Poured into a chalice AND a pint glass. Take that!
it's a milky reddish-brown, almost looking like apple cider, and leaves some gorgeous lacing on the pint glass. First reaction upon smelling: "it smells like pizza. WHY DOES IT SMELL LIKE PIZZA?" Seriously. Between the yeastiness and, I swear, a tomato scent... almost Spaghettio-esque. I don't understand, but I'm curious.
Yep. Still tastes like Spaghettios. Pizza is gone. Between the yeastiness and the tomato-esque tartness... yeah. Upon further sipping and letting it sit for a minute, I'm finding a very tart maltiness, more like beer and less like Boyardee, though that's still there.
I find the transparency of the GYO angle compelling and really do appreciate the information on the bottle, as well as Rogue trying something it seems isn't a standard on the beer market. It's even a tasty beer! I'm just confused.

3.64/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a standard pint.
A: Medium brown. Pours a 1+ finger, frothy, white head. Settles slowly, leaving a thick, persistent foam blanket. Plenty of beer ring lacing. Head renews fully with each pour.
S: Pine, honey, and citrus.
T: Pine straw. Lots of lemon pith. And a woody malt tone.
M: Biting hop character. Bitter and crisp. Dry finish.
D: Sipping experience due to character.
Atmosphere is pretty good. Frothy head, persistent foam, and lots of lacing. Nose is very piney, very citrusy, with a distinct sweet note. Very bitter pine hop, bitter lemon pith, and a bit of woody character. Overall, this is a good quaff.
