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.

Poured from a can. Aroma is a big one here as I could smell this a armís length away. Nice melon, stone fruit, and subtle pine in the flavor. Pretty drastic change start to finish as it began with a very heavy sweetness and finished with a punchy dryness that lingered. This followed a hop slam and quite honestly I thought this one was executed much better.

So much to like about this! I also prefer it from the can vs a glass. Great balance, abv is hidden well, finishes clean, nothing but good things to say. Even the packaging is stellar.

Can. Pours golden with thin off-white head. Aroma is Grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is sweet pineapple grapefruit and anise with a bitter alcohol grapefruit zest finish. Good.

This stuff is pretty okay. Itís a strong hoppy beer w/ lots of melon and tropical fruit. Itís quite bitter but not harsh, a little bit sweet and juicy w/ some woody pine notes around the edges. It is pretty drinkable for the style--albeit a bit on the heavy side for my tastes. It really doesnít stand out to me as particularly good or bad but I reckon it will do in a pinch for most hop heads.

Can at the Lincoln Wine Bar. Crisp, citrusy aroma. Generally a dry, bitter bear. Crisp, clear flavors. Good beer.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 Amber-yellow color. Clear with a white, disappearing, head of foam; wish the head was more resilient. At least as hoppy as any IPA should be - especially an imperial. Acidic. Tastes of lemon peel. The bitterness compliments the acidic nature and leaves a crisp-bite finish. Pretty sweet overall.

Flowery aroma. Hoppy, some dried fruits. Pretty decent. Flavor is quite sweet. Mildly bitter, bit of a yellow fruit feel as well. Nice hopbitter in the end. Full bodied, sticky texture... Definitely a good quencher.

Can poured to a snifter, and enjoyed along with the Brewdogs watching the Brooklyn episode. I donít watch this show as much as I would like, but it definitely inspires me to drink good beer at the same time. Especially if I have a bottle or can of the same beer they are drinking. Can picked up in Portland. Hop heavy aroma. Fruity up front, with a huge blast of tropical like hops in the finish. Like a sweet mango. High carb. Sweet, and very flavorful. Delicious imperial. Wind blowing over both testes.
