3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Clear amber body with a moundy light tan head. Excellent patterns of lacing left behind.
S - Smells just like whoppers candy in a pine forest.
T - Pine upfront with a a hint of grapefruit zest, the malt is bold but very clean. The malt provides white and brown bread flavors and it holds sturdy while laughing in the face of the green hops. Mint and green hops comes through on the finish.
M - Medium firm body, creamy, finishes dry.
The malt is the driving force even with a solid pine, herbal, green hop profile. I noticed more mint than fruit and the body and finish were very smooth and enjoyable.

Slightly cloudy amber pour with a decent off white head. Malty, piney, caramel aroma. Upfront a slightly weird, spicy, honey taste which gives way to malty with pine bitterness. Definitely an interesting beer, pretty damn good.

Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a pretty dark amber with a beige head of foam. Aroma is piny bitter. The taste is a more earthy, malty sweetness up front, but moves to bitter quickly. Medium bodied and medium carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, light brown colour. Very, fresh malty aroma. The initial taste is also well represented by the strong flavoured malts. The hops are quite sweet and piney with some fruity tones. It becomes pleasantly dry in the finish.
