look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from tap into a shaker. Poured yellow-orange with a one finger slightly off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, pine, citrus, and pine hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, pine, citrus, and citrus hop. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a not a bad brew at all. Definitely had a big hoppy profile going on here in both the aroma and flavor aspect of it. The followthrough on this one was very crisp with a good flavor and aroma. This one is a must try if you have not already.

Serving type: on-tap
