3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark orange with a thin white head, aroma is kinda weak for a DIPA,grassy hops and a bit of malt. Taste very grassy as well with some pine and yes resin, bitter yes but it doesnít seem to be 103 IBUs. Good but a bit offf for the style.

Can. Nice hoppy aroma. Pours cloudy dark golden with a medium tan head. Nice and hoppy throughout. Leaves a little sticky sweetness behind that I could do without.

At home. Helsingborg, 7th of March. Big thanks to Steve (fbm115) for sending me this beer.
Pours dark orange, almost brownish with a big creamy head. Heavy aromas of pine needles and resin, just as advertised. Some green dry hops beneath it. Hints of a round soft sweetness as well. Full bodied with heavy flavours of reisnous hops, soft touch of syrup. No taste of alcohol. Great beer, great balance. DIPA just as I like it!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz Can, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. I have a hard time passing up a chance to try a new Double IPA, especially when itís only $2.69 for a taste. Theyíre kind of rare and I just love that potent hoppy alcohol action. This one has got a good dose of greeness in the nose, but some slightly doggy malts edge their way in past the spiciness. This is a thick and bitter brew. Definitely a DIPA that blurs the Barleywine line for me. The texture is incredibly viscous and creamy. Iím not sure the hop aromatics and flavors are as lush and tropical as I like them, leaning much more grassy, spicey and piney. A bit of turpentine, really. Iíve really not been a fan of Sixpoint and this beer doesnít change much. Thereís just a lack of concept, follow-through, and quality and an overdose of hipster nonsense with their beers that keeps me from hyping them as much as everyone else does.

From a slim 12 oz bottle into a tulip. BTW, I feel slightly ripped off because all other Sixpoint beers come in tall boys and I thought this one did too. It was really hard to tell this wasnít a 16 oz can by looking at the box. Anyhoo. Sticky, piney aroma. Some cherries and dark fruit too; pretty unexpected. Hefty white head with plenty oí lacing. Mouthfeel is solid with a good kick of carbonation to liven things up. Taste is pure pine. Cough syrup and some citrus are present but bring up the rear. In fact, now that I taste it, grapefruit is very noticable, along with the pine. The odd thing about the beer is that itís making my mouth numb... Itís really that hoppy. Very good, deep, malty IPA. It certainly lives up to its name! BTW, the can says itís brewed and bottled by Sixpoint in BK. I like that its brewed by Sixpoint itself rather than by a contract brewery. Sixpointís tap beers (brewed by Sixpoint itself) just taste better than the canned ones brewed by a contractor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Oily wet-hop aroma. Touch of citrus. Imbalanced but excellent.
Appearance is red-orange; hazy, half-finger of slushy head. Beautiful lace.
The flavor is spicy, woody hop. Rye-like malts. Sweet but peppery. Really woody and intense. It has that patented "Sixpoint flavor" which I think comes from their cans.
The palate is thick, slick and oily. It is a bit oí the West Coast in an East Coast can.

I really enjoyed this one; moreso than most DIPAs. It had a great aroma of hops and pine and, well resin. Palate was dryer than most DIPAs and very bitter with none of the sugary back end that I dislike. Finish was clean and crisp. Itís heaby, which makes sense given then IBUs and ABV but not overly so. Very drinkable for 9.1% beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Skinny 12 oz can; kind of a Soviet era, state issue look to it. Just misty amber brown with a fading bone head. Nose is black pepper, pine and caramel with hints of pineapple. Thick and chewy, yup resiny, with a soft buzz. Taste is grapefruit and lemon peel, briefly sweet citrus honey, pine needles and bitter pith.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber brew with lots of sticky white head. Nose of pine and resiny hops with lots of caramel malt. Flavor has lots of malt as well which provides a nice backbone to the huge hop punch. Chewy mouthfeel - the ABV is crazy well hidden.
