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

Served in a pint glass at The LoKal Burgers & Beer (Miami).

A- Pours a somewhat hazy medium amber with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains long and beautifully before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and spotty surface foam. Resilient, multi-patterned lacing adheres to the glass.

S- Burst of fresh piney hops with a decent amount of malt sweetness to balance.

T- The bitterness takes a second to sink its teeth in, but when it does, it bites down hard. It lingers quite a while also. Guessing the IBUs are somewhere around 100 on this one. The hops are more earthy and herbal with only a slight note of fruit. The malt sort of gets lost in all the all the alpha acid action which is fine.

M- Like I said, super bitey and a bit dry. Medium carbonation and a pretty standard body for the style.

O- Yep, this IPA is no joke when it comes to bitterness. Almost a chore to finish a pint. If you want a beer to scrape the enamel off your teeth, look no further.

Pours a toasted, hazy amber hue into my tasting glass. The tall can it comes in reminds me of a 'Red Bull.' An initial frothy head recedes to barely a thin ring, but on the plus side there is a sticky mess of lacing down the glass. Great look. It's smells wonderful - mostly pineapple, grapefruit, cream & caramel. Fairly straightforward. The flavor exudes the 'resinous' variety of hops as the name suggests, but also a subtle caramel, candy-ness of the malts, and a certain earthy aspect I cannot quite put my finger on, but I like it. It's mouthfeel is medium, just coating the mouth thinly, with an alcohol heat that you notice before long. The beer is numbing on the back of your throat, leaving you wanting another pleasant sip. Overall, this is simultaneously sweet and bitter. A great east coast IPA. Well done Sixpoint, a brewery close to home.

I am really impressed with this beer. First off IPA's in cans are growing on me quicklike.

A: Pretty clear well filtered, little bubbles, bright white head and some lacing

S: Citrus and Hops all the away.

T: Fruity with a nice hope balance, would never know its 103 IBU

M: Sticky as expected from a beer called Resin, nice mouthfeel to it

O: This is a great beer. Could be very dangerous in multiples.

I've had 4 or 5 of these now (not at once) and have to say that they're a bit inconsistent. I really feel like some cans had noticeable differences. Still, it's good beer. Great citrus-y aroma and nice taste. Like Heady Topper, it's got kind of a resiny feel to it, which is a bit too much sometimes, but overall, just a nice orange-y colored citrus-y DIPA. I like the 12 ounce cans too!
