From a 11 oz bottle into a pint glass.

This beer ppoured a nice orangey gold color with a fluffy 2 finger head that broke slowly leaving some interesting lacing.

The prominent smell was piney hops and malts. Some subtle citrus as well, but pine was dominant.

Taste was big hops and bitter. The finish stayed bitter which is not what I expected.

Mouth feel is moderate with medium carbonation.

What sticks out to me about this beer is the bitter finish. Usually I expect that to soften a little and mellow, but it did no with this beer. I am usually quite fond of SN beers, but I am not sure I'd have another of these.
