deyholla (8028) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a near clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of pine notes with a good amount of underlying grass and a sweet grain and hay backbone. Flavor begins with a light grassy note but quickly grows in intensity to a bitter pine note with only a slight grain backbone.

RamyG4 (323) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from mikem409. Slightly hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, with a nice caramel malt backbone, a little funk as well. Taste is medium biter, mild-medium sweet. A lot of flavor for what I imagine is a relatively low ABV beer. Hoppy finish. Light bodied, lots of carbonation.

Light golden orange in color with a bright white head. Earthy hop scent. Taste is earthy, grassy and highly bitter. Great session ale.
