3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle - really confused about this one . Pours a clear orange thin bright white head . Aromas of cranberries and big spruce . Exactly as advertised , tastes like bitter juniper / cranberry / and spruce . The beer drinker in me does not like it , but the inner gin drinker is kind of into it . Interesting .

Sampled at Cambridge, pours hazy yellow golden. Vicks vapor rub, medical balm, and infected juniper berries. God help us at this shorts event.

Wasn’t a fan. Aromas of wet pine, juniper berries, heavy gin aromas. Flavors of pine, more pine, gin, acetal, juicy fruit gum finish. Wet on the palate, finishes dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is juicy, juniper berries, tropical fruit, cranberries, pine. Appearance is dark straw yellow, hazy as hell, white head. Taste is cranberries, juniper, citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple, pine, it’s pretty weird, not sure how I feel about it yet. Mouthfeel is medium body, very light carbonation, a crazy juniper and cranberry aftertaste lingers. Overall, this is a weird one. Definitely different for an IPA but not all too bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The pour is a yellow, mild haze. The aroma is essentially a gin and tonic. The taste is a little wild. Has some of the gin, certainly the pine needles, and a bitterness from the hops. Taste does not really match the aroma. Interesting, but not something I would drink more than one of.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is nice but has a bit of floor cleaner feel to it. Taste is far too bitter. Way way too bitter.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big pine, spruce, juniper, slight potpourri like note with a hint of bread, slight fruit. Taste was a mix of fruit, pine, almost floor cleaner like into some soapy floral notes, finishing slightly sweet, slightly bitter.

Back logged. A decent pine heavy IPA. Similar to Spruce Pilsner. Sharp carbonation. Not my favorite.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head. The aroma is rosemary and fruit. Medium mouth with strong rosemary and tylenol, nope.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tastes like a Christmas tree and some cranberry.... Not in a good way. Aroma of more fruity notes, some grassiness, earthy spruce notes. Flavor is tons of spruce and a bit more... It’s a lot. I hope you like Christmas trees.
