Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours golden with a modest off-white head and a mixed hop aroma. There is a medium-bodied caramel malt flavor with an excellent hop profile that balances well with the malt. Nicely done.

22 Oz bottle poured. Pours a golden color with a fading head. Nice hop filled aroma. Throughout the year these guys will continue to have special releases, and I think this one is probably my favorite. Not really because itís a super fancy, different beer. Just because it tastes so good. Nice hop character. Quite refreshing. Delicious double.

Bottle pour at home, love when this beer comes around every year. Nice golden pour, bold citrus hop aroma. The flavor is smooth to start and ends with a solid bite, flavor full of pine, hopes & citrus. Really enjoy this beer.

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottleworks, Seattle; 8.9% ABV
Hazy golden color with compact head. Caramel and resiny hops aroma, mild, a bit dusty. Good body strength, but lean mouthfeel; strong caramel and toffee flavor with strong resiny hops, a touch of peanuts, some hop fruitiness. Some alcohol.
Not extremely fresh, but a good beer anyway.

Bonus from a recent trade. Sticky pine hop aroma and flavor. Chewy malt and candi sugar sweetness. Straight orange color. Remind a me of an orange cream sickle or one of those candy slices. Finish has a touch of spice bit a ton of pine hops again.
