Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours an orange to amber hue. a big three finger or so white frothy head. moderate retention but huge foamy lacing all on the sides. strong clarity and brightness.

Smell: strong resin, pine and some citrus. malty to caramel sweetness.

Taste: opens with a syrupy, caramel sweetness. hop resin takes over. more bready to toasty malts play in, along with hops with notes of pine and some citrus. some honey-like sweetness.

Mouthfeel: syrupy, and resiny. sweet and with bitterness but not quite what you'd expect with 115 IBU. more sticky than lingering bitter.

Overall: certainly a bigger version of Resin, but I think Resin is the more ideal strength. the increased maltiness is almost too sweet, I like the syrupy feel but I think it needs a bit more hop bite and linger.

What a great IPA, first time having anything from six point. Local store had this in and had to get it. Such an amazing taste and smell, very sweet smelling. Strong taste but so good

So glad to have tried this one. It reminds me of a young Heavy D. Chunky but Funky. Good God, let that resin tickle the back of my throat and remind me why I love IPAs so much. Can I get a witness? Good, God! Oh, yeah, find this brilliance from SixPoint and ask yourself if IPAs are a hobby or an addiction. Citrus layers galore, and I subject you to implore. Mighty, mighty, mighty. A pleasure! SixPoint does it well.

tried the 2015 batch on tap and loved it. Smells like a hurricane of citrusy greatness and the taste only expands on that. One of the best DIPAs I've ever had.
