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.

Resin pours a very clear, light gold color with a fluffy finger width head. Lots of tiny bubbles floating to the surface gives Resin an extremely appetizing appearance. The aroma is classic west coast hops. Full of citrus, pine and a bit of spice. In the flavor there is a fantastic mix of citrus and pine, with only a light malt backbone. Resin definitely showcases the excellent flavor and aromas of the hops. The slight spice is still present in the flavor. This is an incredibly easy to drink beer, with no hint of the 9.1% ABV. It is a little sticky (hence the resin?). There’s an average carbonation, and a medium body. Overall: Sixpoint’s Resin is a superb double IPA. Setting this beer apart from other double IPAs is just how easy to drink it is. If I had wanted to, I could have thrown it back in a couple long swigs, it’s just that good. Yet it is full of such great IPA flavor, without an intrusive hop bitterness. Sure, it’s still a bitter beer, just not overly so. If you see this one at the store, pick it up!!!

Interesting. A definite hop bomb, but with a slightly malty finish. I wouldn’t drink a lot of it.

This Ale has a copper gold color with a fruity hoppy scent. The flavor is juicy, jammy sticky resin, full of citrus notes with the perfect hop forward blast. Hail NY for such a delicious west coast inspired double IPA. Cheers!

Good, but nothing to floor you. Says what it means, and worth its price. Enjoyed it and would get again if there wasn’t another beer I hadn’t yet tried

355 ml. can sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Glad to finally try this one. Almost clear golden, little white head. Iron, citrus, lemon nose, very clean hops, light fresh pineapple. Bitter grass taste, touch odd & lingering, hop juice, resin, grapefruit, touch toffee, bit odd hop-profile. Light bodied. Nice but nothing stellar.

Wow I really like this beer. And now I know where to get it locally. Big resinny (sp) bitter hit but not in any way overpowering. The malt sweetness does a great job of balancing. Even though it’s fairly high alcohol, it doesn’t come across in the taste. I’m drinking from the can and it just feels right. It’s Headt Topper’s slightly younger brother. Well done.

Golden color, small head retention. Taste is crisp, floral and grass. The finish is surprisingly smooth compared to the up front hop bitterness. The finish is sweet and wheatie.

På burk @ Brew Dog Bar. Ljust bärnstensfärgad. Luktar humle. Len och mju smak med en perfekt beska.

This isn’t my favorite DIPA, but its high ABV is well hidden. I don’t really care for the hop profile. It’s not as crisp as I like. The mouthfeel is sort of thick and sticky. Still a good DIPA and definitely a bit different than most.

Fat på Flying Scotsman. Dimmig bärnsten med en tvåfingerskrona smutsvitt skum. Doftar kåda och malt. Smakar humle helt enkelt! Inte så kraftig för att vara en dIPA dock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brownish orange in color. Piney and Hoppy aroma with hints of malt. Very hoppy taste with notes of citrus. Pretty good beer.
