Appearance - Pours a very amber orange. pretty good lacing and a little cloudy,

Smell - Smells like a strong pale ale with light hop qualities. Nothing too special.

Taste - Tastes like a toned down pale ale. Very smooth all throughout with a slight pine taste. It is quite bitter and hoppy. I was enjoying it at first; but then came kind of a dirty taste which was not so good. The pine lingers in your mouth for far too long and becomes unpleasant.

Mouthfeel - Sweeter with a low hop profile. Slightly bitter at times.

Drinkability - While quite drinkable, it just wasn't interesting. I couldn't get the raw pine taste to diminish from my taste buds.

Verdict - I started off liking this beer; but then it just became dissatisfying and boring. It got a sort of unpleasant sewage taste to accompany it after a few sips as well.
