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.

Glad to see this back in cans for 2015. A little too sweet and boozy for my taste, but overall another successful offering from Sixpoint.

Pours a very deep copper golden yellow with a very light orange hue and a thin layer of very sturdy foam.

Bright tropical notes of pineapple, melon, and mango really shine over a noticeable sweetness and almost candy like malt backbone.

Tropical fruit, slight pine, candied malts, caramel, and bitter hop resin.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, sticky, resinous, and slightly more sweet than bitter, but both play a part.

Overall, I thought this was excellent, I'm a big fan of sticky, bitter IPAs and this was just that with a nice tropical and sweet aspect to add balance.

Very nice beer here. Solid DIPA. It has a very unique taste profile. Also, love the can and the artwork Sixpoint does!

Appearance: Copper gold with a nice soapy layer of head that remains throughout.

Aroma: This has a lot of sweet candied fruits, tropical dried fruits, papaya, mango, pineapple are dominant. Oddly enough I was expecting a resinous piney aroma because of the name but this is more tropical and fruity and I like that about an IPA, this one reminds me a lot of Jai Alai.

Taste: Lots of tropical fruits, not very bitter at all, nice complex flavor profile very juicy and full mouthfeel on this one. It is a very solid beer. Maybe a touch too boozy but not really, its a nice enjoyable brew.

Overall: I would certainly seek this one and any other Sixpoints beers out. I think if this is representative then they are probably a very solid outfit and I totally love the can design, Very cool!

Clear, golden color. No yeast sediment. Medium sized head fades fast.

Syrupy mouthfeel.

Taste is way too sweet for me. I'd like to say more about the specific hop flavors, but I'm just too distracted by the sweetness.

Crystal clear amber body. Spotty and sticky off white head.
The smell is of light candied fruit.
Taste = Overripe tropical fruit with a cotton candy finish. Pineapple hit. Faint alcohol on the back end through the pipes.
Nice medium mouthfeel, with lower end dense, silky smooth carb. Rich and juicy.

Overall - A splendid Sixpoint beer.

Poured a substantial (for an IIPA) head into a Spiegelau IPA glass over a stunning, deep gold body. Fragrant piney nose. Taste: a sharp twang of resiny hops whose bite is undercut by a lovely, rich sweetness. Savory, medium-bodied mouthfeel. This beer is a golden treasure, and one of the best IIPAs out there.

Too boozy and sweet for my liking. Not bad for what it is, I can understand why some people love it. Alcohol presence is definitely there and not hidden that well.
