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.

tmoreau (2994) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Tall 12 oz. can poured to a shaker at Lunar Brewing Co., showing a hazed, orange/golden color, cakey, lasting, off white head foam, and impressive cling to the etched-like spray on the inside of the glass. The aroma was rather subdued notes for a DIPA, with floral, citrus as orange, and light sweetness. The flavor contributed medium+, lingering, earthy, resiny, rind-like hop bitterness, only a medium body, and no balancing, malty sweetness to temper the aggressive bitterness, if only a bit. Very pro-hop, and a little watery at times, with a dry and bitter finish. No DIPA heft imo.

AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Guest tap at Haymarket. Pours an unclear yellow orange with a soapy white head. Aroma has sweet caramel, dark fruits, pine and some resin. Taste brings toffee, pine and some earthyness. Sweet and a bit "old" fashioned, yet the tender assures me there was a "recent" Sixpoint takeover. Finishes somewhat short with alcohol. Some sweetness, slightly bitter.

boxofrane (2446) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Can. Pours deep amber with a large tan head, uneven bubbles, and sticky lacing. Aroma is not very pungent on this brew but has some floral notes and some maltiness on the nose. Taste is medium bitter (103 ibu seems to be pretty light on the tongue) and has some sweetness on the finish. The 9.1% is well hidden and the palate is very filling. Solid.

UDBeernut (2187) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Hazy amber hue capped by large foamy off white head. Gobs of lacing. Nose of pine and citrus. Enjoyable blend of malt holding together the citrus and pine. Not over the top bitter. Aight!!!

RamyG4 (323) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Can. Dark, unclear amber with a big off-white head. 5 for appearance in part because of the cool energy-drink like can. Aroma is pine, resin, some floral, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, medium-heavy bitter. Very bitter finish. Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation, syrupy/sticky texture. Very good DIPA.

Linnet (1324) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2012
Ar: oranges, grapefruit, pine, fruit candy, some tropical fruits, but mostly resinous notes of grapefruit and pine, sweet maltbase and a warming finish. Ap: Amber colour, creamy off-white head, lots of lacing. F: thick maltbase and a punch of bitterness upfront. Grapefruit, resin, pine, citric, herbs, no tropical fruits, but a very nice flavour nonetheless, ending in a warming finish. M: fullbodied, soft carbonation and dry. T: Solid DIPA.

pottygok (537) - Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2012
Aroma: Hints of pine, resin and citrus, but faint. Appearance: Cloudy orange with a thin, white head. Taste: Medium bitterness with hints of sourness at the edges. Quite tasty. Palate: Full body, oily texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: Iím not blown away, but itís a very tasty and well developed beer. Iím certainly going to stock some of these in the fridge for a cold day when I need a warm up.

olsvammel (4237) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2012 Bottle through Brill/Systembolaget. A very hoppy beer with pine cone and resin, also some grapefruit. Very boozey, but might work if you want a hop kick.
