Pours a clear light amber with a smallish head and no lacing. The aroma is medium sweet with citrus, pine, grassy and sweet grainy malt. The flavor is heavy piney fruity bitterness and caramel sweet malt. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel. The finish is dry and more bitter than initially. I had high hopes for this one based on what I had read but it doesn't live up to the hype.
