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.

From a can. Taste of mildly piney hops. Similar to a DIPA, but has itís own distinction. Quite nice!

DialSquare (2308) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2012
12oz can from Andersons in Sylvania (I think). Orange pour with a modest white head and sporadic lacing. Aroma is big tropical fruit - pineapple, mango, grapefruit. Tastes are toasty malt, caramel, citrus, herbal, resin, pine. Nice medium palate. Covers the alcohol well - just a little warmth. Good - very drinkable.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Can from Half Time. Pours light amber with a creamy/bubbly white head. Aroma is resin and citrus over a nice light caramel. Med body. Flavor is hoppy - resin, with a decent amount of citrus. Thereís a mild resin burn. Clearly this is bitter and hoppy. Not necessarily the same thing, but this time it is. Very good ale.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2012
This beer is freaking delicious - for the hopheads anyway. The aroma is the next best thing to smelling a bunch of hop pellets. Pours hazy gold with a lasting head. Bitter, small malt presence but a clean easy finish. Damn I love this IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Juicy Eastcoast DIPA. Wonderful appearance, aroma, and flavor. A once break from the normal Westcoast consistency.

Huhzubendah (2258) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Can gifted by drabmuh. Tick! Thanks Matt. The beer is transparent and copper / amber colored with over an inch of thick, tan head. Excellent retention and copious lacing on the glass. The aroma does indeed offer strong notes of resin, fresh hops, pine. Nice. A dance of pine, fresh hops, and malty backbone. Pretty well balanced, with the 9.1% abv masked well. Lingering pine and bitter hops in the finish. The beer coats the palate, but still goes down easily. Overall, a solid beer that I would certainly have again.

milewide (1386) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Some floral hop aroma, and lingering hop bitterness. Medium amber body, with modest head. Alcohol was especially noticeable in aftertaste. Slim, 12 oz. can was different. Good, but not great DIPA.

glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Can. Light to moderate roasted grain for the malt, citrus peel and dried grass for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with cardboard and dried fruit in the background. Head is average size, creamy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, medium amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a soft to lively carbonation. A little short on some of the common DIPA characteristics, but this is still a great beer.
