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.

Pours clear gold color with a 1 finger creamy bright eggshell head that faded slowly and was full of bubbles, leaving a layer on top and nice lacing with foamy rings as it goes down. The lacing did not budge and clung tight to the glass.

Wow, starts off with a huge whiff of sweet citrus hops that smell like wet hops and all kinds of citrus and tropical fruit. Nose is a mix of orange, pineapple, mango, caramel, graham cracker, resinous piney hops, light spices like pepper and coriander, and some fruity candy. There's enough malt backbone to add balance and hide the ABV. A nice hoppy nose that was full of complex hop aromas.

Tastes of juicy fruit with strong citrus hops and a mix of grapefruit, mango, orange, pineapple, other fruits that blend in with the overall fruitiness and then some resinous piney hops. There are also floral hops and light spices like pepper, tea leaf and coriander that blend nicely with the malt backbone which has graham cracker, toasted wheat bread, caramel, toasted grains, toffee and some fruity candy and tobacco. The alcohol gives off heat and shows through a tad bit, but this beer is not "hot" considering the ABV and drinks rather smooth for a dense feeling 10.5% ABV brew. The residual sweetness trails off in a pleasant way and seems to coat the tongue with hop oil.

For such a big beer it is smooth and easy to drink, hiding the ABV very well. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, with a medium to heavy body for the style, light carbonation and mild bitterness considering how expansive the hop presence is. Overall this is really good and a high recommendation.

Not for the hop averse drinker. Strong pine flavor hides begins a relatively soft to non existent (drags my rating down.). Packs a good boom of bitter, with an exceptional finish. Nice strong beer, at 10.5%, it's smooth enough to sneak up on you.

Better head than many IPAs, nice foamy top on this one, lingers through about 3 pulls before retreating. Deep yellow, bordering on an orange, pours one nice looking glass.... I think my rating is too weighted on the lack of nose.

Very Sweet, Crisp, with Nice Hop aroma. Strong- lingering dank hop profile with very mellow alcohol. As the beer warmed alcohol presents itself. Great beer, just maybe a little too sweet.

A great beer. Drinking right now, can into a glass. Golden color, thin head, good lacing. Fruity, floral hop aroma. Strong hop flavor with good balance, tart fruit. You know it's a double, but the alcohol blends well. Very happy that I bought this.
