3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle thanks to neeps’ brother. Soft amber color, good clarity, with a thin white head. Big ol floral citrus and pine nose, spicy. Resiny hop flavor throughout, hits of caramel and a pithy bitter pine hop finish. Really well done, heavily hopped on the aroma hops, really floral.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A relative from Anchorage brought a bottle during a recent visit. Colour... straw-amber. Nose... strongly hoppy but not "over-the-top-hops". Palate... more with the hops, anise, piney, lightly resinous with extractives of juniper berries on the back of the palate. Delightfully different!

Sample tasting from the brewery.
Pours a pretty amber color, with a little white head. A little bit stronger aroma of hops than most American pale ale’s that I’ve had before. Very easy drinking, and pleasant beer.
