Hazy orange tinted copper color with particulates in suspension. A small head becomes a bubbly film in a few seconds. Lacing is very nice. Huge pine syrup, pungent medicinal aroma. I love it. The taste reminds me of cannabis. Its very resiny. Man I love some of these West Coast brews. What they do with hops out there is similar to what Brett Favre does with a football. Pure magic. This is a bitter beer. In a great way. I liken it to the Bastard a little bit. The oily, resiny, pungent hop contributions are just magnificent. There appears to be some decent malt backing as well. Body is about medium-full. This beer is not for the weak of heart. Gotta thank Matt Maples for recommending this one to me on the horn a few weeks ago. (756 characters)

This winter ale is truly unique. Pale color, but with quite a heavy body. This is also one of the most heavily hopped winter ales I have ever experienced. Plenty of IBUs to go around. Alcohol content gives another reason to stay in out of the cold. (252 characters)
