Bottle at KGB. Pours a bit hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma holds sweet tropical fruits with floral and pine notes as well, a touch of malt. Taste is sweet resin and medium bitter, finish is mid-dry pine bitterness. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Very nice session beer.

Perfect for what it is, a session ale with great flavor with a low abv bite. Has a nice floral and pine aroma, and a crisp taste with a nice finish. Overall a good beer that serves a purpose.

Nice fruity nose.
Looks good, very little head.
Tastes not so good, there is a papery stale taste in there.
Very flat palate, nothing much.

Pours slightly hazy. Pretty big piney hops up front, but a little thin in the back. But I guess this is what you want in a session, I wish I tried this in the summer rather than the dead of winter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle, pours a golden orange amber with small head which quickly goes leaving a lacing throughout. The smell more than anything is fruity, pineapple and mango with a slight pine hop notes coming through. I was expecting this to be sweet from the smell but initially you are hit with some bitterness of the hops before the fruity and pine notes come through. Nothing is over-powering and it reminds me of the Sierra Nevada American Pale Ale in many ways (no bad thing at all in my book). It has a great mouth feel, enough flavours clings and it feels a bit chewy. As per it’s title this is the sort of thing I would be very happy to drink all day, too bad I only have the one bottle! Lovely stuff!

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with thin lacing. Piney aroma. Hoppy at first sip, but flavor falls off quick to almost nothing. Good easy drinking beer, appropriately named.
