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.

JulienHuxley (3538) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2012
Can. Copper orange with decent head. Aroma is a nice mix between dank (weed, onion, resin) and fruits (tangerine, pinneaples). More malt than your standard word-class DIPA. Very bitter, grassy and honey malts. The alcohol presence is a little overwhelming. A very decent DIPA which would have benefit from a lower profile.

BigBeer45 (1282) - Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Can, this ale had a burnt orange (copper) pour and made an initial two to three finger faint off-white, creamy head of bubbles that had a little orange tint to them, the glass had gentle effervescence flowing in the center, it left some small spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, there were hops that had aromas of nice floral, citrus and hints of sweet nectar, toasted malt, faint bread malt, some orange and lemon pith citrus, orange fruit and sweetness along with malt sweetness, the flavors were citrus and resin hops with toasted malt, bread, and orange fruit, malt sweetness, a little light for a IPA2, the mouth feel was medium or a little more, there was some creaminess on the tongue, I thought it was a little light on the palate for a IPA2 but it was nice on the tongue, no alcohol flavor but there was a touch of alcohol heat that went well with the hop bitterness, this drink had a nice hoppy nose, good IPA2.

maxwelldeux (3865) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Can. Pours an amber color with a fairly thick white head. Moderately hoppy in the nose, thought itís a tad hoppier in the taste. Good brew, but not my fave in the style.

bytemesis (3681) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Can - thanks BlackIPA! Pours hazy amber with a small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is strong caramel, toffee, roasted malts together with pine resin and some citrus. Flavor is ditto, medium sweet medium bitter with some light phenols in the finish. Too much on the malty side for my taste; more like an extra bitter American Strong Ale.

AirForceHops (3640) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2012
12 oz. can. Real nice appearance. Hazy golden with yellow highlights around the edges. Plenty of retention. Aroma is quite resinous, with some citrus and bready malt. Taste is an absolute crazy amount of piney hop bitterness. I donít taste malt. I donít taste citrus. All resin. This one is medium-full bodied, with a thick, sticky/resinous mouthfeel, and sharp prickly carbonation. Well, it certainly delivers what it advertises. But it really is a bit overwhelming for me. I taste every bit of the 103 IBU. Try it but be ready for a bitterness assault.

Resin is an intense IPA with an amazing aroma and lingering hopping taste. This is a highly recommended happy beer.

SPDickerman (1001) - Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Pours orange with a large off-white head. Smells hoppy, piny, resinous. Taste is bitter and hints of pine. Medium-to-full bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Sixpoint Resin finishes with a touch of bitterness.

Can pours bright orange with a thin white head. Aroma is huge green, dank, wet pine hops. Flavor is pale grains and crackers with a huge dry pine and resinous grassy hop finish. Damn near perfect.
