3.98/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear orange body with a frothy yellowish head. Looks resinous!

Nose is heavy sweetness with crusty hops on the finish.

Flavor is deeply sweet, but backed up with a palate crushing hop blast. Definitely not a West Coaster, this thing is a true double IPA.

Mouthfeel is slick and coating, but not really stripping at all.

Overall is very, very good. I like this brew, love the can packaging also.

4.33/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz can (Best By: September 20, 2014) into a Samuel Adams specialty (i.e. short-stemmed and elongated tulip) glass. Not the freshest can, but clearly within the Best By date.

A- Pours a golden orange hue with noticiable sediment floating about. The head reached a full 1-finger of which was white and creamy. The head maintained rather well considering the elevated ABV. (4.0)

S- Although subtle, fleshy tropical fruits (peach, mango, pineapple) dominate the aroma followed by a subdued honey sweetness. No noticable piney traces can be found. (4.0)

T- A typical 1-2-3 punch...sweet malt first followed quickly by juicy tropical fruits (peach, mango, pineapple) and then a substantial grapefruit rind bitterness. Not overtly complex, but fires on all cylinders that is trademark to a DIPA. Well done. (4.5)

M- The mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation to move things along the palate. The malt backbone is perfect to support the substantial hop load and makes for an enjoyable experience. (4.5)

O- Although Resin has been in circulation much longer than Sixpoint's Hi-Res, they have very similar traits. They are both solid offerings, but will give a slight nod to Hi-Res...but being that Resin is year-round, I am more than happy to have Resin at my disposal to satiate my hop fix. (4.25)

4.03/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz can, best before 20 Sept 2014, served in a Rastel tulip glass.

Appearance: Cloudy translucent, but glowing, orange-gold-amber. Rocky off white head with crazy lacing all over the glass.

Smell: All sorts of hops and aromas. Citrus, fresh cut tropical fruit, a hint of something herbal, grapefruit, orange peel.

Taste: Very hoppy, but smooth at first and then a slow buildup to strong bitter finish. Citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits up front, then a smooth sweet malt middle, some breadiness and some caramelized notes. The finish is pine, fresh grapefruit, and a lingering hop bitterness. Potent.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and approaching creamy. Lots of hop oils sticking to the teeth though. Light carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: A potent beer that really does wear out the palate about halfway through the glass. A definite slow sipper and one per evening on this one. The beer lives up to its name of hop resin oil being the main focus of this beer, but there some malt balance to this beer. I think I could definitely revisit this beer again, maybe with the right food, but by itself it's really quite something.
