A: Pretty standard for a PA. Orange, a little lacey.
S: It smells like weed. Just straight hops, but faint. It's sweet, too. Intoxicating.
T: Again, pretty standard for a PA. It's well done. A little dry, slight citrus, and decent sweetening hops. A nice sugary crystalization is there.
M: This is where this beer really does it. It's thin, but crisp. Extremely bubbly. Tingles on your toungue. Goes down fast and kicks the back of your throat like a coca-cola. Awesome.
OVERALL: I've had this beer on tap quite a few times and never understood why everyone said it was so good, but this is my first bottle. Maybe I always had bad tap lines, because this beer is amazing. It's a safe beer done perfectly. Love it.

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.
