A - Clear, light amber brew. Big, pillowy, off-white head sinks down to a sticky cap that leaves some nice lacing behind.
S - Piney and floral hops dominate the nose. Does hint at some bready maltiness underneath.
T/M - Really comes together well. Like the nose, the piney and floral hops really shine. Balanced fairly well with a nice malt backbone. Finishes with a pleasant citrus rind bitterness. A bit over medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.
O - Good brew. Good price point. Cans definitely make this a nice option.

poured this into a pilsner glass (Blue Moon) just for grins, and because I plan on drinking some real crap later as a science experiment... nice bright orange and caramel-y color with a medium thick creamy head. smell is slightly hoppy with an amateurish kind of aroma to it also... taste is caramel malts with hops and slight abrasive bitterness at the end. some fruits in there on the middle of the tongue.
overall, a decent brew. not terribly bad in any way and I nice 7.2% abv.... now, on to the CRAP!!!! tally ho!
