look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A - Pours an appetizing mostly orange (slightly amber) into my Charleston Beer Exchange globe glass with a nice finger of light caramel colored head with absolutely fantastic lacing. Retention is OK, after about 3 minutes coverage is spotty at the top however a thick outer ring hangs onto the side of the glass.
S - Bitter hops mostly resinous pine but also some citrusy peel and pepper aroma. Mildly sweet from the caramel, but the hops definitely steal the show here.
T - Resinous bitterness and lots of spice transforms into a citrusy flavor. Aftertaste is dry and bitter, doesnt linger too long. No depth to the flavor imo. The alcohol astringency is not shy in this one
M - Chewy/medium body, strong wet (opposed to dry) bitterness really hits the back of the jaw.
O - Pretty decent, looks fantastic, a little too peppery/astringent. Definitely good, but not as good as the appearance and aroma led me to hope for.

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass after all the beer was gone.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.
Serving type: on-tap
