12 ounce can. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of caramel malt. Much like a hoppy amber ale: sweet earthy biscuit, some caramel, crystal malt, light citrus, some bitterness in the finish. Not bad. Easygoing.

A - Brilliant amber with a hefty off-white head. Shows good retention and quite a bit of lacing.
S - Undercooked baked bread, clean pine, strawberries,
T - Fruity upfront, sweet malt follows suit. The hops come on slow but then pick up a good amount of bitterness. Lemons and pine are prominent. Doughy yeast and tea tannins comes out when warm.
M - Heavy side of medium body, chewy at times, ample carbonation.
Nice balance. The yeast and malt really shine but the hops take care of business. I would take this camping.
Serving type: can

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super piney. Medium-full body with a bit sweet of a finish. I consider this more a fall IPA with its fuller body. I'm drinking it in the spring/summer. Medium bitterness that doesn't linger too long on the palate, but does up in the back of the throat/nasal cavities. Overall, not bad. Would buy again in the fall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid brew but not exceptional. Pours amber with some fleeting head. Aroma is more citrus and grapefruit than pine. The hops are not showcased well here with an aroma that is somewhat disappointing; just wanted more here. Taste is solid: plenty of citrus notes, faint pine, and subtle malt character. Finish is dry and bitter enough.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
It poured a clear copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of citrus and pine. The taste was of mellow oranges and some pink grapefruits. There was a decent malt backbone and the mouth feel was medium with a lingering finish. Very tasty.

Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99
Purchased: May 2, 2013

Misc.: Best by July 10, 2013
Poured a dark caramel orange clear color with 1-2 fingers of khaki white head. Below-to-minimal lacing on the sides. Average retention on the top all the way down.
Tough to get any smells out. Worked hard and got some citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon, caramel malts and buttery malts.
Tasted similar to the nose, which isn’t saying that much. Got bitter buttery hops, orange, caramel malts, tropical hops and orange rind. Could definitely taste the alcohol.
Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, refreshing finish.
I was hoping for better, but was ultimately disappointed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. can. Strongly piney hop aroma, with touches of leafy herb, citrus and floral sweetness in the background, some faint honeyish malt present as well. Mostly clear light amber color with a very fine, lasting, white head. Flavor profile is quite hoppy from start to finish, more pine and fresh, leafy herbal tones here, with touches of light, honeyish, sugary sweetness to help provide some balance, with a strongly bitter and resinous finish. Relatively low in effervescence on the palate, oily and dry, body is medium. Piney as hell. Fairly tasty, though, I could see picking this up again.
