Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

A - 4 - Pours a quite clear, golden-honey-orange color. With a heavy handed pour, forms about a two-finger head of slightly off white colored, dense, thick head. Medium/high head potential, medium/low head retention. Thick, whispy lacing.
S - 4.25 - Smells of pine, citrus, grapefruit, bitter grapefruit rind and slightly dank hops. No sweet fruit smells to be found, which I'm thankful for on this particular brew.
T - 4.75 - Light, neutral sweetness upfront, isn't really any particular type of sweetness, but just a beery beer sweetness which quickly fades into medium bitter hops, grapefruit rind and pine.
F - 4.75 - Nice oily texture, medium thick mouthfeel.
O - 4.5 - This is an extremely good representation of the double IPA style. I wish more IPAs would follow along these more savory and bitter guidelines of Resin. There is however, one tiny little thing missing that I'm wanting. A slightly sour, tart flavor would complement nicely in this beer, perhaps adding lemondrop hops? That would push this to a perfect 5 for me in a heartbeat. Nonetheless, an absolutely excellent and stellar double IPA!

Pours orange/gold with a nice head that leaves plenty of lacing. The nose is fresh peach, mango, orange and pine with a sweet maltiness. The taste is as the nose with the peach and citrus fruits large in the front and the bitter pine cleaning it up at the end. There is a very balanced malt sweetness in this one. This is a great beer that hides its big ABV masterfully. One of my favorite brews.
