I can't say enough about this beer. This is my go to brew. When poured it has a beautiful golden appearance. It smells very hoppy with a fruitiness tone, I get the cascade hops instantly. Every bottle I have tried has the same crisp, full , fresh taste! Like I said , If I am having trouble deciding, I always grab a 6 of this.

A - clear golden color

S - very potent hoppy aroma with an almost odd sweet smell to it

T - hoppiness is the dominant characteristic. i can barely taste the wheat flavor, however its a good blend that allows for a sweet wheaty finish

M - feels full bodied yet not as full as many pales.

O - a clean pale with just a hint of sweetness that balances nicely.

Poured this into a snifter in order to best capture all the aromatic qualities.
The body is a clear golden amber, with a creamy white pillow of a head that soon sinks but never leaves.
A potent caramel freight train makes it's way up your nasal passages, lugging along a hefty amount of tangerines, orange creamsicles, apricots, black pepper, and rock candy, then slams into your frontal lobe in a fiery crash. This should make the news.
That same train enters the palate and explodes into a three ring circus of spicy, piney, sweet, and citrusy indulgence.
The mouthfeel is light and easy. This brew massages the throat all the way down and the high ABV of 7.50% leaves you with a rather happy ending.
Overall, I couldn't be anymore impressed.

Tasted 7 March 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours clear golden orange. Nice column of bubbles rising up. One and a half fingers of pure white head, dense and foamy. Great retention, leaving truly lace-like lacing on the inside of the glass.

Smell is an interesting mix. Lightly sweet, melony fruit, with a burst of citrus on top of it. Good stuff.

Taste is similar to the smell - melon, sweet, and a punch of orange juice. There's a little pineapple zing in the finish, too. Oddly fruity, like a tropical punch. Liking it more as I make my way through the glass. Different, and mighty tasty.

Mouthfeel is pleasant. Light body, plenty of smooth carbonation. Nice.

A really interesting beer. Very fruity, in a varied way, like beer fruit punch. Unlike any other beer I've had, and quite enjoyable.
