoint churns out a nice hit with this one.
Really good fresh hops with a good supporting malt backbone.
