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.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, - 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. Its actually rarely well balanced, and not like eating hops who.e.

Antzrhere (102) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Can, weatherspoons. Pours hazy amber wity white head that actually lasts. Aroma of resinous hop cone. Taste is resinous (!), citrus grapefruit, slightly earthy and spicy with a toasty malt backbone. Strong lingering biterness. Clean, refreshing and delicious at 9.1%

Having one for breakfast, and cant believe I havent rated this after consuming cases of it. Clear honey in the glass. Big white head. Nose is appropriately described, resin. Palate is straight hop cone juice, honey, nice grain. Overall one of my favorite fallback doubles that I can count on. Yum.

Vells (1631) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - DEC 10, 2016
Quite impressive. Pleasant maltiness, caramel, intense pine, resiny kick, some floral aspect. Light sweetness with intense bitterness, but very well balanced. Dry finish. Like it

Packs a hell of a punch. Strong, aromatic beer. 1 or 2 will probably be enough unless you enjoy hangovers.

Madsen1635 (700) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2016
Can. Clear golden pour with tan head. Aroma is sweet and balanced with some sticky resin underneath. Taste has instant bitter notes and is not very balanced. Strong and tickling on the tongue but not a massive pleaser. Heavy body. Medium carbonation

kchampagne (164) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Poured from the can with an amber color and a thick fluffy head that sticks to the glass. Good lacing. Aroma is loaded with pine and floral hops. Lots of bitter notes. Taste follows the aroma with a good balance between hops and malty sweetness. Great go-to beer.

flying_pig (1443) - SCOTLAND - DEC 1, 2016
355ml Can from The Sanderling, Glasgow Airport (5.25):
Solid stuff from Sixpoint here, this one was a hop bomb with tonnes of pine & grapefruit bitterness in the early going before some tropical fruits & citrus flavours started to come through & level things out slightly. The alcohol was well hidden & only really made an appearance right at the end alongside some of the sweet malts & caramel that also helped with the balance of the beer. It was a relatively easy one to drink despite its strength & the only slight negative was that the nose could have perhaps been a little more pronounced but overall it was an excellent beer with a lot of flavour & its definitely one Ill try again at some point.

HuskerTan (1809) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Can. A- Dank, grass, pine. A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head. T- Extreme bitterness, pine, subtle caramel, grass, dank. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, very bitter finish. O- I wanted to like this one but did not in the slightest, however, I really appreciated it. This is a huge beer. Very bitter while still maintaining flavor and keeping the alcohol very well hidden. Maybe my favorite part of this beer was the can. Hopheads will go nuts over this, me on the other hand, at least appreciates it for what it is.

Can. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and pine aroma with light sweet malt. Pine and grapefruit flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and resin lingers with grapefruit.
