COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and were ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isnt a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going round this winter. It isnt our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. Its 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.

The name of this beer caught my attention so I figured why not give it a try. Its pretty good. I wasnt sure what to expect with it so I kept my mind open. It was a very pleasant taste. Not a hop bomb, not a tropical fruit bomb but it did have a really hoppy bite to it and a nice malty backbone. It was super balanced and for never hearing about it I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely worth trying. I had it on tap, so Im not sure how it is out of the can.

chinchill (1801) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Slim, 12 oz. can poured into a snifter. BB dated on bottom of the can: 23 Aug. 2014. A - Pours with one and a half fingers oa proportionate off-white foamy head over a copper-colored body. The head soon settles to apartial coat but leaves nice, sticky lacing. Aoma: Pungent and fruity hops with some oniony spicy notes in the background. T: As expected. pleny of piney/resinous hops but remarkably little grapefruit. Surprisingly sweet and bready up front, but quickly turns fruity and moderately bitter. Nice lingering hops aftertaste without the typical grapefruit aspect. M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, O: a powerful DIPA without high bitterness.

Lives up to its name! Lots of pine in the aroma. Sharp bitterness comes through right away. Warm palate and mouthfeel.

lb4lb (2531) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
About a month before the best by date so its 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 isnt fresh.

Panzuriel (1299) - 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 (3) - 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.
