Sixpoint Puff

Posted: November 24, 2016 in American Double/Imperial IPA, Reviews, Sixpoint

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I enjoy Thanksgiving, although not as much as Christmas, since that’s my favorite holiday. The cats like it too since they get leftover turkey. I’ll probably be on the couch watching football right about now, so let’s get to the beer.

ABV: 9.8%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Imagine puffing away on hops for days, then just chillin’ as the party starts winding down. But wait, a final burst of energy; one last dose in a tank of dry hops. A special hop bouquet for the afterparty. If you love Resin, try tasting it straight from the tanks. That’s PUFF – a hazy, unfiltered pour with an extra dose of dry hops…a new blend devised just for Puff. We decided to capture our own puffy, cloudy brew in a limited release can. First puff says it all – this is is Keller. Breathe deep and put your head in the clouds…it’s Mad Science.”

Random: This is a beer they want you to drink really fresh.

This beer poured with a two finger head that was slightly off white in color. It dissipated quickly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and bright orange with a lot of carbonation. The nose was filled with pine and fresh cut grass clippings. Some grapefruit pith came through as well. The taste was much more dank than the nose. There was a lot of fresh pine needles. The taste was made lighter with grapefruit flesh and a moderate dose of lightly toasted malt. The booze dried out the beer a bit, but didn’t burn the back of my throat. The body was lighter than I expected but had a generous dose of carbonation. The finish was quick with menthol and pine. A can of this $3.12, which came to $.26 per ounce. This was interesting and I drank it with no problem, but it didn’t floor me.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
