3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can. Nose is very woody, dry with light citrus, caramel. Pours amber-orange with red highlights throughout, avg carb and a lacing, rocky beige head. Watery light body with caramel, lots of soapy / cleansing hops, low resin and bitterness, juicy citrus, plenty of earth and dull (decomposing) pine [actually, spruce does seem to be more on the money somehow], some spice. There’s some depressing sag in the caramel and woody/earthy hop character, but clean and easily-downed. Just wouldn’t want a second.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. 9/16/14. Pours hazy amber with a fluffy, dense off-white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, grass, spruce, juicy, slightly sweet, caramel; crisp and hoppy (as advertised!). Taste is a lot bigger than expected, huge up front flavor explosion; citrus, lemon peel, grapefruit, spruce, pine, hint of dry pineapple, bitter caramel, some roastiness; finish is long and bitter, grapefruit rind and a hint of roast malt. Nice lacing throughout. Full bodied and chewy mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Incredibly well-crafted.
