Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #35 (Dec 2009):
A bit of haze sits on the orangey-gold color; gets a bit clearer when it gains some warmth. Sudsy head that all beers wish for straddles the inside of the glass. Raw prickly citric rind and pine sap in the nose, West Coast-style all the way. Super smooth, bitty with some substance on the palate. Hops are of the "in your face" style with a nice inner-cheek-hug- ging bitterness and citric bam that makes your mouth pucker a bit. That pucker leads to the desire for another sip. Toasty, doughy, biscuity malts provide a great base, a little yeasty too, but mostly bready. Citric, mint, drying hoppy finish.
Old-school "microbrew" style here, fresh and raw with more than enough flavor to go around. Surpassing the benchmark.

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.
