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.

Brickyard Gastropub in New York, NY. Draft. Sweet, hoppy aroma. Slightly off-white creamy head with so-so lacing. Near-perfect slightly-cloudy golden color. Soft mouth-feel. Nicely hoppy and bitter, and long-lasting on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can, stamp on the bottom says best before 26 November 2012. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head that fizzled away quickly. Thereís a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like citrusy hops (tropical fruit, grapefruit), pine hops, and some caramel malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but thereís some earthy/floral hops noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it has moderate carbonation and itís a bit creamy. Iíd like to try this fresher in the future. Itís a solid brew, but I prefer other Double/Imperial IPAís compared to this one. With that being said, this is still definitely worth trying.

Bottle, pours hazy orange with medium head. Aroma is some citrus, pine, wood, some tropical fruits. Taste is like aroma with lots of hops and some mild malt background. Very pleasant, not that complex or mindblowing. Nice!

12oz can. Rating #232. Bright orange, clear with a white head. Nice aroma, pine and resin, very floral and fragrant. Above average bitterness, more pine and a big aftertaste. (2397)

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2012
12oz slimboy can courtesy of Tyler. Hazy orange-tan with a fluffy off-white head. Rather mild and smooth for a IIPA, some toasty malt, mild tropical hop tones. A tad soapy and insipid, with a generally unpleasant dry, acrid aftertaste. Some mellow alcohol tinged honey tones. Wow, this is really unimpressive, tinny, metallic. Lacks much depth. I am not impressed with most Sixpoint beers, and this one is the biggest disappointment yet.

on draft at fest of ales. big hoppy nose of citrus and yet grassy...very grassy indeed and oh so sweet smelling...this is a very good aroma. the flavor is pretty much the same huge hoppy flavor of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, maybe some mango...this is a great beer for any hophead...plenty of lacing and huge white head that was there for awhile. definte drinkable and can drink alot more of this.

Aroma of toffee/nougat and moderate citrus. Appearance is caramel gold with bone head. Flavor of malts up front, but with an uneven, alcohol/hop finish. Palate is lightly bubbly. Kinda off and unpleasant.

Awesome impy IPA!! Resin pours an orange color with a big and fluffy white head. The head leaves some great lacing around the glass. The nose is full of hops, citrus, earth and a bit of lightly toasted bread. The flavors are incredibly well-balanced and delicious. Thereís plenty of hops in this brew, with a dry and spicy mouthfeel and lots of citrus. The beer finishes spicy, dry and very hoppy. All-around a great IIPA!!
