4.05/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured form a 12oz can into a GI chalice
A: Pours a ruddy orange color. A gentle pour creates a small, foamy, light tan head that bubbles away to a no-so-thin cap after a minute.
S: Big notes of citrus right off the bat. Pineapple, mango, orange and pear. Almost as strong is some earthy pine. I can also make out some warm toffee and caramel as well as slight alcohol.
T: I can see why this beer is called resin. Huge, resinous and piney hops have taken the forefront. Fruit flavors are present but more subdued. More of a vague citrus flavor that melds into a pretty big dose of malt. Much maltier than I originally expected, there is a caramel sweetness on top of which the bitter pine and floral notes can express themselves. Alcohol is hardly noticeable at first, but becomes an increasingly large component of the flavor as the beer warms. It is never overwhelming, especially next to the sweet malt, and blends nicely with the hops for a long, bitter and moderately hot finish.
M: Medium bodied and just a little oily. Mild carbonation and mild to moderate alcohol heat.
O: A pretty great DIPA. Much more balanced than I expected thanks to a good amount of maltiness.

Tasted On: 03-06-2014
Freshness: Best by 06-09-2014
Packaging: 12 oz. skinny can
Purchased: 4-pack from Chuck's, Bowling Green KY
A: Hazy, dark copper colored-beer with a white head. I get a good amount of lace; the head dissipates pretty quickly.
S: Smells are a fabulous melding of fragrant floral and citrus hops plus rich, caramel maltiness. I could happily smell this all day long...
T: The taste has a sharp bitterness of the citrus/fruity hops, as in grapefruits, but also has the malty caramel flavors noted in the aroma.
M: Full-bodied, the beer finishes with the same themes of resinous (ha!) hops and malt undertones.
O: Bold DIPA with a great balance -- loved it!
