Thanks to kubrick215 for sharing.

Pours a hazy dark blood orange color with tangerine edges and a 2.5 finger frothy white head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap.  Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind.  

Complex aroma with earthy and citrus hops,  light fruit, pine needle, alcohol, oak barrel and spicy peppers.  Toasted oak at first with hop oils and resinous pine notes.  Slight chalky pepper presence with light fruit, citrus zest, pepper, damp wood and bready yeast.

Medium bodied with dry oak and sticky hop bitterness that lingers throughout.  Earthy and resinous pine needle flavor with citrus fruit, pale malts, biscuit, caramel, dry oak and a subtle boozy barrel character.  Slight dryness but sweet alcohol and fruit notes balance things out.  Pepper presence lingers in the finish but isn't noticeable otherwise.  Decent but doesn't really stand out other than having a strange combo of flavors.
