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.

Sampled from can at Standard Market, Westmont. This puppy zeroes in on the resiny character of every hop, bringing out notes of pine tar if you’re not careful. A deceptively light hop note in the nose, al;so just the same color as the Sweet Action. But a bigger malt backbone, and it’s needed, too. A lot of resin sticking on my tongue, my inside cheeks, what have you. If I spill some on me, I’d be a human Post-It Note.

John25 (352) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Can. Almost clear burnt gold with a ton of lacing. Aroma is dank sweet pine. The taste adds super bitter resin notes but, there's also a metallic/solvent bite in the finish. The mouthfeel comes on with a strong attack and bite with high carb and a slick resinous finish. Pretty good but, lacking balance - could be much better and just as "big." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sudomorph (494) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
12fl oz can. Pours a cloudy orange with a white, fluffy, one finger head that laces. Mild sediment floating from the bottom of the can. Aroma is big and juicy. Resin, pine, citrus, and a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is bitter but with a faint, syrup sweetness. Resin, pine, a touch of citrus, and a hint of alcohol taste and warmth. Bitter, resin aftertaste. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Mild resin texture in the mouth. Overall exactly what the name implies. Resin, pine, some alcohol. A nice IIPA.

thicksuds (408) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Solid DIPA, very hoppy and bitter with a strong aftertaste, high abv will kncok you back a bit, definitely a solid beer but probably not something I will add to my regular rotation.

Nice touch of grapefruit/citrus, pine, some grass, and solid hop presence obviously. Slightly bitter finish. Solid double.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
355ml can. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Grapefruit, pine and mango hops and slightly grainy caramel malt make up the aroma. Potent grapefruit hops up front soften a little into mango leading into the mid-palate. This offers charry and caramel malt flavours, with slightly oily resin hops giving it a bitter finish. A solidly enjoyable DIPA.

This beer is so good I chew on the empty cans for hours just to get all the drops that stayed in the can
