Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Bottom of can says Best before 12JUL2014.

A- Pours an orangeish medium amber with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before falling to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Sweet, floral hop aroma with a whiff of booze. A bit resiny of course.

T- Eesh. The booze strikes down on the palate with brute force and there's little redeeming hop flavor trailing behind it. Looking for some malt to give the profile some backing but it's lost among the strong alcohol presence. Once it warms, some actual hop character surfaces but it's too little too late.

M- Sharp and bitey, mainly from the booze. Medium-low carbonation doesn't help things either. Body is medium-plus.

O- I know this beer was canned back in January but an IPA in a can, especially one this strong, should be holding up fine even 5 months down the line. Pretty disappointing especially since I like the regular Resin so much. Probably the most unimpressive "Triple IPA" I've had.

Hazy deep golden colour with a big, fluffy, off-white head. Very good head retention. Good lacing.

Richly citrussy with quite a bit of mango. Plenty of resinous notes. Not particularly intense but still good.

Moderately sweet malt. Moderate citruss and tropical fruit hop flavour. Moderate bitterness. Not as sharply bitter as I might like but still good.

Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Suitable.

A really solid IIPA. Nothing over the top but it works quite well.

Poured from a 12oz can, best before 12JUL2014.

Tiny beads race up a slightly hazy, golden honey body. Head is 4 fingers thick. Aroma is caramelized hops mixed with sweet pine. Onslaught of sweet hops on the palate and is quite astringent across the board. Juicy orange and apricot compliment. Body wasn't as robust as expected but overall a good choice.
