12(355ml) tall, skinny can. Copper orange aluminum with typical Sixpoint artwork. Green and black on a white field. Poured into a stemmed Port style/ipa glass.
A - orangish dark golden color. Glowing and hazy. Bright white head poured with very good size leaving behind a ring of lace trailing with nice stick.
S - big tropical fruit, candied mango and pineapple. Sugar and caramel malt with a bit of resin and hop spice. Alcohol esters tickle the nose but is very well balanced so far.
T - gushing tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and a candied light fruitiness. Resinous hops taste crazy fresh and fruity. Sugary caramel malt plays a key roll in the insanely balanced flavor. Alcohol creeps into the finish but is a smooth hop ride. Outstanding
M - big and full bodied. Lots of intense flavor and almost crazy drinkable. It's dang smooth and gushes the mouth with wonderful flavors. Coats very well and the texture and thickness is out of this world. Easy to get carried away considering this drinks nothing like the abv it packs.
O - hot damn, do we have a winner or what??? I still have 2-3 favorite dipa's that have stood the test of time, but geez is this thing close. I mean, Sixpoint have a real stud of a Dipa with Hi-Res. It has the flavor and complexity with a world class balance that will only turn heads. This should in no way be a limited release. This is a thoroughbred race horse of an ale that should be slotted right in to their rotation. Better yet, can this jewel year round. It's just a stunning work of art from the Big Apple.

"Where the telescope ends, the microscope begins. Which of the two has the grander view? Hi-Res. Zoom on, zoom in, hop out. This beer goes up to eleven." Brewed in the style of an American Imperial IPA. Released in 12 oz. can 4 packs and on limited draft.
Poured from a 12 oz. can to a tulip glass. Served above 58º Fahrenheit.
(Appearance) Pours a crisp frothy head of a cream white complexion over a mildly hazy orange-amber body. Very fine sediment is the only impediment to clarity, carbonation is virtually nonexistent in the appearance. Retention is above average, lacing is light and spotty. 3.75
(Smell) Resinous, piney and spicy hops forward with a bold bitterness are joined by a biscuity caramel syrup body for a strong balance. 3.75
(Taste) Quite assertive in its flavor, the malt profile is a husky, biscuity and grainy caramel syrup body joined with an assortment of resinous, herbal and peppery hops for an altogether sharp and bitter presentation. 3.75
(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, moderately chewy, mildly sticky. Carbonation is mellow, generating a soft frothiness for a subtle mouthfeel. Body is medium/high for the style, medium/high overall. Balance is nearly equal maltiness vs bitterness, both very profound. Alcohol presence is moderate, some grainy sharpness in places keeps Hi-Res from drinking as cleanly as it should. 3.5
(Overall) I had high expectations for Hi-Res, especially from the hype that was built around this beer in the weeks following its arrival in Georgia. Altogether, the malt profile is a bit rough around the edges, the hop flavor a tad one-dimensional and the booziness far too exposed to consider this a top-grade DIPA, although many have fared far worse. 3.75

4.05/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours hazy amber with a large fading head.
Nose shows tons of sweet syrupy malt, some lychee, a bit of pine. Very malty. Some booze.
Flavours include truckloads of sweet confectionery malt, almost cloying. Massive bitterness to balance. Some pine and resinous hops. Very full-on but the booze isn't all that prominent.
Very syrupy body. Nice high carbonation.
