Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a perfect pint glass. 1/7

Pours medium amber, cloudy, some foam on top. Lots of lacing. Spiky pine citrus nose that bursts from the glass. Light sweet malt, subdued floral paired with a pine back.. All expertly balanced below the malt. Light and powerful. Excellent.

Had this on 2014-01-01 in Columbia, PA

A - Mostly opaque dirty orange with a 1/4-finger off-white head and moderate lacing.

S - Fresh red grapefruit, pine, hop cone floral. A nice potpourri of hop aromas. It's not real strong but it is very pleasant.

T - Nice burst of orange citrus flesh and zest up front, light but balancing bread and caramel malt flavor, flavorful leafy-vegetal/tobacco. Finishes at first like an alcohol-infused orange candy drop but this quickly yields to significant but not overpowering bitterness. These flavors really work for me.

M - Thick body and light carbonation. Syrupy (not cloying), resinous, lightly prickly, substantial, coats-the-mouth in a great way.

O - I really enjoyed this holiday-gifted beer. Very satisfying and a great way to say hello to 2014. This is my favorite so far from this brewery.
