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.

poured from can into tulip, a orange amber with small white head and some lacing. aroma was of pine and biscuit. Med body and oily. Taste was pine, some biscuit and a little citrus hoppyness but more pine than anything. Different and I enjoyed it. Got as single and will buy as six this summer no problem.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Can from Pioneer supermarket on Columbus, poured into a pint glass at home. Peach coloured murk with a high and undiminished cream foam. Involving aroma of pine, peach, Pimms, Cointreau-soaked ladys fingers (trifle bottoms) and mandarin cheesecake- impressively fresh hop from the can. Disappointingly sweet flavour with that hop promise bullied into submission by the soggy tinned peach, honey, menthol and throat sweet notes (Fishermans Friend, Lockets, Halls) typical of so many US DIPAs. Boring; dead, flavour absent of hop character. But wont be giving the sink any.

wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Can poured into a tulip. Orange/amber, white head. Fruity piney nose. Very bitter flavor, with biscuit, malt, resin. Bitter finish. More bitter than a DIPA should be.

Poured from the can into a pint glass a golden amber with a nice thick head. Aroma is hoptastic. Flavor is a nice balance of over the top resinous citrus hops with a nice sweetness. The finish is outstanding!! This is a go to brew for me when I am out. I know what to expect & its never less. The can always gets a nice look-see from others in the bar.

tdoyledesign (179) - Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2014
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 (290) - 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.

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.
