look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz. Green Can. Freshness date on bottom.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a large fluffy white head. Good retention
and nice sticky lacing.

S: Pine, citric notes of lemon and grapefruit, sweeter as it warms.

T/M: Sticky hops, pine, grapefruit, other citric. bitter, alcohol, enough
malts to bring back the bitterness. fairly full bodied and smooth. More
of that alcohol feel. Slightly sweet. Big finish as it stays hopy and bitter
with the inclusion of some sweetness.

O: Well this DIPA is big and quit enjoyable to sip on. The straight forward
piny citric hops are great. The warming sweetness is a plus while the alcohol
can sneak up on you. A very good beer by Sixpoint.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a snifter. Pours a deep hazy orange with a 2 finger head, slight lacing. Smells of pink grapefruit and pine. The nose is fantastic.

This beer is so good. Opens with big pink grapefruit, bitterness is held in check by the malt backbone. This one never gets sweet, the hop remains forward throughout. Finish is just like the start, big, boozy, hop forward. I love it.

Carbonation is spot on. Mouthfeel is bubbly, never sticky. Overall this may be my favorite go to DIPA. For the price it really doesn't get better than this for me. This beer made me repent of my not liking can beers. Thank you Six Point, you just keep doin what you're doin there guy.

Sixpoint Resin Double IPA served in a pint glass.

Appearance - A beautiful peaking white head atop a gleaming orange-amber hue..almost caramel in color. A very nice looking beer. As you drink webbed lacing cascades down the glass.

Smell - This brew didn't have the nose and aroma I expect of a DIPA like this. It still has an herbal sappy aroma that was nice, while I desire much more here.

Taste - This is the part of this DIPA that really blew me away, the outrageous hop flavor that explodes in my mouth as I sip this beauty. The name of this brew, resin, really fits the hoppy mouth watering flavor here.

Mouthfeel - The resin also supports the mouthfeel on this one. An almost sticky body the envelopes your entire mouth. A lingering bed of hop flavor once again.

Overall I would say this is one of my favorite beers, being a big IPA fan. I also like the price on the Resin. 8.99 for a 4-pack of 12 oz cans. 9.1 abv

12 oz tall can, poured into glass. Golden, and mostly clear. Thick beady head quickly dissipated. Sweet piney aroma with hints of malt and alcohol. A burst of bitterness up front, followed by piney hops, leaving warming alcohol and a bit of toasted. The alcohol is more prominent as the beer warms, which adds to the beers complexness. A very good imperial ipa- not just a overload of hops, the malt characteristics pair well with the piney hops.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Off-white head, moderate to low retention, on a copper body with some haziness. Lacing is clear and quick to slide away. Aroma includes peach and persimmon with some apricot and some malt sweetness in the background. Taste includes some caramel sweetness and some hop bitterness but far from the amount expected, given the name and style. I actually checked the date of the keg to make sure it was fresh and it is from 12/2012. No issues there. My nose and palate seem to be working correctly, so I suppose that the beer is just a bit lacking in the "resin" department. Kind of disappointing on almost every level.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Beautiful Amber color with a thick and fluffy head with good retention.
Delicious tropical aroma with resin, hints of grapefruit, passion fruit, peaches, pineapple, simply a fruit salad.
Very fruity and intense taste, but also strong on the malt with a resiny, piney, citric hoppy kick.
Aftertaste is quite dry and bitter, resiny, lingering mostly the piney hops.
Full body with good carbonation with tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 9.1% was a master of disguise here.
I had it before, but never had the opportunity to rate it, and even without the first surprise it felt even better. Excellent beer making extremes to balance. Not a beer for the ones who like Adjunct lagers with low mediocre hops that needs to be drunk stupidly cold not to feel the taste (or off-tastes) of it.
