crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2014
From a can. A orange amber body with a white head that had mild retention and no lace. Aroma had a strong mango presence upfront. Pine, citronella and caramel malts. Flavor had good hop flavor. Well balanced between tropical fruits and pine flavors. Grapefruit was mild. Some caramel malts and the alcohol was a warming presence in the finish. Otherwise it was well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid imperial IPA, double IPA, or whatever itís supposed to be. My first impression was that it was a little harsh, but I think thatís only because I was coming off a Waldoís jag. Aroma is light leaves of grass, or perhaps strawlike--it is light, in any case. Appearance is a darker honey gold, a little hazy, with a moderately frothy head. So far, so good. Taste is a lovable explosion of flavor, although not too complex on first sip--balanced, not too bitter and not too sweet. Palate is full-bodied, creamy, lively, with a bracing hop bitterness in the finish. I am enjoying this beer more and more with each pour, and it could soon become my go-to triple IPA.

Savage_Night (362) - California, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours copper orange with a medium frothy white head that slowly fades leaving behind a frothy cap, large ring and OK lacing. AROMA: mellow malty, pineapple, tangerine, coriander, slight caramel, spices, pine resin, herbal hops, slight green tea, grassy bitterness, peppercorns, citrus and other tropical fruits. TASTE: malty, coriander, pineapple, tangerine, caramel, spices, pine resin, hop spice, slight green tea, grassy bitterness, peppercorns, mango and tamarind. AFTER TASTE: malty, herbal hops, coriander, citrus, spices and grassy bitterness with a crisp bitter spiced "dank" finish.

Amazingly drinkable for this ABV. Big grapefruit and resinous pines flavours with a balanced malt profile that finishes nice and dry. No lame ass new world candy/Tropical soda/Lolly tasting hops like citra or mosaic. This is big boy beer. Destroys many other imperial ipas of this strength that tend to be a bit sweet or boozy. Brewers take note.. This is how you make a DIPA.

polo_marco (228) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Lovely floral scent to start with large amount of tropical hops that follow and finish this aroma. Super clear amber color with small white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Taste starts off with watery tropical hop flavor switching over to a sweet malt taste with a bit of bitterness then the tropical hop flavor comes back Really strong with dry finish. Some warmth in the chest at the end. Super sticky medium body nice light crisp carbonation. Love the complex flavor change on the profile of this beer one of the best triple IPAs Iíve had. Nice work.

commonmac (985) - 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 (4783) - 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.
