3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can - thanks BlackIPA! Pours hazy amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is strong caramel, toffee, roasted malts together with pine resin and some citrus. Flavor is ditto, medium sweet medium bitter with some light phenols in the finish. Too much on the malty side for my taste; more like an extra bitter American Strong Ale.

12 oz. can. Real nice appearance. Hazy golden with yellow highlights around the edges. Plenty of retention. Aroma is quite resinous, with some citrus and bready malt. Taste is an absolute crazy amount of piney hop bitterness. I don’t taste malt. I don’t taste citrus. All resin. This one is medium-full bodied, with a thick, sticky/resinous mouthfeel, and sharp prickly carbonation. Well, it certainly delivers what it advertises. But it really is a bit overwhelming for me. I taste every bit of the 103 IBU. Try it but be ready for a bitterness assault.

Resin is an intense IPA with an amazing aroma and lingering hopping taste. This is a highly recommended happy beer.

Pours orange with a large off-white head. Smells hoppy, piny, resinous. Taste is bitter and hints of pine. Medium-to-full bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Sixpoint Resin finishes with a touch of bitterness.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can pours bright orange with a thin white head. Aroma is huge green, dank, wet pine hops. Flavor is pale grains and crackers with a huge dry pine and resinous grassy hop finish. Damn near perfect.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From can. Definitely pine tree sap, bitterness and malt. Pours transparent light orange with white head. Massive alcohol presence just under the immediate wash of hop resin and creamy caramel malt. Reminds me of Oskar Blues Gubna.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is pure piney hops. The flavor is pine/grapefruit, tropical fruit and a mix of syrup sweetness and tangy bitterness in the finish. The pine in this was definitely what stuck out and dominated over everything else.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Skinny 12 oz. can pours a hazy light orange with big off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of piney and citrus hops, as the name suggests, but with lots of sweet caranmel malts as well. Much smoother and easier to drink than I had expected from a 9.1% IIPA. Has a clean dry finish, as I expected, but this is not an outrageous hop bomb. Mouthfeel is a little sticky, without much carbonation. Medium body. Very enjoyable
