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.

Hangover (1117) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Orange pour with a rather large white head. Strong hoppy aroma of citrus and pine. Lives up the name, with a resinous and thick hoppy mouthfeel. Mostly citrus flavors, orange and grapefruit. Lingering hoppy bitterness. Malt profile is good enough to stand up the the hops. Very tasty. Cool little redbull type can also.

haukur (1802) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 9, 2013
late night in Key West just after the sun went down after a very humid day. Insanley crisp, grassy and piney aroma. Slight malty sweetness on the palate, long bitter finish. Subtle for the style and enjoyable

dunn4040 (129) - Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours a beautiful opaque golden-orange color. White head, decent lacing on glass. Little head retention. Tastes of citrus, medium hoppy bitterness, pine, light mango, and spices. Nicely carbonated yet feels full in the mouth. Hoppy, crisp, and full are all words that come to mind as I take a sip. The alcohol is well hidden in this one seeing that it clocks in at 9.1% Overall a solid IPA. Not the best Iíve ever had but it probably cracks the top 10-15. Well worth the try.

rlgk (18323) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
SBWF 2013. Clear amber/orange beer with a decent offwhite head. Creamy fruity aroma, bitter hops, caramel, citrus, mango, grass notes. Fruity hop flavor, caramel, raisins, floral notes, some hay. Fruity hop finish with biscuits and some woody notes. A bit unclean.

Defreni (3006) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2013
DŚse: Flotgullet diset Ýl medet stort flot skumhoved. Fantastisk duft af mango og en tand citrus. Smagen er igen lige i skabet. I det hele taget en stor overraskelse at Ýllen er sŚ god efter en tur over atlanten.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bought at The Beer Temple in Chicago, IL. $9 four pack. Drink by December 17th 2013 ... Iíd assume that this is pretty fresh, since thatís over 5 months away. I just poured this one into a standard pint. Appearance: A slightly hazy yellow-orange color. Two finger off-white head stays for awhile before turning into just a thin layer on top. The lacingís pretty patchy, but I really enjoy that mini-head that floats on top. Smell: Super sweet aroma thatís easily the highlight of this beer. Resinís an appropriate name ... the resinous sort of piney hops are definitely the highlight mixed with almost a cotton candy sweetness. There may be some of the ever-popular non-descript tropical fruit aromas as well. Taste/feel: Like a guava or mango sort of flavor almost all the way with a lot of sweetness at the start. At the middle and back of the mouth, this explodes with the resin/pine character, and thereís a solid bitterness. While thereís a pretty big herbal kind of bitterness (103 IBUs), Resin seems to get less bitter with the more I sip it. The mouthfeel is pretty lightly carbonated with a medium/light sort of feel. I donít mind the feel, since this could easily be cloying if it were much thicker, but Iíd like a bit more carbonation, maybe. Burps (yes, Iím factoring in burps) are just an awesome piney/earthy flavor. As the beer warms up, I get a pretty distinct caramel or toffee sort of note in the aftertaste. Very good beer. I feel like it drinks a little flat, but thatís a pretty minor problem I have with a beer thatís pretty outstanding as a whole. It has a nice look to it, thereís a great sweet piney aroma, and it tastes better than a lot of other IIPAs Iíve had. If this were available in Michigan, Iíd get it pretty often.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2013
A real ropey, pinetree dank hop aroma. Darker orange, like a barleywine in overall look. Bitter blast of hops as the name indicates, maltier than expected. Full body pallet ripper. Highly recommended.

Has it out of a can. Pours a frothy white head with a hazy orange hue. it has a subtly yet firm and ever-present resiny pine aroma, and a smooth hop taste.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz can. Poured a hazy golden honeycomb color with a two finger white head. Aroma of dense pine, herbal and earthy hop notes, some grapefruit and citrus as well, slight caramel malt in the background. Flavor has lots of pine, citrus, and high bitterness but the caramel malt comes in at the end to balance it out, but the deep hop flavors dominate, with a slight hint of alcohol. Medium bodied, minimal carbonation, smooth and slick.

Straight on one dimensional alcohol delivery vehicle, this 2XIPA has a hazy golden medium body with green hop and grainy alcohol sweetness. Resin is strong and bitter packaged in a slim can.
