Great for an IPA. I'm really into the more bitter IPA's w the citrus taste and delicious bitter after taste to take away from having to take a sip every 5 seconds. If you enjoy imperials definitely give Resin a try. First try from Six Point but mos def On Point! Enjoy!

A full body. A little oily taste. Great!

Best By July 7, 2015 Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

L- Light amber/deep gold, some chill haze, one finger white head.

S- Has a sweet smell of citrus and some stone fruit with a very slight bubble gummy thing, the alcohol is a bit noticeable.

T- Has like a honey sweetness that I wasn't expecting, more stone fruit of unripe nectarine and apricot, grapefruit, not as piney and resiny as expected. Some alcohol but the sweetness is helping to cover it up.

F- Thin syrup, at the lower end of the carbonation for the style.

O- A friend picked this up for me and according to the best by date it is fresh but this must have been stored improperly or something because I'm not tasting big sticky pine notes like many other reviewers are getting. A bit disappointed with this one. It has a sweetness I don't really care for and being called 'RESIN' I was expecting lots of sticky pine but didn't really get that.
