4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Incredibly pungent, powerful scent of piney hops. I don’t get much citrus, mostly pine, grass, a little floral. Bitter taste, strong, slightly sweet malty aftertaste. A powerful IPA. I’m surprised the hopheads haven’t gotten around to this en masse yet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pure amber pour with but a thin head. It transmits a downright seductive aroma of a wet, piney forest. It drinks with a big mushy, mashy character ... Spruce, blood orange, bark. (#4917, 1/16/2013)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney hop with hints of citrus on the nose gives way to a stalwart malt profile to balance the big hops. Great for skiing where you want hops and a little extra malt for good measure.

The aroma is malty and yeasty with caramel and a huge floral citrus hop. The appearance is copper gold with a big foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter bread finish. The palate is average. Overall pretty good.
