Got this in a monster box from Maximumu13. Thanks again.
Poured from a bottle, unknown freshness
A - Significant 3-4 inch head of foam on top of a transparent honey type color. Not much else to say, looks like it should.
S - just tons and tons of floral and citrus hops. Orange and lemon peels, grassy type notes, some really thick juicy type citrus in there as well. Really rich spectrum of smells without being overbearing.
T - Really awesome. Balance! Follows the nose almost exactly, without the grass notes. Basically, just see the smell description. Again, just great balance. Just exactly enough bitterness to make it crisp. This is awesome, you could drink about a million of these and keep enjoying.
M - Nailed it. Medium carb, really get presentation of the hop.
O - Pretty much lives up to the hype. It definitely deserves the top spot among pale ales, as it absolutely nails the style.

Poured into a tulip glass. The liquid is a hazy orange with plenty of bubbles rising slowly to the surface. The pour kicks up a huge off-white frothy head that makes pouring the entire bottle at once difficult, and leaves sheets of lace until the beer is completely gone.
Aroma is wonderful dank hops - pine, grapefruit, oranges, hints of weed. Hints of sugar-cookie malts complement the hops while still allowing the hops to dominate. Exactly the type of aromas I love from hops.
The taste follows up on all the hop flavors from the nose. Even though it's technically only a pale ale, there is no doubt that this is a tongue-scraping hop assault - but just done at the perfect volume. It's bitter and drying, but not too much, and there's just enough of a kiss of smooth malt flavor to keep it in check. Aftertaste is dank hops and a bit of caramel and resin.
Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Medium- to light-bodied, with a moderate amount of carbonation. Perfect for the style.
Overall, a really great pale ale - totally lives up to the hype. Nice hop profile, even if a bit one-dimensional, nice malt balance, nice mouthfeel, nice everything. Thanks to batfireman for the trade!
