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.

Orange- copper pour, bubbly white head. Piney resinous aroma, with a bready malty sweetness in the background. Good punch of hops on the tongue, pine, resin, grapefruit and tangerine. There is enough malt to round it out. I don’t taste the abv. This is a solid DIPA, but I guess, due to IBUs, I was expecting more hop harshness, but it goes down easily and is still very good.

On tap at Taco Mac- Cumming. Pours a hazy copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, and pine. Taste just like the nose. Thick and chewy. Loads of fresh pine, resin, and citrus hops on the palate. Nice caramel notes follow. Very enjoyable. Bitter dry finish.

Weird little 355 mL can. Doesn’t look that big. Pour is fairly standard. Big, beautiful ASA-type aroma. Caramel, pine, and various citrus/tropical fruit. Sweetness comes first in the flavour, then booze, then bitterness.

I am on a mission to clear all my unrecorded rates before the end of July. Pours a clear dark gold with white head. Scent is mostly pine with feint hint of fruit. The bitter front end lingers just slightly too long before being overtaken by the sweet back end. The carbonation of this heavy side of thin brew is refreshing. Can - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Can. Pours a coppery orange with a medium sized off white head that leaves some rings of lacing. Nose has some dank hops, spice, and pineapple sweetness. Taste is moderately bitter and a little less sweet. Flavor is resinous with spice, light tropical fruit and a bit of caramel. Underneath is a surprising amount of toasted bready malt that comes through until the bitterness reasserts itself in the finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Good but not overly flavorful.

From a Red Bull shaped 355ml can at RBAG 2013. Golden and clear in the glass. Orange peels in the nose. Pretty clean taste with some orange peels and a bit of alcohol and a bit of spiciness. Medium bitterness. Drinks well for it’s abv. Overall a bit lighter than I was hoping for, I liked this, but wanted to love it.

Bottle - Orange and resin. Clear gold with a thin head. Resinous and a bit of spice and bitterness that lingers. Simple and decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at World Beer Fest in Cleveland, super strong double ipa, double the hops and intensity of normal, very bitter but delicious.

Wow, the abv is masked greatly in this brew. Not big on cans but, great poured in glass.
