Ordered a pint of this at The Gun Barrel in Jackson, WY a few nights ago. Following review composed from notes.
Served in a standard American pint glass.
Appearance: Pale gold body shows perfect clarity and gentle carbonation. A thin, white cap sits on top and leaves notch-like rings of lace on the glass walls.
Smell: Crystal malts and dinner rolls make up the malt aspect; lemon zest and soft pine resin show the hop side. A very mild aroma overall. No off-flavors that I can discern, but pretty bland as well.
Taste: Follows the nose very closely, with sweet bread, lemon zest, and pine resin all playing major roles. Hops meld with bready yeast in modestly bitter, somewhat grassy, finish.
Mouthfeel: Light and easy with mild bitterness and fine carbonation. I wish this had a bit more body and bitterness, but it's certainly smooth.
Overall: Very smooth and well-crafted, but also very mild. I'd prefer a bit more boldness and kick, but that's me. For those Trader Joe's shoppers out there, think Mission St. Pale Ale.
Serving type: on-tap

Hazy orange color with a thin thick head with low retention and leaving some laces.
Nice aroma of fresh oranges, honey and biscuit malt.
Taste follows nose, crisp citric flavor with notes of predominant fresh oranges, later grapefruit, just a bit of pine and caramel. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with perfect carbonation.
Straight forward APA, but extremely refreshing and easy to drink. Great if you want to session with an APA with less pine and more citrusy. I could drink this the whole day.

3.76/5 rDev +1.1%

Served from a 12oz brown bottle at The Granary (Jackson Hole, WY). Reviewed from notes.
A: Dusky amber with a hint of sunlight yellow poking through with a 1/2-finger frothy small bubbled off-white head with decent retention and a thin line of lacing.
S: Light caramel malt is dominated by grapefruit, pine, and citrus hops
T: Solid APA flavor, not flashy, but it gets the job done and matched well with my underwhelming pasta primavera-like entree. The malt component is more than adequate with a solid caramel and bready/light toast combination. Hops are ahead, but the beer is balanced. Grapefruit, pine resin, and orange are the chief flavors with a little bit of grassiness/herbal character. A good hosp complexity overall. No yeast component detectable and the bitterness is a touch under moderate.
M: Good dryness with a light-medium body and even carbonation. Very drinkable.
O: Another very god effort from Snake River Brewing. I have tried 3 beers this trip and all have been very good, spanning from hoppy (SR APA and Pako's IPA) to bready (SR Lager). Check these guys out if you are in Jackson Hole or the surrounding area.

4.11/5 rDev +10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Into a pint glass:
A: mostly clear golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies within twenty seconds, some light clingy spotty foamy lacing graces the sides of the pint glass
S: light amount of citrus/orange coming forth in the hops, and another light amount of pine coming through, ever so slight amount of malts
T: mainly bittersweet and smooth, no aftertaste, dry finish
M: light, sessionable, slightly sharp carbonation but still good for the style and leads to a good smooth feel coming all around
O: I would say this is pretty good for the style and very good to me, I would definitely have this again
