poured a clear copper color into a pint glass, lots of white fluffy head. smells like a hoppy forest of pine and honey. seriously, straight up pine trees and sweet honey. the taste doesn't fall far from the (pine tree).. lots of hop flavors explode in your mouth as you take the first sip.. bitter, sweet, citrusy - every hop profile seems to appear in this fine beverage! it's a medium body beer but goes down like a light bodied beer - perfect carbonation, lacing to the bottom of the glass.. this beer is excellent.

Pours an amber orange color with a thick off white head. Plenty of lacing on the glass.

Smells of a big citrus and pine flavor. A little maltiness can also be found.

Tastes of the big citrus and pine hops upfront with a good malty backbone to support it. The malt is a nice sweet caramel malt. This is not unbalanced.

The mouthfeel has a medium body with a creamy and smooth finish.
