22oz brown glass pry-top with no date. Picked this up on my recent trip to Wine Gallery Brookline (MA).
Appearance: A clear, medium brown with hints of red around the edges. The head is mostly white, recedes quickly, but leaves a little lacing.
Nose: Caramel malt, pine nettle, sweet grapefruit, and maybe fig?
Palate: Medium to light carbonation, medium bodied. There's some round caramel malt sweetness up front, but the hop bitterness creeps right in and is prickly on the tongue. It's a little boozy, but in a dry, prickly way, not a sweet way. Flavors are similar to the aromas, with sweet lemon on the midpalate, and very dry on the finish. The finish is dry and long, but focused on the dried leaves and pine needle notes.
Notes: This is a seriously tasty beer for the money. Glad to see it comes in affordable 6 packs. I could definitely see sessioning this for a least part of a night without getting sick of it. I just wonder with how dry the finish is, if it might dry my mouth out too much after two or three? Guess I'll just have to find out sometime!

This is quite the luscious treat! It pours medium brown, with an amazing head. The aroma is hoppy and malty.
The taste is a robust full bodied, hoppy thing. Wonderful and unique. The aftertaste is strong and sweet.
Overall, it is a good, robust brew, but a bit overpowering for many foods.

Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a nice white head that leaves a nice ring of lacing around the glass.
Smell is very citrusy up front with some sweet and bitter notes added in. A very complex sleeping beer.
Taste is excellent. Tastes just like it smells, bitter yet sweet. An absolute perfect balance of flavors. Starts out sweet citrus followed by slightly bitter hops taste.
Overall an excellent beer with a lot of aroma and flavor balanced perfection. I heard great things about this beer and it did not disappoint. Best beer I've had from Troegs by far. Highly recommended!
