Hanuta06 (495) - 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.

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.

onceblind (10862) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Hazy light golden with a rocky white head. Very pungent aroma loaded with hops, with that earthy leafy dry-hopped tone I love, a bit of grassiness, and a stern bit of grapefruit rind. Crisp and light body with a nice flavor of grassy, leafy, grapefruity hops, a wee bit of earthy resin, crisp leafy dry hops, and a pale, crisp, balancing pale malt body. just a hint too pithy and resiny but otherwise quite nice. Could have also used a little bit of a sharper flavor, as it is it tastes just a wee watered.

On tap at The Pine Box pub in Seattle-USA. Hazy yellow pour a bit bright, great adhesive white foamy head. Nose: piney, grapefruit, resin. Mouth: medium carbo, piney crazy bitterness, session mild character and really bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
