BA trader sidebordz hooked me up with this beer per request. Cheers and thanks again Blake!

Pouring into a Delirium Tremens tulip. Good clarity with an amber color and a 1-2 finger crop of slightly rocky off-white foam. Great head retention and an attractive lace pattern sticks to the glass as the foam slowly settles.

Prominent sticky piney resiny hop aromas. Slight hint a citrus. Malty sweetness also detectable. Dank hop quality sneaks up as the beer continues to breathe.

Big upfront hoppy bite with a great balance of firm lightly toasted (but mostly clean) malty sweetness. Bitterness is high and lingers on into a medium, dry finish. Light fruity ester presence.

Medium bodied with a moderate-high carbonation level. Smooth alcohol warmth.

A great DIPA should maintain a level of drinkable and avoid being so heavy as to be a sipping beer. Sixpoint has done well to include enough malty sweetness to offset Resin's deluge of hop flavor and bitterness.

Poured into a tulip from a 12oz narrow can.

By far one of the nicest looking DIPAs out there. Very deep deep murky and hazy cooper color with some nice slight caramel and amber orange colors. THere is a nice 1 inch head that is a light ecru color with some nice dense bubbles and some great retention. Very nice lacing is left as the head slowly recedes.

Very apropos name. Resiny pine notes start off this brew with some nice flowery and herbal hop notes. A bit of a sticky nose with some nice hop juice notes and some slight tropical notes. There is also some slight caramel malt notes in there.

Interesting flavor profile. Starts off quite bitter and I cant quite place it right away. There is some nice caramel and toasty malt that try to shine through the intense resin and bitterness. There is some nice pine and also some nice citrus notes. As the brew warms the hop character can be more readily appreciated and its very intense and bitter. Mouthfeel is nice and refreshing with a nice dry intense bitterness.

Pretty good DIPA. Very nice pine hop notes and intense bitterness.

Poured into an Allagash flute on 3/29/12

Best before 25 Nov 2012

Deep, hazy appearance. Honey and tangerine-hued. Pours a wimpy head, not even a finger's worth. It stands to reason the head doesn't hold well, finding only a soapy layer. Ok lace.

Aromas of pine tar, over-ripe citrus, onion, bubblegum, scented soap, flower petals, bread, caramel and overtones of alcohol wafting about. It's all rather bizarre.

The taste takes a page from the bizarre aroma; I can't shake the notion of flowers and bubblegum. Beyond that, there is a dense bitterness that shirks hop flavor in favor of headache medicine. Sure, there are undercurrents of pine and skeevy citrus, but it's mostly just rampant bitterness. Well, rampant bitterness and malt. Bread, yeast, grain and a hint of caramel.

Medium full body with sugar granules swaying back and forth. Carbonation is moderate, maybe even on the low side; I like that.

Overall impression - It's never a good thing when the product description of a DIPA refers to "encroaching malt sweetness."

Poured from the can into a nonic a clear copper color with a rather thin head that was gone quickly with only a trace of lace left behind.Sticky resinious hops like the name suggests dominates the nose along with some sweet alcohol and a hint of brown sugar.There is a definint hit of hops on the palate but they dont hit hard they seem to roll across the palate wich isn't bad but it's not full on like expected,mild caramel and more assertive alcohol sweetness creeps.The sweetness isn't to big like to many of the style but the hops could pack a little more puch,I love Sixpoint but this I only kinda liked.

Got surprised with a can from a friend. God bless dakkon54!

Pour is initially a slightly hazy deep straw color with a thick white head. The smell is much more balanced than I expected. It has a a powdery sweet malt backbone with a hint of resinous hops. he taste follows in suit. Sweet malt backbone stands out, with the resinous and citric hops coming in to balance things out.

The scary part is that its drinkable. Way too drinkable for the ABV. I would buy this if it was in NC.

It pours a copper honey color with mild haziness and a small amount of sediment in the glass. A nice finger and a half of white head sits atop the beer and has pretty solid retention with great sticky soapy lacing. The aroma is really dank, the name Resin is definitely earned here. Big hazy hops, lots of earthiness and pine aromas, huge grapefruit presence balances the dirtier, earthier hops. Nice malt backbone supports the huge hop presence, not overly bready, a bit sweet and some alcohol comes through. Nice citrus flavors jump out at the tongue, along with some sweet tropical fruits, a la pineapple, but quickly turns earthier and grassier and very dry. There is definitely a nice contrast between the dry, sappy, bitter hops and a nice citrusy, tropical juiciness. The body is big and full, higher than expected carbonation but it’s not overly prickly or annoying.

Verdict: Rock solid DIPA from Sixpoint and so far, my favorite offering. The flavors are dank yet juicy with a nice resinous aroma. It’s a bit too dry and leaves a bit of a cottonmouth feeling but it’s definitely worth checking out if you can get it.

Pours out a nice yellow amber with two fingers of white/offwhite suds. Lacing here.
Smell is hoppy and clean with citris notes and sugarmalt. You can smell the alcohol but it is way in the back.
Taste is sweet and bitter for the most part. Not a lot of fruityness but a well balanced IPA. No alcohol detected here of any account.
Mouthfeel is a little sticky but the palate is cleansed quickly. Only the sticky resin:) is left.
Overall this is a good IPA out of a can. Would buy again for the convenience of the can and the good taste of the IPA.

Resin. The name alone conjures images of hop cones freshly picked and dripping. It rolls of the tongue and leaves hanging expectations of IPA bliss.

It does not disappoint. The pour yields a prodigious head and lots of lace and retention. The brew is cloudy with hop oil and a dark burnt orange. I bring my glass to my nose and I am thinking Pliny the Elder. So West Coast in the aroma. The hops are piney and underpinned with heavy caramel. Some citrusy notes as well. The sweetness flows into the pine hop signature so much that it seems like Christmas in my glass. There is a nice toasted multigrain breadiness with an English style yeast fruitiness. Taste is so good. This is a hop bomb to be sure but the malt core is so well mated to it that it deserves equal praise. A deep sweet caramel malt that has lots of bread on the palate. Toasted grains and flavorful bread crust. A surprising fruitiness that brings an English complexity. Hops flex with a one two punch of big pine and a grapefruit. Heavy hop oiliness in the finish that leaves lingering bitterness and grapefruit skin with the faintest bit of mint. Smooth carbonation with a lighter feel leads to exceptional drinkability. You sip and savor this all while you want to session it. There is some weight and chew to the brew but it is still supple and fluid on the tongue. It goes down easily.

What a great beer. This is an east coast Pliny and I will put it up against any IIPA out there. One of my desert island beers at this point as it is super drinkable and extreme at once. This is an exceptional beer.

A- Pours a rich copper color with a nice beige head. Head has good retention and leaves some really nice lacing.

S- Smell is a huge amount of tropical fruits. A touch of pine in here as well. A fairly strong malt back bone too with caramel malts.

T- A good amount of hops and bitterness. Again quite a bit of tropical fruits and pine. A good amount of bittereness too.

M- Medium in body and carbonation.

O- This one is very easy to drink and will sneak up on you for sure. A great brew for sure.

I'm loving the move to cans that some breweries are making. Hopefully it's cost effective enough that more can do it as well. Review is from notes taken on 4/6/2012 and poured from the can to a pint glass.

Appearance: Pour is a hazy golden/coppery color and it starts with just a short, slightly off-white head that fades to nothing but a faint, thin and incomplete skim; as mentioned, body is a little hazy but still has enough clarity to see through and the uneven carbonation -- some slow and fat, some thin and quick; fair rings of lacing are left behind.

Smell: A little weaker than I thought it would be, but I can pull out a fair amount of sweet maltiness with a firm set of citric hops -- I'm reminded of orange peel and grapefruit.

Taste: Not too shabby, not too shabby at all; hops come through more in the flavor and there's a strong orange peel, grapefruit presence to them, but it's pretty raw and spicy, like raw hope cones; nice malt backbone balances out the hops; alcohol is present, but the hops help it blend in nicely.

Mouthfeel: Sticky. Very sticky. Body is of moderate weight and the carbonation is present enough to keep it lively; thick, thick sticky coating is left all over the mouth and it's fantastic.

Overall: Pretty good overall, and the price point isn't awful for what you get out of it. I do wish the smell was more robust, though, as it's such an important part of these bigger beers in brining out the intensity of the flavors. I will be more than happy to drink my remaining three.

can picked up locally...best before 11/23/2012. enjoyed from a brooklyn snifter.

a - brew poured a classic murky semi-transparent orange with a generous frothy off white ipa head. as the head fizzled away, huge milkshake like chunks of lacing clung to the glass...essentially coating the side.

s - somewhat muted, but nice citric sweetness. the hops are there, but have a very crisp and clean smell...much more bready malt than i had expected...definitely not the sticky sweaty piny smell that makes my mouth water.

t - interesting and different. very resiny. caramel and bready malt with some hoppiness on the finish that tails off with a touch of bitterness.

m - somewhat thick. bitter on the finish.

o - overall, not your classic iipa, but not bad. if you are looking for a hop explosion, this brew doesn't have it, but if you are not a huge hophead, this is the iipa you've been waiting for. good beer, but for the iipa world, it is decent and doesn't hang with the big boys.

On-tap at Alewife in Baltimore. Served in a tulip.

A - A finger of off-white foam settles to a thick cap, leaving behind glass-coating lace - great retention. Very dark transparent amber-brown body.

S - Surprisingly malt-forward - not sure how fresh this keg is. Some pine, onion, a bit of alcohol, and a hefty caramel and red fruit malt backdrop. There's also an odd glue note mixed in there.

T - Taste is a bit better, as the alcohol is better hidden and the off-flavors have dissipated. Still fairly malty and sweet, but with herbal and grapefruit bitterness in the back end that intensifies but never quite reaches palate-wreaking.

M - It's certainly resinous, with plenty of residual oily hops coating the teeth. Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, juicy and sticky texture, and some warming alcohol presence.

D - Merely OK. I much preferred the Deviant Dale's I had earlier in the day, so I can't see much reason to bother with this one again. I'd give it another shot if I knew it was a super-fresh keg/can, just to see if this was old but that's about it.

EDIT: Just had a can dated BB Nov. 23rd, 2012, and it was significantly better. Definitely a B+. Hopefully I can get something straight off the line and re-review.

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow in color with a light tan head. In the aroma, light orange citrus and dry hops. In the taste, sticky orange citrus to a mellow pine hop, a small alcohol presence in the end. A small hop bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry hop with small citrus and a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. A bit dry, mellow hops, a bit boozy, and just about average.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a solid half inch light cream head that dissipates quickly, leaving big lacing.

Aroma is heavily bready caramel malt, with resin, pine, and a hint of citrus emerging. Resiny hops dominate eventually.

Flavor shows more undertones of citrus pith, grapefruit and tropical fruits leading to a fairly bitter and slightly peppery finish. Caramel malt is subdued, allowing the hops to shine.

Body is a bit thick, with somewhat low carbonation and a fairly significant alcohol warmth at the slightly astringent finish.

Overall, good hop flavor and a decent bitterness for the style. Malt doesn't overtake the flavor as with some dipas. Wish the aroma showed more character.

Skinny 12 oz can poured into a nonic.

Pours a chilled but clear golden copper with finger of white foam head that fades quickly to a thin film and light lace. Biscuit malt and pine hop nose, slightly sweet and caramel like. Sweet and bready body with a light rye like spice and resiny citrus and pine bitterness in the finish. Medium thick and lightly carbonated body, slightly watery and thin. Finish is spicy, cardboard and pine bitterness. Not very appealing.

I've been fighting a sinus infection, and today is the first day I can finally get back to fully experiencing a beer. This experience has been sorely missed.

I poured the can into a fluted glass from the great guys (and a couple pretty girls) at Carton brewing. The coloring is a reddish-brown with no real particulates. Foam was minimal, but it sticks really well to the sides of the glass.

Off the top you get a bunch of citrus. It plays well for a double IPA. The flavor is hopfull. There is a bunch of hops in each sip, and the bitterness is very high. This really matches all of 103 IBU. This is a decent sipper, but it will overwhelm every beer that you have after.

This is an interesting offer from Sixpoint. I think I would much rather have a Bengali Tiger in the future. It is head and shoulders over this brew.

Sixpoint Resin. Cute little green tall-boy style can. Boasting an incredible 103 IBUs.

Nice hiss/crack and following fizz noise after popping the can open. In the snifter, a beautiful clear carrot orange color with over a finger of white creamsicle head that fell to a ring while leaving lace rings. Laces better than most DIPAs. 4.5

Once the can cracked, an amazing fresh-mowed lawn scent flew at me. Sticking my nose in the mouth of the glass offers up more big grassy hops, orange, a little mango, and some fresh sap. A most incredible fresh leafy dry-hop nose, if I may say so myself. 4.5

Crisp and bitter with that resinous/oily hop burst that strides in swatches of pine, herb, mint, tobacco, citrus, and tropical fruit. That mintyness really shines in the finish. Wafery malt is pretty much backing away to let the humulus do their thang. A little sweetness in the end is a pro on the malt side of the Venn diagram. 4.0

The mouthfeel is decent for drinkability. I wouldn't call the hop bitterness thrashing, but it's got a good foothold on the taste buds. The body is considerably thinner than expected. It's probably great drinking straight from the can. Above-standard carbonation for the higher gravity. 4.0

Overall, a solid offering from Sixpoint. Would totally buy again, and in bulk quantity. Awesome nose, drinkability, dry-hop character, and packaging. 4.0

Growler enjoyed this past weekend
Big thanks to mdfb79 for the fill - Cheers Dan!

A: Pours a deep dark amber color that is mostly clear. Minimal bubbles yet forms an awesomely dense stack of khaki cream. Superb retention that leaves sheets of frosty lace down the glass.

S: Smell is quite danky with an orange-mango pine opening interlaced with some caramel sweet malts. Hints of grapefruit flesh. With a sharp fusel alcohol note that perks as the fruit and sugar aromas dispel.

T: The taste is real juicy but exhibits more of an herbal and spice character than the nose. Definite earthy hemp and pine with some Rye in the mix perhaps. Some candied grapefruit and orange peel. Hops are not as resinous as perhaps the name eludes. Malt imparts a bit of toasted grainy cracker but all in all flavors are melded together quite nicely. Good layering. Like a carmelized raisin spice cake (some Special B perhaps?). ABV's make a show. Not super bitter and juicy sweet for sure. Digging it.

M: Mouthfeel was somewaht soft on the palate overall but sort of the low point for me. Malts lend to a much thicker body here and with the lower carbonation factor the hops just dont percolate the palate like they should. Result is a much wetter finish and lack of hoppy resonation.

D: A fairly nice DIPA that manages some decent balance what with alot going on flavor wise. Herbals, Pine, Citrus, Caramel, Spice, and Alcohol all in the mix. Could prob pass more as an Imperial Red actually.
Found it rather smooth drinking. Would have again.

Well. Dissapointing. Just not much of anything going on here.

Pours gold to orange hue, pretty beer. Faint hoppy aroma leading to slight citrus hoppy taste. Some bitterness, metallic finish, decent orange grapefruit aftertaste after drinking 2 cans.

Only thing double about this IPA is the abv. If you're looking for big hop flavor and bitterness, look elsewhere. Don't waste your money.

A - Well it looks dank. Color is a hazy deep brow with tons of carbonation resulting in a 1/2 inch of opaque colored head.

S - Smells moderately hoppy, more pine than citrus which is kind of a surprise in the DIPA category. Hopefully malt to balance.

T - Taste is resinous with bittering pine in the finish but not as much as expected to linger on the palate. Taste is pretty good overall with very little alcohol bite.

M - Medium bodied and carbonation is good.

Overall I expected this beer to be a hop punch in the mouth but ended up getting a sweet level of bittering hops with a high octane ABV. If I find a four pack I will get it again but a 3 dollar single was worth it.

Well that's a screw. I didn't realize this beer comes in 12oz cans instead of the usual 16oz for Sixpoint. Very sneaky of them to use tall skinny cans so the packaging looks the same as the others. Oh well, this four-pack has a best-by date of July 30.

This pours a nearly garnet reddish brown, and it's very hazy. Sand-colored head is about a finger think with good lacing. Looks great in the glass. Aroma is not what I expected, as I get some of the fruity hops but there is also lots of caramel sweetness and a tiny bit of spice.

Hmm, taste is also a bit different from other DIPAs. Definitely thinner than I'd prefer, and that helps to hide the abv as well. It's extremely bitter in the finish, after building through a malty-yet-not-sweet body.

It's not bad, but given the price per ounce, I was hoping for more. It delivers neither a crazy aromatic IPA nor a nice and sticky imperial ale. I'll skip this one in the future.

Poured from a 12oz can to a DFH snifter glass.

A- Dark ruby red, fair amount of hop haze, creamy bubbly head swirling around the top of the glass.

S- Dank hops, big hop juice profile. Hints of marijuana, tobacco, more piny hops all over, very earthy.

T- Sweet citrus hops, creamy caramel malt, tobacco, lemon, and holy hell does this sucker leave bitter. The finish is equal to biting into a ruby red grapefruit, out standing.

M- Full bodied, above average carbonation, sweet, juicy, and god, fucking bitter!

O- Very impressed by this DIPA, this is on of my first beers from 6point, i will most likely seek out others. But this is just great, no alcohol detected at all truly a beast of a DIPA.

On tap at Churchkey DC 2.17.12, $8 for 14 oz. beeker.

One finger off white head, slow dissipation with good lacing. Orange pine in the nose, some caramel. Big hop taste upfront, mild pine resin in the middle back end medium resin, creeper, mediium effervecence. Decent residual sweetness, a bit sticky yet dry. OK for East Coast DIPA, but not in the same league as Tankslapper.

12oz can poured into my Ithaca glass. It poured orange amber in color with a foamy white head filling the top inch of the glass. Pretty nice lacing on the glass as I drank it as well.

The aroma is hoppy with a mix of pine, orange and grapefruit flavors. There is a pretty big malt base to it as well with a little bit of bready and caramel flavors to it.

The taste also has grapefruit and orange flavors coming out of the hoppiness. Some citrus rind and pine resin bitterness comes out more towards the finish. Again, the malt base is pretty apparent with some biscuity, slightly sweet caramel notes. A little alcohol is noticeable in the finish as well.

The mouthfeel feels a little heavy for the style with carbonation being moderate. Overall it was a pretty good beer, but not a real outstanding one of the style for me. The hoppiness just didn't really stand out to me directly compared to other highly regarded versions of the style. It did feel relatively balanced and drinkable though for the style, especially for the abv.
