In short: bitter resinous ale.
Pours hazy dark gold with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Citrusy, pine, earthy nose. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite bitter, resins, earthy, some little tart citrisy notes in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Restrained aroma in a hazy amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance with a deliciously different dry woody body and a hint of resiny zest in the finish.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Cotteridge, Birmingham, consumed at home Sunday 12th June 2016 whilst cooking Cod and Chorizo Risotto. Golden maybe dark gold in colour with a white head. I hadn’t realised that this was a winter APA, however to be fair the name should of offered a clue. Fruity with a touch of pine, bittersweet some orange maybe, it’s ok but somewhat forgettable. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unclear apricot amber body.
Off whyte head.
Aroma of fruits, apricot, wood, caramel.
Tastes peach peels, hops, wood, fibres, pale caramel malts. Dry apple peely finish in wood fibres. Dry on palate, fizzy carbo.
Overall; hoppy enough, maybe malt is too modest.

Bottle. Hazy golden in colour, white head. The beer is packed with pine, resin and some citrus. Light, fresh and crisp, needles really improved the flavour.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange color with beige head. Aroma has sweet fruits like tangerines and peaches but also some sugar/syrup. Taste starts balanced with fruity notes, sweet biscuit malt and a good amount of hop bitterness in the background. Body is quite heavy for an APA, soft mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really tasty beer with a very smooth mouthfeel and a good amount of bitterness.

Great and very drinkable pale ale. The pine needles can be found in the aftertaste. Very balance and delicate.
