The pour out of the "Mich Ultra" type can produces a thick 2 finger head.
Aroma has me confused. Is a DIPA as it states? Did I grab the wrong box? Extremely malt forward.
Taste is the same...extremely malty and no citrus notes or bite that I expect in a DIPA. I'm not saying that all DIPAs have to be west coast style (see my love of Big A) but this beer just doesn't strike me at all as a DIPA.
Sorry...not my cup of tea. I have 3 more to drink and maybe my opinion will change...but I doubt it.
UPDATE - Since this review, I have had a number of additional servings of Resin and my opinion has changed. Might've been some quality issues since that first 4 pack, but since then I have grown to enjoy it. Not the best DIPA out there, but pretty solid.

pours cloudy, dark orange, little to no head.
Smell is fruity as in apricot and peach. Some of the alcohol is picked up. Bubble gum. Light vanilla scent as well.
The name of the beer tells the tale of the first taste. Resinous, bitter bite along with caramel and slight toffee and a little alcohol burn. A bit of peppery spice. Heavy hop bitterness dominates this one. maybe some of the floral variety.
Thick and heavy mouthfeel. very long finish. Medium carbonation.
Im not sure how I feel about this one. Its heavy and bitter for sure but tough to pick up on much more. It does have the malt balance. I prefer some more citrus in my DIPAs but this is ok for a change up. tough to have more than one in a sitting. Would have again but not going to go looking for this one.

4.11/5 rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.5
On tap at the Local Taphouse during Sixpoint AleStars session.
Pours a pale golden colour. White webbed bubbly head. Lace is nice and clingy. Looks OK.
Smells lovely. Sherbet with rosewater, lychee and lime. Musky, chalky, vanilla. Sweet, tangy, resiny, good.
Taste is resinous, pretty much from the start. Touch of caramel malt, with some vanilla notes. Resins come on midway, big and developing more bitterness on the back, big and resinous but never quite reaches that horrible ashiness, just huge resin flavour without the ashy bitterness. Quite amazing.
Body decently full. Bit of pull from the hops and quite a big booze note. OK.
Very impressive IPA character, enormous without the palate crushing edge. Beautiful.
Serving type: on-tap
