Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy amber orange with a white head just short of a finger that dissipates to a frothy ring. Pungent aroma of tropical fruit, candied mango, pink grapefruit, pine resin, and spice nicely integrated with a sturdy, caramel driven malt backbone. Big bitter hop ride up front with an interesting dank carmelized finish strangely reminiscent of a barleywine, especially as it warms. Mouthfeel is hearty and sticky, very smooth even with the moderate carbonation. I'd never guess this was an 11.1% ABV beer as the alcohol is expertly hidden, making this beer dangerously drinkable. I picked this beer up after reading all the positive reviews and I'm glad I did. This one has staying power. Highly recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

commonmac (901) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2016
Itís an achievement! #900...hard to believe how quickly the arrival at this milestone has occurred. Served up in a tulip glass at Busters with commonshawn. Visually it has a lot going for it with a orange and golden color and a healthy white, half finger head. Aroma is nearly sweet with citrus, tropical fruit, and some bubblegum. Taste is delicious with a sweetness taking over from an initial hoppy bitterness. Syrupy, sticky mouthfeel that enhances the consumption experience. Nice funky characteristic working well within the confines of the higher alcohol imperial IPA. Beautiful finish that incorporates an appreciated balance of malty sweetness and hoppy citrus bitterness. Probably the best Sixpoint Iíve consumed. High recommendation.

hotstuff (4730) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2016
Rated on 4-28-2016 (Can) This beerís appearance is a small semi-fizzy off-white head that is mostly lasting, transparent amber body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, lightly fruity, earthy, some pine hops, alcohol, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, light pine hops, orange, caramel malt, and boozy. This is a medium-full bodied beer. Overall, a very, very good tasting beer. It has a bit of a warming sensation to it that I like. The 10.5%ABV comes through as the beer warms up. It is a good sipping beer with a moderate bitter aftertaste. It is a beer well worth trying and definitely a beer that I would drink again.

Aroma is tropical fruit, mild/medium sweetness and a decent hint of funk. The flavor is tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus/fruit, mild funk and a mix of bitter, tart and slight sourness in the finish.

Can. Pours amber with thin off white head. Aroma is sweet fruity hoppy. Taste is sweet happiness with a warm sweet alcohol hoppy finish. Better than i expect.

commonshawn (921) - Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2016
Tap at devils advocate with commonmac. 10oz pour in tulip. Hazy gold with very thick white head and excellent lacing . Smells of sweet and hop balance. Tastes amazing. Much more tart and funky than most dipa, which is terrific. Hop and alcohol and bitter character come at the end. Great beer, right up my alley. This is what Iíve been wanting a dipa to try .

glennmastrange (2569) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Tap. Moderate to heavy roasted and caramel for the malt, heavy pine, and orange and grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with solvent and urea in the background. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, white, with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear dark amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, almost syrupy, with a soft carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Full of everything DIPA-ish and then some. This was a great mountain to climb.

SG111 (981) - New York, USA - APR 7, 2016
Canned. Best by 07/12/16. Pours remarkably deep ruby copper, slightly beige head, small, sudsy lacing. Aroma is pine, residual sugar sweetness, citrus hops, grapefruit, some mango, light tropical notes. Flavor is pine, sugar sweetness, booze, slight vanilla note maybe? Itís fairly malty, and it kinda drinks like a super hoppy barleywine, which works for me, thatís like my go-to. Sort of like a less malty/fruity bigfoot is how it drinks to me. Itís got a solid hop bite finish thatís sort of turns into this long bitterness to it as well. I really dig it. It works for me.

PartyFowle (908) - - APR 6, 2016
Can. Perfect clarity; burnt orange hue; tight white cap. Pretty brew. Aroma has a surprising amount of caramelized sugar, accented by ethanol, grapefruit and flowers. The flavor has a similar booziness--the whole thing comes across as citrus and hop liqueur. Doughy, vanilla-accented malts provide some sweetness, and the pillowy body softens the bitter, boozy edges.

tmoreau (3423) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2016
On tap at Warrenís Ale House in Wheaton, IL. as a 5 oz. flight sampler, showing a clear & bright, deep amber/gold color, with a frothy layer of off white head foam, and sheet-like cling to the lacing. Served a bit cold, but with a little warming, still produced only modest fruitiness on the nose. The taste offered more, with pit fruit, touches of citrus & tropical scent, and Barleywine-like malt sweetness & alcohol. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, earthy bitterness, and a warming presence to the finish. An unmistakably hefty DIPA.

trapped (1959) - New York, TURKEY - APR 5, 2016
Draught. Clear copper red with creamy beige head, faint caramel aroma, low carbonation, caramel taste with resiny bitterness, alcohoil undertones, longish bitter finish. Strong and bitter but seems to have more caramel than hops.
