This beer confounds me a bit. Having serious potential to be really good, its unfortunate flaws knock it down. At first whiff, the aroma is a bit malty with a hint of floral/spicy hops. Underlying this however, is a green apple smell. This caries into the flavor and overall taste of the beer. I canít say for certain, but I suspect this beer was not properly aged. Otherwise, something else has caused a similar effect. The body is a bit thin as well. Honestly, this reminds me of homebrew... in a good way for the most part, tasting fresh and very vibrant.

12oz bottle. Damn this went down fast. I must have liked it OK to drink it that fast but I canít remember any particulars. Will have to taste some more and pay attention next time. Ratings are estimated.

That quinine hit right at the start fades to a beautiful resiny finish--it lingers in your mouth like the image of a pine tree over a lake

Frosty yellow; cloudy like pineapple juice. The head is massive, like a meringue. The lacing is spectacular. It is just beautiful to look at.
Aromatic notes of flowers and herbs. The hops are woody and dank. Just a touch of lemon/citrus rind, but just a touch. Very pleasant, not a lot to go by though.
The flavor is very earthy malts, very dirt/soil-like Then very herbal hops: more like a spice than citrus or wood. A touch of mushroom? Pleasant but definitely not amazing.
The feel is ashy and dry. This is a very earthy, herbal beer. Itís no surprise given all the tie-dyes on the label. Itís very solid, just not a mind-blower.

Aroma is pine, citrus and hops. Taste is pine, alcohol, citrus, orange and some hops. Decent start to finish. Could use a touch of refining. Overall OK.
