A light-medium amber brew. Big frothy head out of the bottle. Nice floral hop aromas. Flavor is super hoppy, with a bit of nutty malts. Very bitter on the backside. Some bitter grapefruit and evergreen notes. Light lingering sweetness, but otherwise very bittering. 8 percent is well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber from Artale poured into a shaker. Bottled 12/2011. Pours a lightly cloudy dark orange with a thin bit of white head. Aroma of pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is medium-heavy bitter. Loads of pine sap with a little hint of grapefruit and caramel. Medium bodied with a thick yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long, very bitter finish. Overall, great. I’m glad I got this when it was still nice and fresh. I would love to try this on draft.
