Great beer. I Had it from the tap at the Blue Lobster Store. Very crisp taste? It has sweet pine and fruit flavor. This beer is very flavorable. The color is golden brown with a very thick white head. The smell was strong and very good. This is one of those beers that is very hard to get but worth it, if you can get your hands on it.

Serving type: on-tap

From notes, On-tap at the brewery on 10-18-13

A - Clear gold with two fingers of white sudsy head, thick lacing.

T - Bready malt base with a really nice citrus taste, some spicy rye on the end.
M - Refreshing a tad sticky
O - Great APA, tons of flavor, well balanced.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, straw-gold coloring with a frothy, foamy, bright white head. Good retention and great cling. Nose of resiny hops, heavy pine and pitch, with a subtle toasty backbone. Wow! Flavors of rich toast and floral notes forward, with a bitter and resin hops follow. Very balanced, with a biscuit and bitter aftertaste. Hoppy enough to challenge IPAs. Dry, clean finish, with a bitter hop linger. Awesome beer!
