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

A - Hazy amber with a thick white head and lots of bubbly, patchy lacing.

S - Piney, herbal hops with plenty of bready, sweet malt to balance.

T - Citrus and resiny hops followed by a big candied citrus, orange peel flavor. This one is fairly sweet with candied hop flavors.

M - Medium body, low carbonation, sticky, a bit sweet and oily.

D - I like the hop flavor but needs a touch more bitterness to balance the sweetness.

12oz can, best by March 5, 2013. Served around 45F.

Pours quite hazy orange amber with a three finger white head that leaves tons of clumpy sticky drippy webs and rings of lacing and holds a small cap. Beautiful.

Aroma is some citrus hops, orange, grapefruit also very herbal, resinous and pungent, even a bit funky, some caramel malt as well. Good, but not great strength.

Flavor is orange marmalade, grapefruit, resinous hops, a little touch of some weird funky character, caramel malt, candy, mild sweetness, good bitterness. Some alcohol on the finish as well.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.

Pretty good, very hoppy, quite intense. The slight underlying funkiness keeps it from being great, though.

12 oz can pours a medium amber with fluffy white head and ample lacing. Yeah, the aroma reminds me of resin with lemon, apricot, and alcohol. Taste is nice and bitter pine and citrus, a bit oversweet on the malt backing though. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel seems a bit flat - would appreciate a little more carbonation. On the other hand, the tongue-coating thickness of this beautifully bittered imperial is fanstastic. Aftertaste is puckering. I really wanted to like this more - I love resinous beers (Green Flash!) so I imagined a beer called "Resin" to be near perfect. But this one has crossed a bit over the line into surgary territory

This is one of the best imperial IPA’s I’ve had. I purchased it at Boscy’s in Saugus, MA. These do come in cans (4 pack for $10). Poured into a glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange color.

Scent: Wonderful & so fruity! Apricot, citrus, & pine.

Taste: Resin is everything that has made me grow to love and appreciate hoppy beers. Bitter yet fruity-balanced at the same time. It is very crisp and surprisingly not a strong alcohol taste even with an ABV of 9.1%. The bitterness does last through a majority of the taste, but it ends on a sweet apricot note.

Mouth feel: Medium body with average carbonation

Overall: This is one of the best imperial IPA's I've ever had!
