16oz can courtesy of Duffman929. No evident printed date, but it's fresh.
A: Poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy deep golden color with a half finger of straw-colored head dissipating to a spotty film. Some sticky lacing.
S: A strong burst of hops explodes from the can -- some pine and tons of citrus. The sweetness of pineapples and tropical fruits is balanced by an earthy malt sweetness.
T/M: Hop bitterness is evident through the entire sip, arriving with a mild bitterness tempering malt sweetness and lingering on the finish. The malt backbone is light, but provides a bready sweetness that pairs with the citrus of the hops in a pleasant way through the middle of the sip. A very fresh, slightly earthy and grainy flavor is evident toward the finish. Mouthfeel is on the lighter end of medium with plenty of carbonation to hold up the beer -- very nice.
O: I'm not much of a pale ale fan, but I was very impressed by this brew. Fresh I can think of very few things I'd rather have on an easygoing afternoon -- this beer is wonderfully drinkable. I am really a fan of the hop selection for this, although maybe it's just a little too bitter. I'd definitely drink this again, though, and would probably keep it on-hand if I had regular access to it.

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.
