BEER INFO

Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

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.

That body is just as shiny and colorful as the can! Left a nice amount of lacing in the glass too!
Dank hops, peaches, and citrus on the nose.
Hoppy and bitter, with a nice amount of malt sweetness on the end.
So tasty and not a hint of the 10.5% abv even as it warms.
Need to find find some more of this in my area STAT!

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: The color of the can mirrors what is inside quite well, which may as well be as the beer is extremely clear. A decidedly dark, golden bronze and a finger of white, soft and pillowy, glazed head. Very effervescent.

S: Dank and tropical-- passionfruit, tangerine, and mango--fruits. Strong sweetness from what might be Carapils and Crystal malts, but it needs that body to uplift a piney bitterness; can a beer smell too dank? Alcohol dominates if one gives it a long and deep inhalation.

M: Crisp on the front end. Smooth and slick as it goes down. Moderate car level and body.

T: You can taste the hop juice that has crystallized into a sweet and resinous nectar. Not a mouth puckering bitter; it is a beer of substance behind the hopping. Honey biscuit, orange, mango, green papaya, and do I sense something like strawberry. Piney lime bitterness gives it a 2.5/5 pucker rating, but one that lingers for quite some time. Drink this fresh where you can get it.

While this is blammo with the hops, it is still better balanced than either Devil Dancer or Palate Wrecker. It is also more IPA than 120 Minute. Highly recommended for hop heads - it is my new favorite IIIPA.
