2.46/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.25

A: Pours a clear orange with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin cap with good lacing.

S: A little sweet citrus up front with some notes of caramel malts and then dry, bitter pine. The aromas are pretty muted.

T: A strong, dry, piney bitterness hits up front and lingers well after. There is an underlying diacetyl buttery flavor as well. Not much else going on here.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is nicely carbonated and would be drinkable if not for the strong bitterness and butter flavors.

O: A bit of a dud here. Overly bitter, lacking complexity, and the presence of diacetyl are all pretty big turn-offs. It looks pretty and has good body, at least.

2.91/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

A: Pours a very lightly hazy golden honey in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation that slowly rises from the bottom of the glass and some copper highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of mottled thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet caramel malts with lighter aromas of citrus/orange hops and strong pine hop.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of slightly sweet caramel malts and moderate to strong flavors of pine hops with a light touch of citrus/grapefruit pith hops. There are moderate to heavy amounts of bitterness which lingers throughout the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: I'm not the biggest fan of this beer, it tastes almost like the hops were old or boiled too long giving much more bitterness than I would expect for the style. Don't think I would recommend this one.
