look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Best before 9/11/13, can poured into Spiegelau tulip glass.

Orange amber hue, a tad hazy, big creamy eggshell white head with great lacing and retention.

Smells of piney grassy hoppy goodness. Not very fruit-forward, but thats fine.

Taste is very bitter with pine-forward hops. Grassy and floral. A hint of alcohol esters on the back end. Dry finish. Malty heavyness but not sweet. A tad unbalanced in this regard. However I really do enjoy the hop presence here.

Creamy medium-to-full body is very good. Carbonation is a touch high. Dry finish.

Overall a great DIPA, certainly a go-to for me, when I'm in the mood for a piney bitter bomb at least. Nice that its in a can too. For the price, $10/4pack, it's pretty solid. Won't be the last time I enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A clear deep beer about copper in color Resin develops just more than a finger's height of yellow-tinted head. It's pretty rocky and rests on top of the beer for the entire session, slowly fading but never completely, leaving strong patching in its wake.
The aroma is out as soon as the crack is sounded. This is a hefty, strongly hopped beer, but with lots of malt sweetness balancing it out. Resin is right. There's pith, but not too harsh. Lots of pine and some floral bitterness is strong along with citrus ring. The caramel and breads from malts make for good depth.
Pine resin, orange zest, grapefruit rind, floral and leafy notes, all the hops bitterness is there. The malts are too, letting the hops run the show but keeping it even. There's even something like honey to it.
The feel makes this beer a pleasure to drink. It's smooth, but that comes off a hard biting crispness that's never lost. A chalky sort of dryness comes through but the sweetness keeps it from going too dry. The medium body, almost full, supports all the hefty structure. Carbonation keeps it even but lively all the way.

12 oz can poured into a tulip “Best before” date of October 12, 2013.

Resin pours a hazy golden color with a massive foamy, frothy head that leaves massive chunks of lacing behind. Tons of hop haze and sediment in the beer.

The beer's name is a good description of its aroma. Even for all the hoppiness there, there's still balance – there's some tropical fruit and citrus: mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and others. Definitely lots of pine needles/resin and maybe even some orange. There is some bready, caramel sweetness from the malt, but think of this as distilled hop goodness. As the beer warms, the sweetness ramps up as well as the alcohol.

Resin is devilishly smooth but incredibly complex. With lots of fruity hop flavors – orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango – at the front of the palate, there is no mistaking the identity of this beer. Massive and bursting with hop flavors, it takes no prisoners. The hop flavors on the front move into a brief malty middle before a huge assault of pine, grapefruit, and spicy herbal flavors on the finish that linger long. A monster of an IIPA, but incredibly drinkable and balanced.

The mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy with crisp carbonation on the finish, which is long and bitter. The alcohol comes more in the form of warmth than actual flavor.

A very nice IIPA. This is definitely putting the lupulin resin on a pedestal, and it works well. Not super aggressive, but definitely strong.

Pours a very hazy amber color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is great. Big piney resin and grapefruit aroma. Taste definitely does not disappoint, but it is not for the faint of heart. Big time bitterness. Resin is high with a juicy grapefruit thrown in. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. There is some mild astringency at the end.

Best by date Aug 10. Pour into pint glass. Smallish white dense head with impressive retention and lacing.
Nice looking beer , hazy golden with orange highlights at edges.
Smell is piney earthy hops with some grapefruit pith in background.
Taste follows the smell with good malt base of juicy grapefruit, mango quickly followed by hops bite that intensifies throughout the finish. Makes me want more. Warming only improves the flavors . Well done Brooklyn.
Alcohol is well masked . Careful ,this one comes on strong. One of my favorite DIPA's.
Guess I've had about 5 or 6 now do I've got a lot more to learn

Comes in slim can, pours with a thicker consistency and thick head that last long. Amber gold hazy look. Awesome fruity smell rounded with stong hops. Alcohol is well blended in the taste and not noticable even in aftertase. A must have Imperial IPA, on an expansive side though.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. can poured into a tulip

A- Dark, golden honey, with some turbidity in the body. The head retains at a 1/2" with multiple rings of lacing by the end, and is just barely off-white in color.

S- Sweet malt background, sweet bread, with a resinous and citrusy hop character. Resin is the perfect name for this beer. A slight booze aroma is also in the nose.

T- Bready, slight caramel in the malt profile, followed by a big piney/resinous hop flavor.

M- Medium body, a little thick, with a sticky dry finish, however, not as dry and bitter as I was expecting in the finish. The bitterness in the feel, though, seems to mask the warmth and burn of the alcohol.

O- Very drinkable for a beer this size. Bitterness isn't an extreme, which I'm a big fan of. This is a great (and perfectly named) DIPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

The beer comes in an orange yellow color with a frothy two finger head.

The aroma is of bready malts and an earthy resin aroma. There's also grapefruit citrus too.

Having had so many West Coast IPAs, this is a great change. There's a juicy grapefruit and tropical fruit note, but then the malt and resin flavors dominate. It has big pine and bite on the mouth, but in a good way. It's almost spicy on the back of the throat as well. The finish is very bitter on this one, of pine, earthiness, resin.

The beer has a good medium body.

It's cool that this beer comes in a smaller can like a Red Bull for the appropriate ABV it is. A really solid DIPA from Sixpoint.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Darker golden orange color for a DIPA. About a finger of head on the pour. Definitely on the lower end of the carbonation scale, not active at all in the glass. Consistent lacing on the edges of the glass. Looks delicious.

Smell: Tons of bitter hops and potent pine. The hops come off very spicy, really peaks up the aroma. Saturated tangerines and mandarin oranges. A slight malt base can be found but definitely a pine and hop dominated aroma.

Taste: The taste goes in a very different direction then I expected after the aroma. The front is a very smooth hop flavor. Honey, straw, melon, watermelon, and other bright fruits. The piney bitterness comes through more toward the end of the beer and on the finish.

Mouthfeel: A unique mixture of fruit hop presence and sticky pine and resin.

Overall: A really good DIPA. Sets itself apart from other with its unique differences in aroma and taste. The finish is easy pine and some bright fruits which leaves a pleasant memory of this beer behind.

Pours a hazy dark amber with a frothy white head which leaves a nice cap. Aroma of slight grapefruit but more of an earthy pine hop smell. Flavor is predominately floral, piney hops with a fair amount of bitterness. There is a little sweet malt in the background with a hint of citrus but not much. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty good IPA overall, not as well balanced as some but refreshing and flavorful.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Can pours into my pint with a thunderous frothy white head of 2 fingers thick. Body is relatively clear and golden, with little visible in the way of carbonation. Looks thinner than what I'd expect. I wonder if this is intended to be sipped from the can, as if this is New York's equivalent of Heady. I'm pouring most of this in the glass nonetheless.
Smells nice and dank, resinous, pine, some citrus fruit. Nice.
Tasting this has the hops piling into my mouth and creating a warming sensation, juicy with bitterness I expected, along with a thick & sticky mouthfeel and more carbonation than it shows. Very nice balance of bread and caramel sweetness along with the dominant hops, and the aftertaste is superb with the fruit note remaining amidst the rest of the flavor sensation. This tasty hop creation lives up to its name quite well.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bought at The Beer Temple in Chicago, IL. $9 four pack. Drink by December 17th 2013 ... I'd assume that this is pretty fresh, since that's over 5 months away. I just poured this one into a standard pint.

Appearance: A slightly hazy yellow-orange color. Two finger off-white head stays for awhile before turning into just a thin layer on top. The lacing's pretty patchy, but I really enjoy that mini-head that floats on top.

Smell: Super sweet aroma that's easily the highlight of this beer. Resin's an appropriate name ... the resinous sort of piney hops are definitely the highlight mixed with almost a cotton candy sweetness. There may be some of the ever-popular non-descript tropical fruit aromas as well.

Taste/feel: Like a guava or mango sort of flavor almost all the way with a lot of sweetness at the start. At the middle and back of the mouth, this explodes with the resin/pine character, and there's a solid bitterness. While there's a pretty big herbal kind of bitterness (103 IBUs), Resin seems to get less bitter with the more I sip it. The mouthfeel is pretty lightly carbonated with a medium/light sort of feel. I don't mind the feel, since this could easily be cloying if it were much thicker, but I'd like a bit more carbonation, maybe. Burps (yes, I'm factoring in burps) are just an awesome piney/earthy flavor. As the beer warms up, I get a pretty distinct caramel or toffee sort of note in the aftertaste.

Very good beer. I feel like it drinks a little flat, but that's a pretty minor problem I have with a beer that's pretty outstanding as a whole. It has a nice look to it, there's a great sweet piney aroma, and it tastes better than a lot of other IIPAs I've had. If this were available in Michigan, I'd get it pretty often.

EDIT: As I made my way through my four-pack, I decided this beer just isn't as great as I made it out to be. The alcohol taste is a bit too harsh to completely enjoy the beer. Still pretty tasty, but not worth the rating that I had it at originally.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A-Pours a deep golden brown color with a vibrant white, hakf finger head that retains fairly well and expands greatly as I swirl the glass. Foam coats the whole glass as I sip and leaves a lovely latticework of lacing

S-Pungent hops, floral, grapefruit, dry and raw pine straw. Booziness warms up the back of the nose.

T-Salty at the front along with the grapefruit. Not much nuance in the taste, as the tannic fruit and hops and saltiness overpower the rest. That's not to say it's not good. Sometimes a raw hopomb is just what you want.

MF-Watery and a bit overcarbonated. Still very refreshing and easy to drink

O-A damn good DIPA. Hop forward taste but it smells exceptional and is very drinkable. Alcohol is well hidden.

Best by 12/17/12. Fuck Best by dates, tell me when this shit was canned!!!!

Pours a brilliantly clear honey-gold.

A: Light Herbal and spicy notes, with a waft or two of the danks. Maybe faint citrus but probly in my head...and coz I just drank a heady ;)

T: Immediately notice the strong bitterness on the back of the palate. Almost an astringent chemical bitterness, that is rounded off just in the nick of time by a pleasant toffee sweetness. Malt backbone is subtle and just enough to stave off the harsh and herbal bitterness. As I drink more I get pine and a subtle floral bitterness - somewhat akin to how a hibiscus flower smells very floral but if you were to munch on it and get a bitter earthiness your brain would be confused. "notes of hibiscus flower"...yes, lets coin that. Finishes slightly boozy and harshly bitter. Reminds me of hoptimum.

M: Pretty full, but somewhat slick as well. Velvety carbonation that is smooth at the start, but leaves you with a prickle. Tongue spasms at the end, just like hoptimum.

O: I like this beer, I really do. It is like a less intense hoptimum. A peppery, spicy, boozy, bitter sonofabitch that takes your tongue on a ride. Love it. I think hoptimum is definitely better executed, but thats why Ken gets the big bucks.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Best before 10/13/13.

Appearance: Opaque orange and honey hue with a fluffy three finger off-white head. Looks at home in a tulip glass.

Aroma: Orange citrus but not too in-your-face. Something slightly dank in there as well.

Taste: Starts with moderate bitterness and develops an orange nectar hop flavor with some definite earthy tones in there as well. There is a juicy element to the hop character that is hard to place but the effect is hard to miss. Given the name and description on the can I was expecting Resin to be hot and piney but the end result good. I was also expecting somewhat of a malt bomb but the grain takes a bit of a backseat and allows the juiciness from the hops to rule the palate. And it only gets better as you get further through the beer. Each time it hits your palate it becomes a more and more defined flavor. The 9.1% ABV sneaks through as a heat in the back of the throat. Easygoing finish and a hot aftertaste with some bitterness lingering.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body with very smooth carbonation. The juicy factor of this beer makes it highly drinkable and not nearly as cloying or sticky as the name would suggest. Almost refreshing at times.

Final Thoughts: I was worried buying this beer because I had no idea how old it was (despite a 'best before' date). After reviewing Resin I look into it and find out that this one was canned in February. Glad I didn't know it was so old at the time of the purchase because it has held up quite well. Would I drink it again? Sure, especially if Sixpoint switches to a 'canned on' date.

12oz can into a tulip glass
Best by: Oct 13 2013

Thanks to Finatic for sending this one over as an extra!

A: Pours a hazy apricot orange with 3plus fingers width of slightly off white colored head. Moderate retention but it dissipates down fairly quickly. Leaves tons of cool honeycomb lacing.

S: Grapefruit, citrus rind, resinous piney hops, floral. Sweet malts bring it all together.

T: Follows the nose, except even more citurs forward with grapefruit, lemon zest, more subtle orange. A big degree of sweet malts balance things out nicely, there's almost a sugary sweetness. Piney bitterness lingers on the finish.

M/D: Full bodied, carbonation appropriate, ABV very well masked, drinkability well above average. Nice mouthfeel.

O: Overall, a very good DIPA. Strong hop notes, but very well balanced. Very good from top to bottom. Well done.

Poured from a 12oz can, best before 13 Oct 2013, courtesy of Greywulfken. Presumably pretty fresh -- thanks! :)

A: Pours a mostly clear deep golden color with a finger of fluffy white head that dissipates to a spotty film sustained by sparse bubbling. Lacing is spotty but plentiful down the glass.

S: Great aroma of fresh, earthy and citrusy character explodes from the can upon opening and ramins strong in the glass. Upon warming, alcohol begins to show through in the nose, but the predominant aromas of hops and sweet malts remain strong. A nice smelling beer.

T: Sadly, probably my least favorite part of this beer, and not aided too much by the dryness of the mouthfeel. Strong and sharp citric bite up front leads into a little malt sweetness balancing out a ton of bitterness. Hops provide citrus character, a flavor I can only describe as green (in a plant way), and an almost onion-like flavor. On warming, alcohol also shows through strongly. The dryness of the finish compounds with the bitterness to leave an otherwise crisp finishing beer less refreshing than I was hoping it might be.

M: Nice medium body fills the mouth aided by reasonable carbonation that could be a little stronger. Fairly dry on the finish. Nicely crisp.

O: A good beer, but not one I'm itching to revisit. The hop profile in this beer is unique among IPAs I've had, and I think with fair reason. It is really close to being nice and refreshing, particularly for a 9abv beer, but the bitterness and dryness really left me wanting more refreshment than I was getting.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a footed tulip.

A: Dark golden hue. Lots of rising effervescence. Pours a 1+ finger, bubbly whit-ish head. Settles pretty quickly leaving a distinct foam blanket, and a thick beer ring. Pretty nice spider web lacing.

S: Pine resin with a bit of a floral character. Simple yet pristine.

T: Really bitter and piny and just a little sweet balance. Like the nose.... simple and pristine.

M: Syrupy and bitter. Mouth puckering. Dry finish.

D: Sip and savor. The character will dictate it.

Atmosphere is pretty strong. Nice hue, lots of carbonation, great head, and some very nice lacing. Floral pine resin in the nose. Bitter syrupy pine with a slight sweet tone. Simplicity is sometimes the best. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

If drinking a liquid onion sounds good to you then this beer is right up your alley. The beer looks and smells like a typical IPA, with assertive hops, bread and a mild fruity aroma. The taste is completely different however, overpowering onion flavor. Pretty gross really. I finished it, but won't be getting this again.

From can into a Pint glass

A - A murky yellow-orange - very promising color. No yeast in bottle but almost looks unfiltered.

S - very green, super fresh hoppy smell. smells like the hops were just removed before I put it under my nose. Citrus, lemons

T - Intensely green, fresh, clean, hoppy, and a little sailine from the water used? Like most double/imperials as I drink it and my tongue gets desensitized from the initial rush of hop flavor over time it gives way to a very pleasant citrus/hop heaviness that i really enjoy.

M - Medium, light carb on tongue, great medium length finish.

O - really solid imperial/double ipa, drinkable with or without food, great summer beer.

A - Pours a very light golden/straw yellow color with a beautiful light tan almost yellowish 1 finger head. Retention is good, lacing is phenomenal.

S - Light citrus aromas, slightly resinous pine, lemon, sweet sugary malts.

T - Lots of citrus rinds and resinous pine initially, dry bitterness follows through the aftertaste and lingers a good bit afterwards. So simple but so fresh and refreshing tasting/drinking.

M - Definitely medium bodied but the flavor profile and dryness make it very drinkable, perfect level of carbonation. Really loving this.

O - Could pound this delicious 9.1%er. Super refreshing drinkable and awesome flavor! Big fan.

Date: 06/19/2013
Type: 12oz. slim can
Vintage: 2013, best by July 9th, 2013
Glass: Heady Stemless (Why not?)

Pours a hazy golden in color w/ a 1/2 finger white head that left light sticky lacing. Aromas of pine, mango, and fresh cut PVC pipe resin. The flavor started w/ caramel malt sweetness up front, leading into a touch of mango, and finishes with moderate resinous bitterness. Medium bodied and somewhat lush, but needs more carbonation and guessing this was mashed in at around 152 degrees and maybe could have been mashed a bit higher to create a little fuller body. However, additional carbonation might be the only remedy needed. Pretty drinkable stuff.

Overall, good solid DIPA, but nothing mind blowing or really all that unique. I would drink this again without hesitation, but I would prefer more enhanced citrus notes and a slightly better mouth feel. In the end, good beer though from Sixpoint.

I really like the head on this beer... Great retention, but larger bubbles than I'm used to seeing from IPAs; but the lacing is fairly poor. The aroma is very floral and super hoppy but with a candy-like sweetness behind. The taste is great for the style, but this isn't my IPA. Too much of piney/resinous hop character. I admit that it is well balanced and has the great hop forwardness people enjoy in DIPAs; however, I just can't get into this beer. I find this beer a tad thin for a DIPA too. I do enjoy the hop bite on my tongue. I'll definitely suggest this beer for people who like more pine or resin or earth in their IPAS.

Resin is a fantastic looking DIPA. Huge head, hazy orange body with visible carbonation, it's what I want to see when I pop open a double IPA. The aroma is big and sweet, with sweet tropical hops and sweet caramel malts. The taste isn't quite as sweet as the nose, with some more hop bitterness kicking its way through. It's a balanced bitterness, as the bitter and sweet aspects from the hops are kinda in a tug-of-war the whole time. The mouthfeel is on the heavy side and moderately carbonated, and the drinkability is great. Overall, Sixpoint Resin is a great DIPA.

Second go of this review, you can see my original below that came out to a 3-3.25 overall from a few years ago. I gave this one another try and I must say I'm VERY impressed.. i'm not sure if the recipe changed or they just scaled it better but its most definitely worth heading out to grab. The taste is completely changed from a overly sweet and sticky mess to a upfront punch of pine bitterness that is aggressive but well balanced with a nice malt backbone that is barely there.. Its a smooth and piney/citrusy bitterness overall that I love.



Appearance: Deep gold with reddish tint and a brownish/dirty head that is sticky
Smell: Caramel malt with alcohol in the background. Not a whole lot citrus and pine, mostly sweet sugar... you can sense that it will be a sticky beer
Taste: Sweet, caramel, sugary, malty, hoppy but not really as much as I would have thought. Compared to other DIPAs its more sweet, creamy and sticky.. good taste, ok mouthfeel with less than average carbonation but alcohol well hidden

Overall: Hard to find anything spectacular in this beer. Its good, I would buy it again but wouldn't seek it out aggressively
