The unusually tall narrow can minimizes its shelf space. Best Before January 10 2014.

Poured from the 12 oz. can into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Clear amber with an inch tall offwhite head and lots of lacing.

s: Moderate pine.

t: Piney hops dominate, as expected. Tasty, not quite the hop bomb which 103 IBUs might predict, which may be a tribute to the brewing quality.

m: Surprisingly smooth with a slick feel, which does a nice job masking the 9% ABV.

o: An exceptional DIPA. Less strong and bitter than the numbers would suggest. I would definitely put this up there with some of the best DIPAs.

Appearance: I like the unique tall thin can and the font/design of the label. Even though the diameter is small, there's still a very large wide-style mouth opening to make a glug-free pour easier. I used that careful pour because I saw fast near-white head formation, and I didn't want an overflow. With no glugs on an angle, there was still a 3/4 inch head, which leaves only a little bit of lace along my snifter. as it's drank. Translucent (allows light), but not at all transparent (allows no sight; almost indistinguishable shadows of my fingers on the other side when held to light. Beer seems as bright orange as a bright redhead's hair.

Smell: Easily noticeable floral hops, but not a strong smell (no real bitterness to the smell); more of an easy-on-the nose smell. My wife hates the smell of most beers but says this one has a light and pleasant smell.

Taste & mouthfeel - full-bodied, heavy, malty. Somewhat bitter, but mostly smooth. This seems a lot less bitter than other 100+ IBU beers (this is 103). The heaviness keeps the speed of drinking down, but the bitterness isn't really hardcore or even assertive. Light carbonation taste, despite the very fast head creation during the pour. I like this for the beer because any more carbonation would hide all the complex tastes of the maltiness. Same with the bitterness being somewhat weak. This is a very good balance, if maybe a bit heavy on the non-bitterness and carbonation side. I wouldn't have guessed on the 9.1% alcohol content. It's just really drinkable and tasty.

Overall this is an outstanding beer in my humble opinion. I don't remember the price, which probably means it costs around the same as all the other singles I bought on my last trip. I would love to have another sometime again and I strongly recommend it. It's not a beer for people that want to brag about ultra bitter or ultra dark or ultra lace, but it's a damn good full-bodied delicious beer.

4.13/5  rDev +1.5%

4 pack of 12oz cans, ~$10
A: Hazy orange-gold with a thick, lasting head. Moderate lacing on the glass.
S: Strongly hoppy, a little citrus.
T: Hops, citrus, and a strong pine flavor, a little crisp sweetness at the finish. Light alcohol presence. Most of the time when people say "pine," I can't taste it, but here it definitely comes out (hence 'Resin', I guess).
M: Medium bodied, minimal carbonation, with a bitter hop flavor lasting in the back of the mouth. Coats the tongue after a few sips.
O: A great DIPA - strong, but not quite a flavor bomb. A little pricey, but the flavor and alcohol content make this a reasonable purchase.
