[326-20070602] 22oz (w/ jerc). Very hoppy aroma, lightly burnt clean vegetable. Clear, amber orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Boozy toffee-like caramel flavour, initially sweet, lightly smoky. Medium body, a little astringent. Not well-blended but an interesting texture.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can in a pint glass. Dull orange and light brown aroma is pine and maple syrup. The taste is all resinous pine and heavy on the caramel malt. Sticky palate with perfect hop bitterness. Very good but, I like the 2013 version better than 2014.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fruity, slightly sweet aroma but bitterness is dominant with citrus-like hoppy fragrance. Flavour opens with yeasty notes, a bit cookie and grain-like flavour but then a very intense, very straightforward bitterness rolls over the tongue leaving a refreshing but a bit dry aftertaste. This appears like a more bitter impression on the taste buds but the yeasty/malty opening balances it nicely.
