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.

Juicy Eastcoast DIPA. Wonderful appearance, aroma, and flavor. A once break from the normal Westcoast consistency.

Can gifted by drabmuh. Tick! Thanks Matt. The beer is transparent and copper / amber colored with over an inch of thick, tan head. Excellent retention and copious lacing on the glass. The aroma does indeed offer strong notes of resin, fresh hops, pine. Nice. A dance of pine, fresh hops, and malty backbone. Pretty well balanced, with the 9.1% abv masked well. Lingering pine and bitter hops in the finish. The beer coats the palate, but still goes down easily. Overall, a solid beer that I would certainly have again.

milewide (1580) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Some floral hop aroma, and lingering hop bitterness. Medium amber body, with modest head. Alcohol was especially noticeable in aftertaste. Slim, 12 oz. can was different. Good, but not great DIPA.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Can. Light to moderate roasted grain for the malt, citrus peel and dried grass for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with cardboard and dried fruit in the background. Head is average size, creamy, white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, medium amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily, with a soft to lively carbonation. A little short on some of the common DIPA characteristics, but this is still a great beer.

12oz Skim Can. Wow! This is one tasty beer! Full of nice fruity flavors like Grapfruit and oranges. Big hop slap in the face with a golden bitter finish. Fantastic!

12 oz can thanks to TheBeerSommelier. pours a deep orange with a big 2+ finger off white head - falls to a 1/4" throughout. sweet nose with a big citrus/pine hop aroma. med to thick body with a clean citrus bitterness with some floral notes, dark candy, sweet fruits and caramel malts. sticky finish which coats your mouth in thick bitter goodness. this beer is badass!

Cloudy mostly red (veiwed through sunlight) double IPA. Strong taste reminiscent of grapefruit and lemon. Hop bitterness on the tongue. Finish is dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Can. Cool packaging. Nice seductive pour ... pure amber, with a bright orange backdrop. The initially big airy head recedes relatively quickly, but displays nice retention on the glass. The beer drinks not unlike many anonymous American pales, not at all like an IIPA ... thereís nary a hint of 9% ABV!? Well, maybe thereís a little kick in the background, but this could seriously sneak up on you, for sure! Sneakingly disguised as a nice, well flavored APA. (#4623, 6/24/2012)

jsmerig (1290) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours golden orange with a white frothy head. Aroma of gritty pungent hops. Taste is hoppy right from the start. I expected it to be very unbalanced towards hops, but it actually is incredibly balanced. The beer finishes on nice orange citrus notes. Mouthfeel Is smooth and finishes dry.

Slim can, Golden color. Full head that dissipated some. Gigantic citrus/floral hop aroma. I thought this was canned hop flowers at first the aroma was so potent. Heavy bitter. Slight sticky texture. Grapefruit hop flavors. Resin is a good name.
