BEER INFO

Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Once our eyes were opened to the potential of the hop cone, we couldn’t be stopped. With a laser focus, we magnified the hop factor, and pushed the boundaries of flavor, aroma, and perception itself to create HI-RES. It’s Mad Science.

The appearance is a golden yellow to amber colored body with a two finger white foamy head. There is a light lacing that displays a white color and clings slightly. The smell has a super citrus bittersweetness. The taste is bittersweet all the way through with a super nice juicy citrus aftertaste that leaves a dry finish. The palate sits about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability that wants to gulp not sip which leads me to say: 11 % really? I don’t see it, wow. Carbonation sits just right on the mouth and tongue as its harsh enough to display the proper characteristics of a pretty good DIPA. Overall, wow, Sixpoint, I would say you guys knocked this one outa the park!

Look-4. Nice head, some lacing. Lemony cloudy
Smell-hoppy but reqsonably so for my tastes. Aromas are easily dealt with
Taste-little after taste that's OK. Overall I think I catch a tad of sweetness that, again for my tastes, detracts a tad.
Feel- ok as I swirl it around my mouth.
Overall---lots of brews out there and I am glad I had this one to try but I would not be likely to buy it again.

12oz can into a pint glass. best by 7/12/17.

clear golden yellow body, small white head, decent enough lacing.

nothing on the nose at all, nothing good, but nothing bad either.

tasty beer indeed. good strong hop bite, thick, almost syrupy, sweetness, from the malt. alcohol fairly well hidden.

close to full on the mouth, tangy, bitey, hop finish, with a strong sweet wash.

Overall, enjoyed the battle between bitter and sweet. both strong, and nicely balanced to this palate. upon reflection, bitterness just about won out.

Clear dark golden in color, thin white head. Good lacing. Strong hop aroma - pine, floral, resin. Taste is fairly bitter, dominate hop flavors, light malt flavor. Sticky mouthfeel.

Pours a deep gold to amber with a foamy white head that recedes into a nice ring around the glass and laces well. Smells of butterscotch, Chardonnay, pine, and grapefruit. Taste follows with a nice citrusy sweet bite. The feel is smooth, rich ,bold, oily and sticky. Absolutely wonderful if you'd ask me. Overall, this is a wonderful TIPA with aspects of a Barleywine, and am sad this will most likely be my only one. Cheers!
