3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml can
Hazy orange straw color. Thin off white collar. Looks better on swirling. At best a half finger of dirty white head. Big Abv legs and spotty lacing.
Nose is full of resin. Duh. Pine, orange, grapefruit and red apple. Pretty vibrant and aggressive.
Taste is oddly a lot of apple. Bitterness is more in the mid and back of palate. More like eating a bitter apple in some odd way. Maybe some mango and other tropical fruits as well. Tastes fresh though.
A little harsh in the back, not a lot OF balance and the ABV goes to the dome. O
Ne 4 pack will suffice here And there.

12 ounces can. Thanks Ben. Aroma: pines, grapefruits, tropical cities, citrus, caramel. App: clear copper with small white head and some lacing. Taste and palate: medium to full body, oily, light sweetness, aggressive high and long bitter finish. High carbonation. Overall: nose could be a little less soft, but the mouthfeel is way different, like a punch in the mouth. So tasteful and bitter. Well worth its cheap price.

Pours a clear amber. Nose is pine trees, citrus, a touch of dank hops. Taste starts off very smooth, juicy citrus, hop flavor, then becomes pine resin, moderate to high bitterness on the finish. I like this a lot. It's tasty, and aggressive.

Can at home. Pours a crystal clear copper orange with one finger of off white head. Aroma is strongly orange peel tangerine and some pine. Flavor follows with less orange. Nice malt backbone. Very bitter, maybe overly so. Alcohol was very noticeable. Some burn. Overall, a nice beer.
