Bottled June 4 - thanks a ton to Ben! Pours hazy amber gold with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is citrus, tropical, pine resin, spruce tip, cat piss. Flavor is about the same, quite resinous. Little sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Pretty darn good, but I bet it was better in mid June! danlo (3236) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
