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.

One of my favorite IPAs I've ever tried. The resiny, sweet, and hop characteristics blend absolutely perfectly for me. So impressed.

Poured into a taster glass. Thanks, Cam and Alejandra.

A: A bright cooper/gold blend with half finger white head that lingered.

S: Pine resin, tropical fruits (mango and guava), light malt.

T: Follows nose with a nice piney punch, low bitterness and fruitiness balanced with bready malts.

M: Medium with medium, creamy carbonation.

O: Just a shade under Sixpoint Resin in taste, IMO. A terrific DIPA.

The hop acidity is there but not much floral note, malt sweetness is ok, alcohol hits you fast with this one. Ok beer but not worth the cost

Can to snifter. Look is dark amber and clear. Not much in the smell at all. Maybe some mango and sweet malt. Taste is similarly mild. Bitter hits the front of the palate, but fades quick and is run over by sweet malt. The malt doesn't linger, so I wouldn't go so far as saying malt bomb. The booziness is present, and I did enjoy that. Overall not my favorite. I much prefer Resin in fact compared to this one

Picked this up while in Florida. A good Imperial IPA but honestly I was expecting a little more balance. Yes, it had a good hop profile but it seemed just a tad malty to me. Maybe I had an older can. I will have to give this another shot.

L: Brilliant copper with a 1” off-white to cream colored foam cap that is sticky and lacy.
S: Resin, citrus, fruit.
T: Dry, malty, fruity, tropical fruit, hints of pear, some astringency on the finish mixed with spices suggesting cola or cardamom. Complex layered flavors with a trace of tea. Light alcohol flavors. The bitterness is a tea type bitterness.
F: Medium body and carbonation, slightly warming.
O: A big, easy to drink DIPA.
