Canned on 12-10-13

Pours an effervescent copper/auburn with a pinky of sand colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Peppers, dark fruit

T: Figs, pears, & smokey pepper up front. Jammy notes as this warms, a touch of persimmon & a little more heat, a touch of golden raisin & drynesss as well. Finishes with subtle smokey heat, a whisper of leafy hops & pears/dates

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation

Subtle use of pepper heat & a nice sweetness to counter it. I'll take this over straight up heat, are you listening Stone? Drinks easy

I've been impressed with both beers I've tried from Piney River.

If you're looking for something a little more mild than habenero sculpin this is a great beer. Right away you get some heat which fades to a real gummy sweetness. The beer is a little surprising in that it finishes with that nice smokey chipotle zing. I thought this was a very nicely balanced beer. Great, non-overpowering, yet unique beer for the start of your next tasting event. Cheers Piney River!
