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 on the Black Country Train Tasting Part I. The pourís deep gold with a small head. The nose is strong resinous pine. Pineapple, mango. Cake batter. The taste is somewhat boozy, slick. More pineapple. Plenty of pinecone. Strong bitterness on the finish. Full body, drinks the full ABV. Overall, OK.

Bottle. Unfiltered ipa with medium foam appearance. Smells really fresh hops. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Nice caramel, bitter, hop finish. Some alcohol at the very end. Overall: starts great with nice hop aroma, but a little to boozy and bitter in the very end.

Wow. An amazing beer from the marketing, can and of course product. Purchased at Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Tulip at home. Pours a hazy orange-light brown with a thin head. Good lacing. The aroma hits you hard with pine, citrus and earth smells. It smells like...well hop resin. The first taste made my taste buds shutter. It is powerful hops, no doubt. Pine, citrus, freshness, balanced well by the malts. Smooth, medium body with a bitter finish. It masked the ABV well. I didnít realize it was in the 9% range until I read the description later. Very good beer.

12oz can poured into a tumbler. Cloudy light amber with a decent off white head. Pure piney nose, with some bitter citrus peels and tropical notes. Juicy hop flavors, with enough maltiness, peels and high bitterness. Full bodied, flavorful, chewy, and quite satisfying.

Pours a bright gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter hops both pine and citrus with lots of malt. Taste is really sweet and malty but also bitter and hoppy. Not real impressed far too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
