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.

rougeau13 (2192) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Clear golden-amber with a large, frothy, off-white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of citrus, flowers, bread, grass, and caramel. The taste is malty and quite bitter with a hint of metal. Medium bodied, sticky, very dry.

Lubiere (11160) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2012
A hazed dark amber DIPA with a thick lacing dark mocha head. In aroma, superb pungent hops, resinous and catty, with burned caramel malt, meaty notes, fragrant and musky. In mouth, an nice biscuit treacle malt with pungent resinous hops, lingering herbal bitterness, grapefruit, classic DIPA, without being overpowering. 12 on can from Potsdam IGA.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
12oz. Can. One caveat on this rating is that I donít know how old the beer was. Pours a dark honey color with a thin white foam. Not much going on in the aroma for a supposed hop bomb, some biscuit, pine and grass notes. Flavor is big on hops with lots of pine resin and a big bitter bite. This one is also very malty which keeps the bitterness in check. Some notes of biscuit and fresh baked bread. Palate is ridiculously syrupy and feels like someone has smeared honey on your teeth. Just too much for my taste. Finishes with some lingering bitterness. Would like to compare this with one that I know for sure is fresh since my guess is that this one was a bit past its prime.

KyotoLefty (7556) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2012
Draught at Farm House Tap and Grill. Glowing orange-amber with a fine head. Soft citrus and tropical fruit nose, plus crackery malts. Big tropical fruit flavor, a bit of ester, pine, hay, alcohol and fruit salad. Good.

LinusStick (3002) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2012
A poor example of an IIPA. Aroma was average. Heavy grass, wet fresh cut lawn and not much else. Pour was a nice enough clear medium gold with no bubbles and a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was very weak (which, if anything, hides the alcohol perfectly). Heavy on the pine, grass and biscuit flavors with a sticky semi-bitter aftertaste. Not very full flavored and would be better off classified as an IPA. Light carbonation. Not terrible, but not very flavorful.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Hazy orange with little carbonation with piney hops, malts, and toffee. Very smooth and easy to drink with a great taste

Bottle sample at a tasting at DSGís place. Thanks DSG. Orange with a small head, refreshing aroma of tropical fruits, marmalade, flavor is bitter and dry with low sweetness, grapefruit bitterness, lemon and lemon skin, medium bodied

Wow. The first can of Resin I ever cracked open, I could not believe. It smelled like, as a homebrewer, opening a large bag of hops. It is delicious, has the right amount of malt for the bitterness, the can preserves the hop aroma so well, but it is just too sticky. I can feel it rotting my teeth.

stinky ass beer, in a good way. Tastes like you are licking a hop, really fantastic stuff that leaves a nice resin-y residue in your mouth which is exaclty what it is named for. boom, pretty crazy good beer.
