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

A-Golden yellow color with a faint haziness. Two finger head that leaves a nice cap.

S-Pine and earthy hop aroma with a slight spice.

T-Light malted flavor with a nicely balanced hop flavor. Nice sweet punch with the hoppy bitterness of pine and resin.

M-Medium body with moderate carbonation.

O-Solid double IPA, I like the subtle sweetness that helps balance the beer out. Very drinkable for 9.1%

5 months outside of the best by so I don’t know where that falls, but seems reasonable enough to drink.

Poured fairly aggressively into a Struise glass giving way to a big white head and a orange/coppery colored beer that is clear and has lots of carbonation going on.

You get the namesake deep dank and resinous piney hop smell but there is also some big sweeter orange fruit with orange, peach, cantaloupe, and grapefruit going on. Herbal, a little spicy, and a little biscuity as well.

The taste is wonderful. It follows the nose with a big resinous pine and sweeter fruit character of peach and orange. It gets herbally as well. Some crackery biscuit type of malt character. Interesting.

Drinks fairly smooth and the bitterness isn’t too great. This is an interesting DIPA.

Sixpoint - Resin - 12fl oz can

Look - Interesting 12oz skinny can, never seen that before. The brew pours a hazy light copper with a full, soapy head. Lacing abound. Minimal carbonation.

Smell - Quite the aroma, hop/malt fusion with a bitter bite to the nose, the hops smell quite sweet.

Taste - Full flavored hop wave with some malt and a piney/resin finish. The dry hops keep the very sweet malts they used in check but allows some of the sweetness through. Well done!

Mouthfeel - Remarkably smooth and drinkable for the ABV and in general, this brew is worthy of an award.

Overall - Another one of Sixpoint's amazing brews!
