Pours slightly opaque amber orange with lacy 3 finger head. Nice balance of citrus hops and malt on the smell. Taste is pleasantly balanced. Sweet malts and citrus hops with little to no alcohol taste. Slightly resinous but fairly thin and high carbonation.

Overall one of the best dipa bangs for your buck.

Poured from the can into a glass, it has a bright orange color body with a fizzy head. The aroma has a great pine hop aroma to it. The taste starts off with a crisp pine flavor from the hops then a little malt comes to play. The mouthfeel leaves a sticky hop flavor and overall a darn good beer.

Out of the can and into a snifter for the review. Others were drank from can.

A- Dark amber, orange color. Two finger head with light lacing. Looks resinous like its name.

S- Decent amount of hops that were more on the piney and leafy side, than fruity. Pine, grass, and cedar resins (had to). A little floral smell and a bit of citrus, but not quite as juicy as I prefer. Malts definitely present in the smell as well.

T- I wouldn't call this a hop-forward ale, as the malts are right up there in the taste. Lots of pine and dry hops. Finish was also a little bitter, but well balanced if you like your malts present in a DIPA, I prefer hop-forward.

M- Medium bodied. A little sticky.

O- Not a bad job from Sixpoint. If you like well balanced DIPAs with a heavy hop and malt presence, than this is worth a try. Im sure I'll revisit Resin again, but with so much out there and me liking lighter, more citrusy DIPAs, it might be a little while before we unite. Definitely an overall good ale though.
