Pine Box, Seattle. During SBW, as ’SBW Session’. Hazy bright yellow, cloudy, creamy white foam. Lovely pale, great fresh juicy hop. Clean, tasty. Typical pine-citrus mellowing in to cereal grain. Tons of flavor. Delicious and fresh.

jnanakul (26) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Poured into a tulip from a can. Hazy golden color with a small off white head. Citrus and slight floral hoppy aroma. Flavor follows aroma. The hops come through fairly strong towards the end and it finishes fairly bitter. Not as well balanced as I’d like, but overall I’d say it’s drinkable.

12-oz can. Pours a hazy medium amber with a gigantic white sudsy head. Big fresh pine and a bit of grapefruit on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty light caramel with pine and grapefruit on the mid palate. Long dry finish. Very nice.

Can pours hazy golden with a lacy white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, dank notes. Nice dry flavor, citrusy, some herb, bitter hoppy finish. Quite light and drinkable. Really enjoyable, moreish as the Brits might say.

Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2015 This deserves a bump. It took me awhile to get this, but but after a few hotter than usual Seattle months and some harder than usual workouts, it clicked. I’ve been crushing the hell out of these this summer, and once this 6-pack is gone I’m picking up another.

[4/8/2013] Can. Pours clear, straw colored golden with white head that dissipates fast. Fresh, weedy hop aroma, with tropical citrus, dank, and spicy bread/biscuit. Pizza crust - there’s a smell reminiscent of pizza dough I swear. Taste of grass/hay, wheat, dry graininess, biscuit, cracker. Short finish with crisp, light bitterness to seal the deal. Pretty dry overall. Pizza crust is still there. Lively carbonation, light body, texture a little on the thin side. (7/3/7/3/14) Overall: Refreshing, thirst-quenching and and drinkable. Nice. Makes me wish I had a lawn to mow.

Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Serving: from tap at Smarty Pants. Aroma: lightly piney hoppy. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-yellow body. Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Very light hoppy aroma and the taste was not overwhelmingly bitter. I would certainly drink this again.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this can. It is being reviewed from notes and was drank fresh. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong pine, pineapple and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is full of pine, biscuit malt, orange citrus and some low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
