Tasted at Iron Abbey. Aroma mostly citrus. Golden yellow with weak white head. Mostly hoppy flavors. In particular orange stands out. Is this the Chinook hops? A neat idea to use the same recipe with individual hops. I'm glad to see this brewery is branching out.

Hazy golden, kinda has that eggy color look, white head, nice nice lacing... loads of grapefruit/citrus hop aroma, nice aroma, lightest malt behind... lively, dry finish, loads of hop flavor, light spice, loads of citrus, some light sweet malts, but the hops dominate... medium to medium thin body, good flavor...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Paradiso Dupont for the Sixpoint DC Launch. The pour is a glowing, bright yellow with the thin, but dense creamy yellow head. Very hazy. Nose is pretty muted giving some hint at Chinook herbal hoppiness and citrus peel. Taste is very bitter, extremely aggressive Chinook hops overtaking as expected. Body is heavy and dense- full malty to keep the Chinook bitterness in check. No butter, no soap. Clean palate. Dense and excessively nutty bitter, but well made. Pretty much your very hop forward IPA. A little too heavy to be sessionable.
