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.

superspak (3327) - Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2015
12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 12/22/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, resinous/sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

This may be one of the nicest looking beers I can remember pouring with a golden, light brown color and a frothy head. Definitely pick up a piney, spruce aroma - possibly, a little citrus. The taste is harder to describe beside the bitterness - which isn’t too overpowering. The piney/sprucey thing comes up with the taste as well. With 103 IBUs, this beer leaves an aftertaste. Not a beer to have when you’re having more than one but a neat beer for sure. Heard about it for a while and glad I finally had one.

Vaiz (3792) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2015
Can at home. Clear orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of pine, resin, floral hops and very clean. Flavor is bitter, solid bodied hops. Nice and to-the-point IPA.

Bottle - pours golden with a white head . Peach, citrus, pine and biscuit aroma. Lots of hop bitterness up front with a dry lingering finish. Creamy palate.

Dacrza (615) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2015
DATE TASTED: June 12, 2015... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: the last day of school as a full-time teacher...next stop, supervision! APPEARANCE: pours a clear, auburn body with promising carbonation; head forms like thick webbing that leaves lacing like tongues of fire; lacing creates continents... AROMA: I would read this in my best Butthead voice: "Uh, yeah...it’s like, resin and stuff..." A spruce tunnel burrows into the nose, with an evergreen cone that evokes Christmastime; melon arrives late, but citrus suggestions give the beer a rounded finish... PALATE: HEAVY, coating, warming body that clings at the teeth and blankets the throat; the finish is syrupy but not medicinal... TASTE: the hop cone phenomena has exploded in this, with fruity and spirited flavors--cherry, whiskey, and citrus fruits--building a stronger profile than first experienced.... OVERALL: a powerhouse of a canned beer that holds its 9.1 ABV close to its vest; singular in its resinous effect, but powerful, thick and affecting in its sipping...

Bacterial (2163) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Clear bright amber pour with a slight white head. Nice resin hoppy nose, some orange. Low bitterness until the very end. Big hops. Juicy citrus and earthy. Good. Odd small can.

KoRoBeNiKi (84) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Can: Appearance: light orange/brown color with a very small head. Aroma: malt, caramel, light bitter citrus Taste: similar to the aroma with more caramel and a bit more bitter. Palate: Do I detect a little bit of non-bitter fruit? Refreshing, as per most of Sixpoint. A more refreshing take on a DIPA, less hoppy than most, not a bad thing to be honest. Exactly as described, loosely a DIPA.

Vestlake (211) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Aroma is piney and sweet malt. Taste is the same with a very strong bitter finish.
