12oz. can into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Take note other breweries! Use these style of cans! Much, much easier to ship than any other format of packaging!

Pours a 1 finger foamy white head with decent retention. Beer is a clear, dark copper. Lacing is stringy, spotty and thick with good cling. Very good.

Nose is sap, ethanol, cane sugar, and well, pine resin hoppiness. Moderately aromatic and enticing. I usually like the style to be a bit fruitier.

Opens sappy with huge resiny hop notes. Amber and cane sugar in the middle with some citrus and ethanol at the finish. Lingering, sweet hop notes in the aftertaste. Definitely true to the name.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth in the mouth and goes down dry. Finishes messy with a lingering aftertaste. Average. Aftertaste is a bit much on this.

Overall, pretty unspectacular. This beer represents its name very well in both the nose and flavor so if you're into the very sappy and resiny DIPAs, then this might be right up your ally. That being said, its not what I prefer in my DIPAs so this is likely the last time I'll enjoy this one.

A - Pours copper with a massive frothy white head. Leaves a great amount of lacing.

S - Lots of grapefruit, heavy malt, a bit of alchohol and grain. Slight mango.

T - Heavily piney up front shortly followed by a hige amount of malt. Banana and grapefruit work it's way in along with a bit of iron-like finish.

M - Medium slightly creamy body with moderate carbonation.

O - Overall, this was pretty damn good. Perfectly balanced and very drinkable for the ABV. I'd definitely have another.

Pouring to a hazy orange, this double IPA offers an assertive nose of citrus, pine, caramel, and grapefruit. The head of foam is significant and it holds together for a nice long time, leaving lace on the glass as you consume.

This beer has, as expected, a taste every bit as assertive as its nose would lead you to believe. It offers a big hop taste of pine and citrus that doesn’t quit, backed by a medium malty body that emphasizes some caramel notes and then finishes with a hoppy persona that just keeps on giving.

One can find a good deal of complexity in this ale, but one thing I noticed is that the complexity becomes more pronounced if the beer is allowed to warm up just a bit. There is already a good deal of flavor at normal refrigeration temperatures, but the taste becomes even better if the beer is allowed to warm to about 50 degrees. The alcohol also becomes a little more pronounced, but the other flavors are more noticeable and more flavorful.

Some may find this beer a little over the top, but I find it just about right for a member of the double IPA family. It isn’t too extreme, but it definitely packs in the hops and is memorable and recommended to hopheads everywhere.

12oz. Green Can. Freshness date on bottom.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a large fluffy white head. Good retention
and nice sticky lacing.

S: Pine, citric notes of lemon and grapefruit, sweeter as it warms.

T/M: Sticky hops, pine, grapefruit, other citric. bitter, alcohol, enough
malts to bring back the bitterness. fairly full bodied and smooth. More
of that alcohol feel. Slightly sweet. Big finish as it stays hopy and bitter
with the inclusion of some sweetness.

O: Well this DIPA is big and quit enjoyable to sip on. The straight forward
piny citric hops are great. The warming sweetness is a plus while the alcohol
can sneak up on you. A very good beer by Sixpoint.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a snifter. Pours a deep hazy orange with a 2 finger head, slight lacing. Smells of pink grapefruit and pine. The nose is fantastic.

This beer is so good. Opens with big pink grapefruit, bitterness is held in check by the malt backbone. This one never gets sweet, the hop remains forward throughout. Finish is just like the start, big, boozy, hop forward. I love it.

Carbonation is spot on. Mouthfeel is bubbly, never sticky. Overall this may be my favorite go to DIPA. For the price it really doesn't get better than this for me. This beer made me repent of my not liking can beers. Thank you Six Point, you just keep doin what you're doin there guy.

Sixpoint Resin Double IPA served in a pint glass.

Appearance - A beautiful peaking white head atop a gleaming orange-amber hue..almost caramel in color. A very nice looking beer. As you drink webbed lacing cascades down the glass.

Smell - This brew didn't have the nose and aroma I expect of a DIPA like this. It still has an herbal sappy aroma that was nice, while I desire much more here.

Taste - This is the part of this DIPA that really blew me away, the outrageous hop flavor that explodes in my mouth as I sip this beauty. The name of this brew, resin, really fits the hoppy mouth watering flavor here.

Mouthfeel - The resin also supports the mouthfeel on this one. An almost sticky body the envelopes your entire mouth. A lingering bed of hop flavor once again.

Overall I would say this is one of my favorite beers, being a big IPA fan. I also like the price on the Resin. 8.99 for a 4-pack of 12 oz cans. 9.1 abv

12 oz tall can, poured into glass. Golden, and mostly clear. Thick beady head quickly dissipated. Sweet piney aroma with hints of malt and alcohol. A burst of bitterness up front, followed by piney hops, leaving warming alcohol and a bit of toasted. The alcohol is more prominent as the beer warms, which adds to the beers complexness. A very good imperial ipa- not just a overload of hops, the malt characteristics pair well with the piney hops.
