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.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Aroma - hops, alcohol, citrus ( grapefruit), and drupe fruit (peach) are present - deep beneath all that is caramel malt Appearance - the body color is an orange amber, liquid is hazy, and the head sets up about 1/2" of white head, and then settles down to a halo, with a tiny bubble film on the top of the body. Taste - that is something else, after reading the description - was expecting a kick in the face. This is extremely well complimented by malts and yeast. The hops really dont scream at you like other big IPA and DIPAs - its almost more citrus and drupe fruit (peach primarily) / there is a sort of grapefruit and San Benedetto Peach tea quality about its taste - sort of sweet. Really intoxicating. Palate - body is light, the texture thin, carbonation is lively, the finish is totally uncharacteristic of anything Ive had up to this point. Its abrupt on the hop almost really never there - it does however let you know the hop wash was there in the sides of the tongue a little later, but with only minor elements. A dare I say it, a smooth DIPA?!

Resin pours a bronze color with a large frothy head. There is strong hop aroma. The taste has a huge hop flavor; hop bomb. Very strong flavors, very strong body and yet very drinkable. Overall its a fantastic IPA, full flavors, strong flavors, and yet so drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
