Aroma: Fresh pine needles all the way. Bold and up front. Lemon zest notes as well. Smells like I'm walking though a pine forest. No esters and resiny, piney notes blast the nose.
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber pour with a low white cap that fades and rings the glass.
Flavor: More of the same. Pine resin, slightly woody, a hint of mint and herbal flavors, along with a touch of bready malt that is understated but provides a quick balance point at the end. Finish is clean, bitter, and dry. Balance is decidedly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly oily, and a hint of astringency.
Overall impression: I love the dryness and the pine in this beer. I wouldn't want it all the time but it's a unique twist and one I'm glad to try. Would be a great Christmas beer to break out of all the spice bomb brown ales that flood the market. This is like Christmas tree in a glass! Worth a try.

Enjoyed this brew on tap at Jackie O’s brewpub in Athens Ohio out of a pint glass.
A: Pours a clear golden hue with a white head that slowly dissipates leaving a decent trail.
S: Hoppy aroma.
T: Similar to the smell there is a bitter hoppy aroma with a slight pine and citrus background.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: Really good IPA – highly recommended.
Serving type: on-tap
