  • From a canned with date 06/07/17.

    Pours clear with a couple of fingers of pure white, frothy foam. Great retention with heaps of sticky lacing.

    Aroma has mild malt sweetness. Herbal, light citrus and a sense of grass share the nose.

    Sweet up front, giving way to citrus and herbal notes which turn bitter quickly. Grapefruit and the herbal are strong in the finish, lending to the bitterness.

    Medium body, at best. Dry, bitter finish. Carbonation is big for the style.

    The carbonation is bit large, making for rough edges. The amount of bitterness is over the top, possibly lent by the spruce? No matter, there is a lack of balance to this beer. Enjoy!

Then it's topped off with spruce tips from the Great Pacific Northwest, along with Zues, Centennial, El Dorado, Comet, and Simcoe hops.
