Beyond Resin by Upland Brewing Co. was judged as a 21a American IPA.

This beer pours mostly clear with a light haze. Deeply golden with a persistent white head that's very attractive. The aroma initially is intensely hop forward, showing guava and mango, followed by some durian and onion type notes. There's also a hint of oxidation here, showing as some honey type notes. Cleanly fermented with a light fruity ester, tending towards berry. At tasting, the bitterness seems on the lower side for the style, coming across most similarly to modern NEIPAs. Hop flavor is also quite juicy and loaded with mango, guava and onion. Through the finish, pineapple esters pop out. Refreshing, though could use a bit more bitterness. Medium bodied with matching carbonation and nice and smooth, no warming and some light creaminess. A really well made beer that should appeal to most fans of tropically tinged IPA. Surprisingly lacking in resin, given its name (which I learned after my write up). A touch more bitterness and this would be a world beater. Tasty stuff!
