3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Heavenly aroma of fresh cut pine, squeezed grapefruit, and biscuits. Expected auburn pour with a short white head that quickly turns to an oily surface. Clean taste, as if there were a mountain stream that poured APA. Pine, oranges, grapefruit fill the mouth, but are subdued by the malty, bready back. A light, refreshing beer that should be released in the summer, but has to wait until the autumn harvest.

Solid hoppy ale with a nice citrus and hop flavor. Not very strong but a decent addition.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thick orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of alcohol, hops, pine needles, and spices. The flavor is sweet malty and dominated by hops and pine needles.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful round characteristics, it’s got a soft-yet-intense hoppiness you only recognize if you’ve gnawed on the fresh stuff. The finish is muted, perhaps it’s been in the bottle too long.

On draft. Notable for its sweet, ESB-y qualities, due to "wet hopping" I am told. I’ll certainly have again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber, pours lightly hazy golden amber with a two finger white head, great lacing. Aroma of wet hops, grass, floral, pine and some caramel. Flavor is a bit lacking from the aroma, everything is present, just hiding behind a watery base - ho,hum. What starts strong just can’t seem to deliver when it comes to actually drinking this one...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
amber color with light head - very strong hop aroma that smells like hops on the vine - nice and smooth flavor with little bittering hops and mucho flavor/aroma hops - very strong grapefruit taste balances well with the malt - I expected this to be another of those overhopped monstrosities but it was very well balanced

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber color with a medium head. Very fresh hop aroma with some floral/grass, tobacco, peas and some earthiness - a very impressive bouquet of hop smells. Flavor is smooth and delicious - tasty hop flavors that are super fresh and leafy/flowery. Nice malt backing. Good finish and very refreshing. As good as any wet hop APA out there.
