12oz bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a clear amber with an off white head on top. Not much visible carbonation. Leaves some lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Very pleasant aroma going on here. Loads of fresh hops dominate the forefront

T: Balanced flavor leaning toward hoppy. Malts are solid providing a base for the hop to flower from. Citrus and piney hops with a bit of a spicy character too. Lager qualities still shine. Bready toasty quality comes out more as it warms.

M: Light to medium body with fairly low carbonation. Bit of a nectar like stickiness from the hop but remains crisp upon finish.

Overall I'm very impressed with this one and will certainly be headed back for more. I've always liked malt forward yet hoppy beers and this combines those with a lager base that is superb.

Thanks to Kegatron for gifting me with a bottle of this. 12oz bottle poured into a standard pint. The brew appears a deep copper color with a yellowish stained finger of khaki head. Some spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The smell is piney with hops, slightly vegetative, herbal and catty. It is somewhat spicy with grass and a touch of solvent alcohol to round things out.

The taste is pine forward, quite resinous, herbal, grassy and carty. A light amount of fruity alcohol before getting somewhat solvent with alcohol.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is interestingly bitter and solvent for a lager but worth trying if you get the chance. Thanks again Heath.

Growler poured into my new Jack's Abby shaker pint.

A -- Beautiful amber color. Alternatively brown, orange, or red with different lights. Small head but decent lacing.

N -- Piney/resiny hops mostly. Hint of caramel or toasted malts.

T -- Boom. Hoppy AND malty AND pure deliciousness. It's a little bit spicy with hops, but they are mostly of the pine note style. LIttle bit of citrus i thought sometimes, but I couldnt quite place it. Malt sweetness on the backbone.

M -- Nice mouthfeel on this one. Good carbonation, especially out of the growler. Good bubblage.

O -- I really enjoy this for the late fall/winter months. Warms you up with a good alcohol content. Cheers!

A: Pours an amber color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a nice cap

S: Good mix of malt and hops. Hops are earthy/spicy and piney with a hint of fruitiness. Malts are lightly bready and grainy

T: Starts off with a quick hit of the malts, and then the hops provide a nice spicy kick. Breadiness comes in mid-palate, along with some earthy notes. Finishes with a bit of graininess and a touch of sweetness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very nicely done brew with some nice minute complexities. Easy to drink, plus it now comes in 6-packs! Definitely recommended

Pours a perfect amber orange with a brilliant clarity and a stream of bubbles rising ot the top. A thick pillowy head of foam adorns the prettiest color beer I have seen in a long time. Leaves sheets of wet lace. Nose is bright with fruity and floral hops. A bit of subtle citrus and stone fruit quality. There si a rich deep malt in this that sports both grainy bread and a light brown sugar. Taste is handsome. Restrained and subtle hops lend a citrus twang to a very earthy grain that has a bit of baked sweetness on it. Tiny bit of resin to coat the throat and leave a rich aftertaste. Brown sugar, hop floral and a light hop spice that goes so well with the earthy and lightly sweet grain. The carbonation is a bit tingly and the hops give a seductive little sideways glance to this beer and they finish with the smallest bitter.

Just fabulous. Hearty, rich, textured and full of flavor. The stone fruit in this is the surprise and the sensation. it softens the hop character to the point of luxury. It enhances the grain sweetness but doesn't overshadow it. It takes to the bit of hop spice and makes this beer dapper and a little bit sweet.
