The OPA is decent...I'm not sure I got a fresh bottle or not. It was off the Binny's singles shelf. The beer seemed as thou it was going to be an over primed bottle....but I was able to pour it without much flare up. The beer poured a slightly hazy gold with decent white head that is leaving a lace. The smell is more malty than hoppy. The taste is a okay....I believe this is call a pale ale because of color....not so much as for hops used. The mouthfeel was medium in body with big carbonation. Overall its a good beer. I'd like to try it again just to see if the bottle I had was extra primed.

Method- Straight from bottle, Cellar temperature.

Appearance- Hazy, peachy, light amber. Cream colored head. Overall, looks nice.

Smell- Bitter, rich, piney smell.

Taste- Overwhelming pine tree flavor. A lasting, unpleasant bitterness. Becomes more bearable after a 2nd bottle. (and I typically like bitter beers) Imagine hops + pine needles. Not pleasant.

Mouthfeel- Pleasant, lightly carbonated. However, the ale almost coats the inside of your mouth with a slick feeling that won't go away.

Overall- Fails in one of the most important categories, taste. But hey, if you love the taste of earth and pine needles, this might be your holy grail.
The other categories are above average, but it's hard to appreciate the nice things about this beer when it tastes like your chewing up pine needles.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Shit, I stop paying attention for a couple months and all of a suddenly (as my brother would colorfully put it) Choc distributes to my area. Fair play, I s'pose. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by over a finger of white foam. The nose comprises mixed greens, flowers, light sweetgrass, and a few drops of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, but the proceedings are dominated by a new-coming pall of spicy pine resin, something that really doesn't jive with anything else, much less my tongue. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda slick feel. Overall, this stuff just didn't do it for me, mostly due to that weird spicy green character. Pass.
