Shot (499) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Can. Pours gold with a with fluffy head. Substantial cling. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. Flavors of sweet malt, a ht of citrus, spruce needles, a bit of grassiness, and bready notes. Finishes with the sharp, lingering, resiny bitterness of pine needles. Very interesting. A bit of a hop bomb. Noticeable alcohol. Oily mouthfeel, but otherwise fairly clean. Nice.

mambossa (336) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Im an absolute sucker for pine. I had to try this.
Pours clear straw with nice head retention and faint lacing.
Nose is beautifully herbal. Underlying orange and candied lemon, and a loving dose of beautiful, herbal spruce, peppery thyme, prickly, and green as can be.
A very easy and bright body carries the herbaceous pine resin, grapefruit pith, lemongrass, and white flower effortlessly. A truly unique flavor fulfilling all expectations.
Overall, just what I want. The piney-est brew with spruce tips Ive ever had. Truly satisfying and delightful!
