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.

Pours a reddish amber with some orange highlights. Very subtle aroma on this one. A little bit of over ripened grapefruit and some grass. Not a whole lot going on in the aroma. What follows is a pleasant, balanced, and not so in your face DIPA. Somewhat medium bodied with some resinous sticky hops. Lemon, grapefruit skin, grass, and some caramel malt comprise the flavor. All pretty balanced with a hair of bitterness in the finish. Pretty easy drinking.

Draft, but I appreciate the risk in canning a 9.1 percent DIPA. Hop freshness is the first introduction to the nose and palate -- sticky grapefruit, lemon, leather and sage. But the malts are surprisingly strong, and that concludes in a well-balanced beer that is very drinkable and enjoyable through and through.

Has a pretty dark auburn color. Smell is of piney hops. Holy hops, this beer is bitter. Pine, a touch of citrus and alcohol. I like hops but this beer has no balance to speak of. Overall a decent beer, but nothing great.

Oh christmas tree can, you look glorious... Aggresive pour in to a snifter. Dark red in color... big head with small bubbles. Very danky, resiny aroma. Taste is intially a big sweet sugary pine notes. Danky, resin notes....sticky. Not very balanced just a bitter tongue bruiser. Sweet hop bomb. Good amount of carbonation. Good job hiding the alcohol. Overall. Nice DIPA

This one is right up my alley. Big pine and citrus aroma bursts from the pop top. A very bitter beer to say the least. A bit of sweet malt that is quickly overwhelmed by the hops. Nice looking slightly red amber.

Thin off white head with fair retention and a bit of sticky lace. Lightly hazed, copper/amber hued brew. Piney hop nose, fairly juicy and attractive, little earth and grapefruit. Body is med/full, chewy, low carbonation, resiny, lil sticky on the lips. Lots of juicy hop flavor, pine, grapefruit, dankness with a touch of lightly sweet caramel malts along for the ride. Mouthwatering and juicy. Nice bitter finish, lil fruit. nice. 12oz can from statelineliquors.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 On tap at Good Beer - awesome IIPA, and one of the best things I’ve had from a super brewery! Sixpoint just seems to get better and better and to keep churning out interesting releases. Nice orange-red pour. Sweet, floral, resiny IPA aroma with a floral quality that lingers for a bit. Smooth, sweet, and rich. The flavor is complex, tingley, and well-balanced between serious infusions of tasty hops and heavy loads of fine malts. I expected 6pt to do an excellent big IPA someday, and they have delivered. BUT I had to take a couple of points off after having it from a can. That time it got too darn overwhelmingly bitter for my poor little palate. For some reason I found the draft to be a lot more enjoyable.

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Deep coppery amber in color with a light tan head that is foamy but fades and laces soon after pour. Hoppy aroma. Floral hops are right up front with a nice, slightly bitter flavor that lasts through to the finish. A tad bit earthy, hints of pine, citrus zest, and spice. Amazing for a canned beer. Would definitely have this again.

The aroma of this beer was very hoppy with a hint of sugar and sweetness. Taste was of fresh hops and a very sticky malt. Finish that stuck to the palate and kept the hops very well. Great DIPA.

can poured a dark red amber color with a thin off white head. aroma has citrus, resiny pine, good malted body, and light sweetness. mouth feel is fuller than expected hitting a medium and there is average carbonation. flavor brings on the resin, pine, medium bitterness, citrus rind, gets a bit sticky, and finishes with light heat and lingering resins. did I mention the resin because the name is very fitting.
