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.

Hazy gold-amber color with a nice short head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is all hop. It smells like a hop plant, itís that fresh smelling. It overpowers everything else except the alcohol. Alcohol comes through.on the nose. The taste is bitter but subtly. Itís not overt. There is also a sweetness that I cannot identify. A general oiliness is present.on the tongue. This beer is really good.

12oz? can from Simoneís, taste is like it smells, hoppy.. but this one is a little sticky for my taste, not bright just sticky and dank.. well done but not great.. dump tons of hops into beer and call it a day.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2012
Can at Bishopís Arms, MalmŲ, Norra Vallgatan
Cloudy light amber - orange color. Malt and caramel aroma, light puke, no hop. The malt and caramel flavor is quite good; the hop provides some resiny and citrusy character (bitter oranges); moderate residual sweetness. Long and strong final; some fruits in the final too, appreciated.
Solid IIPA, without shining.

Brickyard Gastropub in New York, NY. Draft. Sweet, hoppy aroma. Slightly off-white creamy head with so-so lacing. Near-perfect slightly-cloudy golden color. Soft mouth-feel. Nicely hoppy and bitter, and long-lasting on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can, stamp on the bottom says best before 26 November 2012. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Thereís a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (tropical fruit, grapefruit), pine hops, and some caramel malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but thereís some earthy/floral hops noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it has moderate carbonation and itís a bit creamy. Iíd like to try this fresher in the future. Itís a solid brew, but I prefer other Double/Imperial IPAís compared to this one. With that being said, this is still definitely worth trying.
