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.

Pour is nice light copper with a thick white head. Nose is floral and citrus with hints of biscuit. Taste is less hoppy that I would imagine with more of a baked bread taste though the hop bitterness comes on at the end, with more floral and pine than citrus. Mouthfeel is medium light to medium aftertaste is bold and lingers for a bit. Overall a nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Comes out of the growler a pretty clear amber with a thick, foamy and fine-bubbled ivory head that "pillows" some. The sample I got foamed like a mad dog after I cracked open the growler, so be forewarned. Aroma is not strong, but it invites with its resiny, evergreen aroma that has woody, malty and citrus underpinnings. Flavor is definitely more robust than the aroma - quite hoppy, rather bitter, more resiny than woody, hints of citrus and malt. They ain’t kiddin’ on 103 IBU! Ragged, lively texture has good firmness and lots of tingle, dancing all the way down the pipes. A toast to Sixpoint for finally coming to Atlanta!

12 oz slim can. Pours hazy orange with a one finger white head and gobs of lace. Strong pine resin aroma. Made me think of the big pine tree I spent a good deal of time in when I was a lad. Secondary sweet malt. Lots of pine resin and grapefruit in the flavor, although there is enough sweetness to keep the bitterness from being overwhelming. Full, resinous palate with a bitter finish. A must try for hop heads.

Can 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Orangy beer all in bitter aromas, also fruity of orange and dry apricot. The mouth is round, soft, immediatly overwhelmed by bitterness in tizzy, pine, citrus, resin and oil. Hints of alcohol, pepper, toffy, sticking. Focus on the hop, without stopover, low shades in taste, aptly named.

Canned. It pours a hazy amber beer with a creamy head. Caramel and quince throughout. Leafy. Nice balance between malt and hops. Good bitterness.

A great dipa! poured from a growler. Head is about 1-2 fingers that slowly builds up after a pour, bubbles are fairly spread apart but nice carbonation and lacing. Smell is citrussy with a good malt backbone. Taste is citrussy with a hop resinous mouth. Not to biteror grapefruit pith taste. Bitterness lingers but not over the top. Strong but not boozy. Definitely a repeat buy.

A very nice double Ipa. Very hoppy aroma with a tiny sweet undertone. Taste was very hop forward, nice citrus bite, this beer lives up to the resin name. Just sits on your tongue lol. A great beer for a hop head.

12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured cloudy amber with little white head. Aroma is beautifully strong from the second you open the can it hits you like a ton of bricks; in your face piney/citrus hops combined with malts. Taste is super bitter but somehow it works great because it is pretty well balanced with the sweetness of the malts. Great beer extremely enjoyable.
