A: Pours a coppery orange color, slightly hazy. Nice head dissipates fairly quickly, leaves nice lacing.
S: Hint of citrus and piney notes.
T: A piney hops taste is immediate on the tongue followed with a citrus bitterness. Not too brash, but a pleasing taste. Finishes with a light floral spiciness.
M: Lots of carbonation - crisp and refreshing but with enough body for a smooth swallow.
O: A classic. Great session beer. It's fairly well-balanced but with enough hoppy bitterness to make it complex and interesting. A very enjoyable drinking experience.

4.11/5 rDev +1.5%

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!
Serving type: can
