Christmas present deuce, release #52. Pour looked exactly like apple cider from a mill, hazy, dense light brown. Very thick eggshell head that was huge and settled to a quarter inch. Scent is subtle but what can be discerned is juicy citrus hops. Thick, frothy mouthfeel. Pretty evenly blended, a little more bitter than sweet. Bitter pine hop taste, not too strong though. Finish is more bitter an pretty dry. Good beer but nothing outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro on tap at Hopcat Detroit. Aroma is hops, sweet fruit and pine. Appearance is hazy golden, white head. Taste is great, a nice balance of sweet fruit and bitter pine. The nitro may enhance this. Mouthfeel is great, thick nitro pours are wonderful. Overall, an impressive brew.

Bill Becker (564) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Pours a clear gold with plenty of foam that lasts and does well with the lacing. The smell is is a mix of caramel malt and grain with the hops well represent by pine. Even Steven on the first few sips between the malt and hops but I notice the alcohol kick more. The malt is sweet but also has a grain like character to it. The hops have pine but to me, it has more of an aspirin like bitterness. Close to full bodied with medium carbonation. This is decent but a rather difficult beer to drink not only taste wise but because the alcohol is intrusive. I am not likely to revisit.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2015
On tap, at the pig, DC. It pours a hazy orange colored body under a creamy, finger thick off-white head. Lacing. The aroma is mostly resiny and piney, with grapefruit and a malty touch. It’s full bodied, lightly warming and pleasantly carbonated. Quite bitter. Grapefruit, resin and pine cones. Lasting finish. Not of the quenching kind, but it’s a nice and tasteful one. 150619

markducommun (449) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Lightly clouded orange with a tan head. Light citrus, honey, heavier pine resin. Very bitter, offset by substantial sweetness. Medium body, some chewiness, some light oiliness, good amount of alcohol heat. Pretty good.

scotchzombie (429) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Pours a hazy brown-orange that looks a grey-green as it pours. Foamy off-white head that fades quick and delivers wet lacing. Aroma is a wonderful sweet floral citrus. Taste flips to a bitter lean. Slightly tangy with a jammy citrus sweetness that resolves into a super-dry and tight bitterness. There's a caramel malt backbone in there too. Even had a chocolate-like burp. Truly unique and, truly, epic.
