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.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Iím not sure what went wrong with this one, and Iíll give it another shot, cause I really enjoy Sixpoint as a brewery and they make some decent beers. Pours a really nice golden amber with no head whatsoever. Flavor is skunky hops, funky and rich with crisp bitterness and citrus. Didnít smell amazing compared to some of their other offerings. Flavor is much much better though. Very crisp and clean with nice, heavy citrus. Medium body. 02192013 On a second try, this came out much better. From draft, pours to snifter a nice deep golden with a faint head that dissipates. Nose is super resinous, lotsa pine and grassy notes with good citrus and grapefruit. Flavors follow through nicely with a bold pine and green taste. Nice lighter body and definitely enjoyable this time.

Amber in color with a nice off-white head. Aroma is of pine, tree sap, must, and grapefruit. Taste is of caramel, grass, resin, pine, and toffee.

Trade from Phatdog1 - Thanks!Bonus appearance point for the snazzy can. Pours hazy copper, with a sizey white head. Smells very piney, with hints of caramel. Taste is very hop forward, as is to be expected. Lots of pine, some subtle peppery notes, and sweet caramel. Very tasty...

Can pour...cool little skinny can! Hazy, golden; short, pillowy, ivory head. Some fairly pungent (good way), aromas of bubblegum, unripe bananna, lemon and maybe a bit of tangerine. Flavors are hoppy strong, but well balanced in bitterness. Some faint sweet malt on the entry, but all IPA on the way down. Maybe a tad sticky on the palate, but refreshing overall. A very impressive IPA. Not overwhelming, just a good, solid entry into this style. Would go great with a basket of wings.....mmmmm!

Crystal clear golden copper with a small lasting head. The aroma is sweet, toasted malt and lots of resinous, spicy, citrusy hops. The hops remind me of Summit, with strong toasted finish of Marris Otter or maybe dark munich malt. Tastes darker and toastier than it looks in any case. Very bitter and very good. Worth picking up.

Great hoppy aroma and attractive golden brown appearance with a taste that themselves more towards alcohol than hops and a decent lingering mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thank god... itís great to see an unfiltered double IPA from time to time. It has a cloudy, dark/golden orange color and a foamy, billowy white head. It has an industrial/restaurant cleaner nose thatís soapy and has a slight, sweet caramel aroma with some really stinky hops. It reminds me of stinky cheese... honest! The mouth feel is very soft and malty with a slight bready flavor , light sweetness, and a bold, soft hop flavor that finishes much more bitter than is detectable in the flavor. For as bitter as this is, itís really soft-palated. Iím surprised. I, personally prefer my double IPAs to be thinner, though. This is too creamy. Overall, Iím not that impressed. It reminds me of an insecticide.

Slim can, 12 0Z: Orange-amber with a frothy, light tan head. Scent is piney hops...pine...needles..malt. Taste is a softly increasing floral hop bitter over light citrus. Slightly creamy, sweet malt. Quite good...actually very smooth and balanced given itís IBU/ABV numbers.

Can picked up at Consumers Beverages in Niagara Falls New York. Pours a little cloudy copper colour with a pure white head and piles of lace. Smells quite obviously of sweet piney hops. Carmalized malt as well. Tastes bitter, but not like I thought it would. Pine hops that stays with you but not like the typical high IBU beers. Itís actually rarely well balanced, and not like eating hops who.e.
