Picked this up at a great beer store, Tops Liquor, while at a conference in Phoenix. Hazy copper pour with nice caramel-white head and decent lacing. Nose is a bit disappointing. It's all pine with a hint of alcohol and not much else. Almost like medicine. The taste is all malty caramel sweetness and alcohol at the start. Very piney but the hop bite is conspiculously subdued. Some bitterness kicks in towards the end, but the balance is definitely leaning to the sweet side. The alcohol is not well hidden and the mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. This beer improves towards the end, but it was a bit disappointing considering how highly it's rated.
