Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a hazy orange color with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast, but leaves a decent level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a pine smell. Mixed with this are notes of a caramel and citrus sweetness as well as a lighter grapefruit and grassy hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and light citrus sweet flavor. Mixed with these tastes is a pine hopiness. As the taste advances the sweetness fades and more pine hop comes to the tongue. More toward the end, other hop flavors of a grassy and grapefruit nature mix with the increasing pine hop and the decreasing sweetness, to produce a slightly bitter and drier flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the just above average side in terms of creaminess with the carbonation level being rather average. Pretty nice for the hop as well as the transitions from sweet to more bitter.
Overall – Rather easy drinking, starting out sweeter, but drying out and becoming more bitter toward the end. Not bad.
