A- a lovely clear caramel with a billowy white head. The head dissipates in fairly short order but lasts around the glass' circumference and leaves big lacing

S- big caramel malt coupled with citrus hops

T- tastes like it smells, which is a really good thing

M- a nice fullness to it. Not too heavy or light

O- a great big Pale Ale

Poured into a mug cause it's all I had. Frothy head with a copper color. Aroma is almost stale adjunct...maybe a result of the mug. Flavor is without much bitter and slightly watered down. Malt flavor and a tinge of hops. Didn't finish clean. Medium carbonation. Session beer mouthfeel. I'll have to re-rate when I have something other than a penguin Christmas mug.

Can poured to a Sam Adams pint glass.

A - Light amber with plenty of haze. Ivory head falls to a persistent thin layer that leaves nice lacing down the glass.

S - Hops dominate. Piney and resiny, with citrus in the background. Ligth sweet, toasted bread malt comes though as the beer warms.

T - A bit more balanced than the aroma. Lots of hops, with a complex blend of pine, resin, and citrus. Hop bitterness is medium-high, but there is substantial supporting malt that balances more than an IPA.The malt is lightly sweet, grainy and a bit toasty. Bitterness lingers long into the finish a lot like an IPA.

M - Medium body and medium-high carbonation leads to a nice dry, almost astringent finish. Alcohol is very well hidden.

O - One of my new favorite PA, and a likely go-to for a regular fridge stock.

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.
