4.5/5 rDev +8.2%
Poured from a growler Into a Tree House Brewing stemmed glass.
The color is orange with yellow highlights with a finger of white head that leaves just a slight touch of lacing on the glass.
The smell has green grass aroma that gives some hints of earthy hops. There is a definite pine aroma in the nose that has some slight sweet candy aroma tied to it.
The taste is piney and resiny and really has a hop bite. There are touches of grapefruit and some citrus notes. The earthy spruce-tree flavor comes back toward the end and nips at the sides of your cheeks with bitterness.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied but does leave at times needing to really concentrate to wrap your head around this beer. There is a smooth drinkable feel that does offset an aftertaste that gives even more bitterness but does not wreck your palate.

Just picked up at the brewery. Poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice slightly hazy golden hue with a good big three finger fluffy white head that fades to leave light side lacing and a nice creamy half finger blanket. Quite nice.
S - Aromas of nice tropical citrus, flashes of pineapple, tangerine, really nice pine notes as well especially towards the finish. Lightly bitter, no traces of alcohol. Oh yeah, really really dig this nose.
T - Taste is more of the same. Juicy tropical notes, juicy citrus and tropical fruit, light grapefruit and loads of tangerine and a nice little melon flavour thing going on. Bright fresh hops, flashes of malty character that helps offer a backbone to the hops. The finish is very, very mild bitterness, no alcohol apparent. Really dig the interplay of melon, tangerine, and tropical.
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp and clean yet somehow 'soft n fluffy'. Works excellent with the beer.
O - Overall, how the hell did I go this long without having tried this beer? I'm embarrassed. Seriously. Anyways, definitely reminds me of a lighter Julius or like others have said Hill Farmstead Edward. Really, really well done. Hats off to you guys, wow.
