From the can, this beer looks to pour a medium yellow but ends up in the glass a bit darker than that with an amber thickness in the opaque depths. The head, slightly yellow-tinted, is a frothy and creamy one that begins just more than a finger tall and doesn't seem to ever recede past half a finger. A thick ring of lacing is left wherever it rests.
The aroma is just a big hit of pine right off the bat. It's not even just resinous; I get just as much cone/needle, if that makes sense, a little bit different than some pine-forward hop profiles. It is fresh and raw, like the sticky sap on the bark when it's practically still wet. There's some citrus in there, too, and malts keep it from being astringent while the hops are absolutely the star.
The flavor is very much the same, quite bitter but just (and barely) short of having an aspirin-like quality until the end of the sip, where it sneaks into the finish. There's a light graininess beneath that. There is some sweetness like citrus, pretty juicy, complementing the hard bitterness. It smooths and evens out as it sits.
The feel is frothy, a light crispness keeping it active but seeming to focus on smoothness. The medium body seems to thin more than slightly toward the end of the sip.

Reviewed at Rising Sun CG, Glacier National Park, MT. Full notes taken to my phone when out of service area.
A- Poured from the 12oz can to a goblet with a somewhat murky and cloudy orange body. A white head forms with a creamy texture up to one finger. Retention is fairly good and a thick ring and plentiful pillows remain. Lacing starts with webs and plenty of spots down beyond that.
S- Hops lead the way with a mix of stone fruits and citrus as well as some pine. Slight amount of pale cracked malts and bready yeast.
T- Citrus zest hops like grapefruit and orange seem to gain on the other notes of tangerine, pine, floral and spicy hops. It seems to be cleaner here with a tiny amount of sweetness and yeast influence.
MF- Medium thick body with carbonation at a moderately high level. Texture is silky as well as frothy. Medium-high bitterness at the end but it is a clean one.
Strong citrus hops with plenty of other character as well as a bitter bite that ends the beer smoothly.
