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.

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!!!

C’est bien houblonné en effet et résineux aussi ... Peut-être un peu trop raide dans ses bottes, sans twist réconfortant ... Un peu courte mais très "drinkable"

Can. Super hoppy, resiny, citrusy. Alcohol barely evident. Massive IIPA and one I’ll seek out again.

Ericular (949) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pours a perfect amber with lasting pillowy, creamy beige head and great lacing. Aroma is sweet with fruit and resinous pine. Taste is interesting in its flow, starting with a dark fruity sweetness right away. This quickly fades away to almost nothing for a few seconds, and then gradually building is a wave of bitter, resinous grass and pine hops. The taste ends with some malt coming back in the retronasal. The hollow middle makes this extremely drinkable, and would go great with some greasy pub food. Palate is pretty thick and smooth for the style. This isn’t super complex and isn’t necessarily the tastiest flavor profile I’ve ever had, but it’s good and drinkable and strong - and that has to count for something.

boto (2083) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUL 24, 2016
12oz can: This one pours a cloudy, slightly orangish color. There was a huge head that dropped off rather quickly and left some lacing. The aroma is good. Tropical fruit and pine notes. Some maltiness coming thru also. The taste is good. Some bitterness and sweetness at the same time. Malts, pine and some tropical fruits. A good brew.

Idiosynkrasie (6199) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2016
355ml can. Minimally cloudy, orangey golden to amber colour with average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Resinous, pieny and minimally citrusy hoppy aroma, jelly berry fruitiness in orange and pineapple direction. Taste delivers identical flavours with the same slightly artificial touch of jelly berry fruitiness, enormous hop bitterness is caught by a strong pale malty backbone; works on a high level, but the pattern of malt and hop vibrations has a somehow neutralising interference effect concerning complexity; therfore an amplifying overlay effect concerning alcoholic impact. Whew!
