Pour on tap at the brewpub, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, pine, slight wet hop notes going into a slight soapy note, hints of grain, biscuit, bread, slight earth, spice notes come through as well, pretty nondescript. Taste is a mix of soap, grass, grain, hints of pine and earth, some wet hop notes go into biscuit, bread, slight caramel, touch of spice, finishing bitter, slightly dry.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours Clear amber, medium off white head, creamy, great lacing. Aroma its quite weak with floral and pine notes. Flavor is a bit stronger with herb and pine, along with some bready malt notes. Lightly sweet and a light bitter finish. Medium body, bit watery. I suspect that this has been around too long and has oxidized.

Had while camping out for Surly Darkness Day. Might have been a bit too cold, but I was not getting a very big aroma or taste. It was very light on the pine aroma/flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the source... Pours a mostly transparent semi-bright coppery hue and topped with a solid frothy white head... Soft citrus hop profile in the, a bit of pale grains and a touch of pear. Not too bright... Flavors are more of the same without any true clean or bright hop profile. Pale grains with a mild sweetness. Touch of grass in the backend. Just shy of medium bodied with an adequate level of carbonation. Somewhat fluffy mouthfeel.
