Another IPA I'd deem almost juicy in flavor, this one leaning toward a more piney, hoppy flavor with subtle citrus notes that really round it out. This one has a bitter kick, but very palatable. I'll admit to not having poured it, because I kind of like the hipster-esque "Microkeg" cans and enjoying the beer itself too much to pay attention to that. Another one of my favorite DIPAs.

A pale orange color with little head and carbonation. Not much lacing. Suspension noted in glass. Great smelling beer with the usual grapefruit IPA aroma. Superior hop taste with the grapefruit flavors and slight citrus. An excellent mouthfeel and nice aftertaste on the palette. I really enjoy this IPA and at 9.1% and 103 IBUs, I don't get the alcohol at all. Really easy drinker for it's strength. Another fine IPA I would keep around. BEER IS CULTURE. From a can dated 12AUG2017. Must try all the other SIXPOINT's I find. RESPECT Earned!

Pours a rich amber, mildly hazy, out of an adorable little energy drink can. Smells sweet and citrusy, some sort of orangecicle cream aroma. Delightfully fruity and full bodied, malty sweet but well balanced by the hops. Not that NEIPA juicy sweet, just a genuine DIPA malt countered powerfully by bitter, fruity hops. Smooth and full in the mouth, this is a big ol' beer and one that is a delight to take down. I'm pretty sure this is my first Sixpoint brew and it is a gem, one of the finest DIPA I have tasted. My only complaint is that the can isn't bigger.

This is one of the best regularly-available beers in my neck of the woods. Appearance: Slightly cloudy orange amber color. Aroma: Hint of floral and citrus notes. My nose ain't so sensitive so on to the Taste: Hoppy yet not really bitter. It reminds me of a milder version of DFH 120 Minute IPA. I don't know what hops either beer uses but I would not be surprised if there are some in common. Feel: Neither too thin nor notably viscous. It's fine. Overall: I like this beer a lot.

Clear amber colored body, three finger white head settles to frothy cap, good coverage of lacing.
Pine, citrus aroma.
Sweet taste of citrus, resin of pine, pith bitterness at the end.
Sticky, medium mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Well done DIPA, alcohol is well hidden.
