Sixpoint Resin is a clear, golden ale covered in a soft, thick, yellowed foam that leaves intricate lacing on the glass. It has a strong, fresh aroma of grapefruit and lumber. It smells almost a touch sour-- "nose tart". It's very full and soft in the mouth and it leaves the tongue a little singed. It's bursting with fresh hop flavor and quite bitter. Grapefruit peel bitterness becomes wooden and, finally, resiny at the finish and throughout the aftertaste, where it picks up some juniper and black pepper. The whole affair is pretty dry. I really love a beer like this. It's strong and heavy enough to support all those hops and the malt never creates any conflict.

Bought 4 pack 12oz Red Bull style cans. $9.99 for the 4pk. Love the can idea, really neat marketing concept.

Pours Light with a very white head. and lots of lacing.

Smell is citrus like a D-ipa typically is.

Mouth feel is slightly sticky.

Taste is again, typical D-ipa and true to style. Citrus, grapefruit, grassy with a noticeable alcohol aroma on the finish.

Overall this beer is a solid representation of what I feel that a D-ipa should be. The strong but not really bitter citrus, the stickiness with plenty of lacing on the glass and a high alcohol content. I put it in the top 4 of my personal favorite D-ipa's

Nice dark amber liquid, caramel color, good carbonation and head on it. Aroma, more caramel, a little bit hoppy, not too much in terms of aromatics.

Taste, remarkably similar to Bigfoot with a year or two on it. Hop edge and bitterness are down, hop flavors of pine and citrus are evident though. Pretty viscous. Really should be discussed as a barleywine in my opinion, but at the same time, despite what the majority thinks, its just a matter of degree and subtle differences between some dipas and barleywines. Relatively easy to drink for a 9% beer. I like the unique can shape and size, its like you're holding an energy drnk. Really makes for good sneaking into college football games, security just thinks you are drinking some rare -bal red bull or something. I guess the resiny aspect might be because of the beer's stickiness and viscosity moreso than it being dank.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured a clear amber color with ok carbonation leaving a one finger off white head which fades leaving a small amount of bubbles and minimal lacing

S: Big pine needle and resinous hops are right up front with a pinch of orange peel

T: Piney and resinous hops, a good dose of hop oils, some lingering orange peel but there is a potent malt bill that makes it a little sweeter. The finish is a bit sticky, slick and sweet with a nice bittering finish

M: Medium bodied. Sticky sweet, fuller mouthfeel.

O: An IPA that lives up to it's name. Balanced.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Duvel tulip. Best by 05Apr2013 on bottom of can. Single purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA) for $2.99.

A: Slightly hazy golden amber with soft, foamy off-white 1-finger head with decent retention and good lacing.

S: Aroma is subdued and mainly pine and herbal hops aromas with light malt sweetness mixed with breadiness.

T: This beer is aptly named, as pine resin and bitterness carry this brew. There are herbal and earthy hops tones as well. This is an East Coast DIPA all the way. The maltiness is not sweet at all and provides body with only some mild bready, slightly doughy components.

M: The feel is oily along with the flavor, with good slickness and even, low-medium carbonation. I wish this beer had a slightly bigger body, but it is very drinkable, a little bit dangerous in this category.

O: Not a bad beer and my second favorite Sixpoint beer after The Crisp lager. THis beer is straightforward resiny hops, but it does a good job of delivering the goods if that's what you're looking for.

12oz can
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is a hazy amber with golden highlights. I got three of four inches of rocky, off white head.

S - I get a snoot full of citrus, but the is some bready malt in there, too.

T - I taste a lot more pine and bitterness. I get a little citrus and a healthy dose of malt.

M - Moderate

O - It seemed more bitter at first, but the bitterness waned. I got a feeling this could be old.
