After my first round of OBPA at the Bridge View Tavern (17AUG12), lunch came and I went with Resin to accompany my pulled pork. Ended up having two wide-flutes of this, about 12oz each, at $7.00 per. A bit steep, but considering the location (Sleepy Hollow NY)...

Glass was filled with a medium golden brew which was a slight bit hazy and had sporadic carbo. Head was creamy and bright white, short but lasted well, and left super lacing. Mild citrus was present in the aroma, easily noticeable though not overpowering. A little prickle hit the tongue, and the body was a solid medium.

Light sweetness and a touch of toasty malt hit the palate first. Afterwards it turned to being pithy, resiny, and a bit piney, with solid citrus through and through. The grapefruit action lingered well in the finish and was quite pleasing. Very nice! Prosit!!

Poured from a 12-ounce can into a tulip-shaped Duvel glass.

A: Bright, hazy apricot/orange color. Nice head of tightly packed, off white carbonation bubbles. Lacing is nice & the head retains

S: Loads of citrus and tropical fruits with a blend of spicy and herbal hop notes.

T: slightly spicy hops upfront that are balanced by the malty body, big citrus hop flavors. IMO, perfectly sweet- real easy to suck down, especially forgetting it's 9.1ABV (I couldnt detect any alcohol)

M: Full bodied, great mouthfeel. Wouldnt mind more carbonation, but I'm not mad at it.

O: How I like my IPA's. I love the extra body to it and balance of sweetness & hops. Will definitely keep this beer around for myself and to share.

12oz can poured into a snifter
A: Slightly hazy amber color with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: Resin indeed. This certainly fits with the name- mostly pine sap/resin. Underneath that is a fair amount of brown sugar ending with pineapple.
T: Brown sugar up front, then pine, but that's followed by a bitterness that's not from the hops that doesn't leave a pleasant taste in the mouth. It goes away a bit after a few sips.
M: Between the sweetness & bitterness I can't say I'm a huge fan, though it's not out of line for the style.
O: This has a couple of nice elements, but overall the non-hop bitterness kills it for me. Excluding that it's well made and I'm wondering if something is off about this batch, though other reviews mention it as well.

3.53/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange/amber with a two finger head that retained for quite a while. Spotty lacing.

Smell: Very hop forward aroma with a mixture of pine and citrus. Not much else beyond that.

Taste: Smacks the palate with hops. A bit of pepper taste and a big bitter kick as it finishes.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, sticky, average carbonation.

Overall: A bit one-dimensional, but appealing for those that like their share of hops.

4.13/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Resin pours a slightly hazy orange color and is topped with ¾” of off white colored head that lasts for quite a while. Belgian lacing rings the chalice as I drink the beer it makes it easy to tell how many drinks I have had since I started this review.
Smell: A blast of grassy, pine and citrus aromas fill your nose upon the first smell. It is followed by the slightest hints of malt sweetness.
Taste: Hop bitterness is the first thing that I taste and I really can’t discern between hop flavors they just kind of melt together to make a tasty stew of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Resin is right in the middle of the road on the body of the beer; easy drinking and yet nice feel to it that the flavors stick around tastefully. I was hoping for a little better hop profile while drinking Resin but it felt a little bit on the muddy side, it is still a very tasty beer just a bit under what I was expecting.

Recommended by former coworker at my local pacakage store.
Glad i took his word for it;

A-Dark orange slightly hazey amber

S- Not a very pungent one at least on the nose; mint and hops faintly whisper

T- Spicy, minty, pine sap, with a sweet malt with round it off but still ending with the bitter bitter resin of hop and alcohol; I love it.

MF- Heavy and slightly carbonated. The alcohol feeling lasts.

Overall a very interesting Double out of a can nonetheless a good smack in the face and ruin on the palate from one of my favorite plants the Hop. Havent had my palate this bland since Stones Ruination
