I had a Hi Res the other day I can't figure out which one I like more but they were both very good. This one however is more bitter and "resinous" so I would have to say for now I kind of like this one better. But that may change!

Appearance:Golden bronze color. Clear and has a nice soapy head which remains intact throughout the drinking of this one.

Aroma: This one is complex, at first you think it has some piney notes then they give way to more tropical fruits, there is a strong malt backbone on this one that gives it a caramel sweetness to the aroma.

Taste: Not very bitter but more than Hi Res, this one has notes of tropical fruits and some caramel sweetness, it finishes pretty dry but it is sweet. Not cloying by any stretch but it does have some bitter sweet notes going on.

Overall: Well balanced and enjoyable beer.

I love this IPA, strong piney flavor, great after taste. Smoothe with a great kick, nice carbination. One of the best out there.

Pours light color with a thin head. Has nice lacing
Do not smell much...surprisingly.
Piney hop that finishes quite nicely. Back end bitter really sticks around and moves out nose. Piney taste really sticks around.
Overall a very balanced beer with an powerful hop that resonates for a while.

Another excellent IPA that completely belies its IBU of 100. It tastes more like 50! So well balanced and a fabulous kick at 9.1 ABV.

Purchased at Total Wine, Tampa, 1/2015. Translucent amber color with white head. Smells of pine, hops, resin, grapefruit, and a hint of candied strawberry/Now-and-Later taffy. Taste parallels much the same with robust piney hops and that sweet candy aftertaste that is almost reminiscent of bubble gum. A very rich and thick IPA that coats the mouth and throat with caramel malts and candied sweetness. I liken this beer very much to Sierra Nevada's Torpedo Extra, but a little thicker, stickier, and danker. Simply a world-class DIPA. 4.39/5
