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

I am really impressed with this beer. First off IPA's in cans are growing on me quicklike.

A: Pretty clear well filtered, little bubbles, bright white head and some lacing

S: Citrus and Hops all the away.

T: Fruity with a nice hope balance, would never know its 103 IBU

M: Sticky as expected from a beer called Resin, nice mouthfeel to it

O: This is a great beer. Could be very dangerous in multiples.

I've had 4 or 5 of these now (not at once) and have to say that they're a bit inconsistent. I really feel like some cans had noticeable differences. Still, it's good beer. Great citrus-y aroma and nice taste. Like Heady Topper, it's got kind of a resiny feel to it, which is a bit too much sometimes, but overall, just a nice orange-y colored citrus-y DIPA. I like the 12 ounce cans too!

Cloudy orange-amber color. For a bar-pour head, quite extensive.

Nice, fresh floral hop to the nose. No malt. Classic strong IPA.

Mild malt and then a grapefruit infused hop explosion. Smooth body, but comparatively thin to other IPAs. No truly an DIPA, closer to the American version of an IPA.

This is really quite a stupendous canned brew. Hops dominate its essence.
A: Gorgeous gold with good clarity, mild carbonation and lots of off white head. Nice lacing.
S: Citrus, fields of grass and floral notes, light breadiness. Hops!
T: Grass and grapefruit. Licoricey sweetness. A hint of alcohol too...
M: It's drinkable. Beautiful hoppy bitter aftertaste. Only a bit of alcohol bite. Crisp as hell
O: This is a great beer for tasting. A whole can of it will fuck up the drinker thereof pleasantly
