UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 6 month old can.
Copper orange with a eggshell white head. Sticky smell, very floral, lots of hops, but not a lot of tropical fruit, more resin, but I remember having this fresher and it was incredibly juicy and fruity. Taste is very very balanced, everything is well compontented, Bitterness that is very evened out kind of a sweet but medium light malt body and a lot of hoppy goodness. Very drinkable 9.1% not noticeable at all, quite bitter aftertaste. Dr.Drei (27) - New York, USA - MAY 7, 2014
The aroma is nice: mild floral and citrus qualities, very complex. I’m having a hard time pining down what kind of hops they used. Definitely not some of the varieties with strong citrus qualities (e.g., Citra, Centennial).
The beer pours clear with a pillowy head.
As for taste, it is on the sweet side, with a nice balance of hops and malt. I’m tasting Crystal malt (I’m going to guess Crystal 40). I’m wondering what the primary base malt was.
The palate is nice, with medium body, a creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish.
It is a very good to excellent DIPA. I only wish that Sixpoint would list the grains and hops they use on their beers.
ALLOVATE (3015) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours quite misty with a fine amount of protein caught in suspension. Finely conditioned inside a pastel orange body. The head a mess of soppy white suds that field a fine lace. Souped up, piney, resinous, whole hop nose dominated by ripe pineapple, eucalypt, tea tree, passionfruit pulp, lychee and mango. Fruity and plump aroma not relenting any of that alcohol. Where is the alcohol? Wha..? Rounded, oily mouthfeel. Body is good but not firm. Carbonation soft. Dry finish ensued by a lot of pine and tree sap. Juicy, fruity, tropical flavours dominate. Low to almost no malt as it melds so well with the pine notes. Lasting, bold fruit flavour, tangy and sweet, but so balanced and tee’d. A truckload of passionfruit and a shipload of pineapple in this one but it works oh so well. Nastilly sessionable nine per center. Massively good drinking!

Can from Mane Liquor. Grabbed this because everyone seems to froth over these when they come in. It’s solid, don’t get me wrong, but I’m not sure there is anything to set it apart from other good IPA’s. Fairly tropical forward and resinous, so the name says it all I guess Bebum (993) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Medium amber, lacey.
Full body, dense flavor concentration, rich, smooth mouthfeel, spritzy, just right alcoholic heat, long palate, delicious finish.
Bittersweet to a high degree,
Herby, barley hard candy, alcoholic.
Big and delicious.

Pours orange with a smooth head. Aroma of resinous hops, grass, citrus and aged maltiness. Taste is bitter, aged fruity and citrusy with some resinous notes and hints of vegetables. Finish is smooth, hoppy and bitter. Okay DIPA, but doesn’t feel very fresh.

Aroma is fruity and resiny with grainy tones. Flavour has caramel, gluey tones and fruits. Alcohol is also present and grows stronger towards the end of the glass. No signs of aging.
Aroma: yeast, resin, bubblegum; Appearance: pale golden, minimal head; Taste: medium bitterness, slight sourness, medium sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, soft carbonation, slick texture
Very good Dipa, bit too sweet and fruity though. Could loose some valours through the can...
