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.

Pours a nice golden yellow/orange with a thick head that lingers. Aroma is very citrus forward with some pine and grass and a hint of hop aroma. Taste is very well balanced and hides the IBU and ABV very, very well. Palate is well balanced with some citrus that is followed quickly by a nice malt and hop balance. It isnt until the finish that the bitterness of the hops really comes through.

jh773 (269) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 Clear orange, decent head. Smells like evergreen, juniper, mint, pine sap, warm. Bitter resin, grapefruit peel, pine needles. Very clean flavor. Light on the palate; long bitter finish.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - MAR 14, 2014
Im finding the same issue with most beers from Sixpoint, and this was no different. Lovely hoppy aroma of grapefruit, big juicy hops, its making a big promise that I hope it can keep. Clear amber pour, and again, not that its bad, but its the norm. Taste doesnt live up to the aroma, burnt resin flavor, syrupy, without imagination.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Tall, skinny, 12oz can. Golden, Orange color. Foamy tan head. Aromatics of resiny hops. Loads of hops in the nose. Tastes of pale malts, sweet caramels; all undertoned by the huge hops. Dry hopped, long boil hopped. Lingering bitterness has characteristics of pine, citrus rind. Loads if resin. (3994)

Pint draft at Plan B in West Hartford, CT. Pour is a hazy copper with a fluffy off white head. Smell is spicy with oily hops and sweet malt, plenty if citrus. Taste is surprisingly malty with sweetness of caramel, bright citrus and dank piney hops. Alcohol very well hidden, and not overly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A- Hazy orange. Two finger head dissipated after 2 minutes to a light foam. great lacing. S- citrus and piney smells, couldnt pinpoint an exact citrus fruit, possibly orange. T- Here is where the orange comes out with some piney "resin". Delicious to say the least. M- Perfectly carbonated. A thicker feeling brew that tingles the senses. O- A very tasty beer. One of my top 5 IPAs so far. The flavors/smell/taste all balance great, with 9.1% ABV to boot! Definitely grabbing this again!

Can as a bonus in a recent trade. Coincidentally these guys are relatively new to Georgia although I havent had any of their beers yet. This is a nice ipa. Enamel piercing pine hop aromas and flavors. Dark orange color with a white head and lots of lacing. Bit of a sweet caramel and orange mouth feel as it warms a bit. Big body and big stickiness.

Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, fruit, toastiness and some hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a nicely balanced finish. Good stuff.
