Poured from a can into a nonic pint.
A - Pours a clear light gold, with a fluffy three-finger crème colored head. Strong head retention. Impressive lacing.
S - A pretty potent and deep blend of west coast hops; getting pine, grass, and fruity notes. Not much of a malt presence, but a sweet note does come out as it warms.
T - Oh wow. This brew brings lots of hops, but also a nice balance with a sweetish malt underbody that plays off the bitterness really well. As far as hops, they are blended so well that no one hop variety stands clear; you get a little spruce, a little mint, a lot of citrus, some mango, and even a hint of earthiness. Somehow manages to pack a lot of hop punch without excess alpha acids, which make this a very smooth drink. Delicious.
M - Medium bodied, high to medium carbonation. Drying finish leaves you craving the next sip.
O - A very hoppy APA, almost so much that it's probably closer to an IPA, but man is this well put together. Basically a good IPA with the acidity dialed down and the malts dialed up. All the components compliment each other nicely. I could easily finish a six'er of this and not get tired of it.

COD 4/21/14. Pours a clear almost medium amber with a nice dark ruby tint. Tremendous head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice nose of tropical citrus hops over a pine and light caramel background. Medium body with an almost slick texture. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors found in the nose, then rapidly flows to a pine focused hop bitterness over a slightly tart note. As the bitterness fades, a light caramel sweetness emerges in the effervescent finish. A tart pine bitterness with hints of spice lingers.
