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.

(Dose @ CH-Dez13) Es hat eine orangegelbe Farbe, ist leicht trüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr fruchtig, mit frischem grünen Hopfen in der Kopfnote, sonst fruchtiger Hopfen, mit Johannisbeere, Mango und lichten Zitrusfrüchten. Der Geschmack ist ähnlich wie das Aroma, samtig, medium bodied, leicht süßlich und sehr bitter. Der Abgang ist sehr bitter und samtig.

Dense pine citrus hop aromas. Shared 12 oz can brought back from NYC by my uncle given as a gift. Great flavors here that live up to its resin name.

Very orange in color. White had that dissipates pretty fast. Has a hoppy savory onion aroma. Really bitter flavor. Lots of floral taste. Sharp on the tongue. Ok beer.

9.1% picked up in Copenhagen, I love these cans & the slogan "Beer is Culture". Fantastic orange gold color which to me is perfect for an IPA. Amazingly huge hop bouquet from this tiny can. Resin, pine, fruits, super appetizing. Fruity but then bitter with a resinous taste in the finish followed by more fruitiness. Really nice, I want to try more of Sixpoint’s stuff! Oh this is past the best by date(Sept. 17th, 2013) but it’s still damn good.

Can exp date 10/30/13, cloudy dark gold hue with thick creamy white head, some lacing, smells of a spicy resin, some grapefruit smell and taste, short but sweet? bitterness, on the lighter side for a DIPA, similar to Firestone Union Jack best beer I have ever had from NYC?

Orange, a touch of haze, good head and sticky lace. Aroma and flavor match the name, very resiny hoppy, with a touch of malt backbone just for a hint of the semblance of balance, and the lightest sweetness. Hops mostly dominate tho, with pine, citrus, a touch of spice perhaps. Body is very nice, almost chewy, much thicker than many double IPAs, but that doesn’t take away at all, if anything it’s a plus. Resinous, bitter, oily finish. Very nice, I’m glad I picked up a four pack. I will try another four pack of a different sixpoint beer next time I shop for commercial beer. My only suggestion for the brewery is that their packages aren’t clearly labeled as to what style of beer is contained within. I was a little hesitant to pick up a four and try them because I wasn’t sure which one was which style. Decided to just take a chance on this one, figuring resin COULD mean IPA or IIPA (but I suppose it could have meant other things too). Overall, a very tasty and interesting take on a IIPA. I will certainly buy this one again. I like the slim-line cans too, they fit on the door of a fridge more efficiently.
