God damn is this a tasty beer. Reminds me of a west coast dbl IPA while still maintaining Sixpoint's distinguishable style and class. A few of these went down real nice on a freezing cold night while I dreamed of cornucopias filled with fresh citrus fruits and the sun shining on my face.

12oz can poured into pint glass. Clear golden color; thick head settled slowly, substantial lacing; prominent citrus scent (if you like grapefruit hop flavor, you know you'll like this beer as soon as you get a whiff); crisp but there's some substance to the feel; grapefruit flavor profile, not too bitter with a hint of something sweet at the end. Overall: really good. Sixpoint says "it stings" but while this is very hoppy, it's got more nuance than just a hop bomb. (9.25)

Very boozy and, I'll keep it in mind, next time I plan on getting arrested. Seriously though, behind all of it is some underlying notes of peach skin and delicious red apples. This might not be for everyone given the aggressive nature, but there's a lot more to pull than alcohol, grapefruit and malt. This is super fresh, and I dig it. Can youuuuuuuu dig it?

I gave this one straight up 4s. It pours a light golden/amber. I did not get such a big head, but the lace retained throughout. The aroma hits me with resiny, citric and piny hops. As the drink warms, a boozy aroma takes over. The taste is for hops aficionados. I tend to prefer my IPAs to have a stronger balance between malty sweetness and bitter hops. This one doesn't. I mostly get a hops explosion on my taste buds with perhaps a slight hint of grapefruit. I also get a lot of booze. Nevertheless, I have rated it highly on taste because I get that the brewer is purposefully trying to create a tops heavy drink. Feel is medium bodied to heavy. The liquid feels heavy, chewy and viscous, yet the carbonation stings the tongue.
I love sixpoint and I am rarely disappointed. This is an intense hops drink that one has to be in the mood for. I wouldn't mind having again.
