Golden copper with a white head. Aroma is citrus and pine hops with a hefty portion of caramel malt. Medium full body. Flavor has nice resinous hops, citrus, pine, and sweet malt. Lengthy bitter finish. Quite nice.

Pours an opaque amber with a medium tan head. Aroma has floral earthy citrus...grapefruit...notable caramel malt backing but not sweet...reminds me of ald school nugget nectar. Flavor is very sweet...like a barleywine but not as heavy...good fruity bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the fi ish is fruity/bitter and dry...lingering. nice beer but so much more potential...

red bull can, it smells and tastes like pine tree sap. I mean, not for me, also a little hot and boozy.

Golden hazy straw colored. Deceptively light nose. The mouthfeel is super dry, and very bitter hoppy. The crisp, refreshing bitterness continues long after the beer is gone. Really great summertime sipper.

Dark orange color lots of carb. The taste is sweet and malty with a good hop profile. THis beer is thick though and very malty which makes the hops take a back seat.
I like it but I think it could lose a bit of malt.

This 12oz slim-can is an interesting looking vessel to be sure. Stamped on the bottom is "BEST BEFORE 23NOV2012". Thatís a long shelf life for a DIPA, and I hate Best Before dates...tell me when the beer was bottled/canned for cryiní out loud!
Poured in a tulip. The beer pours a nice looking orange-copper and is topped by once finger of off-white colored foam. Itís settled quite a bit, but there is sticky lacing all over my glass.
The nose is rather tame for the style, but Iím definitely getting piney hops as well as malts and grains. Not much in the way of citrus fruits, this is definitely more of a pine/floral Ipa.
Nice combination of malt and resiny hops in the taste. The hops are so sticky, that it basically sticks to your tongue as well as the rest of your mouth. Good bitterness about midway. The sticky hop-juice adheres to the palate and holds on long after the swallow.
Medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.
A nice DIPA overall.
Moreyís Bottom Line: I was excited to try this one after watching the Sixpoint video for it. Itís definitely above average, but not on the level of HT, Pliny, Hopslam, or even Double Trouble for that matter. Still, I think that Sixpoint achieved what they set out to brew with this one. Nice.

4 pack from Good Foods. Big malty Double IPA with the pine taste you expect. But hops donít overwhelm in that cat urine kind of way. Alcohol hidden. Maybe the best Iíve had from Sixpoint.
