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.

lb4lb (2582) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
About a month before the best by date so it’s probably not super fresh. Pours a glowing orange with a whitehead. Smell is caramel and orange and slightly hoppy but not very much so probably due to it not being super fresh. Taste is slightly alcoholic somewhat sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body with normal carbonation. Not as hoppy or dry as I would have liked but perhaps because it isn’t fresh.

Panzuriel (1698) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2014
On tap at melt bar and grilled columbus ohio. Resin is a deep reddish amber hazy brew with a full head of light white tiny bubbles. Nose is strong evergreen hops. Taste is sharp and crisp with cedar and evergreen notes. Body is light but lively. Finish is good bitters with a touch of sweetness. a very nice beer.

Glucose (4) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Poured from a freshly tapped keg. The pub I got this at has 25?+beer lines from keg to faucet, so the head for most of their draftpours is usually pretty well under control and dissipates quickly,which was the case here.Nothing unusual about the appearance - standard amber withquickly dissipating cream-colored head. I didn?t get much for nose except some small hints of apple, andthe expected pine/citrus. I always seem to rate the last beer I?vehad to drink, by which time my nose is well anaesthetised.Mea culpa.Lovely rich, luscious double IPA, a touch on the sweet, malty side,but definitely balanced out with strong hoppiness - both low pine& citrus as well as fruity notes. Almost more fruit in the nose thanthe taste, though. Mouth feel was rich & "chewy". Just had another at the Thirsty Moose in Dover NH. Experience flipped almost 180 degrees with respect to nose and flavor. Almost no nose, but a great deal of fruit/apple along with pine and citrus on the tongue. Still stand by my other comments. Awesome.

Dark slight haze golden color, thick lite head. Aroma is piney resinous with some floral fruity notes. Strong malty flavors, piney hoppy flavors, acidic citrusy finish with lingering mild bitterness. Different than other DIPAs, Resin is a good name for this beer.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 12 mini small can from a 4 pack (which is in my belly) served in my stolen DH glass (delivered from Couch Potato Austin)- poured a 50 % translucent copper tan color with several floaties present when held to a light source. Aroma of pine after I step out the door in Minnesota (but I’m from MI- nevermind Obama lovers- true story by the way), Hits the mouth with a medium body, some light caramel is mixed with the malt, but nothing overpowering, middle holds up with the beginning of a decent hop wave, finish is very acidic, and begs for another sip. Overall- fantastic drinking brew lately. Perhaps middle of the road a few years prior, but considering ALL BREWERIES LATELY are playing with themselves, I’ll take what I can get.

Elle est ambrée et embrouillée alors que sa mousse est fugace et sans intérêt pour le tissage. De beaux arômes d’agrumes charment d’emblée le nez. Ensuite, c’est son côté floral qui prend la relève. On détecte aussi du miel, des herbes et du poivre. Des saveurs fruitées agréables passent en imprégnant la bouche et en y laissant un arrière-goût, une belle et douce amertume de pamplemousse rose, avec ses particularités quelque peu sucrées. Elle est bien ronde et se boit à grandes gorgées. Encore une fois, merci Isabelle, (1067-060514)

beastiefan2k (3208) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Red Bull like can, BB June 2014. Poured into shaker at bar. Medium head, hazy dark gold color. Well, no need to go much into detail. Its overly astringent alcohol and malt mix and green bitter hops. As described by the name nothing but resin and high octane. No bueno. I have rated my worst 5 of 6 Sxpoint beers in the past year. I’m only drinking them at this point to crack their top 5. This brewery is, otherwise, a waste of my time.
