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.

Hammy78 (790) - Dundas, Ontario, - JAN 5, 2013
Can picked up at Consumers Beverages in Niagara Falls New York. Pours a little cloudy copper colour with a pure white head and piles of lace. Smells quite obviously of sweet piney hops. Carmalized malt as well. Tastes bitter, but not like I thought it would. Pine hops that stays with you but not like the typical high IBU beers. It’s actually rarely well balanced, and not like eating hops who.e.

Vignale (2243) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2015
Burk från Galatea/Craftbeer. Bärnstensfärgad, lätt disig, lågt skum. Mer västkust än östkust och humle är maffig. Oljig vätska, massor av grape, tall, resin och i grunden en stor kropp med riktigt bra karamellbas. Men det blir inte sött, kletigt och beskt (bara) det är också riktigt välbalanserat och faktiskt ganska drickvänligt för en DIPA. Lång fin oljig, småbesk eftersmak. Utan att humle är superpigg är detta ändå riktigt bra.

Âmbar, boa e persistente espuma. Aroma potente cítrico de abacaxi maduro, resinoso, pinho, laranja. Amargor intenso. Final amargo e seco, salivante. Ótima cerveja.

mambossa (36) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pour from can, bright amber with great head retention. Very nice complex, full sharp sour citrus nose with some sweetness to give it more body; soft hints of pine and a little bit of that earthy "funk". Grapefruit and piney hop flavor awesomely matched with honey-like malt and ripe citrus to bring it all together. Not over the top, perfectly balanced, very tasty and skillfully crafted IPA!

joejames (233) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Slim can to shaker glass. Pours clear amber orange, nice fluffy two finger head, some lacing and retention. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel and light pine. Taste is very bitter but not harsh, nice sweet malty backbone. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes bitter. Tasting notes of grapefruit, lemon, pine, lupulin oils (resin), currants, toffee and spruce tips. Alcohol is well hidden. Very nice double IPA!

12 ounce can pours a nice copper color with white fluffy head that lasts a long time. Good Pine and citrus aroma. Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. Nice lacing on the glass. Nice smooth bitterness throughout with a small alcohol burn at the end. Very nice IPA

PapaSkeetSkeet (919) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bright orange with one-inch off-white head, frothy and slow-to-fade. Aroma is orange, lemon, flowers, light pine sap, light caramel and biscuit (yum!) Body is medium, oily-syrupy, light carbonation, fine texture, creamy, medium-to-small burn. Flavor is lemon, orange, floral, resin. Some blue and blackberry. Large bitterness and gradual fade over 30 seconds. A very good IPA in a traditional citrus American hop style.

smaynard6000 (682) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2015
12oz can. Pours a dark golden color with small foamy tan colored head. Aroma is hoppy, with citrusy and spruce notes. Powerfully bitter with grapefruit notes dominating the palate. One for the hop heads, to be sure.
