look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Hazy orange-brown body, off white head, quick fade to a persistent cap, tight lacing. Nice looking beer.

S - Spicy hop, pine, a bit of caramel.

T - Strong caramel malts, lemon hint, resin, and a strongly bitter finish. The turn in the close reaches aspirin, detracting from the nice open and middle.

M - Mild carbonation, very chewy, with a dry close.

O - Love the malt, and solid hop highlights, but a harsh close makes this less satisfying than it could be.

Poured from bottle to pint glass. Pour is a dark amber color with a finger of foam that's here and gone. Minimal lacing left behind. Aroma is citrus with some toasted malt. Flavor hits you with a piney, resinous flavor right up front, then rides a toasted malt flavor to a dry, citrus finish.

(Served in tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a deep toffee color with a thin yellowish-beige head.

S- The pine resin hops lead to toasted wheat aromas in the finish.

T- The pine resin takes on a nice pungent flavor with some cat pee notes in the finish. The full pungent flavor lingers but there is no bitterness with it. The pale malt has a kind of flat taste with some toasted malt hints coming through in the finish.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel leads to a gentle fizz.

O- This is a nice big pungent hop beer with some softer malt support.

nice burnt orange color body, hoppy aroma, good bitter pine hop forward with a little lager on the back of the tongue. Very good, enjoyable beer.

12 fl. oz. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

L - It makes a beautiful pour. It's burnt orange body is crystal clear, and it is topped with four inches of beige head that clings to the side of the glass.

S - The smell is full of citrus aromas, and the malt is well represented, too.

T - The taste starts out with a little toasted malt. Then the hops take over. It has citrus flavors with grapefruit taking over and leaving a bitter aftertaste.

F - Medium

O - This is one of the better beers that I have tried from Short's. It is an enjoyable hoppy amber ale.
