I've enjoyed this beer for years now, but thought it deserved a review regardless; should have done this a long time ago...
A: A beautiful golden orange, superb clarity, medium lacing and head retention.
S: Smells SO yummy, lots of hop aroma, citrus and pine dominate the nose, with a hint of earth on the back end.
T: Great hop flavor with not a lot of bitterness. Citrus/grapefruit tastes, along with a solid malt backbone, a perfectly balanced pale ale in my opinion.
M: Perfectly carbonated, medium to full body, wet.
O: One of my favorite, if not THE favorite "commercial" (larger brewery) pale ales, keep up the great work SN!!

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!
