4.58/5 rDev +10.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Pours a rich reddish golden amber but on the lighter side. A generous frothy head that stays for a while. The nose was rich with that ever so present grapefruit/citrus hoppy aroma. Its bursting out of the glass and just about pleasantly attacking your senses. There was also a scent of pine tar, but in a gentle but noticeable way.
The first taste was difficult only because using one of those designer Samuel Adams Boston Lager beer glasses, the nose was what you felt so mo much. I rolled the second taste around my mouth, much like I would do for wine tasting. This allowed the beer to reach each sensory spot on my tongue. Still very forward and aggressive hoppiness and citrus.
The over taste was that this was a pretty big beer. For an IPA, I was surprise at just how much body this had, not like a barley wine, but just round and full.
The finish was very dry, typical of most hoppy IPAs. At 11% abv, I expected the taste to have a little burn, but it didnt. I did detect some alcohol burn at the end..
I am very enjoying this beer. To me, its the big brother of Resin, a much bigger brother.
Next time , I need to try Hi-Res and Resin side by side

Hazy yellow orange with a glowing center. Four fingers of level big bubbly white froth. Excellent dense gauzy lace.
Big pine aroma upfront. Citrus orchard in the background.
Thick slather of semi-sweet malt coats the tongue. Juicy fruit explodes all through the mouth. Pulp must be spitting out of my mouth. Bitterness rises as the beer goes down the throat, and lingers long into the afterglow.
Solid medium mouthfeel with some prickliness.
A highly well done Imperial IPA. Seek it out when fresh.

3.89/5 rDev -5.8%

Pour is hazed dark amber with a white head and lots of bubbles on top. Nose is grain up front, not much of malt component, a fair bit of resin hop and assertive citrus with a touch of herbal tea. Taste is really different, grains and herbal tea mixed with red fruit punch. Body and soft, carb is spot on, semi dry finish. Very unique and easy to drink, no bitterness through the finish.
