I was real excited to try this but... my bottle was infected... so my rating is neutral.

A beer that literally brought a smile to my face, and did so once again when I brought it home and had it months later with a friend, who also couldn't help but smile at the citrusy hops, shimmer of pine interwoven with woodsy, sunshiny spruce, and a subtle carbonation. Hazy burnt gold with a nice frothy head that fades to a lace. This one just hit it on the nose for me.

Disclaimer: I love gin and first experienced gin in a beer in the Magic Hat Artifactory series. Since then, I've been searching for a comparable been with gin tones in it.

Pours a orange-tangerine like hue, bold and opaque, with a bit of sediment arisen from the bottom.Smells of mild pine notes, definitely a touch of amarillo hop . Mouthfeel was carbonated mildly and weighs well on the tongue.
Lacing was scant. Taste of lime, caramel sweetness, somewhat tart. No real clear sense of the gin or juniper berries unfortunately.

finishes sweet on the back end. Complex ending here. Its a great beer for fall season and the cool nights. But still does not hit the juniper notes I've still looking for. So to that end, I'll still drop a shot of gin into a Torpeda IPA for full effect.
