Slight hazy amber/orange look.
Tangy/sharp/crisp taste. Too citrusy for my taste, be advised.
ABV 9.1, well hidden. You’ll know you’re drinking something, heavy hop presence prevails. Could buy again.

Resin is a fairly beautiful beer with an orange-amber color and tall white head. Freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice aroma with lemon and resin nose. Followed by moderate, honey-like malt. Flavor is a similar profile consisting of massive grapefruit, lemon, & orange. Moderate alcohol with a dry finish.

Poured into a glass from a can.

A - Pours a medium gold, forming a one inch head with medium lacing.

S - Piney, citrusy, and very perfumy hop aroma with a slightly sweet malt fighting to come through.

T - Caramel malt body hits the palate first, very sweet but not overpowering. I thought the hops would be more pronounced in the taste, but they only really become noticeable on the finish. Light piney hops, but more bitter than flavorful, just enough to balance out the malt body.

F - Heavy bodied with medium carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel.

O - More malt than hops on this one, but not so far out of balance. I wish it had more hop flavor and aroma, but the malt profile is actually very flavorful as opposed to being overly sweet to balance out the hop presence.

I picked up a 12 oz can at Total Wine for $2.99. I’m not too crazy about this one. The alcohol taste is much stronger than I prefer in a beer. I’ve had other 9 ABV DIPAs that had a much milder, well balanced feel. I probably won’t buy this again.

I enjoy this beer, very hop forward but still has some depth.

Interesting DIPA. Granted this can is 2 months old it's retained some of the better qualities. The name "resin" is appropriate for such a beer. Nice flavors non-citrusy for the IBU level just overall resin. Cool mouth coating feel that I did. Nose was not great at all. Would love to try this fresh
