The beer, which comes in a tall, green, 12-ounce can, arrives with a vengeance. It is among the more aggressive imperial India pale ales out there, measuring 103 International Bitterness Units (the human tongue cannot distinguish bitterness above 80 or 90 IBUs).
Resin is darker than most double IPAs -- deep red and cloudy, with a short, frothy head. The grapefruit-and-grass aroma hits you like a fist, as does the first sip. It's not one-dimensional, though. A dry, caustic grapefruit bitterness is followed quickly by the beer's strong malt presence, and then by citrus, alcohol burn, and another dose of mouthpuckering bitterness that lasts and last. Serious business, this Resin.
Sixpoint Resin is 9.1 percent alcohol by volume. A four-pack of 12-ounce cans costs $10.
