Type: 12oz. slim can
Vintage: 2013, best by July 9th, 2013
Glass: Heady Stemless (Why not?)
Pours a hazy golden in color w/ a 1/2 finger white head that left light sticky lacing. Aromas of pine, mango, and fresh cut PVC pipe resin. The flavor started w/ caramel malt sweetness up front, leading into a touch of mango, and finishes with moderate resinous bitterness. Medium bodied and somewhat lush, but needs more carbonation and guessing this was mashed in at around 152 degrees and maybe could have been mashed a bit higher to create a little fuller body. However, additional carbonation might be the only remedy needed. Pretty drinkable stuff.
Overall, good solid DIPA, but nothing mind blowing or really all that unique. I would drink this again without hesitation, but I would prefer more enhanced citrus notes and a slightly better mouth feel. In the end, good beer though from Sixpoint.

I really like the head on this beer... Great retention, but larger bubbles than I'm used to seeing from IPAs; but the lacing is fairly poor. The aroma is very floral and super hoppy but with a candy-like sweetness behind. The taste is great for the style, but this isn't my IPA. Too much of piney/resinous hop character. I admit that it is well balanced and has the great hop forwardness people enjoy in DIPAs; however, I just can't get into this beer. I find this beer a tad thin for a DIPA too. I do enjoy the hop bite on my tongue. I'll definitely suggest this beer for people who like more pine or resin or earth in their IPAS.

Resin is a fantastic looking DIPA. Huge head, hazy orange body with visible carbonation, it's what I want to see when I pop open a double IPA. The aroma is big and sweet, with sweet tropical hops and sweet caramel malts. The taste isn't quite as sweet as the nose, with some more hop bitterness kicking its way through. It's a balanced bitterness, as the bitter and sweet aspects from the hops are kinda in a tug-of-war the whole time. The mouthfeel is on the heavy side and moderately carbonated, and the drinkability is great. Overall, Sixpoint Resin is a great DIPA.
