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.

can - Pours hazy orange with an aroma led by lemon and grapefruit notes. It has a good, sharp bitter tastes with a little citrus and resin. To me those notes are quite mild though. It’s mostly just bitter and somewhat lacking in complexity. It’s still good but could be better, especially given that I love this style of beer.

Det här är en hyfsad öl med en välbalanserad beska och lite blommig smak. Ölen ligger på över nio procent men det känns mer som fem och då menar jag på ett positivt sätt.

Can into Boulevard tulip A- Orangish with generous off-white head. Pretty clear for a beer called Resin. S- Floral and citrus hops, sweet malt. T- Sweet, big hop bitterness, little hop flavor. M- A little thick, a bit undercarbed for my taste. O- Decent beer, nothing special, wouldn’t trade for it again. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 04-17-2012 03:40:23

Can - light orange with an average head. Has a small hint of pine up front, a creamy mouthfeel and super dry.

12 oz. can. Dry, yeasty aroma features resin (appropriately), grapefruit, pine, shortbread cookie, biscuit, and wood scents. Pours a mostly clear, slightly hazy, bright, orangish gold. Moderate amount of slow-rising bubbles. Large amount of cream/taupe-colored, thick, creamy, uneven head. Produces good lacing. Appetizing and very good looking beer. This really is how you want a beer to look. Very dry, floral taste (rose). Hops dominate, as they should in the double IPA style. Alcohol noticeable. Grapefruit, pine, juniper, and tonic water flavors. A little bit sweet and bready. Numbingly dry hops aftertaste. Medium body. Not as lively as I expected or would prefer. Sixpoint Resin is a very good beer, but a little more power in the flavor and especially the aroma could have taken it from very good to great. That said, this is my kind of beer, and I was quite pleased with it.

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Hop resins and honeyed malts lead this cushiony Double IPA to a lengthy finish where coniferous bitterness steals the show.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy head of foam covers the veiled honeyed blond.
-Mouthfeel is beautifully soft making the flavor profile appear smoother than it actually is.
-Hops also contribute lightly citrusy fruitiness.
-This is not a complex Double IPA, but it is highly enjoyable for what it is.

Can.

Bottle. Poured deep gold with an off white head that dissipated fairly quickly, but left some pretty lacing. Aroma is mostly grapefruit with some floral and citrus notes; very pleasing. First impressions of the flavor are malty with caramel and very obvious hop flavor and bitterness, consistent with the style. The bitterness doesn’t really become prevalent until the finish. The beer is light bodied and finishes fairly dry, perhaps a little too dry for such a big beer. I personally like my DIPAs on the malty side to balance out the hops. I know hops are in the spotlight for this style, but for me I prefer it if they accept their place in the spotlight with humility instead of asserting their dominance the whole time. Overall, though, it was pretty good, just a bit too dry for me. The aroma was my favorite part of this beer.

Hazy golden amber with a 1/4" head and bands of lace. Taste begins with caramel malt, but it is quickly overtaken by medium pine hops that last far beyond the finish. In fact, I finished the beer ten minutes ago, and the hops are still lingering. For the hop fan, this is a mainstream selection; for the malt fan, it is a little much. Surprisingly, the high alcohol is not present in the taste or the palate.

Pours light amber with a sticky white head. Sweet grapefruit hop aroma. Resiny as the name would suggest. Sweet flavor. A little too syrupy for a canned beer. I feel like it should be a little smoother.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Great lacing, beautiful golden orange color. Nice blend of hoppiness and the alcohol is hidden very well. Would totally buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
