look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance – It pours a clear gold with a huge foamy head. The head sticks around and never goes away.
Smell – It smells like I am walking through a pine forest in the UP just after a rainfall. There is just a hint of malt in there somewhere.
Taste - A good balance of hops and malt. The pine resin of the hops is strong but not overpowering the sweetness of the malt.
Mouthfeel – The balance of the malts and hops play well on the together with just the right amount of carbonation to keep the head until the experience is complete.
Overall – There was no way that this beer was going to live up to the hype of the ratings and the beer snobs. It was a great beer but nothing that I would go to great lengths to search out. Though, if I could find it at my local beer store, it would be on the “To Buy List”.
