Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy golden/amber body with a medium off-white head. Lively carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of resin, boozy orange and toffee. Flavour of pine needles, peppery spice and flowery hops. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Prickly fizz. Reminds me of Lagunitas’ Maximus. Very good.
