Earthy and piney hop nose, caramel, decent. The appearance is a clear straw yellow, slight orange tinge, white head. The flavor is again pine, earth, caramel. Medium in body. Piney, resiny hop bittering at the finish. Pretty standard stuff, but decent

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crisp amber and copper tinted body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall just off-white head with a little bit of a bronze glow. Aroma of grassy and cardboardie hops with a hint of malt, pine and caramel - not too pungent. Medium-bodied; Assertive herbal and earthy malt and hops with some light bitterness, a lot of floral flavours and a bit of herbs as well. Aftertaste shows some light depth and assertiveness, this one is mostly mild and lacking conviction. Overall, not such a great beer and showing hardly any hops at all. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Good Beer in New York, New York on 19-July-2014 for US$2,39 sampled at home in Washington just a week later on 26-July-2014.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Pour. Clean reddish orange with white head in glass. Aroma is lead by pine resin and orange. Medium body. Orange carries on from nose, taking on a semi-sweet, borderline cream like taste. More pine and suggestions of grapefruit. Caramel malts in the background. Nice, but could use some smoothing.
