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.

The name speaks for itself, the taste is dominated by resiny, piney hops, with the malt and just a touch of alcohol underneath. Relatively well balanced. A good DIPA, but not the best. And I’m not sure I like the energy drink cans it comes in.

Draft at ChurchKey. Poured a clear dark amber color, medium sized white head. Aroma was... resin. Yep. But in all seriousness, it was heavy on the pine sap, needle notes. Flavor was medium malts, heavy on the hops - woah so many hops.

12 oz tall boy slim can from Spirits Rt 37. Poured a surprisingly super deep red amber body under an average sized tight foamy light beige head. Aroma was a big burst of grapefruit along with grains and toast followed by a touch of orange marmalade. The palate was fuller and thick with a syrupy feel and strong carbonation. Flavor was far more grainy than I like in my DIPAs with bitterness from lemon and grapefruit rind and a faint hint of vanilla. Meh it’s okay but nothing to write home about.

JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Can shared by a friend. Clear amber/copper pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of amber malt, a bit of sweetness and some grassy hops. Flavor starts with earthy hops, then moves to amber malt before a grassy hop finish.

Can. Pours deep amber with an off white head. Resinous pine, floral hops, and a light sweetness. The flavor has piney hops and sweet toffee malts, with some light floral hoppy notes as well. A well balanced resinous hop blast.

Shared with travlr at ChurchKey. The beer itself is a dark clear amber, with a fluffy head. It looks beautiful. Smell is piny and resinous. Somehow I get the idea that it’s exactly what they’re going for? Awesome. Taste is similar, with some dryish malt character balanced by some zesty hops. Word.

boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Can... Poured deep red with a thick, frothy, beige head. Big hop nose with earthy pepper-like qualities and citrus. Flavor wise was so much sweeter and malt forward. Must have had some killer dry-hopping. Like a west coast IPA on the nose and an East Coast IPA on the palate.

Draft courtesy of evanlarkin, thanks! Nice looking variegated amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of pine resin. Taste is similar, but well balanced. Nice.

Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Aroma of pine sap, slight hints of caramel malt. Pours deep orange with a medium foamy head. Taste is bitter pines and subtle malts. Very hoppy and great.
