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.

Very, very nice DIPA, and which is the ultimate in truth in advertising. Surprisingly pale pour. Flavor is hoppy bitter, with a balanced resin-forward profile per its name. I've had more resiny IPAs (El Toro), but this one is by far the most balanced in bringing that aspect to the forefront while still remaining eminently quaffable. Recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (17944) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Can at Max Burger, Longmeadow, 18/05/13. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head which clears to a film. Good lacing ensues. Nose is caramel, hops, pine, grass, bitter tropical fruit notes, grapefruit. Taste is caramel malt forward, bitter hops, tropical fruits, light pine. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. OK DIPA but far from top draw.

thebsmitty (138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Canned. Pours bold golden color with medium head and medium lacing. Smells of pine, floral, tangerine. Bold hop profile but not overpowering tasting like pine, citrus, and balanced malt background for in a sweet and hoppy ending. Great stuff.

Great fresh hop taste in an IPA. Beautiful reddish-orange hue, and at 8.99 a 4-pack it'a pretty much a steal ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Golden in color with a slight bit of chill haze and with sticky lacing around the glass. Resinous and catty pungent aroma. Medium-bodied, slick, and very drinkable with a lingering finish. Good malt backbone but not overly sweet. Lots of hop flavor and finishing bitterness which is assertive but not overly astringent. This is a well-balanced IIPA and tasty!

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2013
From the skinny can right after an Anti-Hero. Pours golden orange and clear with a fluffy two finger head. Big earthy pine and grass aroma and interestingly something that smells almost oaky. Big slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Pine bitter dominates but fades into some sweet malt and then back to a very dry bitter pine finish. The malt profile really balances this nicely while letting the hops shine. Very good and accessible DIPA now that we have it in Gainesville...and I can convince people its just an energy drink from the can ;-)

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
5/21/13. 12oz can from Grassroots. Barely hazy amber pour with a fluffy khaki head that cuts but laces really well. Soapy, floral hop aromatics with touches of mineral aspects and light caramel. Bitter hop kick in the flavor, more of the malt backbone coming through, more floral and pine aspects, and lingering dryness. Not bad!

bartlebier (3632) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2013
12oz can, thanks Allen! Label indicates a rather austere 103IBU and 9,1ABV, but this turned out to be a very well-balanced DIPA that got smoother and tastier as it warmed. Pours a gorgeous creamy milky-peach orange with stable white head. Pine onslaught of probably mainly Columbus hops, well kept in check by almost chewable caramel malts. Some alcohol briefly shining through. Smooth, bold, delicious, with a mighty wallop.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours deep orange hazy and has a two finger head of of off white foam that fell fairly fast but left nice thick lace. Nose is great. Piney hops, lots of resins, tangerine and grapefruit. As a point of interest -the tangerine in this beer literally fills up your mouth like a real tangerine. Its is the most accurate tasting of a specific fruit in a beer that I have ever noticed. Good citrus with a sugary and pungent nose. Taste is breaddy with a honey sweetness. Woody grassy hops play off the ripe fruit and the citrus lends a slight pucker. Silky malt that has plenty of caramel and brown sugar. Finishes nice and bitter with a bit of grapefruit, a bit of alcohol warmth and plenty of oils to coat the palate; but they dont disturb the palate. Its a little chewy in the finish with strong tea like qualities and toasted malt flavor. Grand.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Can. Darker gold with a frothy beige head. Strong hops aromas but they are more carmely than piney. Smooth and creamy with a more mellow and citrus flavors. I usually like being bowled over with bitter hops but this is a great change of pace. Neat DIPA.
