Rtrain12 shared his growler of this fine beer with me... Just getting around to typing my notes up.
I poured this into a standard pint glass.
Nice bright golden color with some reddish highlights. Very clear and bright with a beige head that fought its way to about 1 and half fingers. Respectable amount of lacing too.
Smells sweet with a nice fresh citrus hop note. Malt is mellow while the hops are bright and fresh. This is the pale ale equivalent of a huge Cali DIPA!! Floral and grassy notes lead into a lemony citrus bite with a slightly dry bitter finish. Very well made beer here. Big on flavor, but refreshing and light at the same time.
The body is a little light of medium, and the beer has loads of carbonation. This is a beer I will pick up every chance I get. Simply nothing bad to say about the flavor, nose, or finish.
My only complaint with this one is that Ryan didn't tape his growler up and much of the carbonation has run out of the bottle on me. I can live with that because even with less carbonation than it should have, the beer still tastes amazing.

Thanks to my awesome girlfriend for picking up this gem...
Poured from 16oz can into fluted snifter/fat tulip/whatever. Mostly clear honey orange color with a nice fluffy snow white head that fades a bit then slows down, fed by lively carbonation. Nice solid lacing is left as it slowly descends from there.
Smell is awesome; floral, clean malt, bright citrus and slight tropical fruit, with a bit of dank herbal.
Taste is very crisp, simple floral and bitter citrus rind hops with ghostly tropical fruit and sweeter citrus, clean grassy flavors. This is complex, flavorful but light on the palate and drinkable as hell. I could slam these all day, in the best way.
Mouthfeel is light, crisp and clean. Wet, not sticky at all. Awesome and refreshing
Overall, this is the best session beer I've had. Very light in the mouth, but full in flavor, crisp and clean, amazingly well done.
