That this beer only gets a "good" rating here is a crime against humanity ranking up there with waterboarding and wes anderson's movies. I'm not sure how it gets tagged as an IPA, because it transcends the genre and becomes something else entirely as you drink it. the color, taste, mouthfeel, and lacing are top-shelf and you really sit there shaking your head trying to figure out why it's so different and good. beer advocate feels like an IPA cult at times and anything that isn't a down-the-middle IPA (Stone, e.g., which is the perfect poster boy for the perfect IPA) gets pushed to the side by the rankers. glad the brothers see this one for what it is, even if the sweating masses don't quite get it.

Poured from can into globe.

Pours a nice bright orange color with a nice white head. Smell is a bit like caramel with piney hops shining through with a bit of citrus. Not entirely appetizing but still pleasant enough. The taste is what may cause me to buy this again, although a bit hot, the piney hops burst over the tonguewith a sticky sweetness from the malt, with a bit of citrus on the back end. Finishes very bitter. Mouthfeel is resiny as the name implies with moderate carbonation. Overall not my first choice for a DIPA but I may buy it again if the mood strikes.

This beer isn't too bad, but the smell needs a lot of work.

The apperance is great, it leaves a ton of suds on the glass and has a decent head too. Orange hue with gold highlights. The smell is almost non existent, it had some bright hops at the start, but after the initial whiff, there is really little but a slight, slight grass hop aroma and some malt? There really needs to be some more dry hopping to this, it's pretty lame.

The taste has a pretty ok flavor with a bready malt base and some nice bitter hops hitting at the back of the palate, rolling over the tongue with a nice sudsy feel. Overall it's not bad, but really it's unremarkable.

12 oz. can served in a FFF 15th Anniversary pint. Best by date of January 2013.

A: Pours a clear amber color with a one finger off white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a frothy collar and leaves some traces of sticky lace behind.

S: Definitely lives up to its name so far. Big pine needle and resinous hops are right up front with this guy. Some candied sugar sweetness with a little alcohol flavors.

T: Piney and resinous hops, but there is lingering malt bill that makes it a little sweeter. Definitely hop oils create a lingering bitterness that lasts through out. There is also a lingering alcohol flavor as well.

M: Medium bodied. A little sticky with medium carbonation. Lasting bitterness in the finish.

O: Ho hum in my book. Pretty one dimensional in the flavor. Definitely take a pass on this one.

12oz can poured into a snifter, pours orange in color, slightly viscous looking as it comes out of the can, with a fluffy off-white head that holds good retention and leaves sticky lacing on the glass. Tropical aromas of pineapple, mango, citric hop, mandarin orange, honey, with a sticky sweet malt presence, slight grain. Tastes are sweet and tropical up-front with pineapple and mango in the forefront followed by caramel, pungent grapefruit, and piny bitterness, tingly on the tongue as it goes down with a moderate alcoholic warmth. Medium bodied ale with ample carbonation. For being 103ibu it finishes pretty well balanced but has a lingering astringency on the end. Overall, good take on one of my favorite styles.
