An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

Poured a two finger off white head into a snifter. Crystal clear amber color with great lacing.  Pine and grapefruit were very pronounced from smell to taste. Considering the 103 IBU'S and 9.1 ABV, I found Sixpoint Resin very drinkable and not to boozie, a good quality DIPA.

Can dated BB 09AUG2015 poured into IPA glass

Appearance: Amazing clarity, golden orange hue, one finger head that dissipates into an oily slick on top with some moderate lacing on the first sips. 4.25/5

Smell: Fresh hops jump out of the can. Pour it out and a touch of alcohol is present. Citrus, pine, herbal. Smells like a great IPA, whats not to love? 4.5/5

Taste: Hits hard. Big hops, grapefruit peel, orange, pine, lemon, alcohol comes out in the taste a bit more as it warms. Sadly tastes overly bitter, lacking a bit of balance that the Hi-Res has. Nice sweet/citrus acidity in the aftertaste once my mouth can process the bitterness. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: Crisp. Dare I say, resinous? Med/High Carb. Still hard to get past the bitterness 3.5/5

Overall: So promising. Great nose, great flavors, just needs a bit more balance IMO. Strangely, more alcohol/bitterness than Hi-Res. Still, a top notch beer. Very good west coast style DIPA. 4/5

Great for an IPA. I'm really into the more bitter IPA's w the citrus taste and delicious bitter after taste to take away from having to take a sip every 5 seconds. If you enjoy imperials definitely give Resin a try. First try from Six Point but mos def On Point! Enjoy!

Beatiful orange beer with a white head that dissapears fast.

Nose: Tropical fruits, orange, peach, peach, pine and citrus.
Taste: Grapefruit, citrus, resin and spice.
A full body. A little oily taste. Great!
