Pours a golden with a white head, thickness is apparent from the beginning. Looks live velvet with a huge sticky head.
Intense sweet pinesap aroma, this is a holiday beer. Citrus rind shows up in the background.
Sweet almost butterscotch and toffee malt dominate as an incoming wave of hop flavor and bitterness approaches. It seems as if the pine and citrus are going to overwhelm but they fall short and maintain a perfect balance. Alcohol is slick and sticky, finishes dry.
Full bodied, light smooth carbonation.
You could guzzle this, it's that good. Alcohol is hardly an issue while drinking. Amazing beer, perfectly balanced. PERFECTLY.

Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
