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.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a copper-gold coloring, with a filmy, clingy, off-white surface coating of head. Nose of piney and grassy hops forward, with a subtle, caramel backbone. Flavors of peppery spice and pine pitch hops forward, with hints of evergreen and pine tassel. Bicuity backbone supports the palate, but does not interfere. Solid, mid-bodied, with a great lacing left behind. Peppery and pine tassel aftertaste, with a dry, spicy finish. Hoppier than most pales, but still balanced and drinkable.
