Had this beer in 2016 and 2017. To me the only flavor is resin, not citrus or pine.

Poured from a bottle into a glass with sediment roused.

Overall: Excellent brew. Surprised at how good this is.

Look: orange tinged amber. Hazy. Frothy head that stayed til the last sip. Lacing everywhere.
Smell: fresh and juicy. Not as off-putting as an IPA can sometimes be. Fruity like fresh mango and pineapple.
Taste: very hoppy, yes. But not as extreme or unpleasant as I expected. A fruity hop burst that twisted to a sweet, bready, caramelized malt finish. An excellent balance of malts and pine.
Mouthfeel: substantial body. A little sticky. Smooth.
What a great hoppy amber ale.
