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.

Solid dank beer. A lot of the reviews mention that the alcohol is masked but I get a big alcohol smell and burn.

This is a top 5 DIPA (TIPA - whatever) for me. I might prefer this to Pliny.

This beer is apparently dry hopped with fresh hops, and it shows. Nice clean fresh taste to the hops; not overpowering, and not what I'd describe as "super hoppy," but the hops are displayed in a way that's really delicious.

The beer is smooth and a little sweet, and hides its alcohol well. Might be a little too sweet for some, but for hop lovers (and especially fans of Resin), this is highly recommended.

Very impressed!

This is a phenominal beer.

A-beautiful clear golden color with a hint of orange
S-first crack of the can and the smell is glorious, nice and hoppy, citrus. I dead to pour it out and the majority of the aroma quickly left, leaving behind a sweet alcohol smell
T-the hops shave the alcohol really well making this dangerously drinkable. Sweet to start and rounds out with a satisfying bitterness that is smooth and mellow
M-carbonation is light and not overpowering, leaving room to appreciate the sweet hops
O-this is a great beer, I highly recommend. Be aware that the 10.5% creeps up on you. People have compared this to Heady Topper, while I can see some resemblance, this beer is great in its own right and deserves a try.
