Poured from a bomber a hazy dull honey gold with a thin head that faded quickly. Smell was a dull floral with hints of citrus, overall the appearance & smell failed to scream "drink me" but nothing that I could put my finger on. The first sip was satisfyingly hoppy for a Pale with a bitter bite that struck first. The follow was a thin flavor of citrus and malt sweetness that bloomed and vanished, leaving only hops and it's bitter bite.
As a Pale, this beer has a backbone and bite that often is lacking in the breed. This comes at the expense of balance and malt underpinnings. This is a pale for hopheads. It's brighter than most IPAs and lacks some of the sometimes cloying piny viscosity of bigger IPAs. This is a good thing as March fades and the promise of April and spring is around the corner. A very nice summer beer.

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.
