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.

UDBeernut (2170) - 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 (1313) - 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 (530) - 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 (4121) - ÷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.

dougefreezy (45) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2012
Real piney and bitter, very good overall. ABV is just right. This would be the perfect beer for the cooler on your ATV or snowmobile in upstate NY! A real quick tasty buzz!

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2012
Canned. Poured slightly hazy medium peach with a tall, creamy, sticky beige head.. looked great! The aroma picked up pine resin, grass, and grapefruit zest over sweet caramel.. not super complex, but very fresh. The flavor found similar, and very bitter hoppage throughout, lingering for a long time on the peppery finish.. the high bitterness masked the character of the malt base for the most part.. alcohol amplified the bitterness in the end. Medium-bodied and sharp on the palate with bitterness and boozage.. OK flow.. this was good, but not great.

portableparty (2067) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2012
Can from RamyG4. Pours hazy dark amber copper with a foamy soapy off white head that fades to a wispy film and soapy collar. Aroma is big resinous hops that smell of pine spruce and somewhat herbal and medicinal. Taste is bitter resinous piny hops with a sweetness and caramel malt and finishes rather biting. Palate is sticky and drying.
