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.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a hazy light amber color with a thin to medium white head. Aroma is of citrus, floral, yeast, and some booze. Gently floral, soft citrus. Dank and resinous, spicy malt and toast. Touch grainy. Long pithy bitterness on the finish.

Skyview (5345) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Picked up a four pack at Giant Eagle in Lancaster, Ohio. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a decent sized and rocky off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Man, I can pick up the hop scent two feet away from the glass. More aromas of grapefruit, raisin, and some tropical fruit. Taste is full bodied, fruity to the max, with some multi-grain malt and a touch of grapefruit juice. Finish is mildly bitter with more of a citrus and spicy hop aftertaste that slowly disappears. Pushing into the hoppy barley wine territory. I like the Energy Beverage sized can.

Can from Crown Liquors, Indy. Interesting idea to put this in one of those Red Bull-style bullets. Iíd been looking forward to this brew, and confess that I found it an odd and not terribly satisfying big IPA. Fairly cloudy deep orange pour with a nice froth to it, good lacing as well. Nose was a bit "huh?" with its faded fruits, malts, and a fast appearance from bitter hops, like a glove slapped to the face. Mouthfeel was fullish, palate a bit hot. Grass and caramel clashing in the flavors, not so much balanced as opposite corners. It was okay but certainly not especially resinous, piney, or even brightly hoppy at all so much as just heavy and sticky.

From a can. Taste of mildly piney hops. Similar to a DIPA, but has itís own distinction. Quite nice!

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 12oz can from Andersons in Sylvania (I think). Orange pour with a modest white head and sporadic lacing. Aroma is big tropical fruit - pineapple, mango, grapefruit. Tastes are toasty malt, caramel, citrus, herbal, resin, pine. Nice medium palate. Covers the alcohol well - just a little warmth. Good - very drinkable.
