The beer poured a deep gold with a significant slightly off-white head. The aroma is very strong resinous hops with some citrus orange and a full sweet caramel malt underneath the in your face hops. The taste starts with a juicy citrusy hop bite with a huge sweet malt middle that ends with a resinous and piney hop bite. It’s that pine hop profile that lingers on your palate between tastes and helps mitigate the sweet malty base of this beer. The Hi-Res is hugely hopped and takes no shame in being what it is. It definitely carries a sweetness around that harnesses the hops, but I found myself enjoying the Hi-Res sip after sip.

This brew dances from the can with an unexpected aggressive carbonation which builds a big chunky white head atop a medium amber hued body. Aggressive and chunky lacing down the glass and a cap of foam that never goes away. Floating sediment throughout provides a haze and hint of the aggressiveness in store. Big notes of honey dipped grapefruit and tropical fruits in the nose. Taste follows through delivering on the honey sweetness enveloping every other flavor of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and papaya. Major resinous hop quality underneath it all. Flashes of alcohol heat woven onto the flavor profile which while cold adds to the depth of flavor but as it warmed became a bit much and distracting. Bright and vibrant mouthfeel with great carbonation prevents this from ever feeling heavy. Finishes with a flash of creaminess in the mouthfeel leaving behind the great flavors of the beer that's surprisingly not overly bitter. Overall I was surprised by this beer. It manages to be big, bright and complex while being drinkable. At 11.1% this beer is dangerous and if they can find a way to hide the heat this would be on a whole new level.
