COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and were ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isnt a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going round this winter. It isnt our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. Its 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.

CacheManyHose (622) - HONG KONG - NOV 15, 2016
Can (nice design!) from Brewcraft. Drank w Matt at home. Clear light brown-orange pour, fine white fizzy head, no lacing. Smells of juicy sweet malt, light peppery spice, moderate orange and mango, moderate piny hop, lots of booze, creamy/smooth and bitter and somewhat spicy. Taste is maaassive resin, pine needles so bitter its almost minty, Body is slick, very chewy middle, sharp lightly acidic malt. Nose and palate are excellent, taste is such aggressive resin that its almost too much.

Bontus (774) - Flanders, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2016
Can, dranken Geers. Pours golden with a diminishing bubbly head. Nose of resin, pine, slight caramalt too. Taste is bitter from start to end, palate is dominated by the bitterness, finish is long. Its a strong piny double IPA as I like them, not for sessions.

Swaroga (2128) - Gdańsk, POLAND - NOV 6, 2016
A can at a bar. The beer has a very nice orange color with good head. Aroma is typical for this style. Very refreshing and west coast like. Alcohol is well hidden and its easy to drink. The hops are quite old in this one yet it has a nice round and balanced overall flavor. Have to try it when its fresh.

Heidbummer (320) - SCOTLAND - OCT 28, 2016
Can at Wetherspoons. Pours viscous deep gold with islands of white head. Big pine and toffee nose, hint of burnt orange marmalade. Lovely balance of bitterness, hops, caramel, pine, resin (duh!), sweetness. Big mouthfeel and just enough booze. Its somewhere between an American and low countries DIPA/Imperial for me. Bloody good. Bit of a beast!

Taste of citrus, peaches and pine needles followed by mid-dry resinous bitterness to a lingering aftertaste. Full bodied. Strong and tasty (Exeter 29.09.2016).

Happily, its becoming increasingly common for me to have a beer thats been on my radar for some time. Usually, I have to use vague terms and say Ive wanted something "for a while." I can pinpoint the time and place of when I decided I wanted to try Resin. Junior year in my dorm room. I was still new to beer but figuring out I really liked hops. A site called BrewGene (I say site because I was too poor for a smartphone and didnt get the app) featured this as one its Top 100. My eyes were drawn to the cool can and the Imperial IPA listing. Fast forward 3 years. A six pack of Resin came back with me from NYC in my suitcase. Enough of all that. Pour is orange and unusually clear for an IPA. Dank nose with pine, passion fruit, grapefruit, and orange. More of the same in the flavor plus mango. Very aggressive - lots of bitterness. Its a big goddamn chewy beer. The alcohols practically undetectable under all the hops. As always, this is the kind of thing that will thrill hopheads and perplex anyone else.
