2012 bottle poured into perfect pint. Clear copper color. Subtle fresh hop taste. Lacy white head. Drinks easy and is refreshing for an IPA. Not much aroma at all. Overall, good beer.

This is one of my favorite winter beers. Nice and malty with a full mouthfeel. Goes down smooth and warms you up on a cold night.

Dark amber colour with a large fluffy head. Aroma of citrus, some fruitiness and with a hint of roasted caramel. Taste of hops with a superb character with pine and steady, even bitterness that stays around. A delectable beer with a smooth mouth feel a slight sting of bitterness in the aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Pours a hazy amber copper. A rocky 2 finger off-white head retains very well.
S - Woody pine forest, fresh pine needles, orange and grapefruit citrus, strawberries, doughy caramel malt.
T - Citrus hits first and is more pronounced than the aroma lets on. Green pine cone hops come in and add some herbal bite along with earthy strawberries along a honey caramel malt.
M - Very creamy medium body with moderate carbonation.
I look forward to this every year and never disappoints.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful cloudy amber with a thin yet creamy head. A delicate citrus and pine nose with a hint of burnt caramel. Slightly more aggressive front palate of pine and lovely fresh hops leads into a small amount of malty sweetness. A long dry, yet balanced end. Nice ipa without being too ’out there’ or overly aggressive

So good. I wish this was year round. Great mellow ipa and the best part is they sell it in cases at Costco.
