I've had this from tap at the brewery and in bottles, but I'm currently enjoying the bottled version.

Heavily bubbled, strong, frothy, white head. Cap remains throughout the pint and lacing is strong and thick. Light copper, clear but with a tiny amount of haze.

Smell is by no means dank or overly resinous, just a clean hop aroma and some maltiness backed by some esters. The Citra really comes through on the nose.

Malty sweet and caramely. Strong, but not puckering, bitterness with some heavy handed hop flavors. I have a problem with most IIPAs. They tend to be either way too sweet or way too hoppy. Lot 6 hits the nail dead on the head. Super balanced with a clean yeast flavor.

Not quite a thick mouthfeel but this is medium to even full bodied. Perfectly carb'd and easy to drink. It's hard for me not to give this a pefect score. It's one of the few IPAs/IIPAs that I actually like.

12 oz.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange golden, eggshell head is a quarter inch and fine, retains well.

Smells of sweet biscuit malts mixed with fruity and floral fresh hops. Some honey in there too.

Tastes of orange citrus, clover honey, grapefruit hops, and sweet biscuit malt.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very nice double IPA, above average in all regards and very worth trying. Compares favorably to all but the very best stronger IPAs.

No enjoy by date. Poured into ale glass.

A-Poured a foamy dense white head that receded slowly back to the clear copper body.

S-Grapefruit, mango and hop resin dominate and mix together awesomely in the nose.

T-Citrus forward beer. Hop resin and bitterness in the finish. Delicious throughout. A nice malt base balances out the hops and adds a sweetness to the finish.

M-Medium mouthfeel with a sweet finish. Lower carbonation than I would like.

O-I love this beer. Both the taste and smell go hand in hand with one another and make for a highly drinkable and enjoyable imperial IPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Orangey-gold hue with a two-finger cream colored head that eventually fades to about an 1/8" - 1/4", leaving behind an absolute blanket of lace down the glass. Gorgeous... Although the hue of the beer is a little lighter than I was expecting, but it's not enough to deduct points.

S: Tons of citrus fruit. Grapefruit, hints of orange rind. A little bit of mango thrown into the array of scents. A little bit of floralness (is that a word?) underneath the citrus. Some pine and grassiness. A light touch of alcohol spice, which wasn't unexpected in a DIPA. Complex and lovely, but not as intense as I was hoping.

T: Not for the faint of heart... Tons of hop bitterness and in-your-face citrus. A little bit of pine following suit, with a nice flowery finish. Lots of hop bitterness lingers afterwards with some boozy heat.

M: Tons of heat from the booze, but it's never overpowering. A controlled carbonation is above average, I'd say, and definitely close to a full body. Slick across the palate. Drinks easily, but definitely not sessionable. This is a sipper, no doubt.

O: Lot No. 6 is another brew that makes me feel like I'm scoring too high, but every time I revisit a category to try and "correct" the rating, I'm reminded of why I scored it so highly in the first place. It's not the most unique brew I've ever had, but it's simply just... effin' great! A lovely beer to kick back with after a long day of housework.
