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.

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?). 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!!!

stantheman (900) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2016
On tap at Hop & Vine in north Burnaby. A medium amber beer with moderate white head and hop nose. Wow this is bitter! Clean strong bitter notes of hop resin lightly malted. Nice!

evergreen0199 (3020) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2016
A slender can at The William Jolle (Wetherspoons), Northwood Hills, Grtr London, England. Haven’t been to a Spoons for at least 4 months and I clock this in the fridge behind the pretty barmaid. A golden/orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, pine, orange marmalade, caramel on the nose. Tastes hoppy, pine, orange, caramel, quite bitter but then the sweetness creeps in. 2 cans of this went down a treat on a sunny sunday afternoon, forget the usual crap that Wetherspoons have on their taps and drink this beauty.

imdownthepub (13225) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Can, 355ml at a Wetherspoons. Hazy amber with white head. There is a powerful alcohol bitterness from the start of this one, yes resinous, hard hop notes, bittering but then with a sweet background. Challenging, particularly as a breakfast beer, which this was. Not particularly fruity for me, more the bittering part of the hop flavour. Good stuff.

SarkyNorthener (4043) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Can from St Matthews hall, Walsall. Slightly hazy amber beer with medium head. Aroma of orange marmalade, pine resin and caramel. Taste is pine resin, marmalade, caramel and stewed fruits. A little chewy. Excellent.

Erzengel (7755) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2016
many thanks to Bob. Great floral nose. Fresh smooth beginning. Easy to drink, not too intense but lots of floral and piney hops. The body is slightly sweetish, round with fresh piney hints.

nihtila (2884) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2016 Can at ?spoons. Pours clearish amber, white head. Nose is caramel, resin, pine, sweet toffee. Tastes caramel, resinous hops, orange peel, followed by huge kick of bitterness, grapefruit, dry caramel. Dry and bitter long finish. Good, find the finish a tad too bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (5227) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Can from Alexander Graham Bell. Appearance - golden amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - dank cellar, resin. Taste - more resin, tangy orange. Viscous but lean orange peel note clears it all up at the end. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - dangerously drinkable.

ipabr (150) - Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Imagine a really strong beer, then imagine dropping a few boiled barley sweets into it, that is this beer. Smells like ashtray with US style ipa hops. Sickly sweetness disguises the alcohol. See people actually saying that they will try it again based on its ratings, this is hideous....

Biroholik (866) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Kolor: Pomarańczowy, oczywiście jak to w USA - klarowny;)
Piana: Biała, zbudowana z małych pęcherzyków powietrza, dość lekka. Nie ma wielkiej czapy puszystego puchu. Jest za to umiarkowana szumowina, która śmiało otacza ścianki TeKu swoją koronką. Po zamieszaniu powraca do niewielkich rozmiarów. Całkiem spoko.
Zapach: Jeśli mam być szczerym to aromat może i jest wyraźny, ale jak na Double IPA wciąż troszeczkę za słaby. Jak sama nazwa wskazuje jest tutaj mnóstwo żywicznych gałązek i drewno z lasów sosnowych. Po drugiej stronie barykady owoce tropikalne i cytrusowe. Jest soczyste mango, ale i pomarańcza i ananas. Pod spodem odrobina karmelu, ale tylko akcent.
Smak: Kurde, nie wiem jak Ci Yankesi to robią?! W smaku piwo jest zajebiste. Większość tych amerykańskich Double IPA ma posmaki ziołowe z wyraźnym żywicznym, a potem i owocowym smakiem. Resin ma w smaku gorzkie pamarańcze, mandarynki i bardzo dużo ananasa. Żywicy jest tutaj przesyt, wypływa z każdej części puszeczki. Karmelu w aromacie było niewiele, w smaku go nie ma w ogóle. Na finiszu jest delikatna pikantność od chmielu. Goryczka wysoka, ale krótka, idealnie wpleciona w całość. Nie drażni ani podniebienia, ani gardła, ani języka. Ziołowy posmak pozostaje w ustach tylko do chwili wzięcia kolejnego łyka. 103 IBU jest jak najbardziej realne. Ukrycie procentów wydaje się kpiną Sixpointa z innych browarów. Przy 9,1% alk. piwo oscyluje na granicy pomiędzy super pijalnym, a super-sesyjnym IPA. Niebywała lekkość, ale tylko w degustacji. W teksturze zbita, oleista, płynna masa. Fantastyczny balans i jedno z lepszych Double IPA jakie piłem! Wysycenie: Średnie. Podsumowanie: Krótko, zwięźle i na temat. Nie mam pojęcia jak Amerykanie to robią, że potrafią warzyć tak potężne (9,1% alk.) Double IPA, ale które są wciąż lekkie i pijalne jak Session IPA. Resin pachnie żywicą z amerykańskich lasów oraz owocami tropikalnymi. Smakuje natomiast cytrusami, z których najbardziej przed szereg wypycha się mandarynka, ananas i pomarańcza. Wszystko w tym piwie zagrało na tip-top. Bardzo dobry produkt i jeszcze raz to podkreślę - jedno z lepszych IIPA w moim życiu.

mile (3807) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Can. Dark golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light - some caramel and some tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light - some caramel and tropical fruitiness, piney/grapefruit hoppyness, faint - light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light - some tropical fruitiness, lots of piney - some grapefruit hoppyness, light alcohol. Well hopped IIPA. Bit too much caramel in the aroma. 9,1% makes the finish drier though.
