This is pretty tasty. Lots of hops, a nice bitterness but is also a bit piney sticky in a good way. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a frothy almost white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. The flavor does not disappoint; bitter grapefruit and pine needles are the most noticeable flavors with just a touch of spiciness from the hops. The beer is as balanced as I would want it to be while still showcasing the hops. Very well done.
