Wow, Pine belt never tasted so literal. Hints of pine, resinous and delicious. I am extremely impressed with this beer. Thick head, toasted hops and dark amber color are all you need to know this is something special. Different indeed, I urge all to try. Good Job guys....Gig em!

Thanks to maltomeal. Pours a soft pale copper with a two finger creamy yellowish head. The nose is hoppy and citrusy, piney almost. Very nice nose. The flavor is citrusy, spicy hops, a tad watery, some diacetyl. Overall a nice pale ale, lightly waxy on the palate.

Tastes of caramel, lighter citrus, and lighter pine. Tastes a bit of a let down compared to the very nice aromas. Body on the thin and weaker side.

16oz can to imperial pint glass. Pours cloudy amber with a moderate sized white head, some lace. Smells mellow citrusy, slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Tastes malty sweet and caramelly up front with a slow building and lingering hop bitterness. Very nice flavors, solid pale ale, nice hops. Medium body, good carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark copper-amber color with a frothy, well retained, cream colored head. Thick, solid rings of lacing circle the glass. Aromas are heavy on caramel, toffee, and toasty malts, along with a potent grapefruit and orange hop billing. Flavors show excellent balance, with the big, caramelly malts being countered by substantial citrus hop notes. Very creamy. Medium-full bodied, moderately carbonated, and incredibly smooth. Finishes with lingering citrus hops. Very, very similar to its canned brethren, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale. Nice beer.
