Pine Belt Pale Ale

473 mL can as pictured in the BA db. Thanks to stopbarking for the chance to try this one.
Clouded amber pour with an excellent head, retention and lace are good too. It looks pretty darn good.
Nose and tastes remind me of a MUCH higher ABV, higher hopped DIPA. It has that cloying DIPA sweetness and a strong cloying hop based aftertaste. A bit “West Coast” in terms of the taste.
Very odd beer that drinks in a completely different manner than I was expecting. Alcohol seems stronger than the advertised ABV and the strong, sugary notes are difficult to avoid. Weird.
