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

Appearance- pours a slightly hazy amber in color wtih a two inch frothy white head. Very dense and creamy lacing coats the glass.

Smell- pine resin dominates the nose balanced with grapefruit and a slight carmel sweetness.

Taste- Nose carries over with pine resin up front followed by grapefruit and mango. Finishes with a brown sugar like sweetness and a hint of heat from the alcohol.

Feel- medium body, creamy and dry.

Overall- very impressive showing from west sixth. Really a top notch double ipa

Poured from a growler into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. The pour is very hazy, apricot-colored, and sports a thin head that quickly dissipates down to practically nothing. The nose is quite nice, with big juicy, fruity hop notes of oranges, over-ripe peaches, and grapefruit.

Medium-full body and a very firm, creamy feel. Lots of sweet malt and bready notes up front, some marmalade, and a nice blast of fruity hop notes that are not terribly abrasive or intensely bitter. This beer has more than enough malt to support the hops (in fact, it could probably stand more hops without seeming out of balance). Big flavors of oranges, lemons, grapefruit, and peaches abound. All are supported by firm bready malt notes, giving toast and marmalade flavors across the palate. Despite the strong malt presence in the background, I don't get any sweet medicinal flavors. It's surprisingly balanced. Really nice finish on this one too. Lots of nice oily, sticky hop notes linger strongly.

I don't know if it was the growler or what, but if this beer was a bit more carbonated my scores on appearance and overall would have been higher. Despite the drawbacks, it was very flavorful and enjoyable. I hope West 6th continues to work on this for future packaging in cans.

Crowler dated 12/07/2014, thrown in as an extra from a true KY BA, thanks Jason!

Straw-yellow elixir poured into SA glass. One-finger, thick, white head, copious lacing.

Very nice aroma of citrus fruits with the pineapple and mango at the forefront. Subtle pine and malt round out the scent.

The citrus fruit are the star here, with a bit of spice mingling with the hop bitterness. More of the malt comes through on the back end.

Medium body, smooth bitterness a bit of alcohol bleeds through.

A really nice DIPA. Lacks the punch of the big boys but a nice brew for this up and coming KY brewery.
