A-pale gold with a hint of orange. thin white head. there are some bubbles
S-very hoppy, but very bold and striking. its not that citrusy but i'm getting a hint of orange. there's a good strength to it.
T-starts with an oddly bitter mixture of hops and barley. there's a bitter after-taste of barley. this is quite the simple and unexciting beer.
M-medium to high carbonation which is creamy. finish is a tad dry
D-it doesn't get any worse than the initial taste but it doesn't get any better. i've heard a lot of good things about this beer but i was really let down. this is nothing special and doesn't beat the other commonly found beers.

Poured from a can with a packaged on date of 2/4/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - dark gold; swirling carbonation that builds an ice cream sundae-like white head. Lacing is spot on!
Smell - sweet malts and a blend of grass, pine and citrus.
Taste - wonderfully balanced and complex flavors in true SN style!
Feel - about as easy drinking as you get for the style!
Overall - a bit lacking in the aroma department, but that is nitpicking a stud of a beer!
