A: a deep, very clear, orange body. an almost amber-like orange color. head is white and thick. retention dies to a rim and lacing is there, but a bit scarce.
S: the pine resins are so deep and entice the palate to take a sip. no sniff can go sip-less. caramel and vanilla back up the hugely pine-happy hoppy aroma.
T: boatloads of bitterness. wow. caramel, toffee, and bitter pine trees. the hops and the malt combine to make such a delicious bittersweet combo it is hard not to quaff at a very high pace. the bitterness lingers long into the finish. delicious.
M: low/moderate carbonation on a very full body. just what the style needs.
D: man this is some good shit. so stoked to see this in 12oz bottles at such a moderate price. definitely worth picking up if you ever come across it.
Serving type: bottle
