The pine is very subtle. Deep malty richness accompanied with crisp Christmas hops. I could drink this outside the Christmas season as well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange beer with huge white cloudy head. Aroma is fruity, piny and resiny hops and caramel sweetness. Tastes piny, resiny, caramelly sweet and bitter. Finish is bitter and pretty long but not overly dry or strong. Mouthfeel is thinner than medium and mildly carbonated. Would have preferred something more refreshing or spicy.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves a thing, but coating lace. The aroma and flavor is pale malts, caramel, light toast, some citrus and light pine, but not much ginger. The flavor is more malt than hops. I wonder how old this is.

Good IPA but not great. Frothy head and aromas of pine and hops. Overall: 15/20.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a completely transparent golden orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of hops with a big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid, albeit very malty, IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nearly clear bronze with a big, lasting frothy head. Aroma is heavily hoppy; it features peachy fruitiness with an exotic touch and also some piny and floral elements. Taste is bitter, but not brutally so; initially there are even some sweetish notes. It displays mainly fruitiness with orange and peach especially prominent. Also some herbal spiciness is around. Medium bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel. The finish is dry and bitter. Nicely fruity Christmas-IPA.

Slightly hazy amber-orange color, good creamy off-white head. Aroma has exotic fruits and pine. Medium-bodied. Piney bitter with exotic fruityness and resin. Lingering bitterness. Some yeasty notes lurking. Nice "bittersweet" IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Leaves plenty of good, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, light carbonation, kind of slick. Caramel malt, some rind orange citrus in the flavor. Some belgian candy sugar. Sadly, I don’t get nearly as much pine nor ginger as I’d hoped for. Pretty sweet taste, light bitter. Was hoping for much more, here.
