3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep bronze, curdled cream head. Nice piny nose, that immediately transports you deep into the evergreen forest. Flavor delivers on the pineyness without being resiny--which is a nice accomplishment in craftmanship. An impressive first beer from this upstart.
