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.

Resin pours a very clear, light gold color with a fluffy finger width head. Lots of tiny bubbles floating to the surface gives Resin an extremely appetizing appearance. The aroma is classic west coast hops. Full of citrus, pine and a bit of spice. In the flavor there is a fantastic mix of citrus and pine, with only a light malt backbone. Resin definitely showcases the excellent flavor and aromas of the hops. The slight spice is still present in the flavor. This is an incredibly easy to drink beer, with no hint of the 9.1% ABV. It is a little sticky (hence the resin?). Thereís an average carbonation, and a medium body. Overall: Sixpointís Resin is a superb double IPA. Setting this beer apart from other double IPAs is just how easy to drink it is. If I had wanted to, I could have thrown it back in a couple long swigs, itís just that good. Yet it is full of such great IPA flavor, without an intrusive hop bitterness. Sure, itís still a bitter beer, just not overly so. If you see this one at the store, pick it up!!!

Nice sweet hoppy nose. Good smooth flavor with a slow cheek burn of hops. Not at all hoppy on the top of the mouth. I guess I like it. :) Maybe this Sweet Action set me up well for it. I forgot to rate it I enjoyed it so much. Sixpoint makes some mighty fine beers.

Hoppy, but not overpoweringly so. Drinkable, but not in large quantities. Alcoholic.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 This is technically a double ipa but it does not taste like one. Has a real unique taste, not very bitter as the 108 ibu would lead you to believe. I like this one a lot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brief write-up. This is a rather malty, sweet DIPA, but at the same time, one thatís intensely bitter. Hops donít seem to provide much apart from aforementioned bitterness, while the malt profile gives off strong notes of toffee and earthiness. The lack of dryness really accentuates how piny the finish is. Iíd considering buying it again fresh.

Wittales (701) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Appearance was clear orangish gold with creamy white 2 finger lasting head, rings of lacing. Aromas are grapefruit, orange, pine, melon. Sweet pale, crystal malt backbone and no alcohol present. Taste are fruity hops of grapefruit, melon, orange, sticky pine and resin. Yummy. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting hoppy sweet malty finish. Wonderful DIPA, I wish could get some here, bottle share.

Dark yellow, fluffy head. Aroma is all orange and grapefruit hop. Taste is more of the same, unfortunately the body significantly detracts from enjoying any of the flavor. Flat and thick, syrupy. Combined with the one-dimensional bitterness, this one is hard to enjoy.

It pours a golden color leaving the same color body and mostly clear. There is a fair amount of carbonation which is seen rising. There is a one inch foamy white head. The lacing spider webs my chalice. The smell is hoppy and malty at the same time, piney and earthy, really nicely done. The taste is bittersweet between the malts and the hops, a spectacular taste on the tongue. It is about a medium on the palate with some slight sharpness a bit here and there on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA that I would come back to.

Pours light amber color with large off white head. Great aroma and very hoppy taste. Great beer for hopheads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Aroma is moderately hoppy, with dank and floral notes plus some caramel and alcohol. Taste is bitter up front followed by some grassy and dank hops. Finish is pretty strong alcohol, though it does blend pretty well.
