Medium golden color, with medium carbonation. The head was about one inch thick and faded almost immediately. Quite cloudy. I don't think the beer looks overly inviting, nor vibrant in color or texture.

I immediately smelled pine, and resiny. Actually, lots of pine. And a boozy smell as well.

Dominantly pine, but also hints of honey and citrus. Now, the more I think of it, the carbonation is biting. But it's still a refreshing drink.

The beer and resin flavor resonates on the tongue.

Overall, to me, this is a decent beer. Now, I could be spoiled, because as of late I've had the pleasure of drinking Heady Topper, Zombie Dust, Gumball Head, Dirt Wolf, and others. But I've also recently had HI-RES from Sixpoint for the first time, and I must say, that has RESIN beat hands down. Nonetheless, a decent beer.

this was a stellar IPA!

Aroma was very piney, citrus, grapefruits, very hoppy, and a bit of sweetness.

The taste was phenomenal. Very refreshing, well balanced, had a very nice malt backbone paired with pine, citrus, sweet oranges, delicious hops, a very west-coasty IPA style.

I would definitely buy this again. At 11% abv, i did not taste the alcohol whatsoever!

Pours a super hazy dark amber. Thick head of foamy bubbles.

Upfront aroma of honey and wild flowers. Followed by citrus hop resins.

Very dominant citrus rind notes. Grapefruit and lemon. Pine resins and honey.

Biting carbonation. Each sip leaves an oil slick of hop resins on the tongue.

This brew lives up to it's name. Resinous hop flavors and oily resinous mouthfeel. Never disappoints.
