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.

zvsn (622) - ISRAEL - OCT 2, 2014
Can sample at Sixpoint tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Hazy orange with a huge off-white head. Pungent aroma with citrus and tropical fruits, pine and grass in the nose. Sweetish, fruity, lemon peel, grapefruit, grassy and quite "green", light maltiness, strong herbal and grassy hoppy bitterness, long bitter finish. Medium-full bodied, dry and extremely drinkable.

BuckeyeBoy (2752) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 29, 2014
on tap at Stout. pours out a golden topped with a nice head. Nose is grapefruits, floral hops, lemon zest, and some rich malts. Taste is caramel, citrus hops, tropical fruits, and a nice floral note.

ramboraffe (456) - SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2014
355 ml can. Half clear golden with white head, hard to tell exactly the bar was dark. Smell is floral pine hops with grapefruit and dried fruit, raisin. Taste is bitter grapefruit hoppy with flowers and pine. Big body with sweet caramel malty and dried fruit. Dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation.

adamlikesbeer (5) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2014 does not count
Aroma: Resin, the name makes sense! Also some citrus and pinetree. Slight alcohol in the nose. Beautiful golden color, white head dissipates quite quickly. Not a strong malt-flavor on this one, maybe a bit of caramel. Its all about the hops. Not overly bitter and does not linger. Carries its alcohol well. Really a nice beer, while not being a top of its style.

"This was the favorite of a couple in our party at Canfest. Maaaybe top 5 for me, but not a favorite. The name, however, is fitting, as citrus and pine resin are the dominant players in this nice, bright, hoppy, and still restrained and balanced IIPA. I’d buy again."

JanLaursen (3140) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Dåse. Supersmuk øl: Klar gylden med et, stort, cremet, hvidt skum. Dufter af fyrnåle og cittonconfit. Sød, krydret, næsten klistret, men også harpiks-og fyrnåle-bitter. Super balanceret. Top!

joeneugs (3263) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Can. It pours a golden color with a tall off white head. The aroma is floral with some fruit candy and honey. The flavor is the same. Sugary fruit candy with some florals. Honey sweetness with nice, balancing solid bitterness. Overall, not bad but too sweet.

veronneaupy (140) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Au nez, on dénote un fort côté résineux comme son nom en fait présage. On sent aussi un sucre presque bonbon et un malt caramélisé. En bouche, l'houblon se dévoile, mais est contrebalancé par un goût sucré qui rappelle un peu la pêche. En finale, le côté sucré rivalise bien avec l'amertume pour s'éteindre en même temps. Une bonne IPA différente de celles que je suis habitué de boire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting. A definite hop bomb, but with a slightly malty finish. I wouldn’t drink a lot of it.

This Ale has a copper gold color with a fruity hoppy scent. The flavor is juicy, jammy sticky resin, full of citrus notes with the perfect hop forward blast. Hail NY for such a delicious west coast inspired double IPA. Cheers!
