oobawa (1192) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Lovely nose, full of pine and mango, and pours equally striking, a bright, clear gold with a modest head and lots o lacing. Taste is...odd, unfortunately, not bad, just a bit curious, big and malty but with a distinct fruit punch vein coursing underneath all the caramel and pine. Tropical fruits--mango and pineapple, mainly--form a modest but firm fruity backbone. Otherwise, Hi-Res could use a little less sweetness; the tiniest bit more caramel and youre entering barleywine territory.

Can from The Gull, North Vancouver
Golden color, clean, with medium head. Delicate aroma of malt and stone fruit. Full bodied, malty, but lean, some toffee but luckily with no caramel; balanced bitterness, the hopping provides some resins, but its not very bright.
Solid IIPA, not a modern one beware.

Oakes (17093) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2017
Light bronze. Thin head. Earthy and slightly cheesy aroma. On the palate, a sweetish malt character that shows a touch of caramel. With a bit of crystal malt chewiness, a fair bit of bitterness and some alcohol in the finish as well, this is a bit of an old school IIPA.

355ml can @ Matts. Pours a clear copper colour with a tiny white head. Nose is sweet malty with a hop resinous note. Flavour is sweet and boozy with a hop twist that fades to a hop bitterness of the fruity pith variety. I feel this is too boozy for what its trying to be. Many others of the style manage to mask the booze quite well.

demannu (461) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Pours a dark amber color with a soapy pod white head. Smell is mix of floral and tropical fruits, slight resin. Taste is balanced between sweet and hops. Mouthful is medium yet thick and slick. Ill stick to the basic Resin.

Big old school, boozy TIPA. Big orange and grapefruit flavours with some spruce and weed. Very straight forward. A clean, hop vehicle. Doesnt really go anywhere, but gets you your hops.

Pours a clear golden amber color with lots of streaming bubbles. There is a two finger off white head that left some good lacing around the glass. The aroma is orange tangerine peel, pineapple, grapefruit, very tropical and sweet with some dank floral hop resin notes in there as well. The flavor is sweet and citrusy up front but the dank hops and pine resin come through on the back end to even it out. The mouthfeel is medium to full and drinkability is low even though the alcohol doesnt come through in the flavor much.

From the can with a Best By date of 12 Jul 2017. Attractive amber, heady pour with decent clarity. The aroma has a mixture of sweet pale malts and fruity, floral hops. Also clean. Medium and smooth body. There is an interesting sweetness in the flavor that is quickly overtaken by the pine and bitter hop characters. Lightly lingering at the end.
