Just made a beer with torrey pine resin, 1/2 oz in 5 gal. It is turning out quite interesting. It adds a full, warming quality, and the flavor is hard to place, but nice.

I did a hoppy pale ale with centennials for all additions. And it tastes fine, but it is a bit like biting into a piece of pine wood. I always think of baseball bats when I have one. I do like it though. I would replace spruce tips with a centennial first wort hopping or flavor addition any day.
It could be worse.
