22oz bottle labeled Best by 10/11/14 and 5.9% ABV. Served in a pint glass, the beer is golden in color with a giant golden head. Very foamy. Delicious tropical fruit aroma. Intensely palatable and deliciously drinkable. Great balance between a sold biscuity malt backbone and a judicious use of hops. Carbonation is quite restrained in this bottle. Finishes clean, mostly, with a slight aftertaste of piney hops. Would drink again.

bomber from es fred meyer 6/25/14. pours a deep golden yellow, very clear - though not crystal clear - wonderful thick off-white head dies down to leave a thin layer, semi-sticky lacing all the way down. grassy clean hoppy smell, fresh, summer-like, yet near the end of the glass there's a hint of astringency. taste is a bit of a let down, though it's not quite my favorite style, and it says experimental on the label. hops are there, but not as citrus-like and i'd prefer. mouth feel is decent, with a snappy finish, and carbonation hangs around for a bit.

Pours a finger and half of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is just lots of pine, but good.
The taste is nicely balanced pine bitterness and honey sweetness.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
It's very drinkable and tasty. The lower carbonation was nice too.
