Bottled sample via oakbluff. Orange in colour with moderate carbonation. Surprisingly American C-hop forward on the nose, with notes of citrus and pine along with some smooth vanilla caramel malts in there too. Some odd flavors going on that are hard to pin down. There's definitely a green wood note, along with some odd floral and confectioner's sugar elements. Some moderate malt character provides some stability, but the palate just seems muddled to me. Clean finishing. Not really the Scotch ale or X-mas seasonal that you' d expect, but still fairly drinkable.
