Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue XI:

Great formation of head with great retention to support it, brownish amber color that is bright and clear. Big and flamboyant hop nose of pine resin, grapefruit zest, hemp seeds and a hint of dark tobacco. All of that barely lets the malt transmit anything to the aroma. Creamy, smooth, medium body. Whoa, momma, yes indeed there are some hops here, and what we mean by "some," is a lot. Sporting an Ameri-hop character throughout it starts with a big splash of bitterness and then moves more into flavoring with suggestions of evergreen, grapefruit rind, hemp oil and fresh cut grass. The malt backbone is pretty damn sturdy and while it may be shadowed by the hops, it mostly lays a blankets of caramel and toasted grain on the palate. A tad fruity with a clean, warming alcohol middle to end; quick flash of raisins and plums. Finishes a little bitter and leans toward dry.

A lovely holiday beer, very well balanced and straight, aimed at the style. The Christmas Goose may have met its match.
