Best before: 03MAR2013

A: Cloudy golden-orange with a big, fluffy, frothy white head that hangs around for a while. Sticky lace down the glass but little head retention.

S: Fruity, earthy hops, slightly roasted malt, and a complementing alcohol presence.

T: Just what a Double IPA should be...full of fresh, resiny, American hops, plenty of roasted malt to balance it out, and a slight presence of alcohol in the finish. Some nutty, malty flavors pair with fruity, piney hops to give a very pleasant experience.

M: Alcohol shows itself a bit more as the beer warms. Great malty flavor in the finish. A creamy, very easy-drinking beer for the style.

O: "Resin" is a great name for this brew. A very good Double IPA that I will most certainly drink again if the opportunity arises. Awesome, green, skinny, tall 12-ounce can. Hits the mark on every aspect. Well done, Sixpoint!

4.48/5  rDev +10.1%

Best before 3/3/13 stamp on bottom of can.

A. Deep golden orange with traces of amber

S. Very floral and pleasing to this hop head. Smells like 103 IBUS to me...

T. Very hoppy, and enjoyable with a light almost citrus like flavor about it.

M. Very dry and bitter as an Imperial IPA should have. The 9.1 ABV and 103 IBU's are very evident.

O. Overall, a very enjoyable beer for die-hard hop heads. The relatively low price and availablity makes it a good choice when the harder to find Heady Toppers or Ghandi Bots might not be available.

4.05/5  rDev -0.5%

Best by 3 March 2013, which seems pretty optimistic.

A - Pours a slightly hazed burnt orange with three fingers of craggy off-white head. Head has nice retention and leaves a nice amount of lacing.

S - Pine and lots of citrus, with orange pulp and zest.

T - Nice resiny (hey, I get it) hop taste up front, with lots of pine and pretty good citrus as well. Caramel malt with some bread as well. Grassy aftertaste. A little maltier than I was expecting from the nose. Some noticeable alcohol, but not detrimental. Nice lingering bitterness.

M - Medium mouthfeel with a nice dry bitterness throughout. Nice amount of carbonation makes it a bit silky.

O - Very solid if unspectacular DIPA. A little less malt would be welcome, but the bitter aftertaste is very nice. Just a touch of alcohol heat. I'd have this again.

I was in the mood for a double IPA or something similarly piney yet crisp. I was actually planning to get some Sierra Nevada Tornado when this can caught my eye in the package store. I had never had a Sixpoint brew before but decided to give it a try. Wow! Slightly cloudy appearance, tenacious lace on the glass. Great taste, very strongly piney and a little heavy bodied for a dIPA. I really enjoyed this beer's drinkability. I will certainly buy this again. (Note: It did wallop me with a pretty nasty hangover the next morning, which I attributed to the heavy hops and high ABV.)

poured into bells tulip glass.

Best before date of 11/23/12.

Appearance: cloudy golden bodied beer with 2 fingers of white head. Leaves nice curtians on the side of the glass. The head has decent staying power to it as well.

Smell: Big pine notes with some mangos and pineapples to compliment.

Taste: Just like the nose pine starts this beer off, but it fades fairly quickly to citris notes. Oranges, mangos, and pineapples. The beer is moderately bitter and is fairly hop forward with a little bit of malts that break up some of the bitterness, but I would not say its very well balanced. Malts taste like fresh baked french bread and honey. The beer finishes with a mild citrisy and grassy bitterness that seems to linger for a while.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. ABV well hidden.

Overall: Its a good DIPA, but nothing thats unique about it. I love that its a solid beer offering in a can. I wish it was a little better, but its still pretty good beer.

Enjoyed at the pour farm tavern in new bedford.

poured from an awesome energy drink like can into a standard pint.glass. straw colored with a thick haze and white head that settles into a thin lacing.

lots of citrus and pine hop aroma with little malt character. its gonna be a west coast style i can already tell.

loads of citrus hop flavor with some nice tropical fruit flavor (guava) special thanks to a heavy hand on the hops. has a bit of light caramel malt sweetness but i didnt find it to be sweet at all. perfectly balanced for a 9% abv DIPA. up there with the best of em.

sticky, resinous mouthfeel. enjoyable.

a cant-miss brew for hop heads. worth seeking out.

A - pours a cloudy gold/yellow color. Nearly four fingers worth of tan foam. Decent retention, it fades slowly leaving a thick coat of on the glass.

S - smell is a bit muted though an interest aroma as it seems to be a contrast of light and dark. Bright notes of sugar coated orange peeles, and soft fullfy biscuits drizzled with orange blossom honey. There is also a dankness with lots of resiny pine notes. Very balanced and unique.

T - biscuity honey flavors up front but much drier than expected. Burst of citrus flavored and bitterness along with pine needles. Snappy bitter finish. The flavor is simple yet delectable.

M - the lighter side of medium bodied. Watery with a sort of creamy edge. Strong and foamy carbonation.

O - tastey double IPA. Delicately balanced between sweet and bitter. Certianly something I would keep on hand. Plus the can is just freaking cool.
