Enjoyed on tap during Lehigh Valley Beer Week
A - Pours a medium orange gold color with minimal head and very little carbonation, leaves a very thin ring around the top of the glass.
S - This is the weakest category for this beer, I suspect the serving temp from the tap is masking the majority of the aroma. Passion fruit, nectarines, pineapple, and some crackery malt (but not much).
T - This beer is all about the candied tropical fruit experience. Lots of pineapple, passion fruit, nectarines, and light tropical fruit. Hoppy sweet spicy resin from beginning to end and coats the mouth before ending with a bitter citrus and pine biye on the finish to counterbalance the hoppy sweetness. Some alcohol comes through but for 11% it's not the effervescent booze bomb one would expect.
M - Thick medium body and light, prickly carbonation.
O - This is the biggest and most bold offering from Six Point that I've ever experienced. Nicely done with the hop head in mind.

"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.
