BEER INFO

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.10%

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.

Got this one in Buffalo this past summer.

From a can into a snifter
IBU: 115
SRM: 11
Drunk right after Resin

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, looser, foamy, off-white head with good retention. Clear rust orange in color with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a foamy cap and clings to the sides of the glass. A splotchy wisp remains until the end leaving decent lacing as the glass empties. Same as Resin but a touch darker.

SMELL: Caramel, pine, citrus and loads of alcohol. Some honeydew as well, but really boozy and alcoholic.

TASTE: Like the nose, this is the same as Resin but much boozier. The alcohol kind of dominates from start to finish. There’s still some pale and caramel malt sweetness up front and lots of piney hops at the swallow. Big and lingering finish here as well, with lots of sweet melon and caramel, piney notes, citrus and lemon flavor. Lots of bitterness and alcohol linger on the palate.

PALATE: Medium – fuller body and carbonation. A touch foamy on the palate, goes down fine and finishes slightly dry. Lots of alcohol and bitterness lingers. Much hotter than Resin.

OVERALL: This is a good beer but very bitter and boozy. There’s more than enough character in the beer to still make in enjoyable, however. As far as IPAs go, I think I’d take Resin over this one, but this is certainly a fun pair and I’m glad I got to try them back to back. Lots of similar hop character but this one is, as I kind of expected, a little bridge too far for the style. Still worth checking out if you like the style. This is a better huge IPA than Dogfish Head 120 min, for example.

I live in Boston but had to go below the Mason Dixon to find this badboy. Tallboy poured into a pint glass at Tattooed Moose in Charleston, SC. The first 5/5 I've given on BA. I thought Puff was my holy grail but this blew it out of the water. I'm writing this with 2/3 of my glass untouched. Next level Triple IPA, try it if you can find it.

Wow dangerous, tastes more like 7% than 10.5%. Glad to snag it fresh. Good head, some fruitiness with the punch

12oz can into tulip
BB 8/19/16
L- hazy dark honey capped by thin white head
S- citrus, pine
T- caramel malt, followed by tropical fruity lemon-lime citrus, with a big citrussy hoppy finish along with slight piney-ness
F- light-medium bodied, big boozy feel
O- this is Resin with some more alcohol, and less pine. I'll go with Resin in the future... however the aftertaste does pick it up a bit

Hi-Res brewed by Sixpoint Brewery, with an 10.50% ABV. This American Double/Imperial IPA pours out a deep golden amber color with a small white head. The smell of Hi-Res is rich with the bitterness of hops. You also pick up on grins and malts, in the smell of this brew. The smell is vary inviting . The head to this brew goes away fast, not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste it is , bold with flavors. You first pick up on the hops in this brew . Then a nice mild smoothness of grins and malts. The end and aftertaste of Hi-res is nice and clean. There is a lot going on in Hi-Res this brew is really refreshing . It is really hard to pick up on the 10.50% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. There is nothing overpowering about Hi Res , it has a decent balance to it. The mouthfeel of Hi Res is Hops, Bold , Rich, Clean, and Smooth. Overall I'm giving Hi-Res a 4.75 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. Sixpoint Brewery, did a real nice job with this one. If you are into hoppy flavored brew this one is for you.

Hi-Res | Sixpoint Brewery. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this beer's head is 1 and a half finger thick, with solid lacing, and a clear medium fading into light golden amber body.

Smells like an agnry barrage of hops, ready to get violent the second things go onto my tongue. DON'T piss off these hops!!!

I taste a fairly assertive blend of pine,citrus, mango, and pineapple types of hops, all bound together and driven home by the crispy, buttery malt backbone. With the IBU's up there for this beer, this needed a malt blance to deliver and this most certainly does. I'm really not getting any off-tastes or boozy flavors here either.

Hi=Res' mouthfeel, to me, is medium with mild carbonation. Clean and surprisingly smooth.

I'll rate Hi-Res | Sixpoint Brewery with an overall 4.75. What DIPA this sure is; I'm still digging the ultra-smooth finish on this. Certainly worth picking up.
