A- This beer has a gold/light amber color to it. Very clear with no sediment. Tight little white head. Ok lacing. Looks decent.
S- Smells like...well...marijuana. Honestly, i get dank herbal and slightly citrusy notes. Theres just a touch of sweet malt in there as well. Very nice aroma.
T- Very good. Sweet up front. The middle is filled with juicy, refreshing citrusy, grassy hop flavor. It finishes with a kind of honey sweetness and a lingering hop flavor. Really nice.
M-Lighter bodied and somewhat oily. Pretty highly carbonated but it lightens this up nicely. Pretty good mouthfeel in relation to the flavors.
O- Wow. Didn't expect to like this beer as much as i do. I would almost say it tastes like a hop-flavor forward, juicy APA to me. Not sure exactly what they mean by "british style ale," but if you like pretty sessionable, herbal/citrus hoppy pale ales, seek this one out.

03/04/14 On tap. Very nice stuff. This shows how a well behaved member of the hop family of brews can please and I am very pleased. Wonderful balance. Smells hoppier than it tastes. Good cold. Doesn't look like I'll get try it at room temp. At 6.5% this should be monitored carefully as it very deceptive & delicious.
***Note: Not sure why I dis'sed the nitro experience last year (see below). It may be that the nitro addition of more fizz let the temperature raise & open up too much hoppiness. Note the mention of "good cold". I tend to forgive the author as he's usually drinking on the job. Jul'14
08/20/13 On nitro tap. Let me start by saying that I'm not a hops fan, but this is beer reinforce that. This is the first time I've ever truly regret not having had a taste first. I've spent the money & will drink it down, as not to fret the bar, but this should have a warning label. IMO this is way off base & I see the Rate Beer give it an 88 rating? A jaundiced view, no doubt.
