BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

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.

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.

What an exceptional IIIPA. The drink-ability is phenomenal. High alcohol is masked well by the balance of hops, look is orangish and hazy. Overall just delicious, will buy again.

Surprisingly clear with big citrus aromas and minimal hop bite (for having 115IBUs)
