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.

This is a phenominal beer.

A-beautiful clear golden color with a hint of orange
S-first crack of the can and the smell is glorious, nice and hoppy, citrus. I dead to pour it out and the majority of the aroma quickly left, leaving behind a sweet alcohol smell
T-the hops shave the alcohol really well making this dangerously drinkable. Sweet to start and rounds out with a satisfying bitterness that is smooth and mellow
M-carbonation is light and not overpowering, leaving room to appreciate the sweet hops
O-this is a great beer, I highly recommend. Be aware that the 10.5% creeps up on you. People have compared this to Heady Topper, while I can see some resemblance, this beer is great in its own right and deserves a try.

What an exceptional IIIPA. The drink-ability is phenomenal. High alcohol is masked well by the balance of hops, look is orangish and hazy. Overall just delicious, will buy again.

Surprisingly clear with big citrus aromas and minimal hop bite (for having 115IBUs)

Pours really clear with an orange/honey color with a medium creamy head. Has a citrus hop smell. Tastes of grapefruit and oranges with a sweet malt base. Has a nice clean citrus hop finish. Overall nice and crisp.

One of the best high-octane IPA's available. No annoying aftertaste and sits well for the duration. Aroma and look are right on target.

Appearance: pours an orange to amber hue. a big three finger or so white frothy head. moderate retention but huge foamy lacing all on the sides. strong clarity and brightness.

Smell: strong resin, pine and some citrus. malty to caramel sweetness.

Taste: opens with a syrupy, caramel sweetness. hop resin takes over. more bready to toasty malts play in, along with hops with notes of pine and some citrus. some honey-like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: syrupy, and resiny. sweet and with bitterness but not quite what you'd expect with 115 IBU. more sticky than lingering bitter.

Overall: certainly a bigger version of Resin, but I think Resin is the more ideal strength. the increased maltiness is almost too sweet, I like the syrupy feel but I think it needs a bit more hop bite and linger.
