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.

It came in the tall skinny can. Pours amber/gold with a slightly off-white head that has a mix of large and small bubbles.
Deep pine hop aroma.
The balance between the hops and malt is amazing. The deep pine hop taste is there but it never gets to the point of bitter. Although the hop flavor lingers there is also a sweetness that hangs around in the aftertaste as well.
For a double it is on the light watery side, but I'm okay with that.
This is a beer I will go to again, all around above average.

Not bad at all. Resin . . . I've seen more resinous beers in my day, but okay.
Seriously solid double IPA all around. Drinkable off the charts for a 9.1% beaster. Doesn't offend much at all, and this makes me wonder if drinkability was high on the priority list. Hops juicify, bitterize, spicify, and resinilatize this thing; they clearly guide the conversation -there is a nice sweetie-pie of a sticky malt in the middle too. Balanced as fuck. However, nothing steps out as above the fray for a double in the hop-forward family . . . aside from the craftsmanship! Just a well-crafted, even-handed, beauty beer. I'd buy this again, for sure!
The rest of six-point's beers turn me off a bit because of the price per ounce/abv, despite being good. For example, Apollo* and Sweet Action are dope! But, in those instances, you're giving me 4 talls for 10 plus bucks where I live . . . in Boston! It's not even like I'm in Kansas!
*Apollo is the best Kristallweizen ever, besides the obvious Westenpheerznsiernserm.

As a big fan of all things Sixpoint, I was very excited about trying this. $13 a 4 pack of 12 oz cans.
Aroma- Moderate hop aroma, Columbus perhaps? I had this right after a stone IPA from a bottle and the stone had more hop aroma.
Flavor- High bitterness, but not mouth puckering. Well balanced with the malt profile.
Finish- Dry, which is excellent for any IPA/DIPA. If I had to guess, I would think this was an 8% beer.
Overall- Save your money. Though a very good beer, there are so many other DIPA's as well as IPA's which are much better than this. I was very disapointed at the lack of hop aroma for this type of beer. Other than that, it is a solid IPA, nothing special and certainly not worthy of its price tag.

Pours a a very pretty deep rich amber color that is slightly hazy. Off white head falls slow to a ring with some nice lace.
Aroma is nice big wonderful hops just like the name Resin. Pine dominating nose with some underlying citrus notes mingled with some sweet hints of malt.
Taste is nice big huge amounts of hops assault the tongue. Pine resin, tobacco, grapefruit rinds and some herbal notes. In the finish you can get glimpses of the malt sweetness. Big slamming taste bud crushing hop feast. As it warms some alcohol hints are noted but do not distract.
Mouthfeel is medium with slightly peppy carbonation.
Overall if you want a big in your face hop bomb look no further. Not a balanced I2PA but very nice hop forward brew. Might not be world class but fairly tasty.
