Have been looking for this beer for some time, most places only have the pale ale and the seasonal so I am happy to be able to review it.
A- Copper colored ale with nice head and amazing retention/lacing.
S- Piney hops is the main thing in the nose, I don't notice much else, less than impressive smell in comparison to their harvest pale ale.
T- Wow, this is a delicious resinous, piney, and slightly citrusy beer. So well balanced that I may have a new favorite non-luxury (>10+ sixer) single ipa. The finish has an interesting mineral flavor.
M- Oily and creamy, this beer does have a great feel to it, medium to full bodied with a hardness to it.
D- Well the alcohol is a bit high, however this is not an ultra-heavy brew, definitely sessionable, yet not really the way I like to drink it as after two you don't taste the hops as well.
I wish this was available at more liquor stores around me, as great as finest kind ipa is, this is a very welcome change of pace. I know the east coast/west coast ipa debate will rage on, I love both and think they complement each other very well. I will get this when I find it.

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
