12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a frothy almost white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. The flavor does not disappoint; bitter grapefruit and pine needles are the most noticeable flavors with just a touch of spiciness from the hops. The beer is as balanced as I would want it to be while still showcasing the hops. Very well done.

RedSox2004 (1839) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Clear golden amber with a two-finger creamy head that dissipated quickly bu left very nice lacing. Aromas of citrus - mostly grapefruit - and pine with generous caramel malt for a backbone. Caramel sweetness up front gives way quickly to the sharp hop profile, dominated by the grapefruit with the pine in the background. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a crisp bitter finish.

pours a golden amber, lively bubbles, off white head. The noses is grassy is and herbal with a decent caramel malt backbone. The flavor has some oily hop resign flavors, notes of meaty orange citrus, with a grassy herbal spice in the finish. The body is a touch syrupy but has an aggressive carbonation to balance out.

wxman (1793) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a big full rocky white head that laces and stays. Mild pine cone aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, grapefruit and bread. Hop bitterness is certainly up front as well, but not as much as 82 IBU would indicate. Quite good; refreshing and balanced.
