3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was almost overwhelmed by the resin smell when I first started to pour into a Spaten Stange glass (which for me tend to make many beers taste better) altho the next one I’ll try a Tulip glass. I usually like creamy but not over the top IPSa"s - for my first one this has almost TOO much of a finish .. it doesn’t - goes on & on !!
With some food and/or snacks it would hjold up.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap, hazy copper with an off white head. Big hop aromas with lots of pine, earthy and herbal notes. Not for beginners, big hop flavor and the abv comes through in the body of this one in a way that makes me wanna say you could cellar a bottle of this for a year or two and that would do it some good. Crisp bitter finish decent beer.

From the can. Aroma is pine and bitter hops with noticeable sweet, caramel malt. Taste is heavy on the pine with lingering hop bitterness and a heavily sweet malt backbone. Coating mouthfeel. Enjoyable malt heavy IIPA.

Flower, citrus, and pine in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and a little bready. Heavy citrus and pine bitterness in the finish. Lots of flavor but great balance and the alcohol is barely noticeable. Another really good beer from a really good brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Cloudy amber pour with foamy head and persistent lacing. Clean hop aroma. Taste is citrusy (grapefuit) and a little soapy. Finish is very dry with the grapefruit lingering on the palate. Not a bitey as I was expecting for 103 IBUs, balanced well with the malt. Overall, an enjoyable DIPA. Sixpoint has a cool video on their website explaining the backstory on this beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the 12oz can. Beautiful cloudy amber with a foamy lasting head. Big clean hops aroma. Full body propels a mellow bitter with some sweetness balanced with salt in the middle. Mellows further to a soft aftertaste. Overall this is a lovely, well behaved DIPA. This will become a house regular.

Lighter, cloudy taste. A little soapy and sweet. Who knew such a bold taste could come out if a little can??

Pours gold with a never ending head of tiny bubbles. Aroma is a field of hops. Medium in body with a creamy texture. A lot of hop bitterness is in the flavor with citrus and just enough sweet malt. Finish is bitter with a bit of an alcohol burn.
