Can. Pours a hazy golden orange with a short lived white head. Aroma is hops, resin, pine tree. Flavor is hoppy, citrusy, fruity. Finish is very bitter, some lemon, grapefruit and other citrus, floral. Very well balanced. Medium to strong body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very solid. shroud0fdoom (150) - Maryland, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Look: Bright orange body, 1 finger white head. Smell: Dense pine, red papaya, dank floral, sweet cereal grains. Taste: Wet pine, papaya, passion fruit, mild mint, hints of citric rind, smooth clean bitterness, slightly dry finish. Feel: Medium body, bubbly carbonation. Overall: I don’t know why I haven’t review this brew before, but yeah the name says it all. Hop Resin is what this brew contains. The Malt and Hops actually work hand in hand with each other so no one screams "I’m the greater". When warms the Tropical notes dominate. This brew is Recommended. Thewade (340) - USA - AUG 9, 2013
Excellent IPA. Hoppy, but well balanced. Light in color, it’s not typical of most "double IPA’s". 9.1 ABV is extremely well hidden. Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Orange- copper pour, bubbly white head. Piney resinous aroma, with a bready malty sweetness in the background. Good punch of hops on the tongue, pine, resin, grapefruit and tangerine. There is enough malt to round it out. I don’t taste the abv. This is a solid DIPA, but I guess, due to IBUs, I was expecting more hop harshness, but it goes down easily and is still very good. ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac- Cumming. Pours a hazy copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, and pine. Taste just like the nose. Thick and chewy. Loads of fresh pine, resin, and citrus hops on the palate. Nice caramel notes follow. Very enjoyable. Bitter dry finish.

ugh, resin is right. like drinking a bottle of pine needle concentrate. to be fair, its good for what it is. its just not for me. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Weird little 355 mL can. Doesn’t look that big. Pour is fairly standard. Big, beautiful ASA-type aroma. Caramel, pine, and various citrus/tropical fruit. Sweetness comes first in the flavour, then booze, then bitterness. EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2013
I am on a mission to clear all my unrecorded rates before the end of July. Pours a clear dark gold with white head. Scent is mostly pine with feint hint of fruit. The bitter front end lingers just slightly too long before being overtaken by the sweet back end. The carbonation of this heavy side of thin brew is refreshing.

Can. Pours a coppery orange with a medium sized off white head that leaves some rings of lacing. Nose has some dank hops, spice, and pineapple sweetness. Taste is moderately bitter and a little less sweet. Flavor is resinous with spice, light tropical fruit and a bit of caramel. Underneath is a surprising amount of toasted bready malt that comes through until the bitterness reasserts itself in the finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Good but not overly flavorful. pintbypint (3641) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
From a Red Bull shaped 355ml can at RBAG 2013. Golden and clear in the glass. Orange peels in the nose. Pretty clean taste with some orange peels and a bit of alcohol and a bit of spiciness. Medium bitterness. Drinks well for it’s abv. Overall a bit lighter than I was hoping for, I liked this, but wanted to love it.
