Bottled. Poured a nice hazy and verylightly filtered golden sunset brown. finger and a half of head. Nose was very pleasant with notes of pine, floral, and pineapple. Taste was a bready, with a good bittery and smooth finish. Once it warmed up, the nose was even more present with pine, and pineaple. an extremely tasty brew.

Tap. Yellow color, thick white head. Absolutely amazing aroma of fresh pine forest - holy cow! Taste is very bitter, with plenty of resin and pine. Good stuff. PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2011
Hoppy and hoppier. In a blind taste test I would steer towards the Ipa category. this is an awesome pale ale. giant head the towers over the brew at first. Im thinking the abv is around 5.5 or so. Flows nicely on the pallate with citrus, hay, and malt notes prevalent. Color is amazingly bold for a pale ale. A mild sunlight shown through a sterdy barn in the morning hours. This is my favorite pale ale. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 29, 2011

Aroma: great note ,frontal hop dryness, pine , spruce , green grassy feel. Superbly fresh. 8+
Appearance: great pour. Pleasant to eye crystal clear dark amber with large frothy white top. Fine ornamental lace.4+
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: Medium full bodied. Dry but overly, crisp ,clean palate. Bitter yet smooth with herbal and pine notes. Straight to the point. I have not had such clean cut brew in a long time. Solid if not world class bitter amber ale.
A tart pale ale, very herbal, and invigorating palate. One of my favorite pale ales!
