COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This one is right up my alley. Big pine and citrus aroma bursts from the pop top. A very bitter beer to say the least. A bit of sweet malt that is quickly overwhelmed by the hops. Nice looking slightly red amber.

Thin off white head with fair retention and a bit of sticky lace. Lightly hazed, copper/amber hued brew. Piney hop nose, fairly juicy and attractive, little earth and grapefruit. Body is med/full, chewy, low carbonation, resiny, lil sticky on the lips. Lots of juicy hop flavor, pine, grapefruit, dankness with a touch of lightly sweet caramel malts along for the ride. Mouthwatering and juicy. Nice bitter finish, lil fruit. nice. 12oz can from statelineliquors.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 On tap at Good Beer - awesome IIPA, and one of the best things Iíve had from a super brewery! Sixpoint just seems to get better and better and to keep churning out interesting releases. Nice orange-red pour. Sweet, floral, resiny IPA aroma with a floral quality that lingers for a bit. Smooth, sweet, and rich. The flavor is complex, tingley, and well-balanced between serious infusions of tasty hops and heavy loads of fine malts. I expected 6pt to do an excellent big IPA someday, and they have delivered. BUT I had to take a couple of points off after having it from a can. That time it got too darn overwhelmingly bitter for my poor little palate. For some reason I found the draft to be a lot more enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Deep coppery amber in color with a light tan head that is foamy but fades and laces soon after pour. Hoppy aroma. Floral hops are right up front with a nice, slightly bitter flavor that lasts through to the finish. A tad bit earthy, hints of pine, citrus zest, and spice. Amazing for a canned beer. Would definitely have this again.

The aroma of this beer was very hoppy with a hint of sugar and sweetness. Taste was of fresh hops and a very sticky malt. Finish that stuck to the palate and kept the hops very well. Great DIPA.

can poured a dark red amber color with a thin off white head. aroma has citrus, resiny pine, good malted body, and light sweetness. mouth feel is fuller than expected hitting a medium and there is average carbonation. flavor brings on the resin, pine, medium bitterness, citrus rind, gets a bit sticky, and finishes with light heat and lingering resins. did I mention the resin because the name is very fitting.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2012
This beer pours a clear dark amber-orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Sticky small patches of lacing. Aroma of piney hops and malt. Medium to full body with a resiny (obvious?) hops character and notes of toasted malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is piney with a moderatley bitter hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

12oz can served in a snifter. The aroma is wonderful, pine resin aroma sticks to the inside of your nostrils.The beer is a deep amber color with a fluffy off-white head that left a sheet of lacing. Piney taste upfront with enough malt to balance things out before going totally bitter on the finish. The beer is medium bodied with easy drinkability as the 9% abv is nowhere to be found until after the glass is empty.Overall I like it a lot and Iím glad itís a local beer that I can get fresh.

Ok. This is a really delicious brew. Huge citrus and pine hop aroma that makes way into a great earthy hop taste. Medium sweetness and caramel like malt bill balances the high IBU. Very easy to drink. That being said when I opened the four case to find those tiny energy drink style cans I was hugely disappointed. Every other sixpoint offering, even the seasonals, were in pint cans. Even if they jacked the price up a dollar or two to accommodate the price of ingredients I wouldnít have minded. Lets keep it consistent. Either way still another solid offering from sixpoint.
