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.

rymould (7) - Three Bridges, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
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?). Thereís an average carbonation, and a medium body. Overall: Sixpointís 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, itís just that good. Yet it is full of such great IPA flavor, without an intrusive hop bitterness. Sure, itís still a bitter beer, just not overly so. If you see this one at the store, pick it up!!!

Koskela (468) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Sweet malt and either piny or orange/grapefruit peel aromas come from this haziesh orangish reddish brew with a small white head. The taste is sweet malt with tiny carb bubbles and a bit of hop bitterness but not horrible. The hop flavor is a bit lacking. The aftertaste is sweet with slight bitter. It's medium bodied with slight alcohol warming

Can at home. Well done, but too much going on here including 9% abv. Super slick mouthfeel. Aptly named as resin dominates. Nice citrus/ grapefruit and mango happening as well. On the sweet side- just feels really concentrated. 12 oz is more than enough.

60minuteman (1218) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2016
Can. Really drinkable even sessionable at 9.1% but it is a dangerous beer. Sweet malts, roast, barley, earthy hop and bits of citrus. Great stuff!

Turtles (1475) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2016
355ml can from Systembolaget, Hornstull. Clear dark golden with a dense white head that leaves good lacing. Tropical fruity aroma, mango, pineapple, grapefruit and pine. Sweet, velvet mouthfeel. The taste starts fruity, matly and sweet, honey, orange, mango, caramel and biscuit. Finishes bitter with grapefruit, citrus zest, resin and pine. A bit too sweet.

3/IV/16 - 12Fl. Oz. can from a trade @ home - BB: 19/XI/16 (2016-306) Thanks to Brian L for the trade!

Clear orange beer, big aery irregular off-white head, little stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: ooh, lots and lots of citrus, resinous, hoppy, tropical fruits, caramel, sweet malts, mango. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malts, very fruity, hoppy, bit sugary, bit resinous, but not as much. Aftertaste: bitter hops, resinous, still lots of sweet malts, citrus, pineapple, mango. Lovely beer!

Might be my favorite ipa to date. Bold aroma with hops hitting floral, citrus, and pine notes. Pours deep color color with foamywhite head that leaves some lacing after dissipating. Glavor is balanced and not overly bitter. Ahain nicr variety of hops present in taste. Crisp and dry with a stickiness in the mouth. Good stuff.
