"Has the hop strength to convince you it’s a double, just without the alcohol or residual sweetness. Really spot on for what they were going for...pine sap and citrus through and through. Hell, I’m probably low balling this at 4.2. Really nice!"

Clean, mild pine noise. Cloudy pale gold. Excellent lacing. Solid bitter start, mixed with pine. Fades slowly to bittering hops. Moderate carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light golden pour with white head. Aroma is crisp with citrus and pine. No alcohol detected and fairly light bodied for the abv, crisp, bitter but not overly. Pine, citrus, white bread malt backing. Easy drinking, okay.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at SB. Pours a crystal clear medium amber with bright golden brown edges. Creamy light whitish head that sticks around. They’re not kidding about the pine; the nose hits all the pine notes--fresh needles in the forest, fresh cut wood in the shop, and that darker pine resin note. Creamy light body with lively carb. Deep pine notes on the mid palate; well-shown needles and fresh cut soft wood, washed out in a crisp resiny bite on the finish. If you’re building a hop flavor wheel, this is probably your outermost anchor for the pine spoke.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, pours a nice gold yellow. Nice hop, pine, citrus nose. Attack is a bit weak compared to the nose. Still a very nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Toronado. Sheila is super piney with some gummi bear (or worm). Pour is fairly hazy light yellow. Taste is piney with a lot of the fruitiness. Interesting flavor. Really can’t get passed the fruitiness tho. Dry light finish. Some alcohol noted.
