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.

Picked up a four pack at Giant Eagle in Lancaster, Ohio. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a decent sized and rocky off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Man, I can pick up the hop scent two feet away from the glass. More aromas of grapefruit, raisin, and some tropical fruit. Taste is full bodied, fruity to the max, with some multi-grain malt and a touch of grapefruit juice. Finish is mildly bitter with more of a citrus and spicy hop aftertaste that slowly disappears. Pushing into the hoppy barley wine territory. I like the Energy Beverage sized can.

Can at home. Well done, but too much going on here including 9% abv. Super slick mouthfeel. Aptly named as resin dominates. Nice citrus/ grapefruit and mango happening as well. On the sweet side- just feels really concentrated. 12 oz is more than enough.

Can. Really drinkable even sessionable at 9.1% but it is a dangerous beer. Sweet malts, roast, barley, earthy hop and bits of citrus. Great stuff!

Turtles (1472) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2016
355ml can from Systembolaget, Hornstull. Clear dark golden with a dense white head that leaves good lacing. Tropical fruity aroma, mango, pineapple, grapefruit and pine. Sweet, velvet mouthfeel. The taste starts fruity, matly and sweet, honey, orange, mango, caramel and biscuit. Finishes bitter with grapefruit, citrus zest, resin and pine. A bit too sweet.

3/IV/16 - 12Fl. Oz. can from a trade @ home - BB: 19/XI/16 (2016-306) Thanks to Brian L for the trade!

Clear orange beer, big aery irregular off-white head, little stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: ooh, lots and lots of citrus, resinous, hoppy, tropical fruits, caramel, sweet malts, mango. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malts, very fruity, hoppy, bit sugary, bit resinous, but not as much. Aftertaste: bitter hops, resinous, still lots of sweet malts, citrus, pineapple, mango. Lovely beer!

demannu (321) - New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2016
Might be my favorite ipa to date. Bold aroma with hops hitting floral, citrus, and pine notes. Pours deep color color with foamywhite head that leaves some lacing after dissipating. Glavor is balanced and not overly bitter. Ahain nicr variety of hops present in taste. Crisp and dry with a stickiness in the mouth. Good stuff.

CAN. Clear golden pour with small flat white head.. Passionfruit & piney hoppy nose.. Good malt stickiness, goes to a solid hoppy middle with a sappy feel, "resin" is a good call.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel
