Served on cask at Three Floyd's in an Imperial pint glass
A - deep orange brown in color with a nice thick 1"+ head. The lacing was so sticky it looked like there was masking tape inside the glass. The head dissipated to a nice 1/4" cap that remained there for the entire time.
S - a couple different citrus notes, grapefruit, orange peel, some earthiness and a bit of pine.
T - the pine and earthiness dominates over the citrus. Nice malt balance.
M - the carbonation is nice and the balance of hop and ABV is really spot on.
O - finally reviewed after drinking on - tap previously and in bottle several times. On cask seemed to really accentuate the carbonation, it was really smooth. This beer is always available but when I saw it on cask I had to give it a try, we'll worth it and as Three Floyd's "everyday" beer, its always a good solid option.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my Branchline tumbler. Bottle dated 1/16/14. Right at two months.
Gold brown put with thick white head. Liners and left a lot of lacing. Dark for a pale.
Pine and bread in the aroma. Like a bakery in a forest.
Smooth and balanced. The second best balance I've ever had with a hoppy beer (after Pliny). Herbal, grassy up front with a pine after-taste.
Smashing pale ale. I think the best I've tried. Thanks to BeerJesus for this throw in!
