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

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.
