(bottle) Big beige head and a cloudy copper body. Nice fruity (lemon, grapefruit), floral hop aroma, moderately sweet. Medium bodied, silky mouthfeel. A hint of caramel sweetness at the very front, by overall very dry and hoppy. Elements of grass, pine, citrus (orange), some herbs/spices.

Bottle @ Odense Tasting, May 2011. Thanks to Hallinghansen. Pours cloudy orange with a lasting white head. Pine cones, grapefruit and orange. Very hoppy - not extreme and a tad of sweetness. No cloying malty caramel sweetness makes this a winner. Lovely . .

Down in the basement of meridian Pint I find myself in the mountainous pine tree forest. Pine, citrus, floral dominate. A great looking copper pale ale.

Didn’t check the release # on this...didn’t realize it would vary so much. Amber in color. Had a vegetal hop aroma and some sweet malts. It tasted fruity/citrusy, with resinous hops. Bready malts. Little boozy. Firm bitterness.
