Can courtesy of theisti. Pours a hazy orange-copper with a large, loose, fluffy, off-white head that leaves behind sticky lace. The nose is of sweet, candy-like floral and citric hops over a toasty caramel malt base. Light-bodied and fairly slick it finishes moderately dry and bitter. Bitter, floral and citric hops over a toasty malt base. This is an interesting APA, and I’m glad to have had the chance to try it. Thanks again, Tim!

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 16oz can, batch #3. English pint glass. Copper/amber color with a dense one fingered cream colored head. Aroma is piney hops, but is very faint (due the head?). Flavor is earthy, floral, and piney hops as well as some light caramel and a strong bitterness (for the style). Not bad, but nothing special. Thanks for the chance to try this Tim.

I would rate this higher were the consistency better. Have had three 4pks and some were crisp and hoppy and extremely refreshing while a few seemed like they had been sitting around for a long time and starting to flocculate. Word is that an initial batch was awesome and close to an IPA rather than pale ale. I’ll keep trying and hope they do as well.

Thanks to KAggie97 for the beer. The can looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass is quite dark, not much foam. Strong and modest alcoholic aroma. Tastes dry and strong, modest malty, a bit old. Scratchy-strong finish. Not bad!

Droptank (79) - Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2008
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.

Can extra in a trade. Amber body with 2 finger foam white head. Aroma is hops all the way. Pine copper floral in the flavor with some strong malt in the backbone. Decent can.
