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.

A great dipa! poured from a growler. Head is about 1-2 fingers that slowly builds up after a pour, bubbles are fairly spread apart but nice carbonation and lacing. Smell is citrussy with a good malt backbone. Taste is citrussy with a hop resinous mouth. Not to biteror grapefruit pith taste. Bitterness lingers but not over the top. Strong but not boozy. Definitely a repeat buy.

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

Can @ Crown Rivers JDW Heathrow T5. Light orange amber, good head. Resin malt aroma. Dry cereal boiled sweet flavour. Bitter aftertaste. This does not feel like 9.1%. Another good selection By JDW.

(Keg at Sori Taproom, 20170725) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, resin and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, resin, caramel, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had resin, malts and bitterness. A hoppy brew dominated by resin but still balanced. Well done.
