4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hands down one of my favorites. I’m a huge fan of almost everything Southern Star puts out, but once I found Pine Belt, I fell in love. Crisp, a little sweet with an IBU almost as high as an IPA. Nothing beats tossing back one or two of these right at the brewery on Saturdays.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy dark orange body under an average sized off-white head.
Juicy malt and citrus hop aroma.
The flavor starts sweet with the bitterness kicking in immediately as it heads to a dry finish.
Almost IPA territory here.

Bob picked this up in Charleston, it was a very nice find! Light orange, very very hazy. (clarity is overrated, see above) Thick off white head. Grapefruit and pine nose. Slight hop bite up front, nice.

Chattanooga. Tn. - Riverside Wine & Spirits - 16 oz can. Pours a murky dark orange with a soft white head that clings to the edges. Aroma has some candied fruit sweetness, a touch of pine. Flavor has some caramel accents, some underlying light citrus bitterness, a touch of white grapes. Mouthfeel has a decent stickiness to it. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pretty nice pale ale. Hops define this beer. Not too astringent and very piney. Kind of a one trick pony. Bought this in Houston in 2013.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from whole foods Chattanooga. Pours apricot with an inch of white foam. Massive pine on the nose. The Pine is pretty forward on the tongue and it lingers a bit. It’s got some stank to it. I like it.
