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!!!

Can. Nice and pungent with lots of pine and resin and a bit of citrus. Alcohol is very well hidden and while it's quite bitter it never gets overwhelming. Nice.

beeratarian (102) - cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Iíve had many times, first time reviewing. 11.99 a six in cans. Pour is golden to copper with thick off white head. Aroma is sweet and a bit of pine and fruitiness. Flavor is somewhat sweet with pineapple and some hop bitterness and pine. Not really resinous like you would think. Worth the price for a go to beer.

Shark_Pants (262) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2014
Nice clear golden orange with small soapy head that recedes to a film. Aroma is certainly resinous, with concentrated pine, citrus, freshly mown grass and honey. The taste is also really concentrated, with resin, grass, pine, sweet malts, grapefruit, lime. Fairly full bodied. D/IIPAs arenít normally my thing but this is spectacular. Feels like I could drink it all day but Iím sure the 9.1% ABV would disagree.

gramity (1441) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Resin pours a bright orange. Leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma is herbal and dank. Taste has some navel orange notes but also carries a wallop of alcohol. The bitterness is there at the top of the mouth. But doesnít really smack you much. A bit medicinal too.

Happen to try this bad boy with the chance of it being as good as Bengali. Resin far exceeded my expectations. my new go too really. very "west coast-y" has a very bright hoppiness to it. crisp, refreshing, bright, herb-pine-citrus top and back bone. leaves a pleasant hop linger. Bravo, Sixpoint!

Pour is copper in color. some small head, white, is present. Aroma is floral and Piney in nature, with some spicy, earthy tones as well. Taste is similar, with sweet malts there. Light body, somewhat disappointing.

Intense hoppy flavor. Sweet hoppy gray taste. A bit flat. Medium bitter aftertaste long lasting.

Huge spongy head. Hops whaft up and smack you in the nose. Bam. Smooth mouth feel a first add the flavors unfold gradually. Leaves a peppery hop residue in the sides of the mouth. I really like this.
