UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 Bright straw yellow body. Moderate sized white head and solid lacing. Nose is full of restrained pine, resin, grass, oranges, and a bit of lemon. Flavor leans toward the piney-grassy end of things and is complemented by a light grainy undercurrent. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, dry, mildly bitter finish. Impressive APA.

From a growler. Pours clear amber with a small head. The aroma is outstanding. Citrus and pine dominate with a bit of malt sweetness. The flavor has a bit of malt up front and the hops coming later. The finish is very dry.
