“RESIN is not about fearing the mysterious and potent force of the hop cone, it’s about embracing it. Feel it coat your tongue, tango with the malt and slap some bitter sense into you. Yes it stings, but it feels so good at the same time.”
– Sixpoint Resin can
Origin: Brooklyn, USA
Beer type: Double IPA
Appearance: Dark amber

*Please be advised cans of Resin are incorrectly labelled as 32 units. Each can of Resin is 3.2 units. This will be corrected for the next batch of cans from the USA.
Resin is an ode to the sticky essence of hops.
If you glanced past it above – this is a 9.1% ABV beer.
It’s not the sort of brew you’d want to knock back at pace – it’s one to savour, sip and slow down over.
Sixpoint’s self-named ‘mad scientists’ have extracted the nectar from every precious citrus, pine, dank and herbal cone and channelled it all into one vessel.
If, at this point, you’re sitting back on your bar stool in confusion – we can assure you that it’s an experiment you’ll want to repeat.
It’s the gooey chocolate cake of beers – rich and sticky and likely to leave you feeling indulged.
The Sixpoint ethos runs through this beer:
Beer is culture.
This is a beer which is brewed for beer-drinkers. It’s something new and different, ready to be received in the UK exclusively by Wetherspoon customers.
We’ve been working with Sixpoint for several years, and the brewery has a rich story which starts in the heart of the craft beer explosion in America.
For a sip of what it’s all about, we’d recommend taking the plunge on this brew.
