An ode to the sticky quintessence of hops that never forgoes balance. This piney, resinous Double IPA clocks in at over 100 IBUs.

12 fl oz. tall skinny can, with bottom of can reading "best before August 10, 2013". Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours a beautiful burnt sienna orange color with about one finger of doughy white head. Nice scattered lacing.

S - Peaches. Mango. Pineapple. Papaya. Light tropical fruit medley smells coming from the hops. Slight underlying booziness coming through from this beer's intense 9.10% abv.

T - Spicy bitterness packs a punch, as you would expect with a beer coming in at 103 IBU. Little bit of alcohol warmth, but finishes smooth, creamy, and fruity. Lots of intense hop bitterness, but finishes with a light tropical fruit cocktail sort of taste. Could have benefited from more balance with the malts perhaps.

M - Sticky, bitter, and yes, resinous mouthfeel. Smooth and light aftertaste, yet initially this beer is bitter and spicy.

Overall, a heavy-hitting, bitter, and intense imperial IPA from Sixpoint. Two of these tall skinny green cans will satisfy your hop fix and have you feeling pretty good too with a nice 9.10% abv. Probably a little too intense on the hops for my liking, but a decent DIPA, and one I am glad to have tried. Impressed with Sixpoint so far and can't wait to try more.

Sixpoint Resin ---4/5.

On tap served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange with a small white head. It's gone quickly but leaves nice lacing. Thin bit of foam sustains on the surface.

Smell - Sweet smelling more than anything. I hesitate to say that the hop aroma is resiny,but iit's accurate. Grapefruit backs it up. Hefty sweet malt.

Taste - Sweetness still at the forefront. More citrusy here, grapefruit. More of that pine resin flavor behind it, building to a string pine bitterness. Finishes with a heft of both bitterness and sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium heavy sweetness. Very bitter all the same.

Overall - Solid DIPA, but not among my favorites. Nice to see something this good regularly available in Florida though.
