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.

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?). There’s an average carbonation, and a medium body. Overall: Sixpoint’s 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, it’s just that good. Yet it is full of such great IPA flavor, without an intrusive hop bitterness. Sure, it’s still a bitter beer, just not overly so. If you see this one at the store, pick it up!!!

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Really difficult to find in North Dallas. I think it's the best mix of hops & malt at the 9% ABV.

Malty sweetness combined with citrus zest, pine and resins. Bitter and slightly juicy, it is medium-full bodied and low on carbonation. Sweet apricot jam, honey, medicinal plants, cough syrup. Okay.

A very solid IIPA. Piny flavors point to the title of "Resin". Balanced malt and hop flavor if a bit sweet; however, there are worse offenders. Not in-your-face in any way.

Beautiful IPA, lovely sweety and strong deep beer. Very smooth finish and despite being strong easy drinkable.

akoeninger (769) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2017
On tap at Tavernakaya. Definitely a hob bomb. Piney and juicy aroma with some malt sweetness present. Resinous flavor with some mango and sweet malt. Some alcohol burn but mostly the strength is well hidden
