This beer is not what I expected being named Resin. Maybe it has to do with being shipped across the us from newyork to oregon. All I have to say is it smells alright pours a copper color all standard things from an india ale. But once it hit my pallet all i could think of is how much it tastes like they made some cheap malt liquor clone and dumped too many hops in the early stages of the boil. In any case i will never buy this again for 12 dollars a six pack its a complete rip off

This is a very enjoyable DIPA, with all the correct aromas and flavors. Lots of pine and a prolonged bitterness that is intense and pleasurable. A fairly thick body contributes to the enjoyment of drinking it.

Now this is "Mad Science" !!! This pours a nice gold/amber color with full-bodied head. It has a nice hop aroma with fruit to it. The taste is very pleasant in all areas of the mouth as well as feel from beginning to end... this rocks!!! I would put this up against a nice Belgium, but not quite Monk worthy...that would be tough. as for feel at 9.1 it is every bit of it. Smoooooth! Well worth a try.

Appearance: Hazy golden glass holds a cover of white foam the leaves lacing.

Aroma: That's a lot of hops. Grassy, leafy, skunky, with a little sweetness coming through too.

Taste: Hops are mostly citric and have tons of flavor without getting particularly bitter. The base is malty sweetness and fully supports all the hop.

Mouthfeel: Medium heavy body, slightly sudsy texture, mostly clean finish.

Overall: Big beer, I like it.

Fairly clear amber colored brew with nice frothy off-white, two finger head. Smells hop resin. Tastes is hop piney resins through and through. Maybe a little critus, but the pine hop lupulin takes the cake here. Medium bodied, sticky, and bitter sap aftertaste. Yummo!

Beautiful dark amber color, decent head, hops pack a punch in the front end but mellows out nicely due to high alcohol, most likely a generous amount of dextrose in the mix. Feel is definitely resenous as the hops coat your toungue on the way down. Great beer!!!
