Resin is an American Double IPA by Sixpoint Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.
The DIPA pours a clear, rust orange and is topped by a very thick head of bone-white foam. The pillowy cap takes its time while dissolving, leaving behind patches of sticky lace.
The aroma is faint with a scent of piney hops.
The palate follows the nose and immediately strikes hard with an intense blast of pine and hop resin. But a malty backbone of sweet tropical fruit and caramel add just enough balance before this hop bomb finishes with bitter grapefruit and peppery hops.
Its feel has a medium body and moderate carbonation. Finishes dryly.
Clocking in at 100-plus IBUs, Resin has plenty of bite for thirsty hopheads to enjoy. Connoisseurs will also appreciate the beer’s gentle balance just how effectively its lofty 9.1% ABV is masked. So be careful with this one. But enjoy!
