4.88/5 rDev +24.2%
got at short's a couple days ago.
A- poured a transparent golden color. frothy white head that left a nice bit of lacing.
S- just some crazy pine needles.
T- the pine needles are hit more with the hops i can tell. i drank a 12oz bottle yesterday and have to say that. really delicious.
M- seems more lighter bodied coming in the growler. good carbonation.
Drinkability- shoulda got another growler!
Overall- the growler tastes alil different than the bottle. like i said it seems like the hops are coming through more there. really tasty!

Sampled on 8-7-10
Pours a hazy golden yellow color, with a fizzy white head that leaves a great ring of lacing that covers the entire glass as it settles.
Smell is extreme pine needles, with a huge amount of citrus hop sweetness to push it over the edge. Unlike anything I've ever had, and unbelievably good.
Taste is exactly where the smell leads you, thick pine resin flavor that is so strong it almost has a meaty quality. The hops come in next, lightening things up with flavors of citrus and even more pine. The finish is thick and sweet, pine all the way. Very strong, but not overwhelming. Ridiculously well made.
Mouthfeel is perfect, thick to go with the badass pine and hops.
Drinkability is surprisingly good, the alcohol is well handled and the pine, amazingly, is very refreshing.
Overall, a unique and epic beer, that ranks with the best I've ever had.

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!
