12oz can poured into a pint glass. Can is funny shaped. Never saw a tall, skinny 12oz can before. Best before 24 February 2014.

Pours clear with a slight coppery tint. Started out with a pretty, creamy looking head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is slightly muted, but piny and pretty, floral, lemony citrus.

Taste is refreshing, nice blend of hops and malt. I get lemon and lemon zest, pine, honey and chamomile sweetness, long bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light and this. Overall, this is a very good beer.

The hop aroma sprang from the can as soon as I pulled the tab, and I knew I was in for a treat. It poured a golden amber with a nice frothy head with plenty of lacing. The aroma had loads of citrus and floral hops and the first taste exploded with hops that started at the front of my tongue and raced through my palate. The Resin had a well balanced hop profile with some soft pine notes along with the citrus and floral hops. The alcohol presence was noticeable but not overbearing. Overall a solid Double IPA.

Poured it from a can into a pint glass. A beautiful looking beer with a great balance between the hops and malt. Slightly piney in the scent and the taste, but not overdone. A rather quaffable double, despite the high ABV. The alcohol is well hidden. Don't let it sneak up on you.
