4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014-05-01, draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, 16oz, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Fruity, resiny, abrasive but too heavy.
2014-02-27, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Amber color, clear, with creamy head. Sweet and fruity beer, with a good mix of malt and caramel, medium sweetness, a bit candyish, strong bitterness, hop resins, cedar peel, and a mild animal character present in the aroma and flavor.
Good, potent, but I wouldn’t drink much of it.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Clear golden color, massive thick white head with solid lacing. Aroma of intense centrifuged pine needles. Taste has enough pine to turn you inside out. Shocking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It’s a hazy, dark golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head. Lots of hops in the aroma, green pine cones, resins and citrus peel, and also a touch of maltyness. The flavor has a pleasant underlying malty sweetness, and up front there’s hops, some more hops and even more hops. A nice bitterness, grass hints and lots of resins and citrus zest. Lasting finish. Pleasant indeed, sure wouldn’t mind having more of this. 120915

Cask @ GBBF, 2011. Pours cloudy golden with small bubbles on top. Nose has lots of grapefruit and peach. Smooth and full bodied. Dry and hoppy end - far from a palate wrecker though.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I liked this beer. Super potent with great hops kick. Dark orange pour with a mildly bubbly white head. Nose of pine and citrus. Notes of grapefruit in the flavor and a strong hops presence with slight malt. Pretty smooth on the go-down. Really tasty. Had this on tap at Rattle and Hum in NYC.

Bottled 12fl Oz (Beer Hunters)
Clear deep amber color, small steady beige head. Rye-bread, sugar and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied. Bready, sweetish flavor, not very fresh feeling (has it ever been?). Aftertaste has nice long resiny hoppyness.
