12oz. can into a Duvel tulip (best by 7/10/13

A: It has an extremely thick head that goes from 3 fingers to 1 finger pretty quickly, but after that the head is quite stable and you could probably float a penny on it. However, there is quite a bit of suspended sediment throughout. The dark amber color is a bit hazy/cloudy. Lacing is ok but spotty.

S: Smells like a very strong IPA that is heavy on the grapefruit and citrus, with a bit of light pine.

T: It is all pine and resin, but I guess should have been expecting that with a name like RESIN. Really tastes like the Pacific Northwest. Surprisingly, the aftertaste is pretty mellow, but all piney resin as you would expect. However, it will ruin your palate. There really isn't any nuance here, just the single flavor note.

M: The mouthfeel is very smooth with little carbonation.

O: I am finding that I prefer more of the citrus, grapefruit-y IPAS. I don't want to say it is like Ruination (because that is my favorite), but if you stripped away all the citrus and complexity of it, with a few less IBU's, then this would be that. However, I know a lot of people will like that it is a strong DIPA in a can.

12 oz pour into a FW Teku

Aroma: Smell is actually a bit more subdued than expected. Some pine, some citrus, and something off that I can't really place. Maybe a little tropical fruit but so light.

Appearance: Very nice orange with good head retention. Bubbles vary in size and leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Flavor: A really nice malt flavor with hops present to back it up. Very pleasant grapefruit as the main fruit character, with pine on the finish. Respectable balance of malt and hops.

Mouthfeel: Good body, but maybe slightly too carbonated. Becomes creamy in the mouth after a few moments. Has a nice lingering bitterness on the finish.

Overall: Good DIPA but not as good as the standards of the class. The hops in this are a bit one note but at the same time the malt character does not really highlight them. An overall quality beer that I would definitely drink again, but not a standout in any way.

A - Nice color. Poured into a pint glass with a medium head which gradually faded away.

S - Pine all the way. Thought I was hit in the face with a spruce branch, not that that's a bad thing.

T - Went in for the piney goodness. I was left confused thinking I was about to taste what I had just smelled. Thought my palette was on break so I went in for more. Same thing. I don't want to say it tasted like a run of the mill pale, but I didn't find it to be that extraordinary.

M - Light and easy to drink, somewhat refreshing.

O - Definatly not bad, but not great. I've been wanting to try this one for a while and pleased I did. A good beer with a great nose.

L- Somewhat hazy copper color topped with a thick head. Head is long lasted and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

S- Hop, hops, and more hops. Piney, fruity, and floral all at once, pretty intense aroma.

T- Guess what it's a big hop bomb, nicely balances and well done though. Finish is a bit oily with a bitter final hit of hops.

M- Slightly creamy and not as viscose as I would have thought, seems a bit lacking here. A little less than medium in body and medium in carbonation. I would have liked a bit more body but its not a terrible miss.

O- If you want a hop bomb, it's the way to go. I would have never guessed it's 9.1% ABV either, so that makes it a bit dangerous as well.
