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.

Smells grassy and piney with subtle hints of apricot and orange blossom. Taste is a bit more fruity with sweet apricot up front, some carmel flavors build towards the mid, but the resiny hops come in to clear out the sweetness on the finish. Nice easy mouthfeel, not too grippy for the IBU.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Tap at Mellow Mushroom, Spring. Pours a decent orange with a nose of wet hops, pine, and light grapefruit. Flavor is biting orange juice and grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12 oz can - pours clear orange-yellow with massive, rocky, white-tan fully lasting head. Big notes of piney citrus, resiny orange, and fragrant hops. Taste is sticky orange and citrus, lots of pine, with juicy bitterness at the long finish. Medium-full bodied. Not a IPA biter, but totally tasty. Will enjoy again.

(12oz can, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of pine, orange, and grapefruit. Flavor of pine, caramel, orange, and biscuit with a dry, bitter finish.

vt3stick (103) - Chicago, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Hoppy aroma with a hint of lemon. Strong hops but still well balanced. Cloudy pour with very little head. Has a little bite from the high ABU. Very refreshing D IPA.

From the can. No head, nice light golden color. Pine note at the front with a typical IPA flavor in the back end. A nice IPA overall.

12 oz slim can. The look is clear, off whitish head, and golden in color. The smell is very hops, resinous, grassy, caramel, sweet, stale and not bad. The taste is hops, smooth bitterness, chessy, grass, caramel, pine, and ok.

Nice overall. Hoppy, but not overpowering. Fairly smooth finish with not a lot of bite. Good flavor.

Not as nice as their normal IPA - the alcohol and sweetness outdid themselves. Still respectable.
