look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Can poured into my tulip. It's a light copper with a 1 finger, white head. A little soapy in appearance. Legs slide down quickly but laces the grass nicely. Smell is fairly strong. Resinous, piney, and a very small hint fruit at the back end. Taste is very pine and resin right up front. I'd say the resin is a little more prominent. Finishes with a bready maltiness to it. Well balances but muted. Feel is dry with a lingering bitterness. Crisp and medium bodied with a very low carbonation.

It's strange that I really liked all the components of this beer but thought the taste was the weakest. I think it was just a hair muted in comparison to the nose. Still a nice, enjoyable brew.
