mrhopsbeertalk (301) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Very disappointing. People be warned, this is not a TIPA or even a DIPA... to me this smells and tastes like a watered down boozy barley wine. The aroma and flavor is dominated by alcohol and malt with just a few hoppy citrus notes in the nose and seemingly none in the flavor. As someone who LOVES Resin I could not be more surprised at how understated the hops are in this ale. More power to sixpoint for defying styles and tradition, but, as in this case, sometimes that will be unfortunately misleading and result in customer disappointment.

Ive had this one many times, but recently I got it from the source. I didnt realize they didnt do tours at their Brooklyn location, but they were nice enough to still show me around and even gave me a free pack of this and their resin. Aroma is loaded with hops. Tons of bitter notes and floral hops. Lots of pine and a good balanced maltiness. Taste is bitter with sweet fruit. Subtle booziness to this one as well on the back end.

bbbeer (773) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Hazy golden brown, small off-white head. Aroma pine and alcohol. Medium full body, boozy, oily mouthfeel. Some bitterness but fairly sweet. Pine flavors. The resiny flavors are good but a little too much alcohol and not quite in balance.

beerextreme (11) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Skipping its baby brother if you can call it that (Resin) and going straight to 11. The nose is massive with the hop aroma of fruits and pine just grabbing you. The pallet is equally as big and delivers as it promised, a big IPA. The scary thing is how smooth it is and easy it goes down.

On tap at Armakeggon 2016. Pretty much what it says on the label, huge citrus flavours and a big resin finish.

Hopmaestro (1442) - rebro, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2016
Aroma is citrus and oranges with an apparent sweet malty presence. Slight resin on here as well. Taste is really sweet and malty at first. A lot of sweet fruits as well, like ripe pineapples and sunkissed mangos. I catch some kind of honey sweetness as well. In the end theres a big alcoholic sting on the tip of the tongue with a really citrusy finish. A tad too boozy to be really top notch, but still tasty and I got what I expected, a kick in the ass.

Canned from Systembolaget Clear golden with a medium head. Resinous and alcoholic in both aroma and flavour. Medium bitterness with to much alcohol.

mzaar (3000) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
Burk. Orange l med ett litet vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av apelsin, alkohol, grapefrukt och tall. Alldeles fr mycket alkohol i munnen fr min smak. Lite som att suga p frukterna i en punchbl - gott till en brjan, rtt trttsamt i lngden.

bookman10 (1014) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pours a clear copper-amber, with little by way of head. Aroma is marked by fruit and hops and booze. Flavor is also overly boozy, with some hops and fruit, but hidden under the alcohol. This could be good if it had a lot more balance, but as it is, its just too much booze and too little else.
