Slightly hazy orange/yellow with a beautifully frothy off-white head. Great retention. Fantastic aroma with fresh hops, citrus, potpourri, honeycomb and wheat grass. Hearty, creamy, bold, pungent aroma. Smooth earthy hops with tangy grapefruit, tart orange and lemon rinds on the first sip, moves into a creamier body with rich malts and rolled wheat flavors. Finish is smooth and dry.

Appearance- hazey golden color with visible particles floating around.

Smell- dominant smell is pine needles.

Taste- I get nice floral notes, more than the smell would indicate but the pine isn't far behind. Just the right amout of bitterness lingers, not enough to over power.

Mouthfeel- medium body that washes over the tounge but doesn't leave a thick resiny feel afterward.

Overall- Ill buy this for $9 a six pack all day long vs hopslam at $16. One of Bells best IMO.

A: A nice copper amber color with a finger of a white soap bubble head. Its sticking around pretty nicely.

S: Very floral and piney smelling. A bit of fresh citrus zest in the nose as well.

T: Has some spice in it, very earthy. The hops are present but not in your face. More citrus is coming with each sip. A bitter and very dry finish. Don't get much malt, the hops and resin flavors dominate

M: very easy drinking. it has a medium body with just a small amount of carbonation. goes down smooth!

O: This will definitely stand out as a very earthy APA. Would go great on a camping trip. I could drink this alone or with a meal. Very good beer!

Pours amber, almost orange, single finger head. Noticeable lacing, but not over the top.

Smells of pine resin with a hint of floral accents. Smell matches the taste almost perfectly. Smell is very potent.

Drinks smooth. The alcohol is hidden very well on this one. Not nearly as bitter as some IPA's. Hoppiness isn't over the top.

A very good beer overall. Certainly worth drinking on multiple occasions, great that it is year round and easy to find fresh. Not that expensive either (10.99 a 6 pack for a 7% ABV beer is right in the middle of the price range, imo). A great job from Bell's.
