Thanks to skinnyelvis for including this in my ba anniv. package. Shared with my brother after a long day of work. Review from notes--This was had last night.

A: Pours a hazy peach color with a thin white head. Slight retention with bubbles making their way to the top. Thick lacing down the glass.
S: Pine sap hops coupled with those always noticeable grapefruit flavors. Malty background tries to keep the hops a bit subdued, but their no match. Floral hop presence with a spicyness to them also.
T/M: Hops right from the get go. Grapefruit, citrus fruit, pears laced with a sharp and hot spicyness. Prickly pine needles oozing with sap and tar stick to the tongue. Resiny, oily, and juicy leave the mouth dry. Thicker body and at 9% it's quite drinkable. Quite bitter finish leading to a spicy grassy hop finish.
D: A very wonderful beer to indulge in. High abv is masked by the grapefruit and other hop flavors, although it comes through slightly in the spicyness. Very smooth. Almost bordering on a barleywine in my opinion. Nice one from Green Flash.
