12 oz can poured into a tulip “Best before” date of October 12, 2013.
Resin pours a hazy golden color with a massive foamy, frothy head that leaves massive chunks of lacing behind. Tons of hop haze and sediment in the beer.
The beer's name is a good description of its aroma. Even for all the hoppiness there, there's still balance – there's some tropical fruit and citrus: mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and others. Definitely lots of pine needles/resin and maybe even some orange. There is some bready, caramel sweetness from the malt, but think of this as distilled hop goodness. As the beer warms, the sweetness ramps up as well as the alcohol.
Resin is devilishly smooth but incredibly complex. With lots of fruity hop flavors – orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango – at the front of the palate, there is no mistaking the identity of this beer. Massive and bursting with hop flavors, it takes no prisoners. The hop flavors on the front move into a brief malty middle before a huge assault of pine, grapefruit, and spicy herbal flavors on the finish that linger long. A monster of an IIPA, but incredibly drinkable and balanced.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy with crisp carbonation on the finish, which is long and bitter. The alcohol comes more in the form of warmth than actual flavor.
A very nice IIPA. This is definitely putting the lupulin resin on a pedestal, and it works well. Not super aggressive, but definitely strong.

Purchased from the packey best by 05092015.
A: cloudy yellow with a thin ring of bubbles, that lacing hangs around forever.
S: Middle roasted malts, spicy resinous pine needles with bitter citrus. Mild peppery yeast and everything just blends well. Very well presented IPA notes.
T: Follows nose. The mild weediness, pine and citrus peek up and stay up. bitter-orangy-grapefruity finish.
M: Semi-creamy, coating well with a smooth, velvety finish. Some signficant bitter notes poke up and subside in the dry, creamy finish. It is a HUGE finish on the dry and bitter side.
O: Give me more of THIS. Between citrus, bitter, dry, and pine....this is a balance on the edge of too much. But it is not.
