Notes / Commercial Description:
Named after baseball’s most common double play, 6-4-3 is anything but routine. This intensely bitter Double IPA will have you re-reading the Mitchell report to see if it’s on steroids. With a clean and simple malt base that allows the bright orange and grapefruit hop flavours and aromas to shine, 6-4-3 will have hop heads rushing to add it to their own personal highlight reel.

On tap at Bar Volo. Fresh batch for IPA challenge. Very drinkable. Hop forward but still attention to balance. Hop juice, citrus and a hint of other fruit. Good hop aroma. Orange coloured body and lacy. Some noticeable yeast presence. Hits the style and then some.

Poured in to pint glass.

A - Hazy orange with a golden glow along the bottom and a thin layer of cream coloured head.

S - Grapefruit, pine and lighter peach and tangerine aromas with a fairly prominent caramel malt sweetness.

T - A big bitterness up front that immediately gives way to a caramel malt sweetness before returning in a somewhat dry, bitter finish. Grapefruit and pine are the dominant flavours with a lighter tangerine presence. Fairly typical flavour profile but still well done.

M - Medium body. Somewhat creamy and sticky. Light carbonation.

A-Hazy yellow with a hint of orange. White head that lingers
S-I thought there would be more aroma but there isn't. And this is a super fresh (15 days from bottling) beer. I get subtle fruit sweetness with a little orange Citrus
M-Mouthfeel is light to medium with carbonation perfect, and not overpowering
T-Sweet upfront with a smooth bitterness that comes in with hoppy goodness. I get lots of peach and mango and sweet pineapple. Bitterness stays on the palate for a while in a very pleasant way
O-This is a really really good beer, nice puckering quench and well balanced sweet and bitter.

On-tap at Volo.

Beer is cloudy golden in colour with a moderately-sized white head. Good lacing and decent retention.

The nose contains an oily hop scent, rather resiny. I don't really get any citrus. Caramel malt and biscuit are there too.

Fairly large malt presence in the flavour, with caramel and biscuit. Lots of hops as well, with a citrus flavour. Grapefruit and pine resin. Booze is noticeable.

Full bodied and oily, with moderate carbonation.

Overall, a decent beer.

From notes taken last night; first pour from a fresh keg at the Kick Off in Waterloo. It was absolutely stunning, and far superior to previous pints I have enjoyed elsewhere. Not certain whether that's because it was a "new batch" or just that fresh, but the best Ontario DIPA I've ever enjoyed.

Pours a beautiful amber colour with a decided haziness; decent off-white head and the expected lacing. Brilliant hop-forward aroma with lots of pine, resin and citrus. Taste is also very hop-forward. A nice caramelized malt backbone for some balance, but definitely designed for fans of the "west coast" spectrum. The pine and citrus notes are stunning, with a delightful bitterness that lingers for an impressive length of time.
