The Pine Resin aroma confers a pleasant balsamic note to Beer. This, in turn, augments the perception of "freshness" in the beer. The Pine Resin aroma is an easily recognizable scent as it is added to many household cleaning products and perfumes.
In beer, this aroma is due to the use of North American hops, in particular that of Simcoe. It is always a positive attribute and can be found in many American Pale Ales and American IPAs (APAs).
