From 09/16/14 notes, on tap at CBC in MA.

Pours a somewhat clear golden color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Floral hops, citrus, caramel malts, and fruity malts. Taste was a lot of pine and resin, some soap. Medium body and low carbonation, light bite and bitterness, dry finish.

Overall decent but taste a little too bitter for me.

The beer comes in a hazy dark golden color.

The beer offers gentle fruity and mostly floral hops. A medium sweetness and bready malt in the middle. A good bitterness of grassiness and slight pine on the finish.

A well constructed with decent hops flavors and good balance.
