Wow. I was in Rochester NY and picked up some local beers to bring home to Cincinnati. Drinking it icy cold. What a pleasant surprise this is. Great hoppy and smooth delivery. Highly recommended.

22oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Poured a nice cloudy apricot color with a big 2½-finger white head, but the head looked like dish soap and was very unappealing. The head dissipated quickly but left some decent lacing.

Very weak nose with a hint of pine and some orange peel.

So much for their claim that the bitterness is mild. It's so pine heavy that I thought I was drinking a bottle of Pinesol and the bitterness is off the charts.. If you can get past the total pine domination there are a few other fruits underneath and a minimal malt presence. Their label says that this is like walking into a pine forest and ending up in a citrus field. What it should have said is it's like walking into a pine forest and getting lost in it because the pine is so thick.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Sorry, but I'm not partial to beers that taste like cleaning fluid. I will say the closer this got to room temperature the better it tasted, so let it warm up a bit to kill some of the bitterness.
