In this blog, Sixpoint Resin is going to be the feature beer. Sixpoint Brewery is from Brooklyn, New York City which was founded in 2004. They brew several different beer styles and put a twist on them. I have blogged on this brewery several times. I believe the only beer that I am not a really big fan of their Rightlous Ale. I need to retry that beer again. I am not a big fan of Rye Ales. Asides that I really enjoyed the rest of their line up and it includes this beer. Let us get into this beer.
Sixpoint Resin is an Imperial India Pale Ale. It has a nice copper color with a little white head in the beer. It has a heavy citrus to piney smell to it. The taste is a sweet carbonation citrus with the dry hop aftertaste. It is very drinkable for the style of beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.sixpoint.com):
ResinWhatever flames upon the night. Man’s own resinous heart has fed. A beer that celebrates the extraction of hop resin for a concentrated yet balanced brew. View the story of the Resin below.

In closing, I am a huge hop head and this lives up to the hop muscle that I am looking in an Imperial India Pale Ale. I love the overall beer taste. It has a nice malty backbone which is important with these Imperial and Double IPAs. There is not too many craft breweries that has done this right to their beers. Some breweries can not even get their normal India Pale Ale right. I love how it is drinkable with a serious big punch of 9.1%. This is my go to Imperial IPA and it is pretty much always in my refrigerate. Go find this beer and I will be disappointed if you do not fall in love with it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
