The smell on this one is just what you'd expect with its name: resiny. Seems sharply hoppy from the nose.
There's a real puckering, resiny bitterness that hits up front. It's a seriously hoppy beer. But then it gets interesting, as a sugary sweet malt base shows after the initial hoppiness. But on the finish, there's an astringent bitterness that lasts after the swallow for a while.
Serious beer here. Hop lovers will love it. Others will not. The sugary sweet base at least provides some balance. Pretty nice.

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.

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.
