Best before 12-Jul-2014
A: Half inch tall head poured in the english style pub glass, bright white color with mixed sized bubbles. Good sustain on the foam, about a minute before it fell completely. The beer is a golden copper color with a hazy complexion.
S: Moderate citrus hops (orange, pineapple) with sweet candy like hops (starburst and skittles). Underlying pine and sap resin. Boozy notes are present along with a light bread character from the malt.
T: Bitterness is firm with a round citrus hop flavor, grapefruit and over ripened pineapple. Malt character is moderate with toasty and bread crust. The hop flavor follows through the middle with tree sap and mango. The lingering after taste is candy like.
M: The name is appropriate here.. the tongue is left with that resinous hop oil that lets you taste the beer long after its gone. Carbonation is moderate and there is a fairly big alcohol warming sensation. Body is moderate with it being emphasized by the alcohol.
O: A pretty tasty DIPA but I wounder if the ABV on this thing could be lowered to make it more enjoyable. The aroma seems choked out by the alcohol and the the warming takes away from the drink-ability.

"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

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.
