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.

On tap at the Blind Monk. Murky amber pour with a white head. Pine and woody hop aromas. Mild pine/wood/citrus hop notes. Not an overly malty beer, but yet the hops are not very bold. A little bland and muted. Decent body and mouthfeel.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Can and a few tap samples from time to time Purchased at Specs In El Paso, TX June 2013-pours bright orange with a nice fluffy white head. nose is mostly piney hops, not really all that punch however clean. nothing really gives this beer away-pretty standard however, its smells like an ipa that would have been brewed 8-10 yrs ago in terms of its lack of complexity. just alot of sort of resinous hops, pine and earth. not as dirty as say moylans but still a bit dirty. flavors exhibit the pine and resin in the hop notes with nothing really taking this one very far. very lite alcohol heat with lots of resinous notes long into the finish. pretty non-descript IIPA if you ask me.

4 pack of cans. Delicious beer. Surprisingly balanced and very drinkable for the high abv and ibus. Floral fresh hop flavor and sweet maltiness.

This little four pack is a little honey! Don’t let the can fool you this has a wallop of flavor inside! It is hoppy but is fresh and has a clean feel to it. It is not overpowering. I would take this fella if you went fishing or had nothing better to do than listen to Christopher Cross. I say if you are a fan of IPA go check it out! I say, yes!!!

can. lightly hazy gold with a very large, fluffy, white head. ctirus and pine with a bit of spicy cinnamon in the aroma. could there be some amarillo? very light and fluffy body. flavors are delicate balance of hop and malt sweetness, never too harsh or overly bitter. low carbonation, drinks like juice. abv is hidden. i’m really liking some these sixpoint offerings.

Aroma of grapefruit, citrus and flowers. The taste is similar. Complex flavour and aroma. Dry finish. Medium carbonation.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
pour is a nice orange, with about a finger of white head. Bitter zesty grapefruit nose. Sticky bitter hop flavor, bitter sweet finish. Not over bearingly hoppy. Good, not world class.

sebletitje (8957) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2013
Can @ Haket Bar, Göteborg. Courtesy of Inge. Orangée, col épais, crémeux beige. Arôme est bien houblonné qui renforce cette impression de houblons fermentés et relevé par un bouquet malté-caramel. Palais montre bien ses 9% avec au final une bière restant assez monodimensionnelle. Malt, caramel avec des notes de pin et citron. Note résineuse en fin de bouche, bière solide si ce n’est un peu trop forte.

Somewhat disappointing. Color and ample head is inviting, but the aroma and taste doesn’t live up to the description. Aroma is malty, lacking any hops. The taste is pretty much the same. Maybe it’s better on tap.

A - Pours a hazy honey amber with 3 fingers of cream colored head. The head melts slow and steady while leaving very little lacing. S - Pine oils, leafy green hops, spearmint, sweet pungent citrus, tropical fruits, dense pale malt. T - Follows the name, resinous pine with bright ruby red grapefruit, leafy green hops, faint mint, grapefruit pith bitterness quickly cuts through the sweetness. The hop oils blanket the palate. A shortbread malt provides mild sweetness with some saltiness on the back end. Has a bright grapefruit bitterness long through the finish. M - Oily, bitter, resinous, medium body, medium creamy carbonation. I love this DIPA! It’s everything I want in the style. Loads of sticky, oily hops, creating a bright sweetness but plenty of bitterness. I know people say this alot, but I would seriously have this in the fridge at all times if I could get it in Oklahoma. It’s nice to see a step away from the American Strong Ale, Barleywine category. Seek this out! Serving type: can 09-11-2012
