Had on tap at a resturant nearby the brewery. Pours copper, translucent, slighly off white head that leaves lacing. Plenty of pine and hop resin. Taste has ample bitterness, so light toast, and drying resin finish. Light to medium body.

Can @ Matt N’s wedding with Erica. Fresh wet earthy hop aroma and palate is the same. On the bitterer side of the spectrum. A tad dry but has some faint floral/fruity notes. OK.

On tap at Horseshoe Pub. Light amber with thin off-white head. Aromas of resin, peaches & caramel. Flavor more piney, with lime and caramel. A lttle flat and thin on the palate. Sometimes I think i should try more beers that aren’t IPAs, as there’s only so much to do in this (or any) style.
