ghawener (1592) - San Salvador, - JAN 7, 2013
Draft: I have two rules for drinking beers, 1) drink local and 2) always try something new. This one is brutal on the alcohol presence, needs a lot of balance. Food Pairing: Strong, stinky cheese.

CObiased (483) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2017
12oz can - 8.2% ABV 85 IBU - pours a clear light gold wit a slight tinge of orange with a thick fluffy off white head. Faint aroma of citrus peel, light pine and a cracker malt. I was hoping for more flavor but I do taste some basic citrus, pine resin and minor malt. Weak

Can says its 8.2%. Hazy golden with a white head. Strong citrus and hop resin aroma with sweet malt throughout. Full bodied. Citrus and orange with earthy and slightly tangy flavor. Difficult to pin down. Intriguing to begin with but quickly gets a bit ... annoying. If this had been a taster at the brewery I think it would have gotten at least a half a pint higher score.

wombat23 (1229) - Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Draft at Yard House, Red Rock Resort, Las Vegas. Clear gold, white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, resin. Taste is citrus, caramel, resin, pine, and alcohol. OK.

Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body. Aroma is a little boozy, pine tree resin and grapefruit. Taste is a well managed big grapefruit and pine bitterness. Texture is heavier.

Nsanders (1112) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Can. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Grapefruit, pine, caramel and ritz crackers. Briefly sweet before a heavy grapefruit bitterness kicks in and a slight floral aftertaste. Medium body with a foamy,soapy feel.

nearbeer (5229) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2016
12 oz. canned 7/21/2014, Haha you poor sucker. Pour is translucent orange-bronze with a disc of beady bubbles. Nose is orange toffee and dank, ashy herb. Flavor is toffee, stale green herb, ash and maybe some toasted maize. Long finish has some mint and lemongrass. Near-medium bodied with medium carbonation and a decent balance. Not as bad as expected after seeing the date stamp but overall pretty unimpressive. I think this one proves the great preservative properties of the can as most of the pre-2015 reviews I read line up with the mess I tasted. Seems like they changed the recipe for the better after that.

pineypower (3247) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Sampler at Yardhouse Las Vegas. Pours out a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of some nice citrus, pine, evergreen, grass, light bread. Taste is much the same, decent hop profile of citrus, evergreen, grass, little more bready malt comes across in the taste.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy with modest fine carbonation. Soft malts, mildly sweet. Nice spicy tangerine hop sweetened by a little mango. Smooth pine. Some citic peel bitterness on the smooth finish, Light on its feet and very drinkable.

bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Pour is golden with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is hops and a earthy honey note. A very easy drinker that is full of hop flavors but little bitterness.
