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.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Cloudy golden orange pour with a white head. Really strong pine aroma with a moderate citrus nose. Some bread, grapefruit, and maybe some floral notes. The flavor is highly bitter. Plenty of pine and grapefruit peel. Some floral hops, sweet bread, and a touch of grass and butter.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Very clear orange/golden. Big white frothy head that lingers. Small amount of carbonation. Aroma is very hoppy and bitter. Resin and pine. Very skunky. Mouth is BITTER and hoppy. Pine and floral hops with caramel. A hop heads dream. No sweetness what so ever.

12 oz tall boy can into a pint glass. Best Before: September 11, 2013....so its pretty fresh no? A - Pours a hazy amber body with a finger of white foam. Decent amount of lacing with minimal retention. S&T - Pine, grapefruit, and sweet bubble gum. The taste is piney and very sweet with candied peaches and bitter grapefruit. Despite the high IBU its not over the top bitter. Surprisingly delicious. Mouth feel is medium bodied, slick, and oily. O - Damn, this beer really surprised me. Candied peaches and resinous piney hops. This is a stand out beer that I always overlooked.

Pyrmir (5763) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2013
Can. Golden with white head. Aroma of pine, resin, caramel and some citrus. Taste is similar ; resin, pine and caramel. Not as raw and painfully bitter as expected

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Aroma of resin, pine, with notes of citrus. Pours a cloudy amber with a lasting white head and abundant lacing. The taste is much the name - resiny. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Resin also describes the mouthfeel. Overall, very enjoyable. Not the throat ripper I was expecting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlamDuncan (15) - Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2013
The aroma is a mild, gentle citrus that fades into a surprisingly pleasant astringent piney scent. The color was a basic amber. The malts really come at you along with the hops then it all smoothes out quickly. Its a very drinkable and tasty dipa.

From can. Poured two cans into a 22 ounce pilsner (I was feeling adventurous). Aroma is almost immediately overwhelming. Strong resin (duh) and pine. Tastes of pine and lemon. However, the citrus is just underwhelming enough to balance the piney hops. Pours a golden, almost opaque amber. Surprisingly crisp and drinkable. Fair amount of head with adequate lacing. Definitely would recommend for those who like a more bitter IPA.

I was almost overwhelmed by the resin smell when I first started to pour into a Spaten Stange glass (which for me tend to make many beers taste better) altho the next one Ill try a Tulip glass. I usually like creamy but not over the top IPSa"s - for my first one this has almost TOO much of a finish .. it doesnt - goes on & on !! With some food and/or snacks it would hjold up.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap, hazy copper with an off white head. Big hop aromas with lots of pine, earthy and herbal notes. Not for beginners, big hop flavor and the abv comes through in the body of this one in a way that makes me wanna say you could cellar a bottle of this for a year or two and that would do it some good. Crisp bitter finish decent beer.
