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.

AndyReynolds (918) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2012
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.

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.

(Une canette de Marheb) Un liquide qui présente une robe à la limite ambrée. Une tête mousseuse qui se pose avec élégance. Un nez qui partage ses aspirations caramélisées avec des houblons résineux et floraux. Rien d’étonnant! Des saveurs de caramel et de toffee. Une touche de sirop d’érable. Des houblons bien vivants. De la résine qui n’est jamais trop expressive. Des fleurs légèrement piquantes. Quelque chose qui est intéressant mais pas renversant. Une bouche qui présente un corps moyen avec un pétillement modéré et une texture huileuse. Une finale qui présente les meilleurs moments des houblons et des malts. Une proposition qui se dirige tout droit vers le vin d’orge.

pours from can with small head and a slightly cloudy pale orange color. typical hops in the nose but not as potent as i was expecting also some alcohol. taste is pleasant strong hop flavors of grapefruit and piney resin coming through. quite bitter... ha ha totally in a good way. very good brew and I’ve come to expect nothing less from this brewery.

HoppyAlesToYou (157) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Notes of caramel, resin, spruce, and flowers in the aroma. The head is tan and laces beautifully over the amber ale. Taste is initially sweet, but quickly snaps to bitterness. Palate is creamy and sticky, appropriately named.

Nephilium (1418) - Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2012
This begins with a deep and dank aroma of hops. Pours a hazy orange, with a dusting of white head. This is a hop bomb, and a delicious one. There’s citrus, pine, and sticky hops all barely being supported by a caramel malt backbone. There’s a slick mouthfeel, with no noticeable carbonation. The alcohol is really well hidden, and there’s a delicious, long bitter finish. This a winner of a beer.

Wow ! Pours a deep buckwheat honey color with a eggshell colored big head. You can almost see the resin settle through the head into the glass. Great nose that reeks of toffee, pine sap and a hint of grapefruit. The flavor is packed with a hoppy resin go figure... more hop flavor and less biting bitterness that you find in a lot of big hopped beers. There is a hint of sweet toffee but its still a refreshing beer despite it being 9% abv... Id say this is in the top ten heavily hopped beers Ive ever tasted. Mmmmm
