From can at the world of beer in altamonte springs, fl

A- beautiful bronze with a creamy white head with nice lacing

S- a lot going on here. definitely pine resin and its weird but there is funky almost b o type aroma but not in a bad way. catching a little malt through the hops. amazing complexity

T- the piney resinous intensity carries over to the palate. the hops definitely the main event but the malt come in on the finish to balance it out. the flavor of this brew just stays with you.

M- really oily. sticks to your mouth which makes the finish last for over a minute

O- one of the truly great imperial ipas. just all around homerun. tho it's hoppy and intense in flavor it somehow balances out in the end. fantastic

I love this Double Imerial IPA! it is my 2nd to Heady Topper! Love the can label, love the smell and feel of the beer and it tastes amazing! Getting a 4 pack of this is almost as hard as getting heady topper and I live 2 and a half hours away from the Alchemist! Next time I am in NYC hitting up Brooklyn and touring SixPoint!

I ordered this because I couldn't hear the bartender and when she said "Sixpoint" I took my chances and nodded. Normally I hate IPAs but I can actually say I enjoyed it.

Appearance- Pours light amber with a foamy head that leaves some lacing.

Smell-Hoppy and piney. Some citrus

Taste-Piney and hoppy but not overbearing. There is an acidic bitterness to most IPAs that I can;t get past but this beer doesn't have it. Not nearly as bitter as I would expect. There is also some citrus and caramel notes.

MF-Nice carbonation, medium body.

Overall- The best IPA I have ever had but keep in mind I liked it because it lacked the bitterness that most people enjoy in their IPAs.

Clear, orange amber colored body, with a smaller than typical head for the style, but with a lot of latent carbonation steamers. The smell was a bit more subdued than I expected, with some grapefruit and mango, and ironically not a lot of pine resin. The taste was a bit more of a hop showcase, as there was a lot of herbal notes up front. The malt showed up more forcefully shortly afterwards, and gave a tropical punch (mostly orange and pineapple) like sweetness, before fading away into a floral hop finish. Clean feel in the mouth, tending be be neither too slippery nor too sticky. Not the best DIPA I've ever had, but very comforting to fall back to a familiar pleasure from time to time.
