12oz can poured into a DFH tulip shaped pint glass. Best by Aug 10 2013

Pours a dark copper color with a large, lasting white head. The aroma is a good citrusy, hoppy smell. Not too strong and not too weak. The taste of the beer is... odd. Not exactly what i was expecting. Not a hop bomb by any stretch of the imagination. Bitter up front but theres something unique about the bitterness that is hard to place. its got sort of a sweet kick to it, i suppose. Not sure how i like this honestly. Good feel, Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall this beer is extremely unique in its flavor. Cant say its my favorite, but its definitely worth a try.

I heard so much love for this one and then was surprised to see it finally distributed near me out of nowhere one day. Tried it with my beer nerd friends as the star of a party. It was pretty but none of us liked it. The name of the beer certainly doesn't lie, but we all felt it focused solely on a bitter spike to the mouth at the expense of anything else, with a not-great flavor to boot. And I like my strong IPAs these days. Won't be getting this one again.

I really like this beer. I waited until I'd had a few four packs over the last few weeks to review it, but I've now decided it's one of my week-in-week-out beers. Beautifully balanced with just enough malt sweetness to balance the beautiful citrusy hops with a nice little bite of bitterness at the end. This is not an over the top beer, but one that has found the most important quality- wanting to go back to it again and again.

A: This can of Resin has been cellared for a year, pouring a beautiful hazy orange with a thick, creamy white head. Little chunks of yeast are suspended in the liquid.

S: Aromas of bitter orange, lemon, lime, biscuits, pine, and grapefruit are very heavy on the nose.

T: Notes of bitter orange, lemon, lime, kumquat, and grapefruit are quickly joined by flavors of spruce, pine, fresh herbs, caramel, and biscuits. The finish is bitter, intense, and resinous with monstrous citrus and pine flavors.

M: Full in body, but smooth, creamy, and silky. Carbonation is gentle. Alcohol presence is restrained. Almost too easy to drink for a DIPA.

O: This is an excellent DIPA. Having had this ale fresh and cellared, I can say that it definitely improves with age. Just a fantastic beer overall. Sixpoint continues to impress me.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a TBBC pint glass.

A: Deep gold, just mild haziness, with over a finger's worth of creamy off-white head. Good visible carbonation and head retention.

S: Resinous pine, dank, and moist grass hops dominate the biscuit bready malt backbone.

T: Sticky pine hops, chewy bready malt, then citrus rind, dank hops, and just hints of caramel. The bitterness increases as you near the swallow. Sticky bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium body and low alcohol presence for style. Average carbonation sensation.

O: This was a pretty well-executed DIPA that I'll be glad to have around in cans. It doesn't have the fruitier hop flavors that are my preference, but that's a minor quibble. My biggest complaint is that the aroma amount leaves something to be desired. Perhaps a bit more dry hopping would improve the situation.

12oz can from Delock's Discount Liquors (Munster, IN). 9.99/ 4 pack. Best by 9/1/13 (canned 3/1?). Served in a Terrapin goblet.

Pours hazy deep orange amber with a finger and a half of pale head. Retains an eighth finger of head that laces all the way down.

Smells of piney, floral, earthy hops. A bit of citrus zest and some cracker.

Bright bitter pine hits first with currents of fresh cut grass, pepper, lemon peel, floral notes, earthy and a hint of that malty cracker. Very little apparent booze.

Oily slick, medium bidy with a good bit of carbonation. Bitter finish.

Not bad at all. Not sure if it's because it's a couple months old but the hops seem more all out bitter rather than flvorful or aromatic. I may try it again if I see it on tap but I think this 4 pack will pretty much be enough for me.
