Poured from the bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The body is of golden color with a large white head formed upon pouring. The head has a nice persistence, but eventually slowly fades to give very nice lacing.
Smell – The hop aromas are plentiful. A nice piney hop aroma is the strongest. This pine is mixed with some grassy, earthy, and grapefruit hop aromas as well with an ever so light bready malt aroma. Overall a nice complex aroma.
Taste – A biscuity maltiness with a heavy but smooth pine hop flavor start out the taste profile. There is a very light citrus mixed into the taste as well. As the taste advances, the hop taste while still remaining piney, starts to transition to a more bitter flavor. Bitter earthy tasting hops come on strong toward the middle and the end of the taste. These bitter hop flavors then take the taste to its end and leave a lingering “dirty” tasting bitterness on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is on the creamier side with a moderate carbonation level. Very suiting for the beer but nothing too exceptional.
Overall – The beer has some nice characteristics with a nice mix of hoppy tastes. The major drawback it the rather average body and the somewhat unpleasant bitterness it leaves on the tongue.
