The beer pours a syrupy orange, almost amber, with a huge sticky, cream white head that seems to be yellowing and is made up of different sized bubbles. The head leaves a sticky, fat, web-like lacing of fluffy bubbles. In body, the beer is clear but darker and slightly murky. On the nose, the beer smells resinous, like a big ass, wet pine cone shoved into a light caramel bread. The pine is resinous and sticky on the nose, and very inviting. From the can, the smell is a little crisper with a touch of citrus. On the tongue the beer tastes bitter and dry with some nice bitter hoppy acids and a very faint touch of malt sweetness. In flavor, the beer begins as slightly sweet bread and then explodes into ruinous, bitter pine that bites crisply across the palate moving from pine needles to pine cone with a touch of caramel. An earthy, herbal bitter also travels in the mouth and rounds out the bitter flavors, providing some nice balance to the bitters. The finish is bitter pine with a touch of medicinal flavors, which continues into the aftertaste and becomes slightly more medicinal, but in a nice and linger way. From the can, the beer carries more citric flavors that add grapefruit flavors to the mouth and actually make the beer even better in my opinion. In the mouth, the beer feels medium in body with a syrupy finish on the throat and a creamy carbonation that does nothing to mellow the bitter bite of the beer. The mouth is left dry and sticky, screaming for another sip. Overall, this is a drink that bites back. It’s not the hoppiest thing in all creation, but it has some beautiful west coast, American hoppy bitters. If you like pine in your beer then you will love this beer, for it is a hopheads beer for sure! Newburyport Brewing has some damn good beers in its repertoire already, and I cannot wait to see what else the cook up. Try this beer. It’s even better from the can! Yeat!
