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.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is pretty hops with pine, citrus, orange and caramel. Taste is hoppy with pine, citrus and caramel. Finishes up with moderate bitterness.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours extremely hazy red orange color with a dense 2-3 finger khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some nice soapy lacing on the glass. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, pine, floral, caramel, biscuit, grass, and herbal spiciness. Nice aromas with good balance; but are pretty faint for being a DIPA. Taste of big grapefruit, orange, caramel, biscuit, herbal, floral, pine, grass, and earthy spiciness. Fair amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, pine, caramel, bread, herbal, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very malt forward in flavor profile despite being 103 IBU; but still has some good balance. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a creamy, sticky, and slick mouthfeel. Very smooth to sip on for 9.1%; with only a slight alcohol warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA. Good malt flavor balance with bitterness makes this very smooth to sip on without being overwhelming. Quite enjoyable stuff.

crazyvin (1943) - New York, USA - JUN 1, 2012
From a can. A nice amber body with a white head that had good retention and great lace. Aroma was of resinous hops, seriously it was. A strong pine note, some floral and a slightly dirty quality, not in a bad sense. There was a nice caramel malt base to it. Flavor had a nice caramel malt kick to it, just enough to let me know it was there the rest was hops. Nice pine hops mostly and decent floral hops. Very dry on the finish. A nice warming presence from the alcohol, other then that it was well hidden. Oh yeah itís 9.1%

574deadzone (1042) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2012
On tap. Pours golden orange with a thick creamy two-finger head that leaves substantial lacing. Nose involves pine sap, some mango, and quite a bit of pineapple. Taste is very bitter but also quite sweet. Palate is thick and creamy with a punctuated bitterness all over. Quite a heavy beer to my surprise: the thick palate dominates this brew. That and the extensively lengthy bitter finish. Decent brew, just kinda domineering.

NachlamSie (2769) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Can from Dutchís. This is an incredible canned offering. So good that it makes me feel guilty drinking it straight from the can and Iíve got no serious qualms with drinking Modus Hoperandi straight from the can. This pours a very cloudy orange with a picture perfect white head. The aroma is amazing. Resin is the most appropriate name for this one. Itís like pine sap and honey comb. A little citrus for good measure. Flavor is strikingly clear and sharp. There is wonderful, dank herb and evergreen all over the flavor. The finish is sticky in the best possible way. Really, really delicious!

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Can thanks to GraniteSkunk! Dirty orange pour, little carbonation, some lacing and a sweet hot orange syrupy hops aroma. Flavor is creamy oranges, bitter pine and finished mellow with a little alcohol presence. Very good, not super abrasive and over the top, but well balanced at 9%.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2012
Can at home. God love brewers who put IIPAs in cans! Pours hazy green-hued, copper/orange. 1-finger highly persistent cream coloured head, great lacing. Nose is spicy pine, juicy grapefruit, very woodsy. Flavours of orange, marmalade, quite bitter, very soapy, tea-like. Not famously complex, but bright, fresh, and grassy. A bit cheesy in the finish.

Pours hazy strawberry blonde, with thick stick pearl head, that doesn't simply lace the glass, but coats. Aroma is globs of hops: grapefruit and flowery. Something off in the flavor. Citrus hop bitterness, malt backbone, herbal/metallic pungency-perhaps just the IBUs attacking my tongue either way it's offensive, ruining an otherwise attractive brew: I love the viscosity (and the tall slim can). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
