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.

Can courtesy of "AKFaust". Colour...dark gold with a thick off white head. Nose...leans towards the grapefruit side as opposed to the pine side, with wisps of citrus pith, to boot. Palate...ahhhh! Hereís where the "resin" comes out to play! A very resinous, though not cloying, hoppy aspect is present and saying, "Hey look! Iím here!! The grapefruit comes back as does a semi-piney flavour with a semi sweet candy like flavour reminiscent of citrusy boiled sweets. A dandy IPA that is indeed resinous!

Aurelius (4963) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Huge, vaporous, hempy aromatics - pineapple and toffee tones. Mostly clear, light bronze beer. Immense fluffy head, which lasts a long time. Green Red Bull-style 12 oz can whcih made me think I was having an 8 oz beer. Smooth and assertive at the same time - sort of a James Bond effect. Lots of hops, a certain sweetness, light candy (brickle, toffee), bongwater. Finishes out with a dry maltiness and with a moderate hop bittering which fades with extreme reluctance. Pretty impressive. ABC Liquors, Betton.

gringo332 (600) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Big hop aromas with lots of pine, earthy and herbal notes. Not for beginners, big hop flavor and the abv comes through in the body of this one in a way that makes me wanna say you could cellar a bottle of this for a year or two and that would do it some good. Crisp bitter finish decent beer.

Strong flavor with a smooth taste of pine and alcohol. The beer got a rich hue color and the aroma is rock solid. For the true beer drinker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nick76 (4368) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2013
The aroma is very hoppy with pine resin and citrus. There is also quite a but of malt. The appearance is deep gold with an amber hue and a large head for an IIPA. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth and the finish has a slight bitter bite. Overall a solid IIPA.

PhatB420 (834) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2013
12oz can into a fresh 16oz mug for cabin 2013. Color is awesome, like a neon glowing orange omitting special forces with the power of something like kryptonite, but with hops as the focus. Sweet, juicy full hops fill the beer, cone hops and pine abound. Freshness omits from the aroma, grass, citurs, pine, and hops. Head is minimal at rising then mellows out and hangs around. Mouthfeel is full of hops, bitter but not too over bearing. There is alos a floral quality in both the aroma and the taste. A fine drinking dipa from sixpoint. very nice.

Very, very nice DIPA, and which is the ultimate in truth in advertising. Surprisingly pale pour. Flavor is hoppy bitter, with a balanced resin-forward profile per its name. I've had more resiny IPAs (El Toro), but this one is by far the most balanced in bringing that aspect to the forefront while still remaining eminently quaffable. Recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (16229) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Can at Max Burger, Longmeadow, 18/05/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head which clears to a film. Good lacing ensues. Nose is caramel, hops, pine, grass, bitter tropical fruit notes, grapefruit. Taste is caramel malt forward, bitter hops, tropical fruits, light pine. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. OK DIPA but far from top draw.

thebsmitty (138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Canned. Pours bold golden color with medium head and medium lacing. Smells of pine, floral, tangerine. Bold hop profile but not overpowering tasting like pine, citrus, and balanced malt background for in a sweet and hoppy ending. Great stuff.

Great fresh hop taste in an IPA. Beautiful reddish-orange hue, and at 8.99 a 4-pack it'a pretty much a steal ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
