Picked up the SA Longshot mixed pack on a recent beer excursion to Michigan. Been waiting to try this mix.
Pours a Dark golden amber in color with a nice inch of very carbonated white head forming on the pour. Plenty of carbonation going on inside the glass. Smell fairly balanced piney hops and enough malt to back it up. Taste is bittery, piney hops. There's still a lot of carbonation in this beer. Between that and the bitterness from the hops, they actually detract from one another. Really good hop flavor though. This is a very solid effort from SA homebrew competition. I would drink this more often if it were to be available.
