Notes: 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.

This is probably too much for me in the abv dept, but pretty darn impressive to hide most any of the booze behind a wall of hops. This one's got some bite to it, glad I tried it and wish there were others from this brewer available locally.

"Best by 7/10/15"; drank 3/2/15 @ the Yarchives.

See-through orange appearance. HUGE off-white head; frothy lace.

Orange zest, pine, fresh water & a hint of booze heat in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Honey, pine needle & caramel flavors up front; orange citrus zest & faint booze heat on the finish.

Sweet & boozy but with enough caramel ballast for balance. Nice.

Wow. I can’t believe they crammed that much booze into this thing. Big IPA done right. Could have used a little more head but maybe you don’t get much of that in this style. No excessive sweetness or bitterness to counteract the alcohol, and no excessive alcohol taste. Bonus points for coming in cans. And not 16 ounce cans. I have no idea why some of the other big IPAs are showing up in the 16 ounce cans.

I got a can of this from someone....I think it was from my pseudo big bro. It poured a hazy copper with thin white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had pine resin and hints of tropical fruit. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink for an 11% bomb. There was pine and citrus peel flare. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid and big beer.

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.
