look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- A beautiful red-amber color with a head that laces nicely.

S- There's a hint of citrus upfront followed by a heavy pine aroma.

T- Thick upfront with a shock of bitterness that mellows out into sweet malt flavors with a hint of roasted malt. The finish smooths out with a mild lingering pine hop bitterness.

M- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

D- This brew is definitely delicious and has you begging for more. It's a nice change of pace from your basic IPA and Pale Ales.

This is basically Nugget Nectar's little brother.
