UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 This is technically a double ipa but it does not taste like one. Has a real unique taste, not very bitter as the 108 ibu would lead you to believe. I like this one a lot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brief write-up. This is a rather malty, sweet DIPA, but at the same time, one thatís intensely bitter. Hops donít seem to provide much apart from aforementioned bitterness, while the malt profile gives off strong notes of toffee and earthiness. The lack of dryness really accentuates how piny the finish is. Iíd considering buying it again fresh.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was clear orangish gold with creamy white 2 finger lasting head, rings of lacing. Aromas are grapefruit, orange, pine, melon. Sweet pale, crystal malt backbone and no alcohol present. Taste are fruity hops of grapefruit, melon, orange, sticky pine and resin. Yummy. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting hoppy sweet malty finish. Wonderful DIPA, I wish could get some here, bottle share.

Dark yellow, fluffy head. Aroma is all orange and grapefruit hop. Taste is more of the same, unfortunately the body significantly detracts from enjoying any of the flavor. Flat and thick, syrupy. Combined with the one-dimensional bitterness, this one is hard to enjoy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a golden color leaving the same color body and mostly clear. There is a fair amount of carbonation which is seen rising. There is a one inch foamy white head. The lacing spider webs my chalice. The smell is hoppy and malty at the same time, piney and earthy, really nicely done. The taste is bittersweet between the malts and the hops, a spectacular taste on the tongue. It is about a medium on the palate with some slight sharpness a bit here and there on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA that I would come back to.

Pours light amber color with large off white head. Great aroma and very hoppy taste. Great beer for hopheads!

Aroma is moderately hoppy, with dank and floral notes plus some caramel and alcohol. Taste is bitter up front followed by some grassy and dank hops. Finish is pretty strong alcohol, though it does blend pretty well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Iím not sure what went wrong with this one, and Iíll give it another shot, cause I really enjoy Sixpoint as a brewery and they make some decent beers. Pours a really nice golden amber with no head whatsoever. Flavor is skunky hops, funky and rich with crisp bitterness and citrus. Didnít smell amazing compared to some of their other offerings. Flavor is much much better though. Very crisp and clean with nice, heavy citrus. Medium body.
02192013 On a second try, this came out much better. From draft, pours to snifter a nice deep golden with a faint head that dissipates. Nose is super resinous, lotsa pine and grassy notes with good citrus and grapefruit. Flavors follow through nicely with a bold pine and green taste. Nice lighter body and definitely enjoyable this time.

Trade from Phatdog1 - Thanks!Bonus appearance point for the snazzy can. Pours hazy copper, with a sizey white head. Smells very piney, with hints of caramel. Taste is very hop forward, as is to be expected. Lots of pine, some subtle peppery notes, and sweet caramel. Very tasty...
