Great seasonal IPA! Color is a light brownish amber, slight head and good lacing. Not too much hop in the nose, but taste has a nice kick of hop bitterness that you expect. Medium to light body. Aftertaste is smooth and lingers just right.

One of my favorite seasonal beers. Head takes forever to dissipate and from there its wonderful pine and resin hop flavors.

Holtguy (170) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2016
This is a gorgeous looking beer. Clear amber with a fluffy cream colored head that lingers a long time. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Flavor is hop bitterness balanced with malt that is significant but not too sweet. Its well balanced. Hop bitterness in the finish with a bit of spiciness. Tremendous beer. I forgot how good this was.

Rich dark amber pour with beige cap that fades to a ring. Aroma is earthy hop, floral notes with a hint of pine and just-noticeable bready malt. Flavor follows identically as the well-balance ensemble of flavors meld with a slightly hop-forward advance throughout the sip. Super tasty, and very pleasant aftertaste. I usually have this each year and enjoy it, but dont remember it being damn good.

jsporrer (807) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Pours a clear coppery orange-red with an off white foamy head. Light aroma of pine and malts. Fairly smooth with a malt base and a slightly bitter but smooth finish. Flavors remind me of a lighter version of Weyerbacher Double Simcoe or Founders ReDankulous. Very enjoyable.

I had it on tap. It pours amber with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is piny hops and caramel. The taste is caramel malt, roasty, and hops. Theres a really nice balance here. This is very good.

ffaoe (483) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2016
balanced aroma that has both hop and malt aromas. amber and clear in color with a nice lasting head. Taste is beautifully balanced beginning with nice malty, slight roasty flavor, followed by nice hoppy finish.
