Sampled at Blues and Brews. Pours slightly hazy amber/orange with a short off white head. Lots of pine resin on the aroma, secondary fruit scent. Little more fruit in the flavor, with orange and tangerine. Still more bitter than sweet. Good malt base. Body is thinner than you would expect. Bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle with a date of 7/22/14. Orange amber color with light bubbly head in the snifter. Tiny particles floating in the brew. Aroma of fruit ( light peach) but mostly strong pine hops. More like whole hop pellets from the home brewers supply shop.
Main base of the beer has some caramel/ toffee malt. The hops are earthy with just a ton of pine. The bitterness is long lingering and abrasive. And abrasive in this case is not pleasant because the alcohol also can be detected. Pretty dry texture. I think if they can integrate more fruit with more malt balance and hide the alcohol, this would improve it greatly.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A lightly hazy one, dark golden in color and with a small, dense, off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma has pine cones and resins, with some grapefruit notes and pale malts. It’s full-bodied and with a nice carbonation level. Grapefruit, pine cones and resins in the flavor, the malts lurking in the background. Lasting finish with lots of bitterness and grapefruit peel. Pretty nice this one, although a bit weak all the way. 140815
