On tap at the source
Mostly clear light golden color with a huge bubbly head. Earthy pine with a very slight Belgian yeasty or plastic phenol. Wicked carbonic bite on the tongue. Decent but seems way over carbonated as did the other beer I tried today.

From notes, On-tap at the brewery on 10-18-13

A - Clear gold with two fingers of white sudsy head, thick lacing.
S - Very citrusy, nice fresh grassy tones, light pine, a little dank.
T - Bready malt base with a really nice citrus taste, some spicy rye on the end.
M - Refreshing a tad sticky
O - Great APA, tons of flavor, well balanced.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, straw-gold coloring with a frothy, foamy, bright white head. Good retention and great cling. Nose of resiny hops, heavy pine and pitch, with a subtle toasty backbone. Wow! Flavors of rich toast and floral notes forward, with a bitter and resin hops follow. Very balanced, with a biscuit and bitter aftertaste. Hoppy enough to challenge IPAs. Dry, clean finish, with a bitter hop linger. Awesome beer!
