Served in straight pint glass. Poured a cloudy straw yellow color with about 3/4 of an inch of white head that had that just below average amounts of retention and lacing.

The aroma featured some piney hops as the dominant scent, with some floral notes on top of some gently soft malts. The taste was mostly similar, with the addition of a bit of a citrus tang at the finish.

The body was on the light side of typical for the style and the beer had good carbonation, which helped the flavors carry across the tongue. Drinkability was very good, the beer went down quickly and easily and I almost had a second, but I had to get going. Overall, a nice beer that had a quick warming effect from the alcohol. Worth trying if you see it. I don't think this beer is bottled, so you may need to trade for a growler.

On tap at Snipes Mountain, 5.18 and 5.20.12.

Light orange amber clear body, not a lot of visible carbonation, one finger white head, minimal lacing. Citrus dominated nose grapefruit pith with some meyer lemon notes a bit of pine resin and light malts. Taste is a bit on the bitter side up front leading to a more pine than resiny finish, fairly firm malt backbone to keep it together. Mouthfeel is a bit on the light side of medium, fairly dry finish, not a lot of effervescence. Wasn't too impressed with this the first time, it was better the second time, and I brought a growler home so it couldn't have been that bad.
