4.33/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz can (Best By: September 20, 2014) into a Samuel Adams specialty (i.e. short-stemmed and elongated tulip) glass. Not the freshest can, but clearly within the Best By date.

A- Pours a golden orange hue with noticiable sediment floating about. The head reached a full 1-finger of which was white and creamy. The head maintained rather well considering the elevated ABV. (4.0)

S- Although subtle, fleshy tropical fruits (peach, mango, pineapple) dominate the aroma followed by a subdued honey sweetness. No noticable piney traces can be found. (4.0)

T- A typical 1-2-3 punch...sweet malt first followed quickly by juicy tropical fruits (peach, mango, pineapple) and then a substantial grapefruit rind bitterness. Not overtly complex, but fires on all cylinders that is trademark to a DIPA. Well done. (4.5)

M- The mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation to move things along the palate. The malt backbone is perfect to support the substantial hop load and makes for an enjoyable experience. (4.5)

O- Although Resin has been in circulation much longer than Sixpoint's Hi-Res, they have very similar traits. They are both solid offerings, but will give a slight nod to Hi-Res...but being that Resin is year-round, I am more than happy to have Resin at my disposal to satiate my hop fix. (4.25)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I scored a four pack on a visit to Ohio. It pours a beautiful clear gold, with a nice high white head. The smell of pine, cirtus and pineapple hits your nose as soon as the can opens. The flavors carry over from the scents, with a sweetness on the front end and a slight bitterness on the back. For a beer that shows off it's 9.1 ABV and 103 IBU, this one is smooth and very drinakable. I should have nabbed a case!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Canned beer served in a pint glass.

Appearance -
Thick, foamy head which is long lasting. Off-white in colour. Leaves plenty of lacing. Cloudy, honey colour with suspended particles. Slow rising, small bubbles.

Smell -
Sweet, fruity, hops, pine, apricot, peaches. The aromas are strong and hit you in the face on opening.

Taste -
Bitter hops, grapefruit, dried apricots, mandarin, mint, and some caramel sweetness.
Cut grass aftertaste.
Plenty of bitterness and being high IBU, the alcohol notes are present.

Mouthfeel -
Slight prickly pop rocks fizz.
Thick, creamy body, not much froth.

Overall -
Strong aromas and lots of flavour. A thoroughly enjoying beer, and despite it's bitterness, it's refreshing and goes down easily. Plenty about it to enjoy and lots of complexity to enjoy on every sip. Hoppy and in IPA territory, but with more malty sweetness than usual.

4.31/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Purchased from the packey best by 05092015.

A: cloudy yellow with a thin ring of bubbles, that lacing hangs around forever.

S: Middle roasted malts, spicy resinous pine needles with bitter citrus. Mild peppery yeast and everything just blends well. Very well presented IPA notes.

T: Follows nose. The mild weediness, pine and citrus peek up and stay up. bitter-orangy-grapefruity finish.

M: Semi-creamy, coating well with a smooth, velvety finish. Some signficant bitter notes poke up and subside in the dry, creamy finish. It is a HUGE finish on the dry and bitter side.

O: Give me more of THIS. Between citrus, bitter, dry, and pine....this is a balance on the edge of too much. But it is not.

Sixpoint Resin is one of the best IPAs available here in Houston. Resin consistency not over bearing, hoppy up front, bitter notes at the back w/ an apricot base feel. So well rounded. Better bought fresh, recommend keeping in the pantry unless ready to drink...then fridge or ice cool and drink immediately. "Best before July 13, 2014" on this can. Still tastes fresh.
