My first in the 4 pack was the peach mango. Man was that bad. Had little hope for the spruce beer after that. Luckily, this one didn’t disappoint. Darker straw colored body. Aroma is rich malty with some happyness. I really like the taste. Nice hoppy earthy flavor with a hint of spruce. I think it is really good.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slight clear bronze color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is caramel malts, hops and spruce. The taste is big on piney hops. This is a slightly above average beer.

euniceradio (414) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2015
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours light clear copper, thin white head, sticky lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine resin, and crystal malts. Taste is cheap fruit salad with pear, fig and berries mixing with light pine and grass. Meh...pretty weak. All of these IPAs in this sampler have an overtone of cat pissed carpet and cardboard.

Lightly hazy gold - amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and light, decent fine carbonation. Light and sweetish malts. Big pine! Fruity pine. Touch of fruit salad sweets turning to pear where it intersects the pine. Sweet creamy malts return before a smooth finish. A strange brew, but not without it’s merits.

BeerRenter76 (728) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally sampled on 11/20/14. Aroma wasnt as expected, i really was expecting something really piney but it didnt happen, the malts were as prevelant as the faint hops. Body and lace were pretty good, mouthfeel is very slightly sticky, finishes ok. Flavor is about even between the hops and caramel malts with no big pine or spruce presence. Overall it was just ok but a bit of a let down considering the name "Spruce Tip IPA".

Amber pour, nice white head. Aroma is malty, a bit of grass, not super hoppy aroma. Taste is light tropical fruit, apricot, faint pine. Caramel. A bit malt heavy, moderate bitterness. Smooth body, moderately carbonated. Average.
