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.

Maravilhosa e encorpada imperial AIPA. Aroma intenso, cítrico, que persiste ate o ultimo gole. Bastante lúpulo nessa breja. Paladar amargo, intenso, notas de resina, amargor pancada! 103 IBUs!!! Corpo bom. Retrogosto amargo e duradouro. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great color here, love the more amber pour than many of the doubles out there - the head here dissipates a bit more quickly, and the mouthfeel is a bit more viscous. The biggest points here come from aroma and aftertaste - love the citrus burst.

Can pours a golden amber. Nice fresh citrus hop nose. Slight floral sweetness to the hop flavor, with nice bitterness. Almost spicy finish

Pours a clear gold with a hint of amber-red, with a small white head. Smells of resin, grapefruit, pine, caramel. taste is sweet and bitter - tangerine, pink grapefruit, caramel - less bitter than its claimed 103 IBU led me to expect, balanced with a candy-sweetness. Though as I drink it, the bitterness grows relative to the sweetness.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Can:   Deep orangish straw, hazy, super huge pillowy white head, sticky lacing.   Thick pithy and resiny nose.   Sweet citrus peel and candied pith on the tongue.   Bitter, but not biting.   Decent sweet caramel malt base, balances out well with the bitterness.   Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate.   Smooth finish, lovely hop profile that isnt overly bitter.   Very fresh, vibrant, and tasty!

Resin pours a very clear, light gold color with a fluffy finger width head. Lots of tiny bubbles floating to the surface gives Resin an extremely appetizing appearance. The aroma is classic west coast hops. Full of citrus, pine and a bit of spice. In the flavor there is a fantastic mix of citrus and pine, with only a light malt backbone. Resin definitely showcases the excellent flavor and aromas of the hops. The slight spice is still present in the flavor. This is an incredibly easy to drink beer, with no hint of the 9.1% ABV. It is a little sticky (hence the resin?). Theres an average carbonation, and a medium body. Overall: Sixpoints Resin is a superb double IPA. Setting this beer apart from other double IPAs is just how easy to drink it is. If I had wanted to, I could have thrown it back in a couple long swigs, its just that good. Yet it is full of such great IPA flavor, without an intrusive hop bitterness. Sure, its still a bitter beer, just not overly so. If you see this one at the store, pick it up!!!

Nice sweet hoppy nose. Good smooth flavor with a slow cheek burn of hops. Not at all hoppy on the top of the mouth. I guess I like it. :) Maybe this Sweet Action set me up well for it. I forgot to rate it I enjoyed it so much. Sixpoint makes some mighty fine beers.

Hoppy, but not overpoweringly so. Drinkable, but not in large quantities. Alcoholic.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 This is technically a double ipa but it does not taste like one. Has a real unique taste, not very bitter as the 108 ibu would lead you to believe. I like this one a lot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
