This brew pours a slightly hazy copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and toasted malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a resiny hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
