look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: I am serving this well chilled in my Strongbow tumbler. It pours a rich pinesap color with a nice tight head. The brew stays hazy as I hold it up to the light.

Smell: big grapefruit notes with some hints of butterscotch and faint pine resin. It is actually very similar to a barleywine.

Taste: sweet candied dark fruit seems to dominate with piney and floral hops. The taste is good but unbalanced. The hops seem to be all over the place. The finish is dry with faint hop oils.
