bottle from psprings...

pours a perfectly pale copper color with a crazy fluffy creamy off white head. loads of lacy rings are left behind with each sip.

this smells like walking through the pine forests of west virginia... wet rocks, moss, pine trees, dry leaves, earth and faint sweetness in the air.

the flavor is far less poetic and far more maltier than i wanted it to be... it's got orange and grapefruit rinds and pith, pine and hoppy dryness but caramel and maltiness show up to spoil the show. there's a fair amount of bitterness to help out but it can't quite break through. the carbonation is pleasant and quite soft. the body is medium though only from the sugar content... 7/3/7/4/15/3.6
