4.25/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Description: Golden, hazy appearance with a thick, foamy white head (1 - 1.5 fingers worth) and good head retention/lacing. Smell is dank and tropical with mango, peach, pineapple and just a hint of pine. The taste is similarly dank but not as much as I would like. The finish is only slightly bitter but there are plenty of hops to be had. The alcohol is not overwhelming but is noticeable. Feel is thick and fluffy with low to medium carbonation.

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely drink it again) This is a solid all around DIPA. I would have appreciated more dankness and the alcohol to be hidden a bit more, but those are minor points and didn't detract much from the overall beer.

9% ABV makes this a strong one. Nice heavy punch too with lots of deep flavor without the fruityness of some double IPA's. Thumbs up.

Pours a hazy light orange,apricot color.Nice head,nice lacing. Smells like pine,some caramel malts, hops. Taste is smooth and refined, hints of pine orange,buttered biscuit. Feels well carbonated and refreshingly crisp. Overall this is the baby brother of their Hi-res, which is also outstanding. I like this brewery.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours almost clear light orange amber with a thick orange tinted white head that leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is oranges and pine. The flavor is sweet citrus up front followed by very bitter hops in the finish. The feel is full and well carbonated. Overall a decent beer that's got an aftertaste that's a bit too bitter for my liking.

This is my go-to beer. I had it on draft at a Ritz Carlton resort and remember planning a day of drinking poolside and after one of these I was feeling relaxed and floaty. I was told it was over 9% ABV.

I like beers with stronger IPA pine taste ... I'm probably strange that way. I don't mind a fruity IPA as is becoming the rage in New England, like Sip of Sunshine' but I do prefer a nice pine tar and citrus west coast style IPA such as this.

Run away from this can if you don't like pine because as the brewery describes this, it's triple the pine flavor. There's some lemony citrus notes hidden in here as well.The best thing about this beer is that at 9.1% ABV you'll get that nice relaxed feeling after drinking a can or two.

I'm not terribly fond of the packaging which looks like an energy drink but it takes up less real estate in a fridge and makes it easier to hide it in an office fridge. Overall this is the beer you want to drink when you come home from a long hard work day. One or two will do you and you won't chug this stuff because like an Italian woman, it's on the strong and on the bitter side in a good way.

Nice color and lacing. Smell is ok at best. Taste is bitter and heavy with a bite. Has a lingering feel in your mouth which I enjoy in a beer. Not bad for a double IPA dank beer. I have trouble finding good dank beers . Everyone is going go east coast or fruity IPA. Give me a good old fashioned Dank.

3.97/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Canned 1/18/18, consumed 2/28/18

Poured clear golden amber with a nice big head that left lots of lacing.

Aroma is primarily dank hops and sweet malt, full and strong.

Taste is a blast of citrus fruit with a thick helping of dank hops. Piney and earthiness in there as well. Not very smooth or balanced.

Mouthfeel is a bit heavy with strong, dominant alcohol lingering and heavy bitterness that's pretty much in your face.

Overall, a decent DIPA, a nice attempt from a NY brewery to make a West Coast style IPA. I'm terribly spoiled out here as I've had Pliny and Hopocalyse very recently, and well there's just an apparent level of separation.

True to it's name, Resin is certainly full of hops, but the combination almost seems too much. Not a bad beer by any means, a little steep on the price here in NC, especially for a 12oz can.

T-as name says- resin. It dominates the flavor profile. Enjoyable grapefruit finish. I bit of a burn to let you know it’s there.
F-
O-enjoyable beer. I’d have a few of these.
