I ordered a 20oz glass at a bar today. It was quite full so not a lot of head. Pour was hazy reddish and cold. After taking a few sips there was some lacing but not much. Could be the glass.

I found the aroma to have some nice piney and spicy notes which were a little overpowering to smell any malt.
On the mouth I noticed that the flavour held the piney notes and a little citrus maybe, but was more balanced with malt. This beer left a crisp tangy feel in the mouth with a nice bitter finish and aroma of the hops.
Overall I like this beer and would definitely have it again.

Growler picked up at the brewery and consumed a few hours later. From notes.

A - Poured reddish/dark orange in colour with a haze. Strong carbonation coming up to a two finger fluffy off white head. Great thick lace and a half finger of retention.

S - Grain, orange, peach, earth, dirt.

T - Grain, peach again, earth, extracty, some diacetyl.

M - Mild carbonation, slick body, medium bitterness.

O/D - Not that tasty. Passable but definitely nothing I'd revisit. Needs work.
