4.15/5 rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12oz can poured into a snifter. Best before 7/12/14 stamped on bottom of can.
A- Pours a slightly hazy amber/ orange with a half finger of white colored head. Some froth and lacing is noted along the sides of the glass.
S- I thought it was going to be aromatic given the initial profile. Some nice citrus aromas are noted, but not as pungent as I expected.
T- Starts off rather sweet before the hop explosion. Notes of piney resin and some citrus are noted in this one, though the pine seems to dominate.
M- Medium bodied, heavily carbonated, bitter with a very dry finish. The 11.1% ABV not really noted at all.
A very nice older brother version of Resin, and one I'm glad I found.

This brew dances from the can with an unexpected aggressive carbonation which builds a big chunky white head atop a medium amber hued body. Aggressive and chunky lacing down the glass and a cap of foam that never goes away. Floating sediment throughout provides a haze and hint of the aggressiveness in store. Big notes of honey dipped grapefruit and tropical fruits in the nose. Taste follows through delivering on the honey sweetness enveloping every other flavor of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and papaya. Major resinous hop quality underneath it all. Flashes of alcohol heat woven onto the flavor profile which while cold adds to the depth of flavor but as it warmed became a bit much and distracting. Bright and vibrant mouthfeel with great carbonation prevents this from ever feeling heavy. Finishes with a flash of creaminess in the mouthfeel leaving behind the great flavors of the beer that's surprisingly not overly bitter. Overall I was surprised by this beer. It manages to be big, bright and complex while being drinkable. At 11.1% this beer is dangerous and if they can find a way to hide the heat this would be on a whole new level.
