Had this after an Iron Horse from the same brewery, slightly preferred the taste of the Iron Horse. Woodchipper is more bitter, with less of the subtle hops flavors.

Thanks goes out to sembo for this brew.

12 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malts, pretty nice citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. This is my 50th state brew, finally. Thanks Eric!

Served on draft at the brewery on a beuatiful but hot summer day. Pretty solid beer. Loaded with pine and citrus hops with a welcoming malt backbone. I normally like the hop bitterness but I could feel this one getting away without the malt presence. Aroma was piney, flavor was more citrus with fresh grains. Great on the tongue with a sharp carbonation bite.

Dark gold/pale auburn (9 to 12) with fluffy white head; long lasting cap and heavy lacing; good clarity. Pine and citrus hop nose; pine and grapefruit upfront followed by caramel malt and lite bitter hops. Medium lite mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice lite bitter citrus linger.

12oz can poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy orange with a hint of brown and a thick head
S: Pleasant orange/grapefruit with light pine/grass
T: Matches the nose though less fruit, more grass and less interesting
M: Medium-bodied, a touch sweet
O: I get the feel this may be a bit old (no clear freshness date) so it may score a bit better on tap
