Poured from an undated 12 oz. bottle: deep, clear golden to bronze with a sustained white head.
Upon opening the bottle, there was a strong piney aroma that quickly dissipated. Poured into the glass, the aroma never attains that huge aroma; it is faintly piney and floral with a sweet maltiness.
This is an extremely refreshing and drinkable ale. The flavor has a nice bitterness followed by a pleasant and faint vanilla maltiness. The ale is very balanced, though the hoppiness returns to linger on the palate.
Light in body with a refreshing, spritzy carbonation. The soft maltiness battles the hop bitters on the palate before a satisfying bitterness wins out.
The label states this is a "special homicidally hoppy ale". To me it is a hoppy, American pale ale. Either way, it is a very good ale that I highly recommend.

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
