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.

Smells grassy and piney with subtle hints of apricot and orange blossom. Taste is a bit more fruity with sweet apricot up front, some carmel flavors build towards the mid, but the resiny hops come in to clear out the sweetness on the finish. Nice easy mouthfeel, not too grippy for the IBU.

This stuff is pretty okay. Itís a strong hoppy beer w/ lots of melon and tropical fruit. Itís quite bitter but not harsh, a little bit sweet and juicy w/ some woody pine notes around the edges. It is pretty drinkable for the style--albeit a bit on the heavy side for my tastes. It really doesnít stand out to me as particularly good or bad but I reckon it will do in a pinch for most hop heads.

Amber-yellow color. Clear with a white, disappearing, head of foam; wish the head was more resilient. At least as hoppy as any IPA should be - especially an imperial. Acidic. Tastes of lemon peel. The bitterness compliments the acidic nature and leaves a crisp-bite finish.

Kleurplaatje (120) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2016
Flowery aroma. Hoppy, some dried fruits. Pretty decent. Flavor is quite sweet. Mildly bitter, bit of a yellow fruit feel as well. Nice hopbitter in the end. Full bodied, sticky texture... Definitely a good quencher.

Can poured to a snifter, and enjoyed along with the Brewdogs watching the Brooklyn episode. I donít watch this show as much as I would like, but it definitely inspires me to drink good beer at the same time. Especially if I have a bottle or can of the same beer they are drinking. Can picked up in Portland. Hop heavy aroma. Fruity up front, with a huge blast of tropical like hops in the finish. Like a sweet mango. High carb. Sweet, and very flavorful. Delicious imperial. Wind blowing over both testes.

Strong pine resin, super strong aroma and taste. Tropical and citrus is more my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SG111 (811) - New York, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Canned. Best by June 3, 2016. Pours honey color, white head. Aroma is fairly dank, some pine, resin (not as much as I expected though), tropical fruits. Flavor is sweet alcoholic sugars, a slight berry note, tropical fruit, quite a bit of dankness and then the resin comes in. Kind of oily slick mouthfeel. Fairly bitter hop resinous finish that gets increasingly hoppy as you go. Actually really pleasant.
