LOOKS: Pours a slightly hazy (chill) amber-orange with a finger+ of off white foamy head that leaves a thin layer on top of the beer. Slight bit of lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Lots of hop resin and citrus/grapefruit rind. Slight bit of astringency, ammonia like to me, some people get pineapple.
TASTE: Good amount of bitterness from start to finish. Slight pine in taste but more citrus pith than anything, really. Enough sweetness from the malt to balance it just enough.
FEEL: Medium body, a little bit slick and then it dries up at the finish a bit. Good amount of carbonation to move the flavor around the palate.
OVERALL: Would like more pine in the flavor but other than that this one suits me great. No alcohol in the taste, nice big citrus flavors.

The smell and first sip are all pine but the finish is surprisingly complex. A nicely balanced IPA.

Great brew from Sixpoint. Best by 04Jul2016. Pours an orange color. Nose is an explosion of pineapple and ripe mango. Taste is much the same with pineapple being the dominate flavor. The bitterness lingers only a short time. Finish is grapefruit and pine. Nice balance. Feel is crisp. Medium carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA that has a fantastic pineapple dominated nose and taste.

Look: Clear amber in color, an inch of white head, fair amount of lacing.
Smell: Citrus and pine.
Taste: A beautiful bouquet of hops, light grapefruit bitterness, notes of pine, a little earthy.
Feel: Medium body and carbonation, leaves some hoppy stickiness, fairly smooth.
Overall: A great IPA with nice hop flavors and a solid malt backbone that doesn't get in the way.
