L: Opaque milky orange, with very little head. Nice lacing, though.

S: Tons of sweet orange, white peach, grapefruit, and pineapple; honey, crackers, and almost a touch of biscuit.

T: Same as the nose. Haha.

F: Medium, light carbonation, smooth and silky.

O: Very good. As good as last year's, if not better.

Appearance: golden and bright with minimal haze. The head is an off-white 1/2 finger with only fair retention.

Aroma: hop aroma is a combination of fresh spruce tips and pineapple. No malt present in the nose.

Flavor: malt is present but light with toasted malt flavor. Hop flavor most closely resembles pineapple. Well "rounded." Loads of hops without being overly bitter. No alcohol flavor.

Mouthfeel: spot on. You could drink several of these, but that is not to say this beer is thin.

Overall: damn tasty. Very well balanced and rounded.

Fantastic. Smells like hops and pineapple, with a tad bit of honey. The taste is the same, and is very well balanced. Great hop backbone supports some upfront fruit. Again, tad but of honey in the favor but it is hardly noticeable. Great beer!
