Sixpoint Puff (Triple IPA) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

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 ish is Keller. Breathe deep and put your head in the clouds… it’s Mad Science. Read More »

We use a total of three different hop strains, and add a total of six different additions throughout the process. The Bengali Tiger has a hoppy snap upfront, but strides at a steady pace, and finishes balanced. The signature characteristic of the Tiger is the aroma… we use massive quantities of whole East Kent Goldings hops to dry hop ... Read More »
