Received this from a friend along with a DFH Burton Baton.I've looked forward to trying this beer since the hype surrounding it started to build.Very pleased initially after being met by a very fragrant nose upon cracking open the can.Very floral,some stonefruit and only a slight,soft citric note.It poured beautifully as well,a vibrant peach/orange with just shy of two full fingers of lumpy,ivory foam and raised rings of lacing.Overall,taste was a little disappointing.Too much ripe green apple and soft clover hops.Bitterness was almost more of a sour tang than a pine or citric hop quality and this beer suffered for me from a discouragingly thin mouthfeel.It is easily one of the softest,least belligerent DIPAs that I've ever had and maybe because of a name like Resin and a claim of 103 IBUs I was expecting something a little more formidable.Good DIPA but just not quite worthy of it's acclaim as far as I'm concerned.

A - Cloudy orange wih a nice two-finger white head.

S - Floral with some pine and nice citrus notes.

T - Very well balanced. Awesome combination of pine, citrus, and flowery hops. Alcohol is very subtle.

M - Medium carbonation with a medium body.

O - Very drinkable for a DIPA. Subtle and full flabor. Would definetly drink again.

From can at the world of beer in altamonte springs, fl

A- beautiful bronze with a creamy white head with nice lacing

S- a lot going on here. definitely pine resin and its weird but there is funky almost b o type aroma but not in a bad way. catching a little malt through the hops. amazing complexity

T- the piney resinous intensity carries over to the palate. the hops definitely the main event but the malt come in on the finish to balance it out. the flavor of this brew just stays with you.

M- really oily. sticks to your mouth which makes the finish last for over a minute

O- one of the truly great imperial ipas. just all around homerun. tho it's hoppy and intense in flavor it somehow balances out in the end. fantastic

I love this Double Imerial IPA! it is my 2nd to Heady Topper! Love the can label, love the smell and feel of the beer and it tastes amazing! Getting a 4 pack of this is almost as hard as getting heady topper and I live 2 and a half hours away from the Alchemist! Next time I am in NYC hitting up Brooklyn and touring SixPoint!
