Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

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.

12oz canned 1/8/18 (35 days old) poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 11.1% ABV 111 IBU. The beer pours moderately hazy orange amber with some small floaties. The head is off white leaning towards tan and quite sticky. Head retention and lacing are above average. The aroma is mix of boozy alcohol, grapefruit and pine. The taste is slight caramel at first before the pith and pine hit. The finish is big boozy bitterness that is not subtle. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. Overall, very good, but I think I prefer the more dialed down versions of the past.

12 ounce can poured into a tulip

A: Pours a hazy orange color with a white head that did not last long, lots of particles floating in the beer, no retention and a decent amount of carbonation, no lacing.

A: Lots of aroma, big piney, resiny, and fresh crushed pine needles on this one, almost as if pine needle oil was poured into it, picking up some grapefruit peel as well, and slight tropical notes like guava and peach skin, surprisingly no alcohol on the nose and not getting any malt backbone, all piney, resiny hop notes.

T: Follows the nose with big flavors of pine, resin, and needles, decent hit of grapefruit peel, and a subtle note of guava and peach skin in the finish, bitterness is not as high as I expected and hits with resin and pine, finish has lingering notes of pine and resin with a touch of grapefruit peel, lots of flavor.

M: Full bodied, low carbonation, and a really dry grapefruit peel-like finish.

O: Really liked this one especially since its loaded with pine, resin, and needles, also has another layer of flavor with citrus and tropical, a great sipping IIIPA, glad I picked up the four pack and not just a single.

Great initial pop and a nicer finish. Very balanced and not overly hoppy. One def gets a sense of that ABV with the first sip.

Just arrived! I have always liked Resin DIPA, so had to try the IIIPA.
11.1% ABV, 111 IBU, II SRM Unfiltered Ale

Very tasty! I like hop forward DIPAs, and was not disappointed!

Canned 16 JAN2018. Fresh!

I bought 2 4-packs, so will come back and tweak the review later.

BB 7/12/17. Clear light amber pour with a touch of garnet. World class head volume, lacing and retention.

Very good nose of sweet citrus (orange, mango) with a touch of spicy spruce along with a strong dose of pine. The bready base is slightly sweet with soft caramel undertones. Intensity is a bit lacking, hence the less than outstanding rating. As it warms, light notes of alcohol are present.

Medium body with a nice oily slick texture. The carbonation / body balance is quite outstanding. Mid-palate effervescence is tingly while the finish is finely bubbled and rollicking. The level of effervescence really opens the flavor profile up.

The flavor profile is more complex than suggested by the nose. Overall, it is quite outstanding. The tasty bitterness is surprisingly moderate which has a touch of zest added to the mix of pine and a much more subtle spruce. The middle is moderately sweet and allows the orange and mango to flourish. Hints of pineapple and passion fruit are present. Unfortunately, the alcohol becomes slightly uncovered and delivers the typical astringency and off flavor near the finish. Otherwise, this is a world class offering. The finish lingers and allows zest to shine. As it lingers, grain alcohol becomes evident along with astringency.
