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.

mcberko (15013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
355mL bottle, sent from CooperEllis (thanks John), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite resinous, with loads of candied sugar and butterscotch. Flavour is very resinous hop-heavy, orange rind, candied sugar, and caramel malt, though quite dry. Dry orange rind and a pleasant resinous hop astringency linger. Very solid IIPA.

Pailhead (6495) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Can: The aroma consists of heavy citrus with lots of orange and apricot along with some sweet fruit, alcohol, pine, and lighter grapefruit. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze and a small off-white orange tinged head that quickly fades to a thin film. Theres some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sweet citrus, tropical fruits, and a hint of caramel. The finish has grapefruit, pine, and a touch of lemon. Its medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, its very tasty and drinkable...and it goes down way to easy for 9.1%.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
12oz. Can. One caveat on this rating is that I dont know how old the beer was. Pours a dark honey color with a thin white foam. Not much going on in the aroma for a supposed hop bomb, some biscuit, pine and grass notes. Flavor is big on hops with lots of pine resin and a big bitter bite. This one is also very malty which keeps the bitterness in check. Some notes of biscuit and fresh baked bread. Palate is ridiculously syrupy and feels like someone has smeared honey on your teeth. Just too much for my taste. Finishes with some lingering bitterness. Would like to compare this with one that I know for sure is fresh since my guess is that this one was a bit past its prime.
