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.

Can from Dutchís. This is an incredible canned offering. So good that it makes me feel guilty drinking it straight from the can and Iíve got no serious qualms with drinking Modus Hoperandi straight from the can. This pours a very cloudy orange with a picture perfect white head. The aroma is amazing. Resin is the most appropriate name for this one. Itís like pine sap and honey comb. A little citrus for good measure. Flavor is strikingly clear and sharp. There is wonderful, dank herb and evergreen all over the flavor. The finish is sticky in the best possible way. Really, really delicious!

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Can thanks to GraniteSkunk! Dirty orange pour, little carbonation, some lacing and a sweet hot orange syrupy hops aroma. Flavor is creamy oranges, bitter pine and finished mellow with a little alcohol presence. Very good, not super abrasive and over the top, but well balanced at 9%.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2012
Can at home. God love brewers who put IIPAs in cans! Pours hazy green-hued, copper/orange. 1-finger highly persistent cream coloured head, great lacing. Nose is spicy pine, juicy grapefruit, very woodsy. Flavours of orange, marmalade, quite bitter, very soapy, tea-like. Not famously complex, but bright, fresh, and grassy. A bit cheesy in the finish.

BeerGuyTWMore (128) - Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours hazy strawberry blonde, with thick stick pearl head, that doesn't simply lace the glass, but coats. Aroma is globs of hops: grapefruit and flowery. Something off in the flavor. Citrus hop bitterness, malt backbone, herbal/metallic pungency-perhaps just the IBUs attacking my tongue either way it's offensive, ruining an otherwise attractive brew: I love the viscosity (and the tall slim can). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Poured into a snifter. Love the "mini-tallboy" can thing. 3.5 A: Lightly hazed bright orange color. Two fingers of off-white, frothy/foamy head. Retention is poor for the first inch, then great for the second. Moderate amount of lacing is left. 4.5 S: Very nice nose on this. Aggressive tropical fruits featuring mango and papaya. Underneath that there is pineapple and a touch of orange. Clean maltiness overall with complementary caramel and a light neutral malt sweetness. 4.0 T: Unlike a lot of DIPAs that smell of a cornucopia of tropical fruits, this one manages to also keep the intensity of the tropical fruits in the taste. Mango and papaya are rocking it again with the others close behind. Mild to moderately breadiness. Moderate bitterness. Caramel maltiness. Great balance. 3.5 M: Medium body. Carbonation is at the upper end for the style, but still reasonable. Mildly creamy and could use some more. 4.0 D: Solid DIPA. Great taste and a stellar nose.

dresden (1350) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 25, 2012
Hazy orange with a foamy head that sticks around. Nice aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is definitely those sticky resinous hops but they are pretty floral and citrusy. Itís a really nice beer but the booze is pretty obvious. I like it!

Red bull can...poured to glass. Golden orangish in color with a pillowy white head. A good amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma was hints of hops and malts, but thats about it. Smell translates to taste. I was expecting more. For a DIIPA you want that long sweet hop burst on the palate and it was not there. As others have said, the alcohol is hidden well. Potential to be a good beer, just needs a little more.

pras (570) - Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Light copper color with little lacing. Beer starts out a bit sweet and citrusy, with lots of hop bitterness at the end. This beer is totally in balance. 9.1 alcohol is pretty well hidden.
