Poured into a goblet, yellow-amber color, with a nice looking head that had some staying power. Aroma was extremely pilsner-like, I thought, and while I like a good pilsner here and there, I didn't buy a pilsner, and was therefore a little thrown by the zingy grass and breadiness. I should mention I don't drink a lot of pale ales, though I do like SN's (of course, who doesn't?). I guess I was expecting more hoppiness given the story about St. Lupulin tending to his hops and the hop field design on the label, and there is some, but it's not really up front. In fact, this beer is just so balanced, just so medium across the board (medium body, medium hops, medium malt) that it was hard for me to identify this beer's particular character. I mean, where's the hook? What's the angle here? Very drinkable, and you could probably drink these all day long and not get tired of them, though the 6+% abv kind of excludes it from a sessionable as well. Good, but just confused as to where they were going with this.

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic
L: pale gold ... yellow ... not much of a head, white, does stick
S: citrus, a bit bitter (grapefruit-like) with some skunk -- the bottle isn't clear, but there's clearly some skunk in this
T: citrusy, a bit sweet ... not quite a candied orange but in that direction; a ton of grain for an American IPA ... still bitter with some grapefruit. it leans all on the citrus side.
F: solid, not remarkable, plenty of carbonation despite a pretty flat pour
O: a good beer but not one of a kind -- it's got good citrus notes, and the bitter bite is there but very manageable. tastes good, and I'd have no problem drinking this all the time, but I can name 20 other American IPAs just as good or better
