Thanks to kubrick215 for sharing.

Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting cap/ring.  Splotchy lacing left behind.

Slightly earthy citrus hop aroma with dank buds, resinous, grassy pine needle and tropical fruit notes.  Floral grass notes and pine needle followed by hints of mango, pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peel.  Surprising citrus/tropical fruit character countered by subtle bread and biscuit malt.

Medium bodied with a blast of earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweet tropical/citrus fruit notes and pale malt backbone into a dry finish.  Sticky, dry and bitter with grassy, piney hops followed by grapefruit sweetness, pineapple and orang zest.  Malt backbone is a touch stronger than expected balancing things out but doesn't  interfere with the hop flavor.  Some toffee, biscuit, bread and graham cracker flavor in the finish.  Well balanced and  easy to drink with subtle alcohol heat in the finish yet the abv is well masked.  Nice beer from foothills.

3.8/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Fairly clear deep golden with a lingering frothy ivory head.

Aroma is resin, citrus, lightly floral, and malty.

Flavor has a strong, slightly sweet malty base, with notes of resin throughout. Citrus and bitterness are secondary.

Body is fairly full, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

Not as hoppy as I expected. Fairly sweet, and I hoped for more character.
