3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sparkling amber with a fine light tan head. Malt and citrus aroma with pine and caramel notes. Flavor is a letdown, medium bitter and a muddle of citrus/pine/caramel. medium body. Decent but overall underwhelming.

Draft, Falling Rock pre-Gabf tapping party.
Solid, punchey nose of pine, resin, grass. Quite fresh, intoxicating and definately dry hopped.
Sprucey, piney, Centennial hops bliss in a glass. Fresh, dry and incredibly hoppy, quite medicinal as well with malt notes of caramel and biscuits.

Well the original was great and so was this one. Amber color, no head. Centennial pine aroma. Medium body, the flavor is all centennial even more than the original. Like drinking a pine tree, it was great!
