Sixpoint Dabble

It’s been awhile since I picked up a Sixpoint beer. When I first got into beer, I was super into their stuff and haven’t seen many new beers from them hit distribution by me. When I saw this, I thought I would give it a try.

ABV: 8.2%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “There’s nothing quite like your first taste. Hop farmers are breeding insane new flavors—one sip and you’ll be hooked. To truly harness these new flavors though, you’ve got to dabble a bit and test them out. The new hop blend blew our minds, so for DABBLE, we’re taking our experiment full scale with massive loads of hops so everyone can experience it. Sabro provides an incredible coconut note, Cashmere brings a soft, delicate complexity, and Idaho 7 brings potency and depth. Dip a toe in—dare to DABBLE. #DareToDabble”

Random: This is part of Sixpoint’s Infinite Loop IPA series.

This brew poured with a one and a half finger of white head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was hazy orange with a little bit of carbonation visible. The nose had orange segments along with tangerine juice and lemon zest. The taste was citrus dominant. I specifically found some orange segments, like the nose, and tangerine peel. There wasn’t much tropical fruit to this. The beer was very boozy, which was a bit off-putting. The body was middle of the road on thickness with a nice amount of carbonation. The finish was sticky with orange and tangerine. I wasn’t a huge fan of this beer. It was a bit one note and needed some complexity.
