It was about one year ago when Sixpoint Craft Ales began releasing their four year-round beers in cans, and they’ve recently announced a new addition to the core lineup, Resin.  Named after the resinous buildup in hop cones when they reach maturity, this Imperial IPA of 9.1% ABV and 103 IBU starts with a strong hop bite which then gives way to a caramel back and a finish of pine.

“Sixpoint Resin was one of the most exciting projects we’ve undertaken recently, and I’m thrilled to share it with our customers.  We wanted to deliver a story about the organic chemical responsible for these flavor sensations everyone is enjoying. This was a very extensive project where we anatomically analyzed the various features of the hop cone, and explored the botanical feature that makes it all happen — sticky resin oozing from the interior!” -Shane Welch, Founder and President Sixpoint Craft Ales

Resin is now available where Sixpoint brews are sold for $8.99 per 4-pack of sleek tall cans.

Sixpoint Craft Ales is located in Brooklyn, NY and was founded in 2004.  Sixpoint currently distributes to California, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, and Washington DC.
