Pours a cloudy light copper color with over a finger of off-white head. The hops in the nose are pretty mellow and accompanied by a touch of pine. The hop bitterness is definitely the feature of the flavor profile. This offering is rather full-bodied as DIPAs go, but the maltiness does not manage to poke through the hop onslaught.

This is a good but definitely unbalanced DIPA. I’d recommend going straight to Hi-Res which is a notch above in more than just ABV.

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

Perfect name for a DIPA if it follows through with the sticky, resiny hops.

amber/copper in color with a chunky off-white head that is decent sized, lasts forever and laces well.

malty aroma bringing in notes of biscuits, caramel, and toffee and a significant piney hoppiness with an underlying citrus bitterness.

crackery, biscuity malts come first but quickly give way to the piney, slightly citrusy hops with a peppery kick. an herbal aspect before it finishes sweet and syrupy, but not quite resiny.

medium bodied with subtle carbonation and a syrupy and slightly resiny finish.

mehhhh. I enjoy it. but, It's not exciting, not quite resiny, not quite hop-forward, yet not quite balanced.

From a 12 oz can (best by September 20, 2014) into a nonic.

A-The beer is a hazed honey color. The head is quite sticky and dense with lots of clingy lacing on the glass and good retention. It looks resinous and oily.

S-The aroma is big on the hops as you would expect, but there is a nice balance of toasty, caramel malt flavor. As for hops, I get some orange zest, pine, leaf, and an oily aroma with a moderate amount of sharpness.

T-The taste is also nicely balanced between hops and malt. The hops are more leafy, oily, and piny than many IIPAs these days, but there is a nice, bright bit of citrus (orange juice) in there. A nice toast balances the hop assault. As the brew warms, a medicinal bit of alcohol creeps in, but otherwise the alcohol is well-concealed.

M-In a word, resinous. The body is medium to full in heft with a creamy, smooth carbonation and oily coating feeling.

O-In a world full of IIPAs, I found this one to be well above-average. I like that it is not a super citrusy me-too clone, but it does not beat you up with too much pine and bitterness, either. I mostly enjoyed the heavy, oily mouthfeel (although it did get a little old by the end of the can). This is a solid IIPA that I would definitely drink more of...if we could get it in Colorado

4.26/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Hazy, honey golden with a lumpy tan head that leaves sheets of crusty lace on the glass. The aroma is dank, fresh hops. Grapefruit and pine sap with caramel and toasted grain. The flavors are harmonious between resinous, dank hops, candied grapefruit rind and caramel slathered toast. Notes of mint and herbaceous evergreen linger on the palate, lots of christmas tree. Smooth, creamy and full bodied with prickly carbonation. My go to DIPA this summer for my hop fix Resin is a nearly perfect example of what I like in the style. A must try for hop heads.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz can, best by March 5, 2013. Served around 45F.

Pours quite hazy orange amber with a three finger white head that leaves tons of clumpy sticky drippy webs and rings of lacing and holds a small cap. Beautiful.

Aroma is some citrus hops, orange, grapefruit also very herbal, resinous and pungent, even a bit funky, some caramel malt as well. Good, but not great strength.

Flavor is orange marmalade, grapefruit, resinous hops, a little touch of some weird funky character, caramel malt, candy, mild sweetness, good bitterness. Some alcohol on the finish as well.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky, good carbonation.

Pretty good, very hoppy, quite intense. The slight underlying funkiness keeps it from being great, though.

12 oz can, a souvenir from EBF 2012. This one has a "best by" date of July 30th 2012, and was poured into my Duvel tulip.

Resin pours a crystal clear deep red, with some cherry highlights. Two fingers of cream colored foam swirl together atop the beer, before slowing creeping downwards.The lacing left behind is very nice, nearly sheetlike. There is definitely a bit of caramel in the nose, but overall the aroma reeks of dank pine hops, with a slight herbal edge. The caramel base is a bit more prominent in the flavor profile, before an aggressive bitter bite makes itself known. The pine and almost minty herb hop finish is potent, but the effect is just a little too blunted for my taste by the prodigious (for the style) caramel backbone. The body here is a little too full for my taste, I prefer my double IPAs to be a little more dried out. The carbonation, while not bad, could also stand to be a little more active. Resin's not a bad beer by any stretch, and I always appreciate a hop bomb that does something outside of the usual citrus/grapefruit, but Sixpoint's got a beer here that is shaded a little bit too much towards imperial amber to be considered a great DIPA.
