A - The beer poured a clear, golden amber color, which produced a 2-finger, white, foamy head that was very well retained and produced some nice lacing.
S - For a Pale Ale, this had a very strong aroma to it, but what else would I expect from this brewer, right? The beer gave off a very nice pale malt aroma with some nice pine and citrus hops.
T - The taste of the beer was pretty well balanced, I thought, both the nice malt flavors were there along with some nice pine and citrus hops. Very well done.
M - The beer had a light-er feel to it, very smooth, the right carbonation and extremely easy to drink. The beer also had a nice hoppy aftertaste, but not too hoppy. Perhaps the beer was hoppier than expected from an APA, but this is easily one of the best APAs that I have tried. This will be a constant in the beer fridge. How this beer is not in the Top 50 of APAs I do not know.

Picked up a couple of singles from Total Wine at the end of April for $1.99 each. Bottled on 3/26/2014.
Beer poured orange with a nice white head upon the initial pour.
Nose is primarily malty with a hint of citrus.
Taste is pretty well balanced between the malts and citrus hops. The alpha hopping used wins out in the end and leave a nice citrus rind lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is decently carbonated to provide a nice refreshing finish.
Overall an above average APA that provides what a pale ale is supposed to do - this is a nice refreshing bitter beer, kind of similar to some of the session IPA's available today.
