Had this on 2011-01-06 in Columbia, PA in a growler from The Fridge 30 minutes ago.
A - Pretty clear, honey gold with a 1-finger white head and minor lacing into a nonic glass.
S - Honey, mango, pineapple, hop floral. A very inviting, soft and elegant smell. Doesn't flare your nostrils like a Heady-Topper but it is engaging.
T - Honey and tropical sweetness, crushed hop cone oils, citrus, light toast, floral hops, orange, pineapple, light astringent, citrus zest bitterness. The alcohol is evident but well-integrated and supportive. The aftertaste lasts-and-lasts with citrus bitterness, hop oils and some honey and citrus flesh sweetness and a light touch of malt to even things out a bit. Just a fabulous flavor.
M - Medium mouthfeel and light-medium carbonation. Smooth, resinous and lightly prickly.
O - There's a reason this has such a high rating. It's not in your face like some, it's not the most fragrant, but the balance, softness, mouthfeel and fabulous flavor put it way up there in my ratings.
