3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy aroma with a hint of lemon. Strong hops but still well balanced. Cloudy pour with very little head. Has a little bite from the high ABU. Very refreshing D IPA.

Not as nice as their normal IPA - the alcohol and sweetness outdid themselves. Still respectable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Hazy deep amber body. Frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of resin, pine, mint, citrus, caramel. Hint of toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture that turns sticky, lively carbonation. Taste of sticky caramel coated with resinous hops. Long, lingering bitterness combined with hot, liquor-like alcohol. Peppery with a hint of citrus, especially lemon. Lots going on here, but you have to dig deep to get to it because of this is a resin hop bomb.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sixpoint Resin is a clear, golden ale covered in a soft, thick, yellowed foam that leaves intricate lacing on the glass. It has a strong, fresh aroma of grapefruit and lumber. It smells almost a touch sour-- "nose tart". Itís very full and soft in the mouth and it leaves the tongue a little singed. Itís bursting with fresh hop flavor and quite bitter. Grapefruit peel bitterness becomes wooden and, finally, resiny at the finish and throughout the aftertaste, where it picks up some juniper and black pepper. The whole affair is pretty dry. I really love a beer like this. Itís strong and heavy enough to support all those hops and the malt never creates any conflict.
