3.85/5 rDev -6.8%
Bottled served in a weizen glass pour fairly clear golden amber with a one finger off-white head with good retention and average lacing, fluffy. Smells chiefly of piney hops with a bit of grassy and grapefruit notes. Starts a bit sweet caramel and toffee malts but quickly become piney bitter and moderate amount of alcohol taste that isn't entirely pleasant with the weak malt background. Medium body, moderate carbonation, chewy. Average-low drink-ability considering the harsh character and booze taste, I was expecting to like this one more.

Finally found a freshish bottle on shelves. Bottled Oct 09.
The beer comes out with a clear amber colored body and a off white head. Great retention and lacing.
The nose isn't much. Pine, citrus, and alcohol.
Big pop of bitterness. Super smooth. The mouth feel is the best thing about this beer. Too bad the alcohol presence is detectable even when fairly cold. Lots of piney hops here.
Glad I tried this so I know I will have more money for Yeti's instead.
