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.

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!!!

Nice start with the complex sent of peach mango pineapple grassy earth pine smell. Starts off plain and smooth then bits your tounge with tropical fruits and pine resin. Nice smooth carbonation with a nice clean crisp dry finish. Much different from some of the best DIPA in vt but thatís because it has a malty boozy flat taste just before the finish but done much better the 90 min from dfh. Way to go six point for the first ale Iíve ever tried from you makes me wanna try more.

malvrich (122) - durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2015
12 oz. "dynamite stick" can. best by (my calc) 2/10/2016 Blvd. Tulip glass A: Poured hard I was able to coax a 1 finger craggy head. Beautiful almost ruby tinted dark orange/gold color with visible bubbles. Very good head retention and average patchy lace. S: Dry citrusy scent right from the can. Slight hint of wood and sweet pith. Light overall with alcohol peeking through as it warms. T: Fruity like a sour sweet wine and just about as boozy. Apple. Not sure how to describe the complexities of malt except perhaps woody. Tartness is nice M: Heavy bodied with lingering foam washing luxuriously over the lips. Not as resinous as expected. O: This is a beauty to look at in the glass. Strong vinous taste as expected. If all you want is to have one beer, you may be hard pressed to go with one thatís better. Not my style but I find it pretty hard to fault. More aroma would be nice if I must quibble.

Fairly reasonable example of the style, neither too bitter or too sweet. Medium amber with an off white head.
