A: Poured a beautiful thick head which did the guines cascade effect which thrilled me. Cloudy golden beer with a touch of very light copper in the center.
S: Oh man. This is glorious. All kinds of spicy herbal piney hops that are screaming drink me! I think the piney smells are the most prominent, with the spicyness close behind them. The smell is simply awesome. If I could give this a 6.0 for this category I would.
T: Spicy hops are for sure in the front of the taste. Followed by a quick refreshing herbal sting, then surprisingly a brief taste of malt. Very well done, wish it had a little more malt backbone though,
M: Surprisingly light bodied and maybe a tad over carbonated. Not a huge fan of the body, but I bet it would taste great on a hot summer day.
D: Mmmmm this is a tasty brew. I think I could drink another and another. The 6.9% abv is not prominent and I think I could bring the beer to my lips for the smell alone. Since it is a refreshing beer it helps the drinkability.

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
Serving type: on-tap
