12 oz can into pint glass. Oh my god. No. I do not like this beer!! I thought I would like the super pineyness, but its like sucking on a teet of pinesol. Very oily, mechanical, industrial taste. Glad I can say I've tried it, but never again! Maybe this is what pine tree's themselves drink.

Opened the can with a muted pop

A - pours cloudy amber with a thin white head. good lacing

S - grapefruit, booziness, breadiness. for a beer called Resin, i expect something with a killer aroma.

T - oily hops, tangerine and grapefruit, hot, booze. chewy malt. very bitter

M - hop slickness coats your mouth. carbonation seems a bit on the low side.

Cool packaging, not so great beer inside. I picked this beer up from the local liquor store and it was a recent shipment, so I assume the beer was relatively fresh. Kind of unbalanced, overly bitter, and not very drinkable.

12 oz can. BB 28NOV2012.

It pours a hazy orangeish amber with a fluffy white head that recedes with some industrial-looking lacing.

The smell is decent, though it reminds me of like a hoppy wheat beer or something. A lot of banana, clove, and bubblegum in the aroma. It has a nice fresh hop scent but the variety is super like bubble gum candyish.

The flavor is reminiscent of a wheat beer as well. It has some nice fruity esters and a potent malt bill. There is some tangy citrus acidity. The bitterness is medium with some pine flavors, but not too much. It is just missing something.

It is okay, but it has a ton of "off" flavors that really don't belong in an IPA though they work a little.

Poured into an Allagash flute on 3/29/12

Best before 25 Nov 2012

Deep, hazy appearance. Honey and tangerine-hued. Pours a wimpy head, not even a finger's worth. It stands to reason the head doesn't hold well, finding only a soapy layer. Ok lace.

Aromas of pine tar, over-ripe citrus, onion, bubblegum, scented soap, flower petals, bread, caramel and overtones of alcohol wafting about. It's all rather bizarre.

The taste takes a page from the bizarre aroma; I can't shake the notion of flowers and bubblegum. Beyond that, there is a dense bitterness that shirks hop flavor in favor of headache medicine. Sure, there are undercurrents of pine and skeevy citrus, but it's mostly just rampant bitterness. Well, rampant bitterness and malt. Bread, yeast, grain and a hint of caramel.

Medium full body with sugar granules swaying back and forth. Carbonation is moderate, maybe even on the low side; I like that.

Overall impression - It's never a good thing when the product description of a DIPA refers to "encroaching malt sweetness."
