Finally got my hands on a six pack of this. I'd heard so many positive things about it, so I'm quite excited to finally be able to review this. It has a dark honey pour, very slightly cloudy with a thin foam head and very fine lacing. Scent of grapefruit, pine, earthiness, and more mellow citrus. So far nothing particularly out of the ordinary. Upon first sip, I figure out what its all about. Extremely well balanced combination of hops and malts that continue to mellow out in the aftertaste. I taste a hint of caramel in the aftertaste too, a really fantastic brew. Mouthfeel is perfect, light carbonation and a certain heaviness to it. Highly recommended!

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!
