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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Deep gold with reddish tint and a brownish/dirty head that is sticky
Smell: Caramel malt with alcohol in the background. Not a whole lot citrus and pine, mostly sweet sugar... you can sense that it will be a sticky beer
Taste: Sweet, caramel, sugary, malty, hoppy but not really as much as I would have thought. Compared to other DIPAs its more sweet, creamy and sticky.. good taste, ok mouthfeel with less than average carbonation but alcohol well hidden

Overall: Hard to find anything spectacular in this beer. Its good, I would buy it again but wouldn't seek it out aggressively

Pours deep orange hazy and has a two finger head of of off white foam that fell fairly fast but left nice thick lace. Nose is great. Piney hops, lots of resins, tangerine and grapefruit. As a point of interest -the tangerine in this beer literally fills up your mouth like a real tangerine. It’s is the most accurate tasting of a specific fruit in a beer that I have ever noticed. Good citrus with a sugary and pungent nose. Taste is breaddy with a honey sweetness. Woody grassy hops play off the ripe fruit and the citrus lends a slight pucker. Silky malt that has plenty of caramel and brown sugar. Finishes nice and bitter with a bit of grapefruit, a bit of alcohol warmth and plenty of oils to coat the palate; but they don’t disturb the palate. It’s a little chewy in the finish with strong tea like qualities and toasted malt flavor. Grand.
