COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and weíre ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isnít a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going íround this winter. It isnít our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. Itís 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 ó but rarely do Sixpoint beers adhere to any strict style demands.

From the 12oz can. Beautiful cloudy amber with a foamy lasting head. Big clean hops aroma. Full body propels a mellow bitter with some sweetness balanced with salt in the middle. Mellows further to a soft aftertaste. Overall this is a lovely, well behaved DIPA. This will become a house regular.

Lighter, cloudy taste. A little soapy and sweet. Who knew such a bold taste could come out if a little can??

bobaidan (527) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pours gold with a never ending head of tiny bubbles. Aroma is a field of hops. Medium in body with a creamy texture. A lot of hop bitterness is in the flavor with citrus and just enough sweet malt. Finish is bitter with a bit of an alcohol burn.

DuffMan (7828) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2013
Slim can. Medium orange-gold, foamy golden head of long duration and leaving copious sheets of lace. Full marks for appearance. Aroma is sweet orange and pine. Flavour is bitter orange and resinous pine with lovely creamy, sweet malts. Nitaís intensely bitter as Iíd expect from a brew boasting 103 IBUs, but still damn fine drinking.

Cavie (4013) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2013
Tap at Zio Carlo. Pours a clear copper orange color with a very foamy head. Lacing abound throughout the drink. Aroma is earthy hops, slight sweet notes, sap and resin. Leafy notes. Flavor is hoppy and very dry on the finish. Citrus fruity notes as well on the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sepia5 (237) - Connecticut, USA - APR 16, 2013
Pours a dark golden yellow with a lively, off-white head. Nose is pine and a bit of cat piss. Flavor is piney with a bit of bitter citrus peel. A nice IIPA and certainly the best beer Iíve had from Sixpoint, if not quite in the realm of some of the more noteworthy IIPAs.

Beautiful head after a vigorous pour. Smell is HOPS, and plenty (northern brewer?). Taste is sweet, citrus fruits, pine and hops. A little warm, and slight boozey feel. Definitely a great ipa.

zickbeer_ye (352) - Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2013
Fresh dry grapefruit and hop scents. Nice frothy head cloudy orange amber body. Crisp hoppy flavor with a dry grapefruit and tangerine finish. Crisp and refreshing on the palate. Quite delicious.

timberrr (43) - New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2013
Pours a hazy dark amber with a frothy white head which leaves a nice cap. Aroma of slight grapefruit but more of an earthy pine hop smell. Flavor is predominately floral, piney hops with a fair amount of bitterness. There is a little sweet malt in the background with a hint of citrus but not much. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty good IPA overall, not as well balanced as some but refreshing and flavorful.

S_Side_Smitty (578) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours orange-amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is pine & sweet malts. Taste really is resious with heavy - but not unpleasant - pine. A syrupy sweetness runs throughout the palate and a slightly astringent bitterness hits you in the finish. Not bad, if you like bitter beers.
