Puff, an American Double IPA by Sixpoint Brewery

Share This Review

Puff is an American Double IPA brewed by Sixpoint Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.


The DIPA pours a clear copper and is topped by a thick cap of white foam that reduces slowly. A spittle of lace clings to the glass.


The aroma is mostly pleasant with a scent of piney hops and a touch of alcohol.


The palate is also delightfully hoppy; balanced with tropical fruit, biscuit, and caramel. Finishes with a hoppy bite of grapefruit, pepper, and just a hint of booze.


Its feel is somewhat chewy with a slightly heavier than medium body. Moderately carbonated.


For those not in the know, the Puff is the unfiltered variant of the Sixpoint Resin IPA. And while this is a tasty companion, the booze isn’t masked quite as well. However, it’s still pretty good considering its lofty 9.8% ABV. Puff is almost as good as its cousin, but this brew is better suited for those who like to push their liver to its limit.

About the American Double IPA

Also known as an Imperial IPA, the American Double IPA is a stronger and higher hopped version of the American IPA. The style originated in the 1990s when craft breweries wanted to provide a more intense offering to hopheads. The DIPA has more hop bitterness than Strong Ales and Barleywines but has less alcohol.
