Has a pleasant piney aroma. Taste has pine in it but also has hints of fruit, specifically grapefruit. A rather crisp and refreshing beer.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a little khaki head. Big aroma of pine and light citrus notes dominate the nose. Taste is deep citrus fruits, tangerines, grapefruit, blood orange. The citrus is backed by a weak caramel flavor. Medium body with the carbonation being somewhat on the lower side.

Bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized fluffy off-white head. The aroma is mildly sweet, grapefruit citrus, mild resin with some caramel. The flavor has toasted bread, caramel, grapefruit citrus, resin and earthy hops. Good bitterness to the finish, but could use some more flavoring hops.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
From notes: Poured orangey-amber with a slight haze and a 1-finger off-white head. Piney hops aroma, but much milder than what I’ve gotten from many double IPA’s. Full body, with a slight thickness and some astringency at the finish. Strong piney hops flavor, but not particularly over-the-top.

Im getting floral and citrus hops along with candy and molasses,earthy and yeasty too in the aroma..nice looking orange amber clear liquid with slightly off white head and plenty of lacing..tastes bitter piney citrusy and spicy upfront with candylike maltiness in the background andf a long bitter dry finish..medium bodied and a bit sticky ..not bad but not a big favorite either VERY bitter and dry is the main characteristic here and gets extra points for being a bargain (6pack about 11 dollars)
