BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle acquired via trade with ReeceG...24 karat but somewhat muddled. Grassy, earthy, leafy. Bright but not eye-opening. Solid example of the style but didn’t elevate above others in the category.

Poured a clear amber color with aromas of earth, light pine some herbal hops and a touch of vegetables. Flavors were a mixture of the aromas light and refreshing on the palate another solid pale ale from these guys.

Bottle. Look is clear amber with a nice head. Great hop aroma. Taste is citrus and spruce. I think this is a little drier than Blue or Yellow. Delicious!

kraddel (2806) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle thnx to Steasy66 . Split payed and sampled with ST247 Pours clear blonde. good white head . Smell is bit fruity , the same burnt-aspect-fruityness as I had in Zeelander . Perfect carbo . Full bodied, bit bitter, fruity, heavy taste . Some dark-bitter tastes , gentle yet intense . The taste is almost to be named as ’smokey’ but not quite that , as this is way better . Very interesting taste , very different and unique , and a damn good one ! Aftertaste is sweet, fruity, bit bitter, fleshy even almost . Very interesting beer !

birdmachine (165) - San Jose / San Luis Obispo, California, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle, half pour into a snifter glass. Aroma is a mix of pungent earthy hops dried grass, slight burnt hair character and slightly vegetal. Not that much citrus, or tropical fruit that others have pointed out, but once the initial dankness dies down melon becomes a bit more apparent. The beer pours clear red/orange with soapy white head that sticks around for a majority of the glass. Taste is resiny, dank, herbs light citrus, and some melon. Body is medium full, with medium-high carbonation and finishes somewhat full. After taste is resinous, light pine and earth. Overall the hop has a pretty gnarly aroma, but is dialed down a bit in taste. Lots of resin on the tongue and oils.

Piney aroma on the nose. This pale ale puts a transparent dark gold. Slightly caramel maltiness, but distinctly pine forward flavor. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.
