COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very bitter. Medium malt backbone, which gives it at least a hint of balance. Resiny, dank, sticky, citrusy hops. Not much subtlety or complexity, just an in-your-face DIPA. I donít think itís as unique as they make it out to be, but itís a good representation of the style. Unfortunately I havenít really been into the ultra-bitter IPAís lately, otherwise I might have rated this one a bit higher.

Pours clear deep amber with some white head. A caramel aroma with some citrus and resin. Rather sweet with a good bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

notayankee (26) - Arkansas, USA - APR 30, 2015
Can poured into pint glass. Aroma is true to the name with s strong hit of resin, combined with nice floral notes. Appearance is a nice clear, reddish gold color with a nice 1 inch white foam head. Taste is very bitter, I say that in a good way. I can actually apply the umami keyword here, as it hits on all cylinders. Palate is slick with average carbonation, not too much nor too little. Finish is long and bitter. This was an excellent beer.

(can) The aroma is clean and fairly hoppy. Clear golden complexion with this white head. The flavor is piney resin but surprisingly smooth. The ABV is extremely well hidden.

This is a beautiful Double IPA. Fresh floral notes and lots of dry hops in the aroma, very clean taste. At 103 IBU and 9.1% you might expect a lot of alcohol on the palate, but you get lovely hops and a lingering aftertaste.

Doofgoblin (404) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - APR 16, 2015
I really like this. The flavor is just awesome and the finish is so clean, crisp, and bitting it just begs for another taste. The aroma is probably the only let down. I just wanted it to hit me over the head, but it did not. The design on the can gives me the impression of an eastern european vibe. But whatís so good is the sweet juicy hop with tons of resin goodness that is punctuated by a sweet and complimentary malt delivery system. The finish is the best part: bitter, clean, and...wow feel that coating of hop oil? Saint Lupulin, you know what Iím sayiní...

rejtable (1616) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Big huge hop juice beer. Pours orange, clear limited head some clumpy lacing. Nose is very resin, pine. Flavours are resin, fresh pine, fresh citrus and some very light syrup in the back. Taste med/big bitter, light/med sweet with some from fruit some from malt. Full sticky body with lively csrbonation and long lasting bitter.
