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.

Can. Pours a coppery orange with a medium sized off white head that leaves some rings of lacing. Nose has some dank hops, spice, and pineapple sweetness. Taste is moderately bitter and a little less sweet. Flavor is resinous with spice, light tropical fruit and a bit of caramel. Underneath is a surprising amount of toasted bready malt that comes through until the bitterness reasserts itself in the finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Good but not overly flavorful.

From a Red Bull shaped 355ml can at RBAG 2013. Golden and clear in the glass. Orange peels in the nose. Pretty clean taste with some orange peels and a bit of alcohol and a bit of spiciness. Medium bitterness. Drinks well for its abv. Overall a bit lighter than I was hoping for, I liked this, but wanted to love it.

Bottle - Orange and resin. Clear gold with a thin head. Resinous and a bit of spice and bitterness that lingers. Simple and decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can on the Black Country Train Tasting Part I. The pours deep gold with a small head. The nose is strong resinous pine. Pineapple, mango. Cake batter. The taste is somewhat boozy, slick. More pineapple. Plenty of pinecone. Strong bitterness on the finish. Full body, drinks the full ABV. Overall, OK.

Bottle. Unfiltered ipa with medium foam appearance. Smells really fresh hops. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Nice caramel, bitter, hop finish. Some alcohol at the very end. Overall: starts great with nice hop aroma, but a little to boozy and bitter in the very end.
