Bottled 1/31/14. Current date 3/7/14.

Poured an attractive amber color in a stein with a 4 finger head which
resolved itself in a few minutes.

Aroma- very strong pine with a hint of vanilla.

The mouth feel is carbonated yet not overdone.

The aroma transitions nicely to the piney taste, which is not as accentuated as the aroma.
The beer finishes with good hoppiness followed by a light bitterness.

Overall, a very good beer. I would have liked a bit more fruit and pine in the taste.
The hoppiness was quite good and the finish was smoother/lighter than other beers in the style.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle that appears to be stamped 1/30/13. Sampled on June 18, 2013.

The pour is a very attractive medium amber but there's little to no head and the carbonation seems a little slow and stagnant.

The aroma has a fine floral character like the blossoms of a New England spring. Also a moderate caramel malt character but it it still overpowered by the hops.

The body is medium with a vague acidic texture.

Wonderful hoppy taste with additional flavors of biscuit malts and sweetness. But even though the hops are predominant they still do not result in a biting bitterness.

Beautiful copper red color with a tan head. Good lace. Sweet malt and fruity hops in both the nose and taste. Sugary, sweet liquid. Great balance of malt and hop and definitely not as hop forward as I expected but its awesome for the style. Smooth and easy drinking. I had high expectations for this beer and they were met. Delicious brew. Still good in May when I think it was released in March.
