Thanks to sonoma01 for the bottle.
Pours a cloudy bright deep gold with a faint head leaving little retention.
Smells of light citrus/lemon hops with a touch of pine and malt.
The lemon comes through a lot more in the flavor. Lemon and orange hop sweetness comes off right off the bat. Not a ton of malt to this one and has a nice bitterness for an APA.
Fairly juicy hop presence and medium carbonation levels.
I was pleasantly surprised by the hop profile and this beer in general. A very good easy drinking beer I'd be happy to have again.

12oz bottle, best by 5/12/2014. Poured into an O'so snifter today, 3/24/2014.
App- Hazy light copper-orange body, one finger white head with good retention and thick, sticky lacing. Looks the part of a good American Pale Ale.
Smell- Dank, floral, grassy hops, a bit of citrus as well. Not much in way of a malt backbone. A little bit of caramel sweetness and that's about it. Hop-forward nose.
Flavour- True to the name, this is a hop-centric pale ale. Floral, dank hops dominate, supplemented by a little bit of citrus grapefruit. The pale malt backbone brings a bit of caramel and a musty graininess. Finish is a bit of citrus bitterness mixed in with some grassiness.
Mouthfeel- Thinner bodied, on the verge of watery. But easy to drink, bitter enough but not overwhelmingly bitter that it gets in the way of my enjoyment as a "just-got-home-from-work" beer. Resinous, dank and appropriately dry.
Overall- Good drinking, nice and hoppy APA. Not mindblowingly good, but a solid buy for an everyday drinking APA.
