Cloudy orange, ring of foam. Smells like caramel, grass, and a hint of grape. Aroma is kind of winey, caramel, and grassy hops. I got a little apple and pear, as well.

16 oz can poured a clear golden amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of straw, earthiness, pine and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness and light citrus with a crisp dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

16 oz. can, consumed on 5-17-14. The can overflowed a bit upon opening for whatever reason, but I wonít hold that against the beer. Fresh, yeasty, juicy aroma features scents of melon, orange, rhubarb, tart grape, honey, chamomille, and minerals. The smell reminds me of honey-covered challah or apples and honey. Strong aroma but nonetheless not a great one. Pours a hazy brass with a large amount of long-lasting, thick, uneven, beige head. Nice liquid but even better head. Juicy and pretty sweet taste is similar to aroma. Flavors of honey, floral hops, honey nut cream cheese, and a touch of black pepper. Light dryness and a touch of black pepper spiciness in the finish. Lightly dry, bitter, and spicy aftertaste. Light body. A bit of liveliness, but generally a forgettable and subpar palate. Big Wood Jack Pine Savage is not a bad beer, and the aroma and flavor are strong, but itís not really my cup of tea.

Tap. Dark gold with good white head. Hoppy but has a off grapefruit smell. Flavor is hoppy but finish is flat and slightly off. Not great.

AWISLguy (1224) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2014
16oz can from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours an unclear pale yellowish orange with a white head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has light citrus and light pine, a bit yeasty with some biscuity malts. But light. Taste is of lightly sweet biscuity malts, some lemon, some earthiness and a bit of pine. Light to medium bodied. Finishes somewhat sweet. This one did not do it for me; it sorta meandered around in a not unpleasant way, without making any statement.

Lemke10 (767) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2014
This pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a foamy, beige head. The aroma is slightly malty with a hint of bitter hops. The taste is pretty decent for a pale ale. There is a texture with a well blended mix of grains and hops. This makes for easy drinking with a slight bitter finish.

On tap. The appearance is impressive, opaque gold color, suggest more flavor and aroma than is actually there. Not a ton of hops but you know they are there, with some pine flavor. Very dry.
