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.

Beautiful, clear amber with a fluffy head. Smells like resin and sweet, syrupy pine needles. Some citrus. Taste is piney and weedy, hint of citrus on the end, sweet malts and a bitter backbone. Smooth and slick, moderate carbonation, thick-ish.

Slightly hazy with a bubbly head that diminished to a thin film. Streak lacing. Aroma is ripe fruit, citrus, caramel malt and some floral notes. Flavor is similar. Orange, butterscotch, fir tips, and apricot. Slight bitterness in the aftertaste, as the citrus and pine qualities of the hops lingers on the palate. Only a faint essence of alcohol. Juicy and resinous, but smooth and well balanced. An excellent beer overall.

Clear dark yellow distilled appearance (with lingering lacing.) Charismatic hoppy aroma followed by a HOPS-RES flavorful taste with only a slight bite feel after the swallow. This may be a deal breaker for a PORTER follower but for a HOP lover its OUTSTANDING. SixPoint become my GO TO!

Man this beer rock. Poured a nice beautiful orange color. Huge white head. The smell was incredibly dank. Taste was very piny and hoppy. If you see this on the shelf, make sure to grab it. It is definitely worth a try.

Appearance- Pours a beautiful shade of light copper/amber, with a fluffy head that lingers around, leaving a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell- Huge dank resin and weed aromas dominate the nose, with some pine and citrus peel on the backend, and a fair amount of caramel malt sweetness as the backbone to bring it all together.

Taste- Huge amounts of fruits like mangos, pineapple, and citrus combine with just enough of a piney kick from the hops to let you know that you're drinking an IPA that is not to be trifled with. Very sweet and malt forward, which is perfect to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Feel- Definitely full-bodied for the style, bordering on syrupy and sticky. This is a huge plus for me, but YMMV.

Overall- One of my new favorite DIPAs, and my first brew from SixPoint. This beer has ensured that they will have a returning customer.

Poured from tap into pint, minimal head, nice lacing. Clear amberish golden in the glass. Smells of caramel malt and pine. Taste is initially sweet caramel, with some pine/pinapple thrown in, fades into more pinapple citrus with a mild bitter finish. Sweetness lingers on the palate on the finish. Syrupy/viscous in the mouth, nice mouthfeel.
