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.

Poured from a "stovepipe" can into a glass
Pours a very nice cloudy copper-orange with a one-finger, foamy head that leaves some light lacing.
The aroma is subtle; grassy, with a bit of lemon.
The taste is marvelous. I get some pine and grassiness up front with a hint of sweet nuttiness and bready malt. There is a nice, lingering bitterness.
Really like the feel of this beer. A little smooth with a nice mouth-coating quality.
Overall, a really good beer that I wish was available to me on a regular basis.
