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.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2012
Can and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a light coppery hue with a lasting frothy head but not much lace. The aroma has big notes of mangoes, grapefruits, pine needles and resiny sap, snappy clove and pepper, brash alcohol, caramel and bready malts, black tea and some dank herbal esters. While the flavor profile is indeed hoppy and very fruity, with a bit of brash alcohol and slightly astringent finish it still shows the dank resiny hops without going completely unbalanced. You can fins just a wee bit of caramel and pale malts out and about along with some hop spice finish. The mouth feel is aggressive and bold but a tad sticky and not has clean as some San Diego styled IPAís, you can not miss the warming booze either. Overall, this is good and would shock anybody thinking beer in a can is for wimps.

12oz can. I had high hopes for this as it was recommended by a fellow IPA fan -- I even checked the date. Unfortunately, I was relatively disappointed. The nose was metallic -- and honestly, PBR has a better nose. A nice somewhat hazy orange color looked promising. The head retention was okay, and the lacing was good.The body was so-so, and the hops were indistinct. Sort of a generic, bitter hoppiness. And at this price point, Iím really not happy.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2012 Can - This looks great, a clear amber with a massive foamy off-white head. Nose is a little sharp, with sticky pine hops and a whiff of rubbing alcohol. Big sweet malt, though thatís mostly hidden by the hops and booze. The taste is...well...sharp. Thereís a review below mine that references a shot of vodka being dropped into this. Yep, thatís about right. Itís big, slick, resinous, and sticky, with sweet bready malt and tons of grassy/pine bitter hops. But the alcohol burn starts midway through the sip and builds until itís a harsh, biting full-on alcohol sting. This lingers through the long finish and makes me sad. Loved Sweet Action, but definitely wouldnít buy this again.

Hazy orange pour, pale white head. Sticky sweet hops dominate the arome. A bit of lemongrass, like a breakfast cereal. Clean dry grassy hops are quite dominant. Malt base is light and reserved. Still sweeter than bitter, despite lightness of the malt. I think thereís a weird void here, where if it were called an IPA it would work, but somehow it doesnít feel like thereís enough of something there for the IIPA title. I donít want to knock a good beer for not being to style, especially when itís just straddling the line between IPA and IIPA, but something is slightly off here. Perhaps itís that the high alcohol strangely is left naked by the clean malt profile. I typically prefer IPAs because theyíre not as sweet, but this is showing that sweetness serves a purpose. The more I drink, the more it becomes clear that thatís what it is: alcohol is too strong here. Itís giving it a harshness and a chemical like quality. Otherwise, this is a great IPA. Tons of orange and hints of apricot up front, but turn into an oily heat in the finish. It overwhelms the hop bitterness too. Iím being more negative than I feel about the beer. Itís still pretty good, and Iíd be happy to drink it again, but thereía a definite flaw.

12 oz slim can from a trade with BlackIPA. Pours clear amber color with off white head. Citrus and pine hop aroma with some toffee. Grapefruit, orange, and lemon flavors with some sweet caramel and a hint of alcohol. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Shawn.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Pouts a near clear deep amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong bitter earthy pine note with a bit of resin and a bread backing. Flavor starts with an earthy pine note with some underlying resin and bread.

Boutip (5365) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
Can: Poured a deep hazy orangey color ale with large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of pine and resin notes with sweet malt base. Taste is a nice mix between some pine and resin hoppy notes with some solid malt backbone with quite a lot of sweetness. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well done though I prefer My IIPA a bit more dry.
