(Served in tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a deep toffee color with a thin yellowish-beige head.

S- The pine resin hops lead to toasted wheat aromas in the finish.

T- The pine resin takes on a nice pungent flavor with some cat pee notes in the finish. The full pungent flavor lingers but there is no bitterness with it. The pale malt has a kind of flat taste with some toasted malt hints coming through in the finish.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel leads to a gentle fizz.

O- This is a nice big pungent hop beer with some softer malt support.

nice burnt orange color body, hoppy aroma, good bitter pine hop forward with a little lager on the back of the tongue. Very good, enjoyable beer.

12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

L - It makes a beautiful pour. It's burnt orange body is crystal clear, and it is topped with four inches of beige head that clings to the side of the glass.

S - The smell is full of citrus aromas, and the malt is well represented, too.

T - The taste starts out with a little toasted malt. Then the hops take over. It has citrus flavors with grapefruit taking over and leaving a bitter aftertaste.

F - Medium

O - This is one of the better beers that I have tried from Short's. It is an enjoyable hoppy amber ale.
