A- a clear, golden pale ale. Not much foam at the top from the bottle (I don't usually do vigorous pours), but decent lacing.
S- delicious: fruity, tangy, and exceptionally crisp.
T- as with the aroma: lots of citrus tang and a great, crisp bitterness on the finish. Hops are up front and last throughout, but not overwhelming.
M- just a tad bit thin, especially for the crispness of the beer, but still quite decent.
D- a great session beer, easily drinkable, this was one of my favorite go-to beers for quite a long time and is still high on the list, as it's readily available.

Bottled beer served in a glass.
Golden/amber, hazy, with a fine suspended sediment. Very little effervescence. Moderate head, with moderate longevity.
Fruity and refreshing aromas of pine, citrus, banana and honey.
Overall a very bitter and hoppy beer. Sips reveal citrus and banana notes, with a dominant grapefruit flavour. Banana cake flavours become more prominent when swallowed. Finishes with a bitter, cut grass after-taste.
A beer that feels clean and as light as air. The light carbonation provides a slight numbing tingle. A refreshing beer that goes down easily.
A refreshing and fruity beer; an APA which ventures towards IPA territory being hop-rich. Full of flavour with a pleasant albeit slightly weak aroma, and plenty of complexity to enjoy. The bitter, grassy after-taste can linger and be a touch overpowering at times; it's best to let this one warm a bit to balance the flavours a bit more. One that's definitely worth a try.
