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.

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.

On tap: Whole Foods. Appearance: orangish, amber, mid haze/clear, medium tannish white head. Aroma: some grapefruit citrus with strong strong pine íresiní. Taste: crazy piney hop bitterness (I LOVE IT!!), nice citrus and malt backbone. Mouthfeel: creamy, thickish body, standard carbonation. Overall: I love this beer!!! Huge hophead here and it satisfies all my DIPA needs! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

The name speaks for itself, the taste is dominated by resiny, piney hops, with the malt and just a touch of alcohol underneath. Relatively well balanced. A good DIPA, but not the best. And Iím not sure I like the energy drink cans it comes in.

Draft at ChurchKey. Poured a clear dark amber color, medium sized white head. Aroma was... resin. Yep. But in all seriousness, it was heavy on the pine sap, needle notes. Flavor was medium malts, heavy on the hops - woah so many hops.

12 oz tall boy slim can from Spirits Rt 37. Poured a surprisingly super deep red amber body under an average sized tight foamy light beige head. Aroma was a big burst of grapefruit along with grains and toast followed by a touch of orange marmalade. The palate was fuller and thick with a syrupy feel and strong carbonation. Flavor was far more grainy than I like in my DIPAs with bitterness from lemon and grapefruit rind and a faint hint of vanilla. Meh itís okay but nothing to write home about.

Can shared by a friend. Clear amber/copper pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of amber malt, a bit of sweetness and some grassy hops. Flavor starts with earthy hops, then moves to amber malt before a grassy hop finish.

Can. Pours deep amber with an off white head. Resinous pine, floral hops, and a light sweetness. The flavor has piney hops and sweet toffee malts, with some light floral hoppy notes as well. A well balanced resinous hop blast.

Shared with travlr at ChurchKey. The beer itself is a dark clear amber, with a fluffy head. It looks beautiful. Smell is piny and resinous. Somehow I get the idea that itís exactly what theyíre going for? Awesome. Taste is similar, with some dryish malt character balanced by some zesty hops. Word.
