UPDATED: OCT 9, 2011 [3680-20110416] 12floz bottle. Sweaty spruce evergreen hops aroma has a hint of toasted flower petals. Clear, orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Oily spruce resin hops flavour has a lingering tree needle-like tea aftertaste. Medium body is just a little bitter. Lovely balance but has some strange burnt vegetable oil characteristics.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear orange with thin white head, aroma has notes of lemon, grass, spice, touch of grain, hints of earth, touch of nice orange peel in there as well, pretty nice and spicy notes. Taste is a nice mix of crackery biscuit, grain, some nice spicy notes, a fair husky note, touch of lemon, hints of orange, finishing fairly grainy. Decent, but not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Hazy golden. Hoppy aroma, citric, fruity and slightly stale. Flavor has a bit of graininess and a bitter hoppy finish, a bit citric, with light stale notes. Medium-bodied. Seems slightly past its prime, but still decent and refreshing.
