A coworker picked this up for me while eh was in WI last week.
A: This pours a moderately hazy amber with a slight orange highlights. The rocky, off-white head seems to last forever and leaving some lacing on the glass. It poured with about a finger of foam to start.
S: The nose is awesome with an intense hop aroma of pineapple, moderately-high pine, citrus and mango. Moderate grassiness and a low fruity ester. There is a mild biscuit, light malt sweetness in the back.
T: The malt profile reminds me that oh yeah this is a pale ale, not one of the better smelling IPAs. The moderately-high hops flavors of pineapple, citrus and pine dominate the flavor along with a moderately-high hops bitterness. There is a little bit of malt support but no caramel like an IPA, just a slight malt sweetness and flavor. The balance is all hops and bitterness with a lingering bitterness and a dry finish. A lime-like fruitiness becomes evident as it comes up to temperature.
M: It's got a moderately-light body with a moderately-high carbonation. There is a very slight creaminess and not astringency.
O: What an impressive if not wildly unbalanced Pale Ale that serves as a wonderful showcase for the hops.

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.
