3.58/5  rDev -24.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

500ml bottle served in a small tulip.

Appearance: Clear deep amber with a weak head.
Surprisingly mild aroma with relatively little hops.

FLAVOR: More sweet caramel malts. Mildly bitter aftertaste.

O: unique and refreshing but mild PA rather than IPA.. Recommended as such.

Best by 02-2015, review 9/11/14

Appearance: Big nutty, caramel notes. Pine is present but behind the malt for sure (3.75)

Flavor: Grassy/pine cotton candy. Huge malt backbone and very sweet. (3.75)

Mouthfeel: Extremely sticky and full bodied, medium-light carbonation (3.75)

Overall: Too sticky and grassy for me, not a huge fan (3.80)
