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.

Can. Pours amber color with a white head. Nose is citrus with pine. Taste is very nice. Powerful citrus hops and some slight caramel. Bitter finish. Great beer!

Well looks like I’m going against the grain here. I so wanted to like this one and drank all 4 cans out of the pack at different times hoping each day it would be better than the prior. I was let down. Very very boozy to the point of difficulty drinking. I’m all for a high gravity offering But that shouldn’t be it’s main characteristic. No balance whatsoever and the taste was a tad "off". My first try with this brewery.

Pours an unfiltered burnt orange. Piney hop nose, big bitter hit up front, bready malt balances it out nicely. Meduim bodied mouth feel. Good stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: massive hops, floral, hay, sweet prunes, molasses. Appearance: dark hazy gold, big creamy white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: sweets are coming up, flowers, fruits, yet bitters persist in the long finish. Overall: decent IIPA, but was hoping for a bit more complexity. Can from Drinks of the World Zurich HB, Switzerland.

Svesse (8682) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 10 March 2014) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, caramel, toffee and apricots. Malty, hoppy taste with grapefruit, orange peel, caramel, resin, pine needles and an impressive piney, citric bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Impressive and fresh hop character, all backed up by a solid malt backbone. Lovely beer!

If you crave hops then Six Point Resin is the brew for you. It opens with a sweet malted taste then erupts with a potent burst of hops on the finish. I love the long-lasting after taste that captivates the palette. Mouth-watering scents of citrus, malts, pine, resin, caramel and apricot permeate throughout. Six Point Resin is a full-bodied bomb squeezed into a sleek and slender 12 oz. can that is oh so drinkable. Pour into a pint glass to reveal the stunning bronze tinge and dramatic frothy head or guzzle from the can, either way produces a satisfying experience.

Pretty much a generic, tasty IPA. Nose a bit alcoholic. Flavors of resin, grapefruit, mildly sweet, nice bitterness in the finish that doesn’t overwhelm. Could certainly be a lot worse.

BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 6, 2014
Poured form can. Cloudy, light amber in glass. Tons of fresh cut pine, backed by grapefruit, on nose. Whispers of biscuit malts. Rather inviting. The best smelling offering from Sixpoint sampled to date. Taste is pine and tropical fruits in large helpings. Astringent, but not too much so. A nice back and forth between bitter and sweet. High ABV hid well. Mildly oily mouthfeel. Well done.

Not as good as I was expecting from some reviews. Better than average dipa, like the reliance on piney hops which I think is better suited for a bigger IPA than the straight citrus approach. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aletcm (164) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 4, 2014
Laranja escuro turva. Espuma de pouca formação. Aroma cítrico, caramelo e especiarias. No sabor, amargor proeminente, no início cítrico, seguinte um bom favor, com final seco e persistente. Muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
