3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a finger and half of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is a lot of pine resin.
The taste starts with mild lemon bitterness, then middle to end is a big pine resin bitter. Not my favorite flavor.
The texture is crisp.
It has an intense resin smell and flavor which is great if you like that.

"more like a hoppy amber than a west coast ipa...as an ipa, it’s a bit melow. as an amber, it’s fairly aggressive, if not great. an enjoyable beer. refreshing

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours orangey copper with an off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. They describe this beer as their hoppiest but it’s not. There’s a little citrus in the aroma and a little bitterness in the flavor, but this is just a chewy sweet malty amber/red thing.
