Pours a very clear, copper color with an inch of white head which dissipates quickly. The aroma is piney with lots of caramel malt and a kiss of citrus. Taste is similar to the nose. I would say the caramel malts dominate up front with pine and citrus coming through in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly with a decent amount of bitterness. Overall, a solid beer, yet unspectacular.

12oz bottle served in a snifter. Brought to me by my wife after a trip to Philadelphia. Friends brought it to her. "Freshest by" 013118.

Pours a clear light amber. Smallish head, medium carbonation. Smell is is a little pine and a little lemon.

Taste is bitter -- pine and lemon. Just enough honeysuckle sweetness in the background.

Mouthfeel is light and very dry. Overall, good beer.

From a 12 oz can, best by 12/15/17, into a nonic, pours a clear light golden amber and a big fluffy white head with great retention and lacing. The nose and taste are in line: peppery, piney, and some earthy hops on top of caramel and bready malts...a little citrus that lightens it up, too, though oily on the finish. This is a shock to the system after all the juice bombs I’ve been drinking, and the pine kind of dominates. Paired with the earthiness, this seems close to what I used to expect from old east coast ipas.

Quite piney, a little bit sticky in the mouth feel. Pleasantly bitter, but not super special. Would drink again, but it is not a favorite.
