BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States
sixpoint.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Once our eyes were opened to the potential of the hop cone, we couldn’t be stopped. With a laser focus, we magnified the hop factor, and pushed the boundaries of flavor, aroma, and perception itself to create HI-RES. It’s Mad Science.

3.85/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: It pours a somewhat cloudy dark orange with a slightly off white head. Head retention is good

Smell: There are strong notes of stone fruit that is a cross between peach and apricot. There is very low grainy sweetness in the background.

Taste: The flavors have a heavy stone fruit peach and slight apricot flavor. The is some alcohol notes in the flavor as well as some grainy sweetness. There are also so low piney notes.

Feel It has a moderately full body with a bit of syrupy texture to it. The bitterness is quite high, but is offset somewhat by the grainy sweetness.

Overall, there are plenty of stone fruit flavors and bitterness that take center stage with the alcohol being rather smooth.

Excellent IPA with a full mouth feel and boozy after taste. Not too aggressive on the hops and well balanced with a sweet malt backbone.

Absolutely exquisite. There is literally NOTHING wrong with this beer; even the alcohol percentage is the lucky number 11.1. My only issue is they are sold as four packs only. It's obvious it's not regular beer, so most people interested will understand that it's not to be drank in large quantities.

Delicious, strong, not too sweet or bitter; flawless.

Beer perfection in a can.

Draught @ Tapped: This one pours a just hazy golden/amber color. It has a thin off-white head with some lacing. Good nose. A mix of hop notes, with mainly pine and citrus as well as some subdued malts. The taste is very good. A light bitterness with lots of malts providing some background sweetness. A subtle mix of hops, mainly pine and citrus flavors on top.

It pours golden with a nice persistent head despite the imperial ABV. The aroma is very nicely malty and hoppy in equal parts. The taste is intensely bitter but also boozy especially after the beer warms up a little bit.

Look is a matter of opinion. This beer is showcasing the biological process of brewing."going microscopic on the hop cone and magnifying the lupulin factor, Increase the resolution and you can see the finer details and the big picture" In other words there are big old yeast chunks dancing around and happy to be out of a nano keg. This is with all Hi-Res. I personally don't mind it that much. This beer smells like pine,hay, fresh cut grass, buttered biscuits,alcohol for sure 11.1 A.B.V. Taste is fruity,nice malt finish, still the hop factor leaves a bite after the malt. Overall I would recommend (if you don't mind yeast chunks ) They actually are high in vitamin B. Great triple IPA
