Beer added by: Jason on 01-10-2012

An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

Like the balance of malt and hops. Hop burn lingers very slightly at the back of the tongue. Great beer, glad I got a sixer.

Poured from a 12oz. slim can into a tulip

A: Pours a beautiful deep gold color with a dense, sticky, 3 finger head of white foam. After a few minutes the head fades to a nice crown that stays around for the whole beer, leaving behind heavy lacing in the process.

S: Clean, fresh aromas of floral and piney hops are the first thing that immediately hit you. You also get some maltiness, specifically bready malts with toasted caramel occasionally coming out. There is a little bit of citrus hop aromas as well, but they are dwarfed by the floral and piney hops.

T: Crisp, resinous flavors of floral and citrus hops with a good amount of pine. The flavor is obviously hop forward, but there is a good amount of malt suprisngly leading to only moderate bitterness. The malt character is a bit nutty, almost toasty, with a hint of caramel. There is a good amount of malt used, but it plays second fiddle to the massive hop flavors.

M: This beer has a light body and low-medium carbonation. It has a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel that is only moderately bitter considering it is 103 IBUs.

O: Resin is a great beer with excellent hop notes and good balance for a double IPA. It is very crisp and refreshing and surprisingly only has a moderate amount of bitterness. I will be drinking this again without a doubt.

It is a great deal at $11 a six pack. It has the requisite piney resin tang and nice carbonation but no hint of the massive 9.1 abv.
