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.

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.

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.

Clear pale amber with a light tan head with nice retention, nice lacing... Decent aroma, piney grassy hop with some light citrus... Lively alcoholic sweet fruity almost has notes of like a tart raisin... Hoppiness is subdued by the sweet maltiness... Imperial amber maybe... Full bodied bc of the sweetness... Ehh

Style et résumé: Double IPA américaine à la limite du barley wine.
Comment: Canette de 12oz. merci Patrick.
Description: Double IPA de couleur cuivrée avec une mousse beige durable. Le nez est de caramel, du sucre d’orge couvert d’une marmelade d’agrumes le tout enrobé dans le sirop d’érable. La bouche ressemble au nez avec du caramel et du sirop d’érable. La finale offre une belle amertume.
Note: 7/10

12 oz can from Blue Dog. Pours turbid orange with 1-finger creamy off=white head. Nose is orange marmalade, tangerine, resiny hops, peppery. Tastes like a souped up Bengali Tiger, with more resiny hops and fruity flavors. Gets a tad cloying at the finish.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Cool can and box. Tastes more like a less sticky more resiny and darker big foot. Either way pretty nice here and I bet much nicer fresher... great price point for a 9% beer. UPDATE: had a can with 8 months on it... think it was in the fridge mostly, but i like the little bit of time on this as it really seems more like a barley wine to me.

Can thanks to Bigmmartin. Aroma is grassey/piney hops. Notes of caramel and some citrus stand out. Palate is smooth for the IBU and ABV. Tate is bitter, finishing dry. Pretty damn good.

TheBeerGod (5224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Can. Amber pour with a frothy, creamy tan head. Aroma is hoppy and laden with citrus, pine resins, wet hops and caramel. Taste is big citrus, pine, orange oils, grapefruit juice, sweet malt, caramel, and light spicy hops. Body is medium-full with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more pine, citrus hop resins, wet hops, spicy hops, caramel, sweet malt and alcohol.
