COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and we’re ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isn’t a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going ’round this winter. It isn’t our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. It’s 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 — but rarely do Sixpoint beers adhere to any strict style demands.

fiulijn (15410) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2012
Can at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Norra Vallgatan
Cloudy light amber - orange color. Malt and caramel aroma, light puke, no hop. The malt and caramel flavor is quite good; the hop provides some resiny and citrusy character (bitter oranges); moderate residual sweetness. Long and strong final; some fruits in the final too, appreciated.
Solid IIPA, without shining.

rumproasts (3498) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2012
amber with two finger head. well named. this is slightly thick with huge hops. i’d prefer more citrus, but that’s a minor quibble. this is a great ipa.

Brickyard Gastropub in New York, NY. Draft. Sweet, hoppy aroma. Slightly off-white creamy head with so-so lacing. Near-perfect slightly-cloudy golden color. Soft mouth-feel. Nicely hoppy and bitter, and long-lasting on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can, stamp on the bottom says best before 26 November 2012. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. There’s a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (tropical fruit, grapefruit), pine hops, and some caramel malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s some earthy/floral hops noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it has moderate carbonation and it’s a bit creamy. I’d like to try this fresher in the future. It’s a solid brew, but I prefer other Double/Imperial IPA’s compared to this one. With that being said, this is still definitely worth trying.

SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle, pours hazy orange with medium head. Aroma is some citrus, pine, wood, some tropical fruits. Taste is like aroma with lots of hops and some mild malt background. Very pleasant, not that complex or mindblowing. Nice!

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 8, 2012
12oz can. Rating #232. Bright orange, clear with a white head. Nice aroma, pine and resin, very floral and fragrant. Above average bitterness, more pine and a big aftertaste. (2397)

nuplastikk (4807) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2012
12oz slimboy can courtesy of Tyler. Hazy orange-tan with a fluffy off-white head. Rather mild and smooth for a IIPA, some toasty malt, mild tropical hop tones. A tad soapy and insipid, with a generally unpleasant dry, acrid aftertaste. Some mellow alcohol tinged honey tones. Wow, this is really unimpressive, tinny, metallic. Lacks much depth. I am not impressed with most Sixpoint beers, and this one is the biggest disappointment yet.
