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.

Draft at Redlight. Deep golden pour with a white head that laces. Aroma of sticky, dank, and yes, resinous hops with some underlying sweet malts. Sticky sweet hops and caramel malt. Sweet smooth slightly bitter end. Pretty tasty!

2012-11-18. Light hazy dark orange, small off-white head. 3+ Initial fruity hoppy aroma gives way a bit to a more alcoholic second wave, tropical fruit. Flavour is fairly bitter, modest fruity hop character, light malt support, modest alcohol in the finish grows stronger the faster you drink it, and as it warms up. Average plus bodied palate. Really nice hop character, simple but tasty. Just a little too warming overall, which is understandable considering the abv. Can from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo

12oz can, best by March 5, 2013. Served around 45F.

Pours quite hazy orange amber with a three finger white head that leaves tons of clumpy sticky drippy webs and rings of lacing and holds a small cap. Beautiful.

Aroma is some citrus hops, orange, grapefruit also very herbal, resinous and pungent, even a bit funky, some caramel malt as well. Good, but not great strength.

Flavor is orange marmalade, grapefruit, resinous hops, a little touch of some weird funky character, caramel malt, candy, mild sweetness, good bitterness. Some alcohol on the finish as well.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.

Pretty good, very hoppy, quite intense. The slight underlying funkiness keeps it from being great, though.

Poured from a can, hazy copper with a thick white head. Excited by the aroma, not disappointed one bit by the taste from start to finish. Might have found my new favorite IPA (or whatever this is) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the best double IPA in the world. I did a taste test against Stone Ruination IPA and this won by a nose. Just pop the can pour it look at it and drink it OMG!

Can poured into glass. Nice resinous lemony nose. Real sticky looking looking orange gold. Lots of sticky piney citrus and lemons on the taste. ABV hidden dangerously well. Would buy again.

NikkTwist (2659) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Draft at Tattooed Mom. Hazy amber with a swirling white foam. Lots of runny lace. Sweet chewy vanilla caramel. Big hoppy piney citrus pith here but more sweet than bitter. High ABV is hidden. Way too smooth. Feels much more like a sweet well overhopped SPA (i.e. Dogfish 120) than a Belgium Tripel which it resembles in taste but not impact. Not complicated but powerful. Proceed with caution!

Nice resinous aroma some pine some citrus, grapefruit and rind. Really beautiful glowing honey with slightly off white head holding at a finger. Already leaving lacing as it subsides. Taste is bitter, some citrus rind, but mostly just sort of anonymously bitter. Not getting a lot in the way of intricacies. Meh.

Slender 12 oz can purchased as a Single at Pace-Hi Beer and Wine Shop in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is resin bitterness, a hint of black licorice, and cracker malt behind that. The taste is pine juniper resin, turning to a weird honey sweet alcohol. Sweetness cloys a fair bit, detracting from the pleasant resin bitterness. The palate is medium bodied, low carbonation level, and finishing with the honey sweet booze. There were parts of this I liked, but the booze and sweet took away some enjoyment.

Grapefruit and pineapple, very nice. Color is clear, nothing special. Some lacing. Palate is well balanced, a bit dry, booze is very well hidden. A good example of the style.
