12oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a frothy one finger white head. Head retention is long lasting considering the strength with some spotty lacing.

Aroma is a huge citrus punch of hops with a strong lemon-lime note; almost like opening a can of Sprite. There is a touch of vanilla in there as well. This is one of the more interesting aromas from an IPA I have experienced.

Huge punch of citrus in the flavor as the lemon lime present in the aroma comes through in the taste. That same light vanilla note is present in the taste along with a light biscuit from the malt. Bitterness is absolutely over the top and really begins to get a bit taxing half way through the glass. Drinkability is surprisingly high with the alcohol very well hidden.

Overall, this beer impresses me. Crazy high drinkability and a very unique hop aroma and taste compared to many other IPA/IIPA's on the market. Definitely one to try.

12oz can, best before 20 Sept 2014, served in a Rastel tulip glass.

Appearance: Cloudy translucent, but glowing, orange-gold-amber. Rocky off white head with crazy lacing all over the glass.

Smell: All sorts of hops and aromas. Citrus, fresh cut tropical fruit, a hint of something herbal, grapefruit, orange peel.

Taste: Very hoppy, but smooth at first and then a slow buildup to strong bitter finish. Citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits up front, then a smooth sweet malt middle, some breadiness and some caramelized notes. The finish is pine, fresh grapefruit, and a lingering hop bitterness. Potent.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and approaching creamy. Lots of hop oils sticking to the teeth though. Light carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: A potent beer that really does wear out the palate about halfway through the glass. A definite slow sipper and one per evening on this one. The beer lives up to its name of hop resin oil being the main focus of this beer, but there some malt balance to this beer. I think I could definitely revisit this beer again, maybe with the right food, but by itself it's really quite something.
