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

Poured a two finger off white head into a snifter. Crystal clear amber color with great lacing.  Pine and grapefruit were very pronounced from smell to taste. Considering the 103 IBU'S and 9.1 ABV, I found Sixpoint Resin very drinkable and not to boozie, a good quality DIPA.

Can dated BB 09AUG2015 poured into IPA glass

Appearance: Amazing clarity, golden orange hue, one finger head that dissipates into an oily slick on top with some moderate lacing on the first sips. 4.25/5

Smell: Fresh hops jump out of the can. Pour it out and a touch of alcohol is present. Citrus, pine, herbal. Smells like a great IPA, whats not to love? 4.5/5

Taste: Hits hard. Big hops, grapefruit peel, orange, pine, lemon, alcohol comes out in the taste a bit more as it warms. Sadly tastes overly bitter, lacking a bit of balance that the Hi-Res has. Nice sweet/citrus acidity in the aftertaste once my mouth can process the bitterness. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: Crisp. Dare I say, resinous? Med/High Carb. Still hard to get past the bitterness 3.5/5

Overall: So promising. Great nose, great flavors, just needs a bit more balance IMO. Strangely, more alcohol/bitterness than Hi-Res. Still, a top notch beer. Very good west coast style DIPA. 4/5

Great for an IPA. I'm really into the more bitter IPA's w the citrus taste and delicious bitter after taste to take away from having to take a sip every 5 seconds. If you enjoy imperials definitely give Resin a try. First try from Six Point but mos def On Point! Enjoy!

A full body. A little oily taste. Great!

Best By July 7, 2015 Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

L- Light amber/deep gold, some chill haze, one finger white head.

S- Has a sweet smell of citrus and some stone fruit with a very slight bubble gummy thing, the alcohol is a bit noticeable.

T- Has like a honey sweetness that I wasn't expecting, more stone fruit of unripe nectarine and apricot, grapefruit, not as piney and resiny as expected. Some alcohol but the sweetness is helping to cover it up.

F- Thin syrup, at the lower end of the carbonation for the style.

O- A friend picked this up for me and according to the best by date it is fresh but this must have been stored improperly or something because I'm not tasting big sticky pine notes like many other reviewers are getting. A bit disappointed with this one. It has a sweetness I don't really care for and being called 'RESIN' I was expecting lots of sticky pine but didn't really get that.
