COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and we’re ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isn’t a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going ’round this winter. It isn’t our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. It’s 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.

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... it’s 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 that’s 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, it’s really soft-palated. I’m surprised. I, personally prefer my double IPAs to be thinner, though. This is too creamy. Overall, I’m not that impressed. It reminds me of an insecticide.

Slim can, 12 0Z: Orange-amber with a frothy, light tan head. Scent is piney hops...pine...needles..malt. Taste is a softly increasing floral hop bitter over light citrus. Slightly creamy, sweet malt. Quite good...actually very smooth and balanced given it’s IBU/ABV numbers.

Hammy78 (975) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
Can picked up at Consumers Beverages in Niagara Falls New York. Pours a little cloudy copper colour with a pure white head and piles of lace. Smells quite obviously of sweet piney hops. Carmalized malt as well. Tastes bitter, but not like I thought it would. Pine hops that stays with you but not like the typical high IBU beers. It’s actually rarely well balanced, and not like eating hops who.e.

Green can from a local store. Citrus and floral aroma. Yellowish orange with a white bubbly head that sticks around. Very hoppy. Very bitter. Good ABV and well hidden. I would say this beer is a slightly dulled down version of a Stone IPA. Pretty good.

Aroma: soft floral tones, citrus fruit, peach. Appearance: clear golden orange. Taste: initial dry fruity flavors, fresh hop bitterness, malty undertones. Palate: fresh, lively carbonation, balanced hop and pale malt flavors, some boozy sensation in the finish.

3.6
Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Can from Mom’s Liquor Cabinet. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is sappy, fruit, and almost peppery. Taste is thick, sticky, citrus, and plenty of... resin... Nicely hidden alcohol.
