12 oz, bottled 2/5/13, served into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very clear light amber with a two finger head. There is noticeable lacing as well.

Smell: potent resinous-piney hops, some grapefruit, malt, and floral hints.

Taste: huge bittersweet hops, lots of pine, grapefruit, citrus, and caramel malts. Huge bitter aftertaste, and a tiny hint of warmth/booze.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, nicely carbonated. Very flavorful stuff.

Overall: This is a very balanced beer and the alcohol is masked very well by the huge hops and malt backbone. Tasty brewski here.
