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

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy orange/amber with a two finger head that retained for quite a while. Spotty lacing.

Smell: Very hop forward aroma with a mixture of pine and citrus. Not much else beyond that.

Taste: Smacks the palate with hops. A bit of pepper taste and a big bitter kick as it finishes.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, sticky, average carbonation.

Overall: A bit one-dimensional, but appealing for those that like their share of hops.

4.15/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Resin pours a slightly hazy orange color and is topped with ¾” of off white colored head that lasts for quite a while. Belgian lacing rings the chalice as I drink the beer it makes it easy to tell how many drinks I have had since I started this review.
Smell: A blast of grassy, pine and citrus aromas fill your nose upon the first smell. It is followed by the slightest hints of malt sweetness.
Taste: Hop bitterness is the first thing that I taste and I really can’t discern between hop flavors they just kind of melt together to make a tasty stew of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Resin is right in the middle of the road on the body of the beer; easy drinking and yet nice feel to it that the flavors stick around tastefully. I was hoping for a little better hop profile while drinking Resin but it felt a little bit on the muddy side, it is still a very tasty beer just a bit under what I was expecting.

Recommended by former coworker at my local pacakage store.
Glad i took his word for it;

A-Dark orange slightly hazey amber

S- Not a very pungent one at least on the nose; mint and hops faintly whisper

T- Spicy, minty, pine sap, with a sweet malt with round it off but still ending with the bitter bitter resin of hop and alcohol; I love it.

MF- Heavy and slightly carbonated. The alcohol feeling lasts.

Overall a very interesting Double out of a can nonetheless a good smack in the face and ruin on the palate from one of my favorite plants the Hop. Havent had my palate this bland since Stones Ruination

On tap at the Fat Cat in Chicago.

Appearance - Mildly Hazy Orange with minimal carbonation. Decent lacing on the sides.

Smell - Piney/Citrus Hops, Malts, Toffee, with a hint of caramel.

Taste - Malts, Piney Hops, Malts, Caramel and Toffee. Not quite as strong as I had anticipated, but pretty good nonetheless

Mouthfeel - Somewhat light and smooth with very little carbonation.

Overall - For a Double IPA, it's not what I would call "strong" but as a stand alone IPA, it's very delicious and easy to drink!

Poured into a Sam Adams Boston Lager glass. Dark red or copper color. Clear in appearance with many ultra tiny carbonation bubbles that lead to a large two finger head that is tan colored and creamy in appearance. Head recedes fairly rapidly and leaves a huge web of lace.

Smell is on the earthy side. Grass, yeast and mild sweet malt. Some light citrus, overripe orange or blood orange and a bit of alcohol.

Taste is tongue lashing bitter citrus. Yellow grapefruit. A bit of alcohol in the taste too.

Mouth is bright. Carbonation is on the spritzy side. Finish is long and tongue coating wet.

Overall I thought this was a pretty good DIPA but not a world class one. This was my first Sixpoint brew and am pretty impressed with this one. Thanks to TIMMYJ21 for this one.
