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.

Dse: Flotgullet diset l medet stort flot skumhoved. Fantastisk duft af mango og en tand citrus. Smagen er igen lige i skabet. I det hele taget en stor overraskelse at llen er s god efter en tur over atlanten.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bought at The Beer Temple in Chicago, IL. $9 four pack. Drink by December 17th 2013 ... Id assume that this is pretty fresh, since thats over 5 months away. I just poured this one into a standard pint. Appearance: A slightly hazy yellow-orange color. Two finger off-white head stays for awhile before turning into just a thin layer on top. The lacings pretty patchy, but I really enjoy that mini-head that floats on top. Smell: Super sweet aroma thats easily the highlight of this beer. Resins an appropriate name ... the resinous sort of piney hops are definitely the highlight mixed with almost a cotton candy sweetness. There may be some of the ever-popular non-descript tropical fruit aromas as well. Taste/feel: Like a guava or mango sort of flavor almost all the way with a lot of sweetness at the start. At the middle and back of the mouth, this explodes with the resin/pine character, and theres a solid bitterness. While theres a pretty big herbal kind of bitterness (103 IBUs), Resin seems to get less bitter with the more I sip it. The mouthfeel is pretty lightly carbonated with a medium/light sort of feel. I dont mind the feel, since this could easily be cloying if it were much thicker, but Id like a bit more carbonation, maybe. Burps (yes, Im factoring in burps) are just an awesome piney/earthy flavor. As the beer warms up, I get a pretty distinct caramel or toffee sort of note in the aftertaste. Very good beer. I feel like it drinks a little flat, but thats a pretty minor problem I have with a beer thats pretty outstanding as a whole. It has a nice look to it, theres a great sweet piney aroma, and it tastes better than a lot of other IIPAs Ive had. If this were available in Michigan, Id get it pretty often.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2013
A real ropey, pinetree dank hop aroma. Darker orange, like a barleywine in overall look. Bitter blast of hops as the name indicates, maltier than expected. Full body pallet ripper. Highly recommended.

pablo951 (663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Has it out of a can. Pours a frothy white head with a hazy orange hue. it has a subtly yet firm and ever-present resiny pine aroma, and a smooth hop taste.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz can. Poured a hazy golden honeycomb color with a two finger white head. Aroma of dense pine, herbal and earthy hop notes, some grapefruit and citrus as well, slight caramel malt in the background. Flavor has lots of pine, citrus, and high bitterness but the caramel malt comes in at the end to balance it out, but the deep hop flavors dominate, with a slight hint of alcohol. Medium bodied, minimal carbonation, smooth and slick.

JFGrind (2035) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Straight on one dimensional alcohol delivery vehicle, this 2XIPA has a hazy golden medium body with green hop and grainy alcohol sweetness. Resin is strong and bitter packaged in a slim can.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Not a well balanced Ipa but its still great. Deadly amount of alcohol and even deadly amount of hops. If you like hardcore ipas...then this is your beer.

ausomeawestin (151) - Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Pours a brownish orange with average soapy white head and some lacing. aroma is sublte as is common with doubles but notes of hay. tastes buttery, with grainy and nutty malt tones, paired with tangy bitterness. palate is average, a medium body. overall, a solid imperial. its less sweet than your average imperial, but does have its malt

(can) orange gold with white head. Pine hops aroma. Flavor is pine hops, some malt. OK IIPA but not very complex.

Bov (12556) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 12, 2013
from Bier-Bienne; canned - hazy reddish-orange beer with a chaotic yet persistent foam; solid fruity hoppiness of bitter oranges, peaches and pine needles; full-bodied; some fair malt sweetness, very tasty and with a robust bitterness; earthy and pretty dry; long fruity (raisins and apples) hoppy finish with a lingering bitterness - very nice one
