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.

It pours a golden color leaving the same color body and mostly clear. There is a fair amount of carbonation which is seen rising. There is a one inch foamy white head. The lacing spider webs my chalice. The smell is hoppy and malty at the same time, piney and earthy, really nicely done. The taste is bittersweet between the malts and the hops, a spectacular taste on the tongue. It is about a medium on the palate with some slight sharpness a bit here and there on the tongue. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA that I would come back to.

Pours light amber color with large off white head. Great aroma and very hoppy taste. Great beer for hopheads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is moderately hoppy, with dank and floral notes plus some caramel and alcohol. Taste is bitter up front followed by some grassy and dank hops. Finish is pretty strong alcohol, though it does blend pretty well.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Im not sure what went wrong with this one, and Ill give it another shot, cause I really enjoy Sixpoint as a brewery and they make some decent beers. Pours a really nice golden amber with no head whatsoever. Flavor is skunky hops, funky and rich with crisp bitterness and citrus. Didnt smell amazing compared to some of their other offerings. Flavor is much much better though. Very crisp and clean with nice, heavy citrus. Medium body. 02192013 On a second try, this came out much better. From draft, pours to snifter a nice deep golden with a faint head that dissipates. Nose is super resinous, lotsa pine and grassy notes with good citrus and grapefruit. Flavors follow through nicely with a bold pine and green taste. Nice lighter body and definitely enjoyable this time.

Trade from Phatdog1 - Thanks!Bonus appearance point for the snazzy can. Pours hazy copper, with a sizey white head. Smells very piney, with hints of caramel. Taste is very hop forward, as is to be expected. Lots of pine, some subtle peppery notes, and sweet caramel. Very tasty...

Can pour...cool little skinny can! Hazy, golden; short, pillowy, ivory head. Some fairly pungent (good way), aromas of bubblegum, unripe bananna, lemon and maybe a bit of tangerine. Flavors are hoppy strong, but well balanced in bitterness. Some faint sweet malt on the entry, but all IPA on the way down. Maybe a tad sticky on the palate, but refreshing overall. A very impressive IPA. Not overwhelming, just a good, solid entry into this style. Would go great with a basket of wings.....mmmmm!

Crystal clear golden copper with a small lasting head. The aroma is sweet, toasted malt and lots of resinous, spicy, citrusy hops. The hops remind me of Summit, with strong toasted finish of Marris Otter or maybe dark munich malt. Tastes darker and toastier than it looks in any case. Very bitter and very good. Worth picking up.

Great hoppy aroma and attractive golden brown appearance with a taste that themselves more towards alcohol than hops and a decent lingering mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thank god... its great to see an unfiltered double IPA from time to time. It has a cloudy, dark/golden orange color and a foamy, billowy white head. It has an industrial/restaurant cleaner nose thats soapy and has a slight, sweet caramel aroma with some really stinky hops. It reminds me of stinky cheese... honest! The mouth feel is very soft and malty with a slight bready flavor , light sweetness, and a bold, soft hop flavor that finishes much more bitter than is detectable in the flavor. For as bitter as this is, its really soft-palated. Im surprised. I, personally prefer my double IPAs to be thinner, though. This is too creamy. Overall, Im not that impressed. It reminds me of an insecticide.
