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.

pours golden amber with medium white head and some decent lacing. nose is all pine and citrus hoppiness. flavor is no surpise - serious spruce and citrus (mainly orange) hops, although not overwhelming. there’s definitely a somewhat sweet, malty presence, which helps add balance. finishes with more orange notes along with creamy malt, as well as a hint of bitterness. medium texture; not all that thick, but definitely quite sticky.

(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.

PapaVillum (950) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2017
Ravfarvet og lettere diset Imperial IPA med lille flygtig offwhite skumkrone på 1/2 cm. Svinder til kant og overflade. Sødlig, lettere maltet, aroma henad frugtmarmelade med tropiske frugter. Smagen er indledningsvis lettere sødlig, men bliver ganske hurtigt invaderet af en kraftig humlebitterhed, som skydes helt op i det beske område i smagsafslutningen. Noter af appelsin, harpiks, gran og lidt sprittet. Man bemærker den bløde mundfølelse i en næsten cremet konsistens, dog mest olieret. Karboneringen er et niveau under medium, og kroppen er solid fyldig. Overall: Ganske velsmagende og kraftig bitter DIPA. 40 cl på fad, 9.1 % ABV, nydt på Kompasset på Østerbro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at New Seasons in Beaverton, OR. Beautiful hazy orange pour with a one-finger white head. Lovely clear aroma of fruits and resin. Flavor is nicely matched to aroma, but overpowered by an intense booziness. Medium oily mouthfeel and nice bitterness. I would love this if it weren’t so hot.

This is a fine, drinkable DIPA that lives up its namesake. The aroma is dank and resinous, oozing hop nastiness, and the appearance is a nice, slightly cloudy yellow haze. The taste is sharp, slightly bitter hops with a lingering splooge of Blaisian smoke bombs. It hides it’s 9.1%abv well, goes down like more of a 7%er. Good for banging some Carly Rae Jepsen on repeat while lamenting the lack of good Carly Rae Jepsen t-shirt options for sale online. Maybe we need to make our own?
