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.

Floral hops are the focus here. Pure hop juice! No malt to be found and thatís ok! Tongue-numbing hop level so itís not for every palate, consider yourself warned. For me it worked quite well and I picture myself picking this up all the time. Iím pretty ecstatic right now haha!

THOUGHTS: Wowza. Now this was a hoppy beer. It was almost as intense as trying to eat a hop pellet, but without the unbearable bitterness. It was definitely bitter, but it was well balance and the intense hop flavors also outweighed the hop bitterness. Another good name for this could have been hop concentrate. Resinous hops are usually my least favorite flavor of hop, but here it really worked. This beer is somewhat addictive. I could see buying it as a special treat for the rest of my life. Concealed alcohol content fairly well. TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear, dark, reddish amber with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished but left excellent lacing. The aroma contained moderate to heavy caramel and burnt sugar; heavy resinous hops and citrus rind hops; less pine hops; honey; brown sugar; and maple syrup. The initial flavor was heavily sweet and moderate to heavily bitter; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel, brown sugar, juicy pine and resin hops, burnt caramel, some grapefruit hops, grapefruit rind and maple syrup. The medium to full body was oily and a bit syrupy with somewhat soft carbonation and a slightly alcoholic and light to moderately astringent finish.

This has become one of my staple high gravity beers. Just a great balance of hops and malt, so smooth. Earthy, grassy, bitter, with just the right amount of sweetness.

355mL bottle, sent from CooperEllis (thanks John), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite resinous, with loads of candied sugar and butterscotch. Flavour is very resinous hop-heavy, orange rind, candied sugar, and caramel malt, though quite dry. Dry orange rind and a pleasant resinous hop astringency linger. Very solid IIPA.

Pailhead (5557) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Can: The aroma consists of heavy citrus with lots of orange and apricot along with some sweet fruit, alcohol, pine, and lighter grapefruit. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze and a small off-white orange tinged head that quickly fades to a thin film. Thereís some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sweet citrus, tropical fruits, and a hint of caramel. The finish has grapefruit, pine, and a touch of lemon. Itís medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, its very tasty and drinkable...and it goes down way to easy for 9.1%.
