Bottle from northyorksammy.
Hazy pale blonde colour, one finger of white head, good lace. Smell is of sprunce and pine, quite hoppy, citrus fruit in there, biscuity malt backbone, lots of hops in here though. Taste has a sprucey forest note, citrus following, fruity flavours, grapefruit and pine, good amount of maqlt in the finish, nice bitterness with a light alcohol aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium body, resinious and oily, good feel. Solid stuff, flavourful stuff, very drinkable.

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.
