Pours a reddish amber with some orange highlights. Very subtle aroma on this one. A little bit of over ripened grapefruit and some grass. Not a whole lot going on in the aroma. What follows is a pleasant, balanced, and not so in your face DIPA. Somewhat medium bodied with some resinous sticky hops. Lemon, grapefruit skin, grass, and some caramel malt comprise the flavor. All pretty balanced with a hair of bitterness in the finish. Pretty easy drinking. jefcon (1936) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Draft, but I appreciate the risk in canning a 9.1 percent DIPA. Hop freshness is the first introduction to the nose and palate -- sticky grapefruit, lemon, leather and sage. But the malts are surprisingly strong, and that concludes in a well-balanced beer that is very drinkable and enjoyable through and through. tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Has a pretty dark auburn color. Smell is of piney hops. Holy hops, this beer is bitter. Pine, a touch of citrus and alcohol. I like hops but this beer has no balance to speak of. Overall a decent beer, but nothing great. GMCC2181 (1622) - Newark, Delaware, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Oh christmas tree can, you look glorious... Aggresive pour in to a snifter. Dark red in color... big head with small bubbles. Very danky, resiny aroma. Taste is intially a big sweet sugary pine notes. Danky, resin notes....sticky. Not very balanced just a bitter tongue bruiser. Sweet hop bomb. Good amount of carbonation. Good job hiding the alcohol. Overall. Nice DIPA keepersj12 (3143) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2012
This one is right up my alley. Big pine and citrus aroma bursts from the pop top. A very bitter beer to say the least. A bit of sweet malt that is quickly overwhelmed by the hops. Nice looking slightly red amber.

Thin off white head with fair retention and a bit of sticky lace. Lightly hazed, copper/amber hued brew. Piney hop nose, fairly juicy and attractive, little earth and grapefruit. Body is med/full, chewy, low carbonation, resiny, lil sticky on the lips. Lots of juicy hop flavor, pine, grapefruit, dankness with a touch of lightly sweet caramel malts along for the ride. Mouthwatering and juicy. Nice bitter finish, lil fruit. nice. 12oz can from statelineliquors. Slipstream (2763) - USA - FEB 22, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 On tap at Good Beer - awesome IIPA, and one of the best things I’ve had from a super brewery! Sixpoint just seems to get better and better and to keep churning out interesting releases. Nice orange-red pour. Sweet, floral, resiny IPA aroma with a floral quality that lingers for a bit. Smooth, sweet, and rich. The flavor is complex, tingley, and well-balanced between serious infusions of tasty hops and heavy loads of fine malts. I expected 6pt to do an excellent big IPA someday, and they have delivered. BUT I had to take a couple of points off after having it from a can. That time it got too darn overwhelmingly bitter for my poor little palate. For some reason I found the draft to be a lot more enjoyable. r464 (2424) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Deep coppery amber in color with a light tan head that is foamy but fades and laces soon after pour. Hoppy aroma. Floral hops are right up front with a nice, slightly bitter flavor that lasts through to the finish. A tad bit earthy, hints of pine, citrus zest, and spice. Amazing for a canned beer. Would definitely have this again. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
The aroma of this beer was very hoppy with a hint of sugar and sweetness. Taste was of fresh hops and a very sticky malt. Finish that stuck to the palate and kept the hops very well. Great DIPA. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2012
can poured a dark red amber color with a thin off white head. aroma has citrus, resiny pine, good malted body, and light sweetness. mouth feel is fuller than expected hitting a medium and there is average carbonation. flavor brings on the resin, pine, medium bitterness, citrus rind, gets a bit sticky, and finishes with light heat and lingering resins. did I mention the resin because the name is very fitting.
