Poured from a slender 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass. (I guess for the price, I prefer Sixpoint's 16 oz cans): Bengali Tiger, etc.

A: The beer is a lighter, less hazed amber color, than Bengali Tiger, with a thick off-white head that fades slowly and leaves plenty lace.

S: Aroma offers all that BT does: grassy hops, fruity citrus, pine resin, caramelized & cracker malts.

T: Starts out sweet w layers of citrus and caramel that are followed by a resinous piney hops bitterness. The malt character is balanced. The after-taste is very hoppy and very long. The bitterness is peppery and well drawn out. Love it.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is long and clean.

O: In a side-by-side, I think Resin wins on smell, taste, finish, kick, depth. For every day, I think BT wins for look, and drinkability.

Resin pours a bronze color with a large frothy head. There is strong hop aroma. The taste has a huge hop flavor; hop bomb. Very strong flavors, very strong body and yet very drinkable. Overall its a fantastic IPA, full flavors, strong flavors, and yet so drinkable.

12oz can poured into a pint glass.

A: One finger head, cloudy copper orange, tiny little bubbles of carbonation. Splotchy patches spread on the glass as drinking.

S: Huge pine, sticky sweet caramel notes, esters, and grapefruit, a little tobacco as it warms up.

T: bitter grapefruit and spicy tobacco, and some sweetness imparted by orange and biscuits.

M: For all the bitterness, it's actually light to medium bodied beer. The sticky resin lingers on the mouth and is tolerable, not overly drying.

O: Solid from top to bottom. Delicious, aromatic, and relatively easy drinking. A go-to whenever I have a hop craving.
