Had on tap for the 50/50 tap takeover during SF Beer Week 2013.

Very smooth and delicious APA. Likely dry hopped but not known for certain. Can put it up with other similar hoppy pale ales; Hoppy Birthday, Zombie Dust and Row. Would like to see them all side by side. I am very much fan of this style brew, all of the flavor with less booze.

Pint on tap at the brewery. Growler domed the following day.Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours hazy honey color with a huge rocky, greasy, and oily head that slowly faded into a thick and lasting greasy film. A solid sheet of lace was left down the glass.
S: Super fresh notes of citrus hops with just a touch of mint. Hops are extremely fresh and bright smelling with grapefruit pith and sweet tangerine nectar dominating. Slightly dank hop oils as well.
T: Follows the nose with a very vibrant and fresh hop profile of sweet orange and tangerine citrus juices followed by bitter notes of grapefruit rind and just a touch of lemon zest. Mint pokes through in the finish, and the aftertaste is full of very fresh hop resin and juicy citrus. The pale malt backbone is hardly noticeable.
M: Medium-light body, crisp, clean and refreshing mouthfeel, and crisp scrubbing carbonation that is smooth. Very drinkable and light. Hop resin and oily mouthfeel but not overly greasy or heavy. Drying mouthfeel actually.
O: Extremely quaffable and refreshing all around. Had a pint at the brewery and then downed a growler at the cabin. Really great clean hop profile that isn't crushingly bitter or heavy. This should be bottled.

Served on-tap in a tulip glass. From notes.

A: Hazy golden with good lacing.

S: VERY good. Loads of hops. Fresh pine.

T: Tastes like a pale ale. Light, yeasty, and gently hopped. However, hops are citrusy and fresh. Nice, but rather unremarkable.

M: Crisp and alright. Yeasty-weird.

O: Very drinkable. Enjoyable; good pale ale. Recommended.
