22 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. No bottling info is given but this was purchased the first day Ledger's had it in stock. Abv comes in at 9.1%.
A-A very clear orangish amber with minimal head. The head forms a bubbly ring on one side of the glass and forms a few bubbly islands in the middle. Nice lace is left in the glass.
S-Great WC nose with the usual aromas associated with the style. Lots of pine, pineapple, and grapefruit.
T-Pine and pineapple come fast. There is some caramel malt midway but it gives in to grapfruit bitterness. In between sips I pick up on some orange zest. I would not consider this one to be boozy, but the alcohol is definitely detected drying out my tongue.
M-Medium bodied with a comfortable level of carbonation. Lots of pine resin coats the mouth.
D-Great for a 9.1% beer. Not overly filling.
Glad to see BP has brought this back up to Northern California. It is still as good as it was when I tried it well over a year ago. I still prefer its lighter brother Sculpin, but the other bottle in my fridge won't last long.

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.

Clear gold color with a touch of orange. White head that faded rapidly into a thin collar and wisps. Aroma is faint citrus, grainy malt sweetness, slightly piney. Nice hop bitterness, medium-high carbonation, medium-low body. Taste is grainy malt, grassy/floral hop and grapefruit citrus, very faint spice.
