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.

Chalice from growler filled at Whole Foods. A: lots of floral, citrus notes. App: very slightly hazy, golden color. Small, quickly dispersing, frothy head. T: lots of floral up front- rise, lilac, violets. Citrus on the back. Medium lingering aftertaste of pine. P: hardly any bubbles, very smooth going down.

zizzybalubba (1380) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2012
12 oz. can from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Hazy orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, wet grass, and pine needles. Really nice balanced flavor of grapefruit, mango, and pine. This is a very easy drinking DIPA. I liked it.

brigg (499) - Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2012
(12oz can) Slightly hazy orange-amber body with a big, foamy off-white head. As head recedes, rocky peaks and furrows appear, and thick gobs of lace on the glass. Aroma has some sweet malt, bubblegum notes, pine hops, grass and a bit of citrus, but overall nothing really stands out above the rest. Nice full body; a little soft carbonation, and a texture that starts out creamy and ends up oily. Flavor has a nice mix of hops and malt. Mild sweetness and some fruit notes; orange, a hint of grapefruit, a lot of floral notes, too. Bitter really jumps up in the finish and aftertaste; resin. Some alcohol is noticeable and warming.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
Can. Pours a dark amber color with a off white head. Aroma is super piney, lots of resin, tea and herbal like aromas, woodsy notes, citrus and some sweet and caramel malt. Flavor follows the nose and is super bitter, I get lots of woodsy notes, resin, pine, herbal tea like notes, citrus, and the sweet and caramel malt. The body is medium with a lightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall a really good intense East Coast IPA.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft from The Beer Store in Louisville. Pours bright, deep orange/amber with small white head. Nose shows a huge amount of bubblegum on top of (duh) resin and orange zest. Big and sweet and resiny. Wish I had a sixer of this. Yum.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a hazy apricot color with a large soapy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was intense pine and resin that overwhelmed whatever else may have been trying to poke through. The flavor was strong pine and resin with light floral hops and a sweet caramel presence. Medium length finish and fairly full bodied. The alcohol was well hidden. Well done.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
Fresh resiny hop aroma with a lovely bright pine/woodland character. A little bit peppery with a nice sort of light malt character. A touch of ethanol that adds some interest for me. Lingering prickly finish. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Can. Pours a light amber with a touch of haze under a thin to medium sized white head. Gently floral, soft citrus. Dank and resinous, spicy malt and toast. Touch grainy. Long pithy bitterness on the finish.

Steeeve (326) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pale gold pour with a thin white head that leaves sheets of lacing. Very hoppy aroma. Layers of pine and floral hops dangle over a dry, pils-like base. Flavor is very bitter. Sticky hop resin coats your mouth. Piney and earthy hop flavor. Some of the sweet malt does peek through, but not as much as you might expect for a 9.1% ABV beer. Unrestrained hop flavor that tastes every bit of its 100+ IBUs. Very good, but kinda loses its luster when followed by a fresh Double Trouble. Could use more balance and better aroma.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
Nifty, tall, thin 12 oz can via Lubiere, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep, rich copper with a small-ish off-white head. Aroma: Quite malty, rich, sweet, thick, chewy, some nice resinous/kinda piney hops, dusty/musty, mashy, fruity and boozy, so thick and rich, like good run-soaked fruit cake, not the hop bomb I expected. Palate: Medium+ body, soft, restrained effervescence. Flav.: Quite malty, caramel/toffee, fruity, burnt sugar, fruitiness, orange peel, grapefruit notes, some resin and pine, boozy, a little molasses/dark rum, citrus, dusty/musty, interesting enough; basically dry with good bitterness and a long, dusty, oily finish.

For me, not as enjoyable as Bengali Tiger. Still pretty good.
