BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States
sixpoint.com

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
RESIN slaps you with serious unfiltered dankness — sure it stings, but it feels so good at the same time. It’s hop candy up front, but drinks super clean for the size of the beer.
Key Ingredients Chinook and Centennial Hops are a little old school, with tons of resin and pine notes. RESIN uses a ton of different hops, for a massively complex hop bouquet.

I am not a huge IPA fan, although I do enjoy many. This IPA though, is absolutely phenomenal. Started with it as my first beer of the night, and despite its very high ABV, it was incredibly smooth. The color was a bright gold, with incredibly strong head retention. Smell was of rich pine, dank meadows, and all those wonderful hops. Taste was to match, plus incredibly clean finish so as not to overwhelm your palate. Wonderful!

Presentation: 12 oz. can with the canning date printed on the bottom. Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Two finger creamy head with average lacing. It has a hazy gold color.

Smell: Hoppy aromas of pine resin and citrus peel are the main attraction on the nose.

Taste: Spicy hop bitterness with pine resin and fruit notes and a healthy malt backbone. Quite balanced but leaning more towards the malty sweetness. It masks the pretty big 9.1% ABV well.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and medium bodied with high carbonation.

Overall: Those looking for a face-melting, dank, hop bomb will be disappointed by this beer. That said, those looking for a more balanced, but still hoppy experience will be pleased. Overall, a solid brew.

Pours out a dark honey color with a bit a haze to it. The head is thick with great retention. Lots of sticky lacing can be seen evenly around the glass.

The nose is mostly both piney and tropical. When you twirl the beer around that is when the tropical sweetness come out to balance out the bitter pine. Its solid.

Taste is nicely balanced. Its got a pretty strong piney citrus rind bitterness to it up front but there's a bit of a sweetness to it. And I mean a bit. This beer hits hard. Its for that hop fix. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Goes down smooth for a 9.1 abv beer.

I had this back in 2016 and forgot how good it was...enjoyed one tonight with my wife. Great hoppy bitterness but balanced. Forgot about the 9.1 ABV...shes's driving home!

I always come back to this beer, after many years - perfect balance of malt and hops. Extremely classy west coast inspiration. I'll take this way ahead of these NEIPAs from my local neighborhood in VT.
