COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and we’re ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isn’t a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going ’round this winter. It isn’t our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. It’s a never-before-released, big beer in a slim, 12 oz. can with a potent burst of hops and as strong as an ox: Resin. We zeroed in on the botanical structure of the hop cone to get to the essence of this beer. When hops are at their peak maturity, their cores swell up with a sticky, golden, resinous substance that is the flavor you crave from an IPA. WIth an IBU of 103 and ABV of 9.1%, Resin can be loosely described as a double IPA — but rarely do Sixpoint beers adhere to any strict style demands.

12oz can into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a frothy one finger white head. Head retention is long lasting considering the strength with some spotty lacing. Aroma is a huge citrus punch of hops with a strong lemon-lime note; almost like opening a can of Sprite. There is a touch of vanilla in there as well. This is one of the more interesting aromas from an IPA I have experienced. Huge punch of citrus in the flavor as the lemon lime present in the aroma comes through in the taste. That same light vanilla note is present in the taste along with a light biscuit from the malt. Bitterness is absolutely over the top and really begins to get a bit taxing half way through the glass. Drinkability is surprisingly high with the alcohol very well hidden. Overall, this beer impresses me. Crazy high drinkability and a very unique hop aroma and taste compared to many other IPA/IIPA’s on the market. Definitely one to try.

Can from Whole Foods Miami Beach. Gold pour with white head. Very nice fruity, sweet and resinous aroma. Flavor is sweet up front with a slightly bitter resinous finish. Carbonation is pretty light and body is not as heavy as most double IPAs I have had.

Unbelievable hop aroma that is nearly soapy but robust w/ citrus flavors immediately draws you in to the hazy copper pour that has a big foamy white head & leaves lacing. The taste certainly reveals the 100+ IBUs & just a tad too much for my palate. The alcohol is hidden nicely & it’s certainly a tasty beer but just slightly too bitter for me. Nevertheless, very good!

Great tasting beer with smooth clean mouthfeel. Light with strong lasting hoppiness bit not overwhelming. Little lacing but decent head retention. Very smooth for 9.1%

ekstedt (5363) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
Draught at Haket, Göteborg, Sweden. Shady golden, medium white head. Bready malt aroma, some piney and perfumy hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness. Dull.

Soupoftoday (13) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2014
Slightly disappionted with this beer. It delivers a nice resinous mouthfeel with a pretty straight forward American cirtus/piney hop profile. The aroma is more subdued than expected and the taste, although fairly hoppy, is unbalanced in relation to the extreme lingering bitter aftertaste. Needs more late hop additions!

John25 (380) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Can. Almost clear burnt gold with a ton of lacing. Aroma is dank sweet pine. The taste adds super bitter resin notes but, there's also a metallic/solvent bite in the finish. The mouthfeel comes on with a strong attack and bite with high carb and a slick resinous finish. Pretty good but, lacking balance - could be much better and just as "big." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sudomorph (517) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
12fl oz can. Pours a cloudy orange with a white, fluffy, one finger head that laces. Mild sediment floating from the bottom of the can. Aroma is big and juicy. Resin, pine, citrus, and a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is bitter but with a faint, syrup sweetness. Resin, pine, a touch of citrus, and a hint of alcohol taste and warmth. Bitter, resin aftertaste. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Mild resin texture in the mouth. Overall exactly what the name implies. Resin, pine, some alcohol. A nice IIPA.

Solid DIPA, very hoppy and bitter with a strong aftertaste, high abv will kncok you back a bit, definitely a solid beer but probably not something I will add to my regular rotation.
