From bottle to glass. Two weeks old from the brewery. Citrus, pine and moderate sweet malt aroma. Clear deep gold with full white head that lingers throughout. Great combination of citrus and pine, with malt supporting well.

Another perfect brew from here. Great mango hop aroma. Hop flavor continues nicely throughout whole experience. Not super bitter but super hoppy. Nice lively carbonation that brings out all the hop nuances nicely.

Pours hazy pale amber, fluffy beige head and bright tropical fruits (passion fruit, yuzu) on the nose. Medium body and carbonation, fruity, moderately bitter, plenty of fruityness with an undertone of digestive malt, very easy drinking.

Arômes de pins, de sapin avec une légère base de caramel. En bouche corps moyen qui supporte parfaitement l’amertume et les saveurs bien dosés de houblon sapinés. Excellent

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Russian River. Pours bright golden copper with thin lacy white head. Aroma is light crisply sweet caramel malt, fresh medium hops with notes of grass, pine, and earth. Taste is similar - crisp light caramel malt and lots of hop flavor. I get notes of grapefruit, pine, and lemon. Super flavorful, and very impressive given the light body and abv. Just like Pliny, this has the flavor that other beers add +1-2% abv trying to accomplish. Really fresh tasting too, not surprising given I’m at the brewpub...
