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

The pour out of the "Mich Ultra" type can produces a thick 2 finger head.

Aroma has me confused. Is a DIPA as it states? Did I grab the wrong box? Extremely malt forward.

Taste is the same...extremely malty and no citrus notes or bite that I expect in a DIPA. I'm not saying that all DIPAs have to be west coast style (see my love of Big A) but this beer just doesn't strike me at all as a DIPA.

Sorry...not my cup of tea. I have 3 more to drink and maybe my opinion will change...but I doubt it.

UPDATE - Since this review, I have had a number of additional servings of Resin and my opinion has changed. Might've been some quality issues since that first 4 pack, but since then I have grown to enjoy it. Not the best DIPA out there, but pretty solid.

12 oz. can, Stamped "Best Before 03March2013" on bottom of can, poured into ST Tulip
A- Pours a sort of creamy/fluffy slightly off white 1.5 finger head, golden/orange in color, very hazy with a lot of bubbles flowing through to the top, good retention, nice lacing
S- Good bit of pine, citrus and hoppiness, deep caramel and brown sugar smell becomes very powerful, different but very pleasant
T- Some bitterness, resinous pine and citrus fruits, brown sugar and caramel malt base give it a nice sweetness
M- Medium body, A little sticky and oily, pretty smooth, flavors and bitterness linger nicely, surprisingly slight amount of carbonation
O- One of my go-to year-round DIPAs, the unique brown sugar flavor/aroma is something I haven't come across in an IPA.

A: Poured into glass with two fingers of a wheaty colored head. Its was a translucent amber in color. Thick, sticky lacing all around the glass.

S: Huge smell of piney hops, with a hint of citrus. More fragrant than most, which is enjoyable.

T: Big bitter hop flavor in front that leads to piney and earthy flavors. A little bit of citrus. Similar to the smell. I'm also tasting a savory, buttery flavor in there as well which is unique and pleasing. It does leave a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

M: Pretty thick and bold. It is a little creamy with a medium amount of carbonation.

O: This is a big DIPA. A real, full-bodied beer. This is not for the casual IPA drinker. For those who are searching for the best DIPA, this is a must try. This doesn't fit the mold and is different and better than the average DIPA.

An excellent looking DIPA. Super clingy head leaving tons of lacing in my pint glass. A cloudy amber pour that resonates in the glass. Just beautiful. Nearly perfect.

Sharp pine notes and sweet caramel malt mix well...a good dose of both on the scent. A hint of what's to come.

Taste follows...a very fresh piney slap of hops to the pallete. The malt takes a back seat but is stll there. A terrific example of a fresh pine hop DIPA. Some good citrus in there as well. Actually quite enjoy the biting carbonation on the backend...mouth feels assaulted by the hops. Quite dry..makes me want another sip almost immediately.

Really like this one. Glad to see it on the shelves in Round Rock, Texas. Price point is good too. Will certainly have again. Welcome to Texas Sixpoint!

12oz. can poured into a tulip. One of the more interesting cans I have seen just because it is so narrow but taller to fit all 12oz's.

(A)- Pours a hazy golden orange color. Produced a giant head of white froth. Superb retention and good lacing to boot.

(S)- A nice combo of deep hoppy pine; fitting of its name. A zesty citrus of orange and pineapple fruits.

(T)- Similar to the smell in alot of ways. The same great combo of a deep hoppy pine and a crisp citrus profile. Some subtle biscuit on the finish.

(M)- A great carbonation level and a great balance here. Crisp yet very hoppy, but with such a solid citrus profile and a smooth maltiness; it is very harmonious.

(O)- Overall, one of the better DIPA's I have had in a long time. Expertly balanced and incredibly refreshing. Very well done, this will definitely be sighted in my fridge in the future.

Wow, what a beer!
Poured into my crystal mug, the beer is an almost clear beautiful medium gold. A nice two finger high, creamy light tan head builds and sticks arround. Nice lacing after dissipating.
The smell is of resin, citrus flavors and earthy hops, with hints of honey in the background.
Tasting the beer, there are pineapple and some citrus flavors up front, but quickly taken by more earthy and resin hop flavors. A malt backbone is present for balance.
Some honey flavors. Nice bitter finish.
A very beautifully crafted beer. Great carbonation and good body. A must try for the IPA lover.
