Can poured into a tulip

A - A very attractive orange-copper color with a white head and minimal carbonation. Slightly hazy.

S - Big hop punch up front. Resinous hops, slightly piney. Pretty muted.

T - Resinous and piney hops up front. Some sweet malt in the background. Somewhat one-dimensional but executed well.

M - Shockingly clean finish. Just a tiny hint of lingering bitterness in a very pleasant way.

O - I did have this a touch past prime but I won't hold that against the beer. It was slightly one-dimensional but I believe this was the intention. Resin and pine are the prevailing flavors and it's quite enjoyable. The finish was shockingly clean as well. Well done brew.

Re-visiting the first dipa I ever bought, and the beer that got me into the ipa/dipa style. First, the aroma and taste are dominated by pine and then a little grapefruit, but mainly pine. This lends to a bitter dipa despite a sold malt backing. The malt consisting of some bread and some caramel sweetness. I must say while this is a good beer, but after a year of beer drinking this beer is tasting different to me. I remember the citrus/floral aspect being big, but I don't recall the pine being so dominate when I last tried it in 2013. Overall I'd say this is a solid dipa, however, the pine isn't pleasant to me. The malt helps to balance the bitter/pine a bit, but not enough. Still, this is a beer I will revisit, and one that I would recommended. (85/100)

Appearance: A Beautiful amber, Honey like almost glowing appearance. Very pretty.

Aroma: Whoa! Floral, grapefruit, pine resin, honey, biscuit, tobacco, citrus, pineapple, slight rum, I could pull aromas off of this for hours!

Taste: Oh yeah, just how the aromas lead you to think this will taste. Big slap of bitterness followed by just enough malty sweetness, but not too much. AMAZING.

Body: Even better than I remember it. I know that they extended the boil time a little and I think it was a good move. I could swirl this around my mouth forever.

Overall: One hell of a DIPA, a go-to for sure. I think that their "tweaks" on this recipe were for the better. Everything I look for and more in a Imperial IPA. Well done Sixpoint.
