Pours a cloudy golden amber with a quarter inch size tannish head that slowly disappears through the beers life. Minimal to no lacing. A lot of carbonation bubbles rising.
Right away, I can detect the hops. They smell of citrus with a dash of pine. Very interesting smell. I also pick up on a bit of malt.
The taste was quite surprising. This beer, even though it is an APA, to me it was very balanced. Don't get me wrong, the hops was there but not as much as I thought it would be. I also picked up on the pine taste. Very refreshing.
Feels like a light to medium bodied beer. You can feel the carbonation as it rolls around. Very clean and crisp.
I'm not a hop head by any means whatsoever, but I found this drink really enjoyable and look forward to my next encounter. Hopefully, on a warm day just after I've mowed the lawn.

The driving range and par 3 that I frequent used to have Newcastle in cans. It had been a while and I had since become a hop fan, so when I got back into golf, I was thinking "ok, it's better than ****-light". But oh, what the devil?!? They now have Sierra Nevada in cans! I took it as a good omen. (I think this beer has actually helped me with my fade.)

A great drinking beer. The appearance is a light orange with a nice white head. The smell is full of hops but does have some more earthy smells in it as well. The taste is great with a burst of hop flavor in the beginning that fades into a toasty malt flavor that finishes the beer well. I can definitely see how this one is a popular beer today.
