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.

12oz. Can: Aroma of hops, resin, citrus, and tropical fruit. Poured amber/gold in color with a small to medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Very sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, pine, and resin. Medium body. Oily, slick texture. Average carbonation. Hop, malt, resin finish is lightly sweet and medium bitter. 9.1%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

JStax (3315) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Appearance is a hazy copper with a half-finger width head of creamy white foam. Head retention is acceptable. I get some resinous aromas, but primarily I get a woody, vanilla scent. Bitterness is definitely dry and resinous in the taste. Drying on the back of the tongue. A rush of dank bitterness attacks tongue post-swallow. Long, dry finish. Full, sticky mouthfeel. This beer is so sticky, it’s almost chewy. I do like the can. I like this brewery’s label/can art.

Pours darker than expected.. Nice and grapefruit, sweet with a little peach or apricot. Nice alternative to hopslam ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: Resin as name suggest. Fresh garden green notes with plenty of citric hop . 8-
Appearance: clear with dark amber garnet hue. Large tanned , rocky-creamy top. Ornamental lace.
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: full bodied. Oily bitter feel yet with out most of bold harshness. Very hoppy , rich fruity resin like feel. Alcohol noted only as dry wrap to hop overload. Monstrous but well brewed.

mikesaum (598) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Pours dark orange with a thin white head, aroma is kinda weak for a DIPA,grassy hops and a bit of malt. Taste very grassy as well with some pine and yes resin, bitter yes but it doesn’t seem to be 103 IBUs. Good but a bit offf for the style.

At home. Helsingborg, 7th of March. Big thanks to Steve (fbm115) for sending me this beer. Pours dark orange, almost brownish with a big creamy head. Heavy aromas of pine needles and resin, just as advertised. Some green dry hops beneath it. Hints of a round soft sweetness as well. Full bodied with heavy flavours of reisnous hops, soft touch of syrup. No taste of alcohol. Great beer, great balance. DIPA just as I like it!
