re-reviewed from may 2014, when i clearly had an out of date can.

part of a mix a six picked up at good ta go in Chambersburg pa last night.

looks really good. clear yellow body, decent head which dissipates to a ring and covering, but still leaves good lacing.

clean slightly hoppy aroma.

lovely taste to this one. good honest hop bite with a slightly sweet malt background. wonderful balance.

between medium and full on the mouth. sweet malt wash on the body of the tongue with the hops biting around the edge.

all in all an excellent DIPA, and my favorite six point beer so far.

Pours golden amber with a foamy off-white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of resin, pine, herbal/floral notes.

The taste shows the name is appropriate. Resin upfront and throughout. As bitter as it is - and it is - a caramel-ish backbone adds sweetness that keep the hops in balance and adds fullness and smoothness. Alcohol well-covered.

Full-bodied, full-flavored, but not thick.

Resinous, bitter, big and bold, this is "too" easy to drink. Strong but smooth. If you like a strong pine/resin character with a touch of caramel, this is certainly strongly recommended! Very nice DIPA to say the least!

Got this on tap at Mad Mex in State College, PA. For some reason it was served in a 12 oz rocks glass, as opposed to their normal snifter/ tulip for IPA;s. Oh well, they were busy tonight.

I'm not going to review this with my normal A, S, T, M, O because I'm doing it from memory.

The body was a nice orange copper with a short but thick off-white head. Lots of citrus on the nose. Great by itself, with a lot of bitter and citrusy hops showing up. Eating it with Mexican food, however, it was an entirely different beer. Some much more citrus fruit comes through when paired with spicy food. It's almost a tad sweet. Just delicious. Full mouthfeel.

I'll definitely be having this one again. I've always hesitated to pull the trigger on a 6 pack, but I think I'll do it now that I've had it.
