COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Grapefruit and pineapple, very nice. Color is clear, nothing special. Some lacing. Palate is well balanced, a bit dry, booze is very well hidden. A good example of the style.

Tessic (1035) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
This ale poured an medium Amber colour with a big, creamy head. Scents include hops, hops and more hops. Citrus and grass most prominent. First swig was off the charts hoppy. Very little malt flavour, all hops. You can pretty much pick out all different flavours of hops. Citrus, grass, spruce. Perfect example of an overhopped beer. Finish is hops, palate is hops. Might as well just eat hops and cut out the middleman.

Canette avec un BB du 13/10/2016. Robe jaune-orangée assez trouble avec un beau col de mousse blanc et moyennement dense qui s’estompe lentement. Arômes comportant un mélange équilibré de résine, agrumes et fruits tropicaux. On sent également un léger malt caramélisé et des effluves d’alcool typiques de ces doubles ipa à fort taux d’alcool. En bouche, plutôt malté, légère dose caramélisée, houblons resineux et agrumes avec un peu de zeste de pamplemousse ainsi que de la mangue et abricot. L’alcool vient rapidement nous rapeller qu’elle est là. La finale est résineuse et assez collante avec un petit goût d’alcool et pamplemousse. La texture est plutôt juteuse et épaisse, le corps moyen. Bonne double ipa fruitée mais l’alcool prend un peu trop de place.

Luvystypotables (1613) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2016
A resiny hop aroma with notes of caramel and malt. Pours a clear caramel color with a well laced white head. A delicious taste of resiny hops with a hint of sweet malt and caramel. Medium body oily feel with a bitter hop finish.

Poured from a growler on a 100 degree day after taking the girls fishing this morning. Hops and strong which helps kill the fish smell and the worm guts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at pizza pub in Pine City. Lots of bitterness - good aftertaste and smooth for a big beer.

Achel (390) - Ioannina, GREECE - AUG 4, 2016
This one pours a cloudy, slightly orangish color. There was a huge head that dropped off rather quickly and left some lacing. The aroma is good. Tropical fruit and pine notes. Some maltiness coming thru also. The taste is good. Some bitterness and sweetness at the same time. Malts, pine and some tropical fruits. A good brew.
