COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Sixpoint Resin is a clear, golden ale covered in a soft, thick, yellowed foam that leaves intricate lacing on the glass. It has a strong, fresh aroma of grapefruit and lumber. It smells almost a touch sour-- "nose tart". It’s very full and soft in the mouth and it leaves the tongue a little singed. It’s bursting with fresh hop flavor and quite bitter. Grapefruit peel bitterness becomes wooden and, finally, resiny at the finish and throughout the aftertaste, where it picks up some juniper and black pepper. The whole affair is pretty dry. I really love a beer like this. It’s strong and heavy enough to support all those hops and the malt never creates any conflict.

12 oz. can served in a FFF 15th Anniversary pint. Best by date of January 2013. A: Pours a clear amber color with a one finger off white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a frothy collar and leaves some traces of sticky lace behind. S: Definitely lives up to its name so far. Big pine needle and resinous hops are right up front with this guy. Some candied sugar sweetness with a little alcohol flavors. T: Piney and resinous hops, but there is lingering malt bill that makes it a little sweeter. Definitely hop oils create a lingering bitterness that lasts through out. There is also a lingering alcohol flavor as well. M: Medium bodied. A little sticky with medium carbonation. Lasting bitterness in the finish. O: Ho hum in my book. Pretty one dimensional in the flavor. Definitely take a pass on this one. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 06-17-2012

Can (12 oz). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Unclear orange with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma of resinous hops, fruits and slight honey. Taste is malty (maybe a little too much) and resinous hops. Slight floral notes. Mouthfeel is dry. Good DIPA but it would be even better if less malty.

12 oz. skinny can from Gretchen- thanks a lot, Gretchen! Pours a cloudy sunny orange color with a small white head that laces the glass. Aroma of citrusy, sweaty, resinous hops, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and fresh salad. The flavor is loaded with fruit, with mango, tangerine, grapefruit, melon, and pineapple, and sweet malts and pine. Medium-bodied, with a juicy, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Lives up to its name.

Can. Copper orange with decent head. Aroma is a nice mix between dank (weed, onion, resin) and fruits (tangerine, pinneaples). More malt than your standard word-class DIPA. Very bitter, grassy and honey malts. The alcohol presence is a little overwhelming. A very decent DIPA which would have benefit from a lower profile.

BigBeer45 (1265) - Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Can, this ale had a burnt orange (copper) pour and made an initial two to three finger faint off-white, creamy head of bubbles that had a little orange tint to them, the glass had gentle effervescence flowing in the center, it left some small spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, there were hops that had aromas of nice floral, citrus and hints of sweet nectar, toasted malt, faint bread malt, some orange and lemon pith citrus, orange fruit and sweetness along with malt sweetness, the flavors were citrus and resin hops with toasted malt, bread, and orange fruit, malt sweetness, a little light for a IPA2, the mouth feel was medium or a little more, there was some creaminess on the tongue, I thought it was a little light on the palate for a IPA2 but it was nice on the tongue, no alcohol flavor but there was a touch of alcohol heat that went well with the hop bitterness, this drink had a nice hoppy nose, good IPA2.

Can. Pours an amber color with a fairly thick white head. Moderately hoppy in the nose, thought it’s a tad hoppier in the taste. Good brew, but not my fave in the style.

bytemesis (3431) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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.
