Bottle. Taste is flowers, mild hops, grain and malt. A bit more hops would do this one well, but otherwise a decent offering.

A straight forward but hoppy brew that’s really good. Aroma is slightly less that you might think, but the hops are there. The flavor has a rustic sweet that is really complemented by the hops that are citrusy. The finish is smooth and faintly bitter and the mouth feel is medium. This brew is certainly for the hop enthusiast...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The name is a perfect description of this beer. On the nose and on the palate, biting pine and apricot hops. A little earthy. Then a caramel sweetness from the malts. Two aggressive profiles in balance, if not harmony. A worthwhile experiment.

bottle. golden with one finger head. mild hops with a slight bite in the finish, but the overall taste just doesn’t do it for me. clearly i’m in the minority here.
