Poured a cloudy reddish gold with two finger head and lace patches down the glass over a aroma of dirty, earth hops and a touch of malt. The beer is not watery but real light as it is mostly hoppy and not too balanced, but thankfully not overhopped so it isn't overly bitter or dry. The lack of balance from the malts leads to a mostly decent but not real good hoppy beer that isn't bad but I don't need a second.

Golden amber colored with decent clarity and a minuscule bit of foam covering part of the top of the beer. Faint piney hop aroma. The taste is much more bitter than the aroma implies. Deep pine hop flavor that definitely grows in intensity throughout the fade. The bitterness from the hops definitely pricks the tongue.

Pours a nice clear medium amber with a hint of red. Ample head and a lacing that lasts. Nice nose of citrus hops over a slight pine and slight sweet biscuit character. Light body with a smooth texture. Above average carbonation. Nice balanced taste of hops, mostly citrus but with a notable pine influence, biscuit and bitterness. It begins with citrus, progresses to pine and associated pleasant bitterness over a biscuit sweetness. It then effervesces into a tart bitterness that approaches dry. A slight sweetness and tart bitterness lingers. Very well balanced and flavorful.
