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.

rymould (7) - Three Bridges, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2013
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?). Theres an average carbonation, and a medium body. Overall: Sixpoints 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, its just that good. Yet it is full of such great IPA flavor, without an intrusive hop bitterness. Sure, its still a bitter beer, just not overly so. If you see this one at the store, pick it up!!!

Lovely dry hopped finish, sadly not too much else going on flavour wise, but still not a bad tipple. Packs a punch at 9.1%, you know youve had it!

16-APR-2017, can @Kregme Boxen. Golden with a low White head. Aroma is very hoppy with citrus and flowers. Taste the same. Sweet and malty but no caramel malt - more like bisquit and fruit. Ahm! I like it:-)
