From bottle to an english pub mug.
Clear golden with a huge two inch head and nice thick lace.
Smells lick a pine forrest and/or being slapped in the face with a pine tree branch and a bag of car air freshner's.
Taste is a smooth blend of high alpha piney and citrus hops with a nice melding of malts and honey.
Freakin' smooth as all hell a real hop lovers delight.
Delisiously quaffable at 10%, ouch!

A very light yellow brew with lots of haze and very moderate lacing. Nothing remarkable. Small white head too.
Nice smooth aroma. Slight musty aroma. Lemon and orange. Peanuts with noticeable spruce tips. NICE!
Great dry earthy bitterness with good green after taste. Sweetness is well placed. Only the wet slimy after taste detracts, not greatly, but still detracts. Nice well rounded flavors, complex, deep, unique. You can definitely taste the spruce tips, both in flavors and feel.
Well done, Shorts!!! A great brew, not experimental, but well thought out and executed. Thanks abanton for the hookup, glad I finally got around to this one! Held up well too.

This pours a clear white gold with nice foam.
It has a light, grassy aroma which turns into a crisp lemony grass flavored hop profile with pleasant bittering and a delightful finish. This is spruce tips? Fantastic!
Bright, clean, crisp and delicious. A definite stand-out.
