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.

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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, St Augs. Hazy light copper, extra chewy, lots of chewy crystal malt and syrupy syrup. Quite bitter and quite sweet. Bit boozy in the finish. Really nothing I want in a beer, but credit for decent balance and at least coming close to smoothness.

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.

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.
