STYLE: Strong Ale
APPEARANCE: Amber-red with good clarity
HEAD: Tan-head, fades quickly
NOSE: Smells like a pine tree air freshener at first blush. As it warms, some juniper and gin notes are present and a fair amount of vanilla, cinnamon, and other less-apparent spices.
TASTE: Like licking a pine tree. It actually has some nice, well-rounded sweetness, and a decent bitter bite at the end, but it’s hard to get past that massive spruce flavor up front. It’s just too much….wickedly off-balance.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-bodied, but drinks heavier thanks to weak carbonation
DRINKABILITY: Bleh. If I wanted to drink a pine-scented candle, I’d drunk a fucking pine-scented candle.
RATING: 1.5 Hops
