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.

Can. It pours a golden color with a tall off white head. The aroma is floral with some fruit candy and honey. The flavor is the same. Sugary fruit candy with some florals. Honey sweetness with nice, balancing solid bitterness. Overall, not bad but too sweet.

Au nez, on dénote un fort côté résineux comme son nom en fait présage. On sent aussi un sucre presque bonbon et un malt caramélisé. En bouche, l'houblon se dévoile, mais est contrebalancé par un goût sucré qui rappelle un peu la pêche. En finale, le côté sucré rivalise bien avec l'amertume pour s'éteindre en même temps. Une bonne IPA différente de celles que je suis habitué de boire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting. A definite hop bomb, but with a slightly malty finish. I wouldn’t drink a lot of it.

This Ale has a copper gold color with a fruity hoppy scent. The flavor is juicy, jammy sticky resin, full of citrus notes with the perfect hop forward blast. Hail NY for such a delicious west coast inspired double IPA. Cheers!

Good, but nothing to floor you. Says what it means, and worth its price. Enjoyed it and would get again if there wasn’t another beer I hadn’t yet tried

355 ml. can sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Glad to finally try this one. Almost clear golden, little white head. Iron, citrus, lemon nose, very clean hops, light fresh pineapple. Bitter grass taste, touch odd & lingering, hop juice, resin, grapefruit, touch toffee, bit odd hop-profile. Light bodied. Nice but nothing stellar.

Wow I really like this beer. And now I know where to get it locally. Big resinny (sp) bitter hit but not in any way overpowering. The malt sweetness does a great job of balancing. Even though it’s fairly high alcohol, it doesn’t come across in the taste. I’m drinking from the can and it just feels right. It’s Headt Topper’s slightly younger brother. Well done.

Golden color, small head retention. Taste is crisp, floral and grass. The finish is surprisingly smooth compared to the up front hop bitterness. The finish is sweet and wheatie.

På burk @ Brew Dog Bar. Ljust bärnstensfärgad. Luktar humle. Len och mju smak med en perfekt beska.

This isn’t my favorite DIPA, but its high ABV is well hidden. I don’t really care for the hop profile. It’s not as crisp as I like. The mouthfeel is sort of thick and sticky. Still a good DIPA and definitely a bit different than most.
