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.

First, I canít beleive its a 12 oz can, looks so small. Very nice cold presentation. Soft head. Aroma of clean rubbery hops. After I recover from the first taste I feel like a big bitter innertube is peeling out across my tongue; 454 chevy hipo all the way to the floor. . Did somebody change this out with the pine scented dishwashing liquid? Viscous thicker mouth coating experience. Each slug is terribly painful to a lager lover and its also terribly totoe on style, wew. My taste bud ís er ruined for the night.

Sampled at EBF. I found this one to be quite good, considering it came directly from a can (which should come as no surprise because cans rock). Good hoppy aroma with tad bit of grapefruit in there as well. Delicious.

Can sample at a tasting at DSGís place. Thanks DSG. Pours murky amber with white film. Smells of grapefruit and lychee, tastes bitter and fruity. Light body, sleek texture, balanced.

DSG (5803) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 3, 2012
Can shared at a tasting at home. Hazy deep golden with an off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with pine needles, some flowers, light fruitiness and a bit of malt. Flavor has some malty sweetness, a bit chewy, and quite a lot of piney hops bitterness and a lingering finish. Medium-bodied, a bit oily. Pleasant and very easy-drinking for a 9.1% DIPA.

amber with loose white head, hangs around and laces more than a 9+ abv brew typically does. lots of ganja like herbalness in aroma which is both fruity and grassy. Must be some Simcoe in here too. The malt underpinnings are there but barely, it is juicy but not sweet. Nice long dry biter finish. Best sixpoint offering I have had.

I got a glass of this for $5.50 at Conway and OíReillyís in Janesville, WI in spring 2012. Pours a cloudy copper orange color with a creamy white head. Slightly bitter scent with a nice blend of malts. Crisp and dry flavor from a lot of hops. Some bitter citrus hints with a malty finish. Quite a nice mellow texture.

12oz can, pours golden color semi clear color with large white head. Nose is pine resin of course, oranges. Very good fruit flavors from the start, light body close to the medium body side, good level of carbonation. Slight bitterness on the finish that lingers for a while. Fairly balanced with a sweet note of caramel. Great IPA.

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. Iíll drink it again but wouldnít go out of my way to find it.
