Pours a deep copper with a two finger head that settles nicely leaving big globs of foam down the side of the glass,aromas of pine needles and some nuttiness.Taste is a hop heaven piney and resiny with nutty malt backbone very dry makes you want more.A soapiness in the finish may keep the drinkability a little lower but if you like hops you'll like this for sure,well made and highly drinkable well done.

So juicy and resinous. Creamy body and brisk carbonation make for a super and drinkable mouthfeel. Floral and bright with an aggressive bitterness. Finish is slick and juicy yet dry. Definitely love this beer!

Pours a clear, bright golden body with a great, sticky two-finger white head that leaves great lacing.

Aroma of citrus hops can be smelled while pouring the beer. Floral and sweet. Aromas of oranges and just the slightest bit of grapefruit.

Orangey citrus hops dominate with a slightly sweet malt backbone. Not a grapefruit bomb by any means. Just a hint of it in there for bitterness. Strong bitterness without being overpowering - thank you sweet malt and alcohol. Alcohol is well hidden.

Really drinkable and very tasty. Reminds me a good bit of Nugget Nectar in the way that it is hoppy and bitter while being balanced nightly with malt sweetness.
