Had this one last night, I remember it being on the sweet side and not super bitter. Although it wasnt exactly what i was expecting, I really enjoyed it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich golden hue, slight haze with a big white head. Smells piney, spicy and floral. Spicy, piney and resinous up front with moderate carbonation, fades to nice floral taste. Excellent lacking all the way down the glass. Medium body. Aftertaste piney on the tongue and a spiciness lingers in the throat. Heavy caramel notes emerge as it warms up. Grapefruit rind/pith on the tinge in the aftertaste.

Re-rate, 1/20/13: 12oz bottle, split with Jay. Wow, this bottle is an embarrasingly blatant rip-off of Stoneís. Itís different from the old paper label, itís a green printed-on label.. The fact that they are both from the same town makes it even ballsier. No date on the bottle found. Mostly clear amber - orange color. Good thin white head, some lace. Orange citrus and grass-clippings in the nose, some odd earthiness. Little zest, light bitter, mostly sweet. Medium / bigger body, light, smooth carbonation. Sweet caramel malts, slightly sticky fjnish. Not very good. Only got worse and worse as I went. For something that seems to aspire to be a Stone knock-off, this totally misses the mark

I had a few of these on a recent trip to Florida. Itís hazy amber. A very hoppy nose. The flavor is on the sweet malt side with a good dose of hops in the finish. I find the flavors kind of "muddy" but a generally good beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Erupted from the bottle, but quickly settled. The beer is light yellow-ish amber with a frothy head. The aroma is clearly defined by the hops, but has an odd character -- somehow medicinal, in a childrenís elixir kinda way. That sticks with me as I drink -- the hoppiness coming across in a less than idyllic manner, a mixture of over-ripe banana, pineapple, and wet grass. (#4422, 12/29/2011)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours a murky golden/orange with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet and tart citrus, candy, malt, and slight pine. Taste is of resinous bitter pine, citurs, and tropical fruits, with a balanced malt presence. Alcohol is covered very well, nice!
