It’s been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and we’re ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isn’t a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going ’round this winter. It isn’t our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. It’s 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 — but rarely do Sixpoint beers adhere to any strict style demands.

Fresh can poured into a duvel tulip. Pours a mostly clear orange amber with a small white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is pine resin, orange, apricot, caramel, some bread, and is on the sweet side. Taste is bitter up front. Strong pine and grapefruit mix with lemon, tangerine, caramel, and maybe bread. Mouthfeel is thicker and sticky. Alcohol is somewhat present. I’ll drink it again but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

Moderate resin hop aroma and a little earthy. Hazy orange color with a large white head. String initial bitterness that fades into the end. Middle become lightly sweet and fades in the finish.

Courtesy of Summer Secret Santa 2012! I’d love to bring this to work, like on a Friday during lunch, just crack it open... The heads think it’s an energy drink. Nope, it’s beer. And I’m leaving early! So, anyway, that aspect of the whole package gets points. Let’s talk about the beer itself: It’s a juicy hop bomb with a caramel-forward malt backbone. The aroma is sweet and doughy more so than hoppy. The body is murky, with the right amount of head and lacing. I dig the flavor most of all. I really enjoyed this -- the package along with the brew itself.

can - Pours hazy orange with an aroma led by lemon and grapefruit notes. It has a good, sharp bitter tastes with a little citrus and resin. To me those notes are quite mild though. It’s mostly just bitter and somewhat lacking in complexity. It’s still good but could be better, especially given that I love this style of beer.

Det här är en hyfsad öl med en välbalanserad beska och lite blommig smak. Ölen ligger på över nio procent men det känns mer som fem och då menar jag på ett positivt sätt.

12 oz. can. Dry, yeasty aroma features resin (appropriately), grapefruit, pine, shortbread cookie, biscuit, and wood scents. Pours a mostly clear, slightly hazy, bright, orangish gold. Moderate amount of slow-rising bubbles. Large amount of cream/taupe-colored, thick, creamy, uneven head. Produces good lacing. Appetizing and very good looking beer. This really is how you want a beer to look. Very dry, floral taste (rose). Hops dominate, as they should in the double IPA style. Alcohol noticeable. Grapefruit, pine, juniper, and tonic water flavors. A little bit sweet and bready. Numbingly dry hops aftertaste. Medium body. Not as lively as I expected or would prefer. Sixpoint Resin is a very good beer, but a little more power in the flavor and especially the aroma could have taken it from very good to great. That said, this is my kind of beer, and I was quite pleased with it.

My Bottom Line :
Hop resins and honeyed malts lead this cushiony Double IPA to a lengthy finish where coniferous bitterness steals the show.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy head of foam covers the veiled honeyed blond.
-Mouthfeel is beautifully soft making the flavor profile appear smoother than it actually is.
-Hops also contribute lightly citrusy fruitiness.
-This is not a complex Double IPA, but it is highly enjoyable for what it is.

Bottle. Poured deep gold with an off white head that dissipated fairly quickly, but left some pretty lacing. Aroma is mostly grapefruit with some floral and citrus notes; very pleasing. First impressions of the flavor are malty with caramel and very obvious hop flavor and bitterness, consistent with the style. The bitterness doesn’t really become prevalent until the finish. The beer is light bodied and finishes fairly dry, perhaps a little too dry for such a big beer. I personally like my DIPAs on the malty side to balance out the hops. I know hops are in the spotlight for this style, but for me I prefer it if they accept their place in the spotlight with humility instead of asserting their dominance the whole time. Overall, though, it was pretty good, just a bit too dry for me. The aroma was my favorite part of this beer.
