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.

Fresh can. The name certainly fits, with a healthy dose of pine resin in the aroma, but thereís also some grapefruit hops to make sure itís not a one trick pony. Dough and caramel are noted for the malt influence. Golden-orange color with a nice fluffy and lasting off-white head. Lacing scatters the glass after each sip. This has some sharp bitter hop flavors with just enough sticky sweet malt for support. Again, plenty of resinous hops here but some tangerine citrus notes too. Dry and bitter in the finish. Very drinkable while still packing a punch. Very good beer. Iím looking forward to trying some of their other beers.

The beer pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of resinous pine, with some sweet candy notes also thrown in. I also get a bit of toffee and biscuit malt in the aroma. The flavor is very similar. The pine and resin notes are very apparent, but there is also some juicy orange citrus thrown in for good measure. The biscuit malt is also present and keeps the bitterness in check, although it is definitely present. The hop flavors are very bold and are very well done. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. An excellent Double IPA. Glad to have this one in Texas.

Can. Pours a deep gold with a very high, fine-grained, ecru head. Nose is --shockingly enough -- resinous, with herbal and floral undertones; itís incredibly well balanced, and the beer smells amazing. On the tongue -- sweet baby Horus, itís got a bitter punch like grapefruit juice, with an underlying herbal sharpness and just -- and I mean JUST -- enough malt. Tongue-tinglingly persistent, the bitterness sticks around for a while, then moves in and starts to pay rent. If you are into hopbombs, this oneís for you.

(draught) cloudy gold, creamy fine white head. Nose of hop candy, bit funky, tiny bit of onion, sweet, hoppy and delicious. Taste of nice malt backbone, orange marmalade, bit biscuity, sweet and hoppy at the same time. Oily body, hop candy linger.

Orange amber in color. Decent citrus soap aroma. Very pleasing mild bitter citrus hops followed by a slick mouthfeel and slight medicinal aftertaste. Overall, cool looking can, I almost picked one up in the morning thinking it was a Red Bull. Very flavorful and potent. Iíll be buying some more.

New Beer Distributors, NY 12oz can: Pours a nice looking body with an off-white head. Aroma is floral and grapefruit. Taste is rather full. This ainít exactly chuggable, but it is comparatively drinkable. Nice flavor profile throughout. Malt backbone is just enough to counterbalance the hops. Quite a good show from the fine people at Sixpoint.

radio_nowhere (814) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Sampled this at local bottle store. Hazy copper color with small off-white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit citrus, alcohol and some caramel malt. Taste is decently bitter, balanced well with a little malt sweetness. Somewhat oily mouth-feel and syrupy, expected of a IIPA like this. Pretty good, need to grab some cans next time.

Deep golden color out of the slender, Red Bullesque can. Sticky, foamy white head. Orange marmalade, grapefruit Jolly Ranchers and alcohol fumes in the nose. Big beer with lots of grapefruit rinds, sticky sweetness, light toast, with some pineapple upside down cake and apricot jelly. Nice warming alcohol sense. Pretty solid IIPA, and I do love a craft beer in a can.

Foggy amber orange pour. Decent cream colored head with quite a bit of lacing. Floral hop aroma. Classic double IPA flavor. Citrusy grapefruit notes. Clean finish. ---Rated via iPhone

Milder floral aroma. Copper hazy. Big frothy head with top notch lace. The flavor is decidedly bitter and induces pucker in the palate. Goes down with a slightest burn and leaves your mouth quenching for the next sip.
