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.

Canned (backlog). Orangeish amber colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is resin, some tropical fruitiness, sweet malts and also some bready notes. Flavour is very similar with a slight sting of alcohol sweetness as well. Nice bitter finish. Not overdoing the hoppiness, which makes this a quite nice and fresh DIPA.

Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Can shared at Sander’s, NYC during an evening during which we drank far, far too much beer. Pours clear gold with a light, foamy head. Nose of pee, alcohol and pine. Medium to big sweet flavor with lots of alcohol, pine, sugar, light toasty pale malts, lime. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish with moderate resinous pine, mild grapefruit. It’s slightly harsh, to be honest, with a strong alcohol edge. So so overall. I’ll try this one again to see if it fares better, given that many people seem to have enjoyed it.
