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.

Aroma: soft floral tones, citrus fruit, peach. Appearance: clear golden orange. Taste: initial dry fruity flavors, fresh hop bitterness, malty undertones. Palate: fresh, lively carbonation, balanced hop and pale malt flavors, some boozy sensation in the finish.

This beer is so good I chew on the empty cans for hours just to get all the drops that stayed in the can

This beer is freaking delicious - for the hopheads anyway. The aroma is the next best thing to smelling a bunch of hop pellets. Pours hazy gold with a lasting head. Bitter, small malt presence but a clean easy finish. Damn I love this IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the best double IPA in the world. I did a taste test against Stone Ruination IPA and this won by a nose. Just pop the can pour it look at it and drink it OMG!

Massive resinous hop aroma - huge sweet caramel malt palate then the hops kick in - enormously bitter - I like that, but too sweet for perfect marks. A great ale.

A- Hazy orange. Two finger head dissipated after 2 minutes to a light foam. great lacing. S- citrus and piney smells, couldnít pinpoint an exact citrus fruit, possibly orange. T- Here is where the orange comes out with some piney "resin". Delicious to say the least. M- Perfectly carbonated. A thicker feeling brew that tingles the senses. O- A very tasty beer. One of my top 5 IPAs so far. The flavors/smell/taste all balance great, with 9.1% ABV to boot! Definitely grabbing this again!

Hugely impressed. I cannot believe this comes out of a can this good. Piney hoppy resin with smooth bitterness. Complex and satisfying.

Light copper color with little lacing. Beer starts out a bit sweet and citrusy, with lots of hop bitterness at the end. This beer is totally in balance. 9.1 alcohol is pretty well hidden.

12oz Skim Can. Wow! This is one tasty beer! Full of nice fruity flavors like Grapfruit and oranges. Big hop slap in the face with a golden bitter finish. Fantastic!
