Went to the GSB brewery with a few friends the other day and picked up a growler of it to take home and try.

A -- Nice amber brown color. About a finger-wide head that dissipated quickly.

S -- Piney hops and some citrus tones.

T -- Some citrus on the front end -- lemon, orange peel, etc. The piney hops hits you on the back side.

M -- Medium carbonation, which is exactly what I like. There's a creamy texture to it.

O -- I was expecting a bit more from this brew but it isn't bad. I'd recommend it to friends and would pick up another growler from the brewery but it's not something that I "must have" in my refrigeration.

A: very clear; copper colored; with a fairly aggressive pour, got 1 finger head that dissipated within a couple minutes; a little lacing;

S: really nice; strawberry, pineapple, and pine;

T: taste is subdued as compared to the nose; almost nothing up front; pine kicks in at mid-palate and it has a moderately bitter finish with almost no accompanying flavor;

M: medium bodied; lightly carbonated;

O: The taste really threw me off; overall, it's fine and very drinkable, but having a muted flavor isn't a great selling point for me; I will definitely try it again to see if it was the bottle or perhaps my palate;
