    We got them three weeks ago. They're all gone now. Went through two six packs in a week. Glorious they were, but a distant memory now. Should have cellared a few. Just didn't have the willpower.

    After a ridiculously snowy day, going into a bitter cold night, I'm slipping into the footy-pajamas of craft beers;
    Six Points Hi-Res. This is a super strong variation of Six Points Resin. 111 IBUs and 11.1% ABV. The hops give the alcohol a good run for their money, but when the tape breaks, it's the warm booziness that takes the finish.

    Interesting prose on the carton;
    "Where the telescope ends, the microscope begins.
    Which of them has the grander view?
    Hi-Res. Zoom on, zoom in, hop out.
    This beer goes to eleven.

    Reminds me of a song by Superdrag with backup vocals by Guided By Voice's Robert Pollard.
    The song goes good with the beer. Would probably go with any great beer.

    Baby Goes to Eleven

    You're lucky. Yours were bottle aged before you got them. We got them three days after they finished brewing.

    Why is that beer so expensive? It's a single IPA priced like a really good Imperial.

    That's what I picked up for the Super Bowl. Was pouring one when Percy grabbed that kickoff off the bounce. Spilled almost half of it yelling "Go Percy go."

    Great beer and an even better value. Never get tired of it. My dog really enjoyed what I spilled on the floor. She slept well that night. Too bad she missed that kick return.
